SRS Crisafulli's Laura Fleming asks "Are We Engaged?"
By Laura M. Fleming, SRS Crisafulli CFO and President
An afternoon sitting at the Dulles International Airport, after a 6:00 am Delta flight out of Billings, MT allowed me to indulge in one of my favorite things. I purchased four books.
And then, two days later, as part of a Saturday afternoon excursion with my 23 year old daughter, we stopped at Barnes & Noble in Danbury, CT and I purchased six more books.
Yes, we are engaged.
Of my new stack of ten books, the one that floated to the top is Jim Clifton’s September, 2011, The Coming Jobs War.
Jim, Chairman and CEO of Gallup, writes about engagement of employees and of customers in this clear call to action.
On Thursday last week, Jan Falstad, Business Editor/Reporter from the Billings Gazette, and her photographer/ cinematographer Casey Paige visited our facility.
SRS Crisafulli’s hometown, Glendive, MT, is a burgeoning news zone.
I heard from Jan Falstad this morning, that it will be a few weeks before our story runs in their paper. SRS Crisafulli is a simple “good news story” – of steady growth and job creation. That gives us time to blog about a great writer at the Billings Gazette, and the great questions she asked.
SRS Crisafulli is a story about exporting American-made product. As Jan, Casey and I walked around the manufacturing facility and offices, we spoke to Engineer Charles Nichols – leaving for Chile to do a dredge installation; Engineer Isaiah Helm scheduled to go to Israel for a dredge installation; Salesperson Tristan Hoff and Chief Draftsman Chad Schipman scheduled to go to Sonora, Mexico for a dredge installation, all within the next 60 days. SRS Crisafulli employees are engaged to SRS Crisafulli customers.
