We support jewelers in everything they do. It's what propels us in everything we do. They're a creative, driven bunch. So are we.
We get to work with a pretty fantastic group of clients and that makes coming into work every day a pleasure. Jewelers are designers and creators. They're mad scientists and savvy businesspeople. They're artisans who craft metal by hand and manufacturers who use 3D printers who bring the stuff of their dreams to life. Above all, they are makers and doers. Take a peek at this video from our award-winning ad campaign. We think you'll see why we're so smitten.
We don't really believe in bosses here at Rio. Our principle-driven flat management structure means you are in charge and accountable to those you work with day in and day out. This kind of thinking gives our associates incredible flexibility to create the work-life balance that works for them and for our growing business.
We expect a lot from our associates, and we empower them to harness their skills and take charge of their careers. Our team-based structure makes it easy to take a good idea and run with it. We expect everyone to contribute to the running of the company, and we're constantly changing and adapting based on the input of every one of our associates.
What fun would work be if we didn't get to play every once in a while? Team potlucks, company-sponsored Wellness events, summer barbecues. Our associates are always finding ways to make coming to work a blast. We've been named one of New Mexico's healthiest employers and one of its best places to work since 2011. The Samaritan Counseling Center presented us with the Rust Award for Excellence in Ethical Business Practices in 2014. And our Wellness Program rewards associates for staying active and eating healthfully. We're committed to the all-around well-being of every member of the Rio family.
We have roots in Albuquerque that date back to 1944, when a jeweler and mentor named Saul Bell founded the business that would become Rio Grande on Route 66. There are reasons we've stayed here more than 70 years. Three-hundred days a year of sunshine (did we mention our facility is entirely solar powered?), mountains at our doorstep, high-desert sunsets, a rich cultural heritage and friendly people are just a few of them. Whether it's hitting the ski slopes and miles of hiking trails or relaxing at some of the best breweries in the country, come discover what you love about Albuquerque.
Everything you need to live your best life.
Our awesome associates take care of that for us.
Find your sweet spot.
We started out as a one-man shop and are now owned by Berkshire-Hathaway, one of the best-known businesses in the country. Come grow with us!
