With a new year comes new possibilities, growth, obstacles, and paths to venture down. We do our best to navigate these waters with the experience of the past as a north star to guide us, and a yearning curiosity to find something new and uncharted. For our Lee Company team members, we consider ourselves as part of a family. That means we have opportunities to trust and love one another, all while striving to become better people each and every day.
It has been said, “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” At Lee Company we give back by volunteering, donating, and serving our communities with our trades and talents. But something that’s most important to us is we provide opportunities for our employees to thrive and support their families through their work.
The fact of the matter is, we need the trades. We all want our home to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer – likewise, we want our toilets to flush and the lights to come on. At Lee Company, we walk hand-in-hand with our community partnerships to help bring young men and women into the workforce with purpose. Career paths are the rule at Lee Company, not the exception – and we’re passionate about helping people navigate their journey. We eagerly teach individuals the concepts of the trades, and aid in their development of skills they’ll need such as perseverance, patience, and how to overcome challenges. You don’t just work with your hands at Lee Company – you work with your heart.
We are blessed to have our talented and growing workforce, made up of 1,700+ men and women, dedicated to our primary mission to honor God by serving people with respect, integrity, and compassion. The growth we have experienced in the last year in our Murfreesboro office alone has been tremendous. In fact, our Facility Services team doubled in size in that short time. Having witnessed this growth firsthand, I can truly say, “It takes a village.” With incredible support from our local community, our Rutherford Chamber of Commerce, the Murfreesboro TCAT College, and so many local businesses and customers, we are truly honored to represent our community and the state of Tennessee in the highest of regards.
If you’ve known Lee Company for any amount of time, you know we’re about taking care of our communities and providing world-class customer service. Giving back is not merely about the money we donate to charitable organizations, food drives, or volunteering at events. It’s in every action our team members display daily. Whether we come to your home or business, your store to purchase goods, your family member’s residence, or maybe we pass in traffic … we hope it’s our culture of integrity that we are known for. We will continue to teach the trades for as long as we can, and now more than ever, we’re grateful to serve you, our customer.
