Stevens Point, Wis. – Worzalla, an employee-owned company specializing in printing high-quality children’s books, movie tie-in books and cookbooks, announced it is hiring for 35 open positions at its facility in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Worzalla cites an increased demand for books during the coronavirus pandemic for the need to hire additional associates.

“Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen an increase in demand for books of all categories, especially in the children’s books category for both education and entertainment,” said Richard Letchinger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Worzalla. “Our customers across the country have been reaching out to us to print a variety of projects, both classics and new titles, to help educate and entertain kids at home.”

Letchinger says that Worzalla has worked on some popular titles over the last few months, including classics from the Dr. Seuss library of books, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, as well as the Who Was…? biographical series from Penguin Random House.

Worzalla offers on-the-job training for new associates and in-house training for those who want to improve their skills and advance their careers.

“What’s special about Worzalla is that we aren’t just making a product to ship to a customer,” said Brianne Petruzalek, Vice President of Human Resources at Worzalla. “With each book crafted, our associates are creating opportunities for readers to learn, imagine, and dream. They are making special memories by producing unforgettable and classic children’s books that will be read time and time again. We really are creating something that is so much more than a book.”
