At Lehman-Roberts Co. and Memphis Stone & Gravel Co., our greatest asset is our people. Since 1939, it has been our goal to be the best asphalt producer and contractor in the Mid-South, and that would not be possible without great employees. We believe that the path to true success begins with hiring qualified people who will thrive in our culture. We have cultivated an environment which has allowed us to acquire and maintain loyal employees, some who have been a part the company for 30 years or more. In our 3-for-30 series, we will take closer look at those employees who have successfully contributed to our mutual success.
1. Why do you enjoy working here? How do the company’s core values impact your day-to-day responsibilities?
Management treats all employees with respect and gratitude and that sets the standard for how I treat the employees and customers of Plant 5. We have a great team, we work hard, and I enjoy working with each and every one of them.
2. How have you seen the company change for the better during your tenure? List specific changes in operations, projects, growth, etc.
Safety has become top priority for the company, which includes both training and incentives. Also, the company has added holiday pay, vacation pay, 401k and more training opportunities for all employees since I began working here. All of these things have helped me to do my job more effectively.
3. You’ve been with the company for a long time…what about the company culture made it the right fit for you?
I know if I have a problem, I will get the support I need to resolve it. Hard work is recognized and rewarded. The overall Lehman-Roberts Co. culture creates a good atmosphere and cultivates good people. I enjoy the people I work with and that’s more important than a title or paycheck.
