New Year, New Perspectives – Stephanie Stidham

It’s a new year, folks, and we’ve got some new faces at L&P! During the past few weeks, we’ve been introducing you to several of our most recent hires and their thoughts on the year ahead.

Meet Stephanie Stidham. She’s a Staff Tax Accountant, and she started her role at L&P in September.


What brought you to Leggett?
Leggett & Platt has a very good reputation as a place you can land long-term. I have a couple of friends who work at L&P, and they raved about the friendly atmosphere. I had been in Fort Bragg, North Carolina with my husband for 3 years, and when we decided to move back to this area, I applied at Leggett. Everyone is very down-to-earth and makes me feel welcome.

What’s something surprising about you?
As a mother of two, I care about products that are safe and inexpensive. So, I sell a line of natural cleaning products designed to be toxin-free and affordable. My staple is a microfiber cloth that helps with cleaning – I only use water with it and don’t need to have a lot of chemicals in my house!

What’s your biggest goal for 2017?
In the Tax Department, everyone keeps telling me it’ll take about a year to get the hang of things. So, I want to keep working to understand my role and how it changes through an entire tax and accounting cycle.
