Paychecks for Patriots

September 29, 2015

American veterans keep America strong. At Lee Company, we’re proud to support our vets – and to hire them! We have many veterans on staff, and have found that their discipline, dedication and determination are a perfect fit with the Lee Company culture. We share the same values, with a rock-solid commitment to excellence, integrity, ethics and compassion.

The connection is clear from day one. At Lee Company, veterans have the opportunity to build a satisfying professional career while continuing to serve their community. For example, one Lee Company team could be changing the Nashville skyline with buildings and structures that define the future. On the other side of town, another Lee Company team might be helping a family turn a house in need of repair into a welcoming home.

Either way – in facilities or homes – the work we do helps shape the world around us.

Opportunities abound

For veterans interested in translating their military experience into administrative excellence, Lee Company offers additional opportunities. For example, our senior vice president of operations, Stuart Price, applies the lessons he learned at the U.S. Naval Academy and the leadership experience he gained as a Navy officer to help Lee Company customers every day.

Veterans like Stuart are accustomed to being part of a greater good, to contributing their talents to strengthen and protect our country. Lee Company is honored to give vets an opportunity to continue serving and helping while, at the same time, building a career that brings joy and rewards to them and their families.

Join us this Thursday

To demonstrate our commitment, Lee Company is sponsoring and participating in Paychecks for Patriots, a hiring event for veterans and their families. If you – or anyone you know! – might be interested, please join us at:

Sharing lessons learned: Bill Lee to speak at Belmont University

September 17, 2015

 

As a family-oriented business, our corporate culture and community commitment are built on a strong ethical foundation, set in place more than 70 years ago. Lee Company is a place where employees thrive, customers are well-served and helping the community is a regular, hands-on practice.

Bill Lee, Lee Company CEONow, the lessons we’ve learned over the years – lessons that have helped us gain recognition as one of Tennessee’s “Best Companies to Work For” – will help other organizations and the next generation of business leaders.

CEO Bill Lee will be at Belmont University Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015, for two special presentations. In a convocation to students and an address to academic, business and community leaders, Bill will highlight the value of creating an ethical organizational culture and the role executive leadership play in nurturing effective cultural change.

The ethical advantage

Ethics matter – no matter what industry you’re in. Lee Company customers trust us to handle maintenance and repair work in their homes and facilities. Education matters too. In keeping with our corporate culture, Lee Company provides ongoing educational opportunities to employees. This outreach at Belmont University is a wonderful way for us to extend that philosophy and share our approach.

Our thanks to Avenue Bank, the Edward C. Kennedy Center for Business Ethics at Belmont University and Rogers Group for sponsoring Bill Lee’s presentation.

Leading the industry with wearable technology

September 11, 2015

 

It’s one thing to talk about wearable technology changing the way we do business. It’s something else to show people exactly what that means.

At the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit this October, Lee Company Richard Perko from Lee Company, explains how wearable tech is changing the home services and facility management industry.President Richard Perko will be one of the industry leaders showing attendees the amazing benefits wearable technology creates. Richard will present a case study on how Lee Company uses wearable technology to help experienced workforce train and develop junior technicians.

“One of the advantages of working with Lee Company is that our professional technicians stay here for years, so our customers benefit from their knowledge,” says Richard. However, our industry has a deficit of these Senior Techs and it’s only getting worse. As an industry, we are retiring technicians faster than we can replace them and we are missing the very means in which we originally developed these Senior Technicians…on the job training. Not only do we not have enough Senior Techs to accomplish the task of training Junior Techs (on the job), but our customers won’t pay for it. They expect us to find the solution to our workforce development problem without charging them for two technicians. And then there are the physical limitations that our Senior Techs begin to have later in their careers. At the very point in their career that our industry needs them most, our most experienced technicians are forced to retire because they can no longer meet the physical requirements of the job. We risk losing an entire generation of expertise too early if we cannot connect the expertise of this experienced generation to the next one…on the job.

That’s where wearable technology can play an incredible role. To be sure, the solution to our workforce development problem is not wearable technology, it’s On The Job Training, but it’s wearable technology that presents the invaluable opportunity for us to once again train our technicians on the job and preserve our technical brain-trust for years to come.”

The Lee Company approach delivers long-term advantages. Customers benefit from access to our complete team, while the next generation of Lee Company technicians gains invaluable mentoring from our experienced pros.

Richard C. Perko, P.E., President

Many of our neighbors are hungry. Let’s help them.

Join Lee Company in the fight against hunger

No one should have to choose between food and medical care. No one should have to choose between buying groceries and paying the mortgage. But every day – in communities around the country and in homes around the block – our neighbors are doing just that. They’re deciding whether to buy milk or medicine. They’re watering down food and drinks. They’re wondering what to feed the kids.

We can help put nutritious food on the table

Lee Company, a longtime supporter of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, is honored to be a sponsor of Hunger Action Month throughout September. And, we’re not stopping at the end of the month! Lee Company is also running its Vans4Cans campaign, to support Second Harvest and the Food Bank of North Alabama.

Please join us! 

It’s easy to give. From now through late November, please give a food donation to your Lee Company technician during your next service call. We’ll collect canned goods and other non-perishable food items and deliver all your generous contributions to the food banks the week before Thanksgiving.

Help fight hunger in Middle Tennessee with Lee Company.

We’ve done this before, and we know what a difference Vans4Cans makes in the communities we serve. We also know we can count on you to help us in this fight against hunger. Your support and contributions fill our vans and our hearts. With your generosity and goodness, we can all be a blessing.

Thank you, and remember: Your home is where our heart is.
