ILS corporate culture is focused on helping employees maintain a work/life balance, by providing paid time off, flexible scheduling, and an employee assistance program. Our employees have helped us to be recognized in the Carolina Parent’s 50 Family-Friendly Companies list for ten different years. ILS’ performance award program celebrates employee successes and commitment to achieve. ILS values the importance of community and provides opportunities to give back through an Adopt-a-Highway Committee, a Community Relations Committee and an Employee Relations Committee. ILS was awarded Green Plus Certification by the Institute for Sustainable Development.
We asked employees what they like about ILS and below are some comments.
“I love working at ILS because I appreciate the T.H.E. Scholarship that is offered for dependents of ILS. My daughter Jessica was in need of some money to complete her college education and thanks to the scholarship she was able to graduate.” - Judy Maddox (ESAT - Athens, GA)
“ILS has given me an opportunity to develop new skills working on challenging projects that have the potential to improve human health. I particularly enjoy working with the talented and dedicated ILS staff on my team.” - Cathy Sprankle (NICEATM - Research Triangle Park, NC)
“I have always felt like I was working with ILS management and not for ILS management. The sense of being part of a team rather than just working for a company encourages creativity, longevity, and career satisfaction.” - Sandy Smith (Contracts - Research Triangle Park, NC)
“ILS is the place that I would like to give thanks. The benefits package I like to praise, We start with 10 Federal paid holidays. In this age it is really rare but they offer us free health care! Matching 401ks and offering 529s, Ensure us that as Seniors, we will be just fine. Chairman T.K. we know is very caring, with scholarships, ESOP, and profit sharing. If you are a chemist, or bioengineer, ILS is a great place to start your career!” -Yvette Lane-Walcott (ESAT - Athens, GA)
