Skills, Training and Employment Program (STEP) — A program that introduces candidates with transferable skills from related industries (real estate, appraisal, legal, clerical, construction, engineering, etc.) and matches them with clients willing to provide on-the-job training for opportunities in land and right-of-way.

Health, Safety and Environment — Salem Land is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for our employees through best-in-class education and training programs. Salem Land’s safety programs have been audited and they maintain the highest ratings by both ISNetworld and PEC Premier. Salem Land consistently maintains an “A” rating for all client-specific requirements. Salem Land is fully compliant with our clients’ NCMS drug and alcohol requirements.

Transparency – Accountability – Sustainability – Knowledge (TASK) — Through our T.A.S.K. quality program, we consistently monitor the success of every assigned agent, which has resulted in the industry’s highest levels of quality and the lowest turnover rates. Furthermore, our culture of continuous improvement and best-practices operating procedures helps ensure that TQM objectives are met. At Salem Land, we don’t just claim we provide quality services – we prove it.

Independent Contractors Compliance — Salem Land has established an independent contractor compliance program to assist companies in mitigating the risk of misclassification of workers through pre-evaluating the individual’s status and the working relationship based on IRS criteria. This is the safest strategy to protect the assets of corporations against crippling penalties. Risks include the potential of multi-million dollar assessments imposed by the IRS, lawsuits resulting from workers claiming retroactive benefit payments, unemployment, or even workers’ compensation.
