In 2003, Hardy Diagnostics became an Open Book Management company, which encourages all employees to become involved in the financial management of the company's operations. The generous benefit package includes a company matched 510k program and a quarterly Profit Sharing program, which creates business partners of all employees. In addition, the company became employee owned in 2013 as an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). The result is a workforce highly motivated to satisfy their customers which in turn helps ensure the long-term success of the company.

Hardy Diagnostics believes in giving back to the community and is actively involved in promoting and supporting a variety of local community based charities and non-profit organizations by giving 1% of its earnings annually.

The company was honored to be a member of the INC 5,000 fastest growing companies in America in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Consistent growth is evidenced by the fact that the company has never had a year of declining sales in its 35 year history. It has also never had an unprofitable year.
