Mining for Gold

We want your solid gold ideas...AND WE’LL PAY FOR THEM!

We want to encourage McCarthy-Bush Corporation employees to speak up and be heard in the workplace. The Mining for Gold program is your opportunity to help solve a problem, produce higher quality products/services, provide cost or time savings – and GET REWARDED FOR IT!

How the Program Works

Mining for Gold improvement ideas can be submitted by eligible employees throughout the year using this online form or by submitting a paper form – available for download here or at your company’s main office. An evaluation committee made up of representatives from each company will review submitted ideas and select a $500 CASH PRIZE winner each quarter. Once a year, one Mother Lode winner will be selected to win an expense paid vacation to a destination of their choice (up to $6,000 or cash payout equivalent)!
