Employees enjoy seminars packed with prizes and fun

Ranger employees rally together at benefits seminars with food and fun to learn about the value of Ranger’s comprehensive benefits package.

Karla Gutierrez understands the benefit in connecting with people in the field. That’s why she and other Ranger employees worked together to hold benefits seminars for Ranger employees and their families in April.

“The goal of the seminars was to showcase our benefits and really emphasize on their value, cost, and what that means to employees and their families,” said Gutierrez, who serves as Ranger’s HR Business Partner for South Rigs.

We presented information regarding the benefits plans that Ranger offers including medical, dental, vision, 401k, in vitro fertilization, short-term and long-term disability coverage, basic life insurance and much more,” she said.

To date, two seminars have been held with more than 600 Ranger employees and their families attending the seminars held in Floresville, Texas and Wharton, Texas.

Along with a benefits presentation, the seminars included a cookout, raffles, and giveaways.

Mikey Hopkins, Vice President of the Well Services’ South Business Unit, said the concept for the seminars came up during steering teams’ meetings and discussions with employees.

“We came to the conclusion that employees did not know or fully understand our benefits,” Hopkins said. “We brainstormed and decided that the best way to get this information out was to get their spouses and families in the room and break down our offerings.”

Hopkins said it was important for employees to fully understand Ranger’s benefits to realize their long-term value.

“We wanted to ensure our employees had a full understanding of our overall benefits program in an effort to maximize their potential earnings and reduce costs relating to their insurance coverage,” he said. “Additionally, it’s important that our employees understand everything that Ranger has to offer in an effort to reduce turnover.”

“I enjoyed seeing and meeting all the employees, their spouses and kids,” Gutierrez said of the seminars.

Kevin Gibson, the Eagleford Division Manager for Ranger’s Pleasanton Yard, helped with the preparation of the Floresville seminar, cooking food and sharing his own personal experience with Ranger’s benefits.

Gibson said he and his family have found so much value in the benefits package since he joined Ranger in 2014.

Ranger employees who attended the seminars were able to participate in raffles with prizes including pit smokers, ear pods, JBL Speakers, Yeti backpack coolers, ice chests, Bubba Blades, customized Ranger cutting boards, TVs, a PS5, Nintendo’s, fishing poles, rocking chairs, various gift cards, and Pit Viper sunglasses.

Harold White, a Rig Supervisor for Ranger’s Wharton Yard won the Grand Prize Pit Boss Smoker at the Wharton Benefits Seminar held in May. Coincidentally, it was also Harold’s birthday the day of the seminar.
