Focus on Safety
Maintaining a safe working environment is everything at Leigh Fibers. We have the finest, most experienced and driven workforce in the industry. Our success depends on their health and well-being. As a company, Leigh Fibers goes to tremendous lengths to protect both.
Each day begins with a facility-wide meeting which is devoted, in part, to discussing, measuring and brainstorming ways for improving safety. As a result, we are able to increase our hours between safety incidents.
At the same time, Leigh Fibers is concerned with and involved in our associates’ well-being. We regularly develop and support company-wide health initiatives to help associates maintain a healthy weight, exercise and take advantage of wellness benefits available through our benefits plan.
Empowered and Engaged
Leigh Fibers is committed to engaging every associate as a partner. This involves both a top-down and bottom-up approach.
We firmly believe that our success—and that of our customers—lies in giving those who know the processes and problems the best the freedom, tools and responsibility to continually improve. So we provide associates the training, cross-training and process improvement tools to better understand and improve their areas of expertise.
More importantly, we encourage and empower every employee to be an agent for positive change. Every change for the better, no matter how minor, provides the incentive to look for further improvements. By openly recognizing and rewarding these efforts, the entire company reinforces the value of each and every employee, every day.
