No matter what title is carried, Dakkota employees take pride in their work and know their effort makes a real difference not only to the team, but also to the company.
Tuition Assistance: Eligible employees are provided the opportunity to receive upfront financial support to pursue higher education or personal interest courses. The course of study can be aimed at growth in a current position or preparation for a career change at Dakkota, or even elsewhere. We believe the pursuit of knowledge excellence.

Employees may purchase additional coverage for life, dependent life coverage and long-term disability care. We also provide wellness initiatives, challenges and other resources encouraging healthy lifestyles that are fun and rewarding.
Time Away: Time off is an important part of our culture. Renewing spirits through a healthy work/life balance is encouraged through earned time off. Paid time off includes paid vacation and holidays.
Retirement Planning: Dakkota provides a competitive 401(k) program, and eligible employees who participate will receive a 401(k) match based on 100% of the first 3% they contribute, and 50% on the next 3% they contribute.
Growth & Development: At the very core of our culture is the belief that, given the opportunity, motivated people will make the most of their careers and contribute to Dakkota’s success. We support team members in their efforts by offering professional training and development classes and creating a culture where growth and internal promotion are encouraged. As a new employee, you will learn about Dakkota through orientation.
Family & Medical Leave: Dakkota offers a leave of absence program, including Dakkota Medical and Family Leave, for employees who do not yet meet FMLA eligibility.
The Great Ideas program was formed in 2011 as a bonus incentive to employees whose ingenuity results into an annual minimum of $1,000 or more in savings for Dakkota. Team employees submit Great Ideas, which undergo a committee review process. Together, the team ensures the implementation of the “idea” and sees the idea through to completion. 25 percent of the savings created by the team will be matched by the company, and donated to a charity of the team’s choosing.
