Lifetime Products Profit Sharing

On Feb 6, 2010 Lifetime Products held its 42nd bi-annual Profit Sharing Meeting. If you’re like me, and don’t know what profit sharing is when you first hear of it, let me explain. Profit Sharing is a program where a company shares a portion of the year’s profit with its employees. At Lifetime, everyone is involved with Profit Sharing and we all get the exact same amount (with the exception of people that have been with the company for less than a year or have not met performance requirements).

Lifetime's Profit Sharing meeting is also a report on the company. Both the Lifetime Products President Richard Hendrickson and Owner/CEO take the opportunity to update us on company initiatives, company goals and values, and new products. In this meeting we learned that Lifetime is still completely debt-free, and doing great after recent hard economic times. We also have a LOT of exciting new products to look forward to! Check our blog for the release of these new products.

Every other Profit Sharing meeting, it’s tradition to award our annual “Humanitarian Of the Year” award. This year’s award went to a very deserving group rather than an individual. Jared, Mike, Ken, Mary, Cliff, Adam, Ron, Sandy, Jayson, Jeremy, Tim, Kevin, John, and Wes all chose to use their budget for a manager’s team-building activity to coordinate a local service project. In the summer of 2009, they coordinated a large-scale overhaul of a Christmas Box House location. In response to the service, Lisa McDonald, a representative from the Christmas Box House said:

“Because of the generosity of community supporters like the wonderful individuals at Lifetime Products, The Christmas Box Houses are able to provide a variety of resources to children who have been abused and/or neglected. It means a lot to the kids to know that people care about them. They love the new playground equipment.”

The entire project took months to coordinate, about a week of dedicated labor, and a variety of product donations, including:

• Cleaning, mowing and weeding a backyard play area
• Painting a key on a basketball court
• Painting a 4-square game on the sidewalk
• Installing a sandbox
• Installing playground equipment made by Lifetime Products, including a basketball system, Geodome, Shed, Helicopters, Deck Box, and Kids’ Picnic Tables.
• Moving an old shed and replacing it with a Lifetime shed, where they organized the charity’s bikes, helmets, skates and scooters. 

Congrats to the winners of this prestigious award! And thanks to all those who came to Lifetime’s Profit Sharing!

Table Clips for Lifetime Tables - Two Packs for the Price of One!
Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks. It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them! Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy. Good thing I'm not superstitious. :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting. Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?! And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder to find clips that fit properly. But...
2 More People On Your Christmas List Who Need a Lifetime Table
1. The KidsSure, kids love to get new toys for their Christmas. But more than that, most toddlers like things that are just like Mom and Dads! Give them a Lifetime Childrens Picnic Table so they can sit and eat at a table just their size and theyll soon be begging for dinnertime! And, just like the adult version, the plastic top and metal frame fold flat to hang on the wall for easy storage during the winter months. Oh, did we mention its stain resistant? Even permanent marker, spaghetti sauce, or grape juice wont stain this table! 2. The TeacherLooking for a unique gift for your childs teacher that she can use both in her classroom and at home? Give her a Lifetime Personal Table. Its inexpensive and with the three adjustable heights it can be used for an extra desk, as a podium, to hold graded papers, or to hold the class...
Raising Hoops (and Funds) for Kids
Here it is - my official blogging debut. As the newest member of the Lifetime365 blog team, I'm looking forward to sharing some of my personal experiences and basketball product expertise with you. 'Tis the Giving Season! And, if you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know that giving back is one of the things that is extremely important to Lifetime. So, needless to say, I was excited to recently have the opportunity to participate in giving back on behalf of Lifetime at the South Jeffco Sports Association (SJSA) Holiday Tournament in Lakewood, Colorado. SJSA is a nonprofit youth sports organization offering playing opportunities in various sports to kids age 4-17. The Holiday Tournament event was held at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewood. The three-day tournament included boys and girls in grades 3-8. It wa...
