Lifetime's 45th Semi-Annual Company Meeting

When coordinating Lifetime's semi-annual company meeting, I can get caught up in the details rather than appreciating the meeting for what it is. This past Saturday, as I peered from behind my laptop into a sea of more than 800 blue “25 Years” Lifetime T-shirts, it hit me.

Our semi-annual meeting is a unique program— one of the few times each year when people from all shifts and departments gather together and hear company updates, see new and upcoming products, and take part in Lifetime’s Profit Sharing program.

But I believe there is more to this meeting than what meets the eye... In the 45 times Lifetime has held this meeting, and the years that I have had the pleasure in taking part, I have come to realize what it means. It’s our commitment to producing high-quality products. It’s our drive to continue to grow profitably— maintaining the stability of a low-debt/no debt structure. It’s the genuine care that Lifetime employees show one another—reflected in the way management handles company growth, providing more benefits and opportunities.

In its essence, this meeting demonstrates people coming together to realize our mission- “Lifetime will produce high quality, innovative products while growing profitably and providing opportunities for our people.” 

During the meeting, we recognized our employees serving in the Military, and welcomed one home from Afghanistan. The photo in this post shows our president Richard Hendrickson announcing the return of this serviceman, and the standing ovation he received from all of us.

To sum up the presentations in this meeting, we learned that the company is doing well—growing at a steady rate that enables us to sustain company growth. Lifetime is expanding operations in Utah, adding new blow-molding machines and capabilities. And we unveiled a healthy lineup of exciting new products! I can’t talk about the new products yet, but we’ll announce them here first, and on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

More exciting products and great company news to come. Stay tuned!

It’s National Play-doh Day!
Bet you didn’t know it’s National Play-doh Day today, did you? Not exactly sure why I know, I guess I just stumbled across it online somehow. I’m also not sure what you’re supposed to do on National Play-doh Day and who even recognizes or sponsors it. But, in honor of National Play-doh Day, I thought it would be appropriate to post of picture of my son playing with…yep, you guessed it…Play-doh!:) Kids love Play-doh. Parents love the idea of fun, quiet, creative play…but, deep down, most of us hate the mess it makes and detest the fact that the stuff dries out after just a few months no matter how tightly you put on the lid! A lot of my friends only let their kids use Play-doh outside so they don’t have to worry about cleaning up those gazallion little rice-sized pieces that get dropped on the floor. I’m not that hard-core, ...
