WARROAD, Minnesota , March 7, 2022 (press release) –

To support employee well-being, the window and door manufacturer will close operations for one week and give all employees paid time off to recharge.

Marvin announced to its 7,000 employees today a special employee appreciation gift: one week of paid time off to recharge and engage in personal wellness during a year in which orders continue to be at record highs. “Better Living Week” is part of the company’s Better Living initiative, which brings its purpose – to imagine and create better ways of living – to life for its employees. Better Living Week will take place the last week in December, with Marvin shutting down operations in all manufacturing and office locations.  

“Creating better ways of living starts with our employees,” said Paul Marvin, CEO. “The thing employees consistently say they need is more paid time off to engage with their lives outside of work and additional support with their physical, mental and financial well-being during a time when we’re working harder than ever. We heard them and we’re making impactful changes – like Better Living Week – that put our people first.”  

Marvin will implement the company-wide shutdown and paid wellness week Dec. 26-30, a first for the 110-year-old family-owned business. All employees will observe Better Living Week, regardless of their job location, type, business unit or start date.  

In addition to Better Living Week, Marvin has a robust Better Living program that benefits all employees. It includes reimbursement of up to $300 to support personal well-being purchases that span far beyond fitness items to include meal delivery services, art supplies, home cleaning or plane tickets. The company is also piloting several initiatives for flexible manufacturing scheduling and 24/7 on-site resources for mental well-being. Marvin will announce additional employee-focused Better Living initiatives later this year.  

“The well-being of our employees is a top priority for us,” said Paul Marvin. “These programs go a long way in helping us retain our valued team members and attract new employees who find the Better Living support impactful to their lives.” Learn more about careers at Marvin.
