Pella Recognized as 2024 Campus Forward Award Winner by RippleMatch

RippleMatch Campus Forward Award

Pella Corporation was selected as a 2024 Campus Forward Award Winner by RippleMatch. This accolade celebrates the teams that embrace innovative recruiting strategies, care deeply about the candidate experience, are making significant investments in Diversity & Inclusion (D&I), and are supporting the next generation of talent through impactful internships and entry-level programs.

At the core of Pella's recognition is their innovative approach to university recruitment. The Campus Recruiting team at Pella combines in-person and virtual events with technology to enhance candidate engagement and accessibility. This includes using social media for day-in-the-life videos, upgrading backend technology for a seamless application process, and hosting virtual meetings at schools the team isn’t able to visit. This comprehensive approach, coupled with the commitment to providing exceptional onsite candidate experiences and on-campus interviews, exemplifies Pella's dedication to making recruitment both accessible and engaging for candidates nationwide.

“I am proud to work alongside a team that puts so much effort into supporting and uplifting students as they begin their careers. This is such an important area of focus because your first career choice out of college is such a huge life decision. Hearing from candidates that the team at Pella truly took the time to listen to what the student was looking for in their first career out of college meant a lot to them," said Louie Currier, Campus Talent Acquisition Specialist.

Along with innovative recruiting strategies, Pella also offers an internship program designed to be truly impactful. Interns have the opportunity to attend Executive Roundtables and social events, compete in a case competition, and create hands-on projects no matter what area of the company they are working in. Pella believes that by allowing interns to gain real world experience, they are empowered to excel in the classroom and in future opportunities. 

“At Pella Corporation, we have a strong internship history with success stories throughout the organization, including current executives who started as interns at the company. We truly view our campus partnerships and recruiting efforts as a critical piece of our early career strategy – and an investment in our company’s future as we work to build a talent advantage. We’re delighted to receive this recognition,” said Kristin Tague, Director of Talent & Leadership Development 

RippleMatch, known for revolutionizing recruitment automation and assisting Gen Z job seekers in starting their careers, awards the Campus Forward recognition to companies that excel in connecting with and nurturing early career talent.  This award not only highlights Pella's commitment to innovative recruitment but also aligns with their long-standing history of investing in talent.
