I have always felt welcomed and respected throughout my 15+ years with the Lyles Companies. There is a strong sense of comradery and care for one’s well-being both personally and professionally, which makes it a great environment to work in.
I initially started working for W. M. Lyles Co. with the intention to only stay a year or two. The company’s investment in its employees, high ethical standards, great working environment and emphasis on quality won me over. More than 10 years have gone by now and I still look forward to coming to work and making a difference each day.
I have recently joined the New Business Development team, and from the start have been impressed with the vision our leaders have, the right mix of expertise we’re comprised of, and the great plan for accomplishing the work. W. M. Lyles Co. is a company that operates with a positive attitude and has its priorities right. They care about their clients and employees, working considerately and competently with both to enable them to succeed. They use insightful planning for growth, employ the best resources for each challenge, and continually look ahead to upcoming needs. And they maintain a corporate culture that demonstrates high ethics and values as well as makes the employees feel appreciated, supported, and proud of their work. We really are a family here at Lyles.
Integrity is something that’s not always shown in the construction industry. When I was hired at W. M. Lyles Co. this was one of the first things I noticed about them, they show integrity in each and every situation that is presented. They’ve never asked me to put my integrity aside to do something that I wasn’t comfortable with.
One of my favorite things about working at W. M. Lyles Co. is the mutual trust and friendship felt by each team member. There are really some great people that work here. It is a diverse group of personalities, coming together to successfully deliver our projects to our clients.
I have worked side by side with the Owners and it doesn’t matter if it’s getting down in a trench, or if it’s pouring concrete, they will be on the ground and in the trenches alongside you. They treat you as if you’re one of them.
Being at W. M. Lyles Co. feels like it’s a family, because the way that they treat you. It’s not just the fact of being a company and you’re just an employee. They really do care about their employees and treat them like family.
