Good conversation–there’s nothing better. I’ve always been a fan of people and the stories they tell. I started my career as a Talent Advisor for Leggett & Platt and got to hear good stories every day throughout the hiring process. Now I'm a Communications Specialist and find myself telling good stories through writing. When I’m not at work, I enjoy photography–telling my own story from behind a camera lens. I’ve also been known to write a poem or two, which stems from a long-held interest in creative writing. After dreaming up wild characters and fantastical plots as a kid, I guess I just couldn’t keep my ideas in my head any longer. Someday you should ask me about Chester the Mini Dragon.

Photo Gallery: Leggett Learn-A-Rama

Last Friday, our Corporate Office got groovy. The 1970s-themed Learn-A-Rama showcased various departments, the faces behind the scenes, and what exactly they do every day. Our employees strolled through the booths and received helpful info on what goes on outside of their own departments. We played games, snacked, solved puzzles… even danced to the Y.M.C.A.! It was a wild success! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day.

New Series: Everyday Leggett Life

We’ve said it before, but we have the most incredible employees at Leggett & Platt. Our people live and work all around the world, bringing unique backgrounds and expertise to their roles. Though we all work for the same company, what we see and do every day is exceptionally diverse.

This series will celebrate that diversity. We’ll feature photos taken by our very own employees—from China to Mexico and everywhere in between—showcasing snapshots from their day-to-day work lives. From the top of a neatly (or not-so) organized desk to a sunny view out an office window, or from folks working together on a production floor to relaxing on a lunch break – this is #EverydayLeggettLife!

“I drove to work in rush hour traffic every day for years. Now on my way to Leggett, I drive backroads with scenery like this!” Ken Southwick, Senior Designer at Creative Services. [Carthage, Missouri, USA]
