In recent years, employee engagement has increased awareness of employee recognition programs, knowledge sharing, team building, promoting, and retaining talent.

In FY20, Lancaster Colony invited 3,083 personnel to respond to its annual employee survey, and 81% responded, both increases from FY19.
