Mississippi Lime Company Culture: Why It’s So Special. In Our Employees’ Own Words.

February 21, 2020

Company culture is about values and commitments. It’s not just a set of mission and vision statements. It’s not a top-down thing. It’s how these values and commitments are expressed and followed by employees every day that make our company culture special.

We can’t cover all the things that make our culture special in a single blog post, but we can take a look at a few of them in our employees’ own words, focusing on our atmosphere of teamwork and support, and our commitment to integrity.

“I feel the culture is one where everyone really cares about everyone else. We all want to do a good job and make sure the other person’s doing that job as well.” – Nathan Hooper, Operations Team Leader, Peerless Rotary.

“We all get along wonderfully. We have a good time and enjoy what we do, and we get the job done at the end of the day. Everybody goes above and beyond to help the other person.” – Jeff Jackson, Plant Leader, Weirton, West Virginia.

“The best thing about working here is the closeness we have with each other and our ability to work well together as a team.” – Daniel Schaupp, Electrical & Instrumentation Technician, Chester, South Carolina.

“When someone has a problem, most of the time, they help fix the problem. You come together and you work together as a team.” – Vernon Bader, Bulk Bagger, Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

“Everyone I talk to from here to the front office, if there’s something we need or we want to talk about, I haven’t found anyone who won’t do their best to help us.” – Ronnie Paul, Process Technician, Mobile, Alabama.

For all this to work, you need to have trust. To have trust, you need to have integrity. It’s one of our core values and is at the center of what makes our culture at Mississippi Lime what it is.

Perhaps Sales Manager Will O’Neil, Bridgeville, Pennsylvania (Breen) said it best, “If you don’t have integrity, no one will trust you. You will not have a relationship with your customers. You won’t have a relationship with the employees. Everybody I’ve met here at Mississippi Lime is a person of integrity.”

It is this spirit of teamwork and support, supported by a commitment to personal and corporate integrity that is one of the things that makes Mississippi Lime special.
