The Wellness Program includes outreach such as: on-site influenza immunizations and health screenings; smoking cessation assistance; health coaching; on-site wellness coordinators; regular company-wide multi-media communications on a variety of useful topics.

We recognize that to achieve our vision, Seneca must continue its commitment to its loyal employees. Without their dedication and hard work, achievement of our goals would not be possible. It is the combined team effort of every member of our Seneca family that will enable us to be successful in reaching those goals.
Two key programs are Seneca GROWS and Seneca SAVES:
GROWS is a nomination-based development training program designed to expand each participant's knowledge and view of Seneca and foster a culture where employees think openly about problems.
Training includes the application of a methodical process for problem and solution analysis. This program strives to promote a deeper understanding of the value and impact of leadership, teamwork, communication and continuous improvement.
The selected employees are encouraged to embrace life-long learning as a means of overcoming a natural resistance to change and as a gateway to reaching their full potential.
SAVES supports Seneca's "Process Excellence" roadmap by providing an action oriented process improvement plan founded on systematic lean problem solving, disciplined waste elimination, superior cost management and iterative continuous improvements across the organization.
Seneca SAVES is committed to supporting the professional development and personal growth of Seneca's employees by providing education, training and direct coaching on the application of lean tools and methodologies. Seneca SAVES fosters Seneca as a learning organization by promoting reflection, self-assessment and learning from our experiences.
Seneca Foods Corporation offers a competitive and comprehensive array of flexible benefits.
Seneca Foods contributes significantly toward group health and dental and prescription drug coverage for eligible employees. We also offer levels of life, disability, and accidental death & dismemberment insurance from plans flexibly designed to meet individual and family needs.
Seneca Foods offers several resources to help our employees plan for their successful retirement. It is worth noting that Seneca is one of the few remaining companies that offer both a 401(k) savings plan with a discretionary company match, and a defined benefit pension plan.
Seneca foods corporation Employees' Savings Plan—401(k)
A 401(k) plan is a savings plan by which eligible employees can save for their retirement by contributing pretax dollars from their pay directly into their 401(k) plan accounts. Seneca's 401(k) plan also has a discretionary company match, which means that, each year, the company can add to your 401(k) account, based on your own contributions to the plan.
Seneca Employees' Pension Benefit Plan
Seneca also sponsors a defined benefit pension plan for eligible employees. A defined benefit pension plan is a retirement plan that is 100% paid for by the company. Eligibility for and participation in the pension plan are typically based on hours and years of service with the company.
