Jane Saale, President of Cope Plastics, honored last year by St. Louis Small Business Monthly as one of St. Louis' Top Women Business Owners, was quoted in their March 2007 "Women Business Owners" edition:
"One of the many significant achievements we accomplished in 2006 was the implementation of a company-wide gain-sharing program and its payout in the first year of existence. The company grew profits in excess of 20% from 2005 to 2006 and every employee received a gain-sharing portion of the growth. Thanks to the collaborative effort of each and every team member at Cope, we exceeded our goal. Value your employees, your strategic suppliers and your customers. Have a clear and well-communicated company philosophy, keep up on current trends and make sure to surround yourself with good people."
