Driver Willie Gentry has finally found his replacement! Sierra Staten, hired in June, rode along with Willie during her Lykins Onboarding. She is a University of Cincinnati Industrial Organizational Psychology graduate student who has taken on the daunting task of creating job descriptions for everyone in the company! Sierra's dedication has gotten her a great start on her project, but she says her favorite parts are getting to know all the different micro-cultures each of our locations have: the jobs, the people, the scenery and even the accents she's discovered give her a unique view of our company. Thanks for the work on this project, Sierra!
Some advice from one of our hardworking bobtail drivers, Mr. Todd Hardy.

BIG NEWS for Lykins employees! Friday, our fearless leader Jeff announced that we will now have a "Dress for Your Day" policy that includes the big one - jeans in the office! We know there are some days we'll meet customers and partners for work, and we'll still dress in business casual for them. Also, we've revised the time off policy - instead of sick and vacation time, employees can enjoy a PTO policy with expanded times for all levels of tenure!
These changes are coming about as part of our Employee Experience revolution. It goes hand in hand with the exploration of our employees' values to create Lykins' own core values and improving our managers with a new Leadership Development movement. It's an awesome time to work at Lykins Energy Solutions!
We've started our Values Workshops! We'll have ten workshops where our employees - everyone from drivers to office workers to management and the owners - will get to help decide what Lykins company values will be. These values will help us train our management and leaders to be the best they can be and will shape our performance reviews! We're really excited about seeing this effort come to fruition in 2018.
