Doors Internships: Unlocking Potential

Twenty interns from college campuses across the United States are participating in Leggett & Platt’s Doors Summer Internship Program. Doors is a curated ten-week virtual professional development series that allows students to gain real-life experience in their field of study through immersive leadership workshops while interning either remotely or in person with one of our L&P facilities.

This summer, we have students interning in key departments such as Human Resources, IT, Engineering, Tax, Sustainability, and Finance. In addition to their department tasks, they will be participating in weekly professional development events, which include workshops on time management, goal setting, and effective communication. The students will present a final capstone project, which will help change the landscape of their department.

“The most exciting addition this summer is the implementation of the ‘Executive Speaker Series,’ where our interns will have the unique opportunity to learn from and interact with some of our leaders, such as the CFO and CHRO,” says Wences Ramirez, Campus Recruiter and Ambassador to the Doors Program. “This series will provide valuable insights into their journey, L&P’s culture, and the people that make L&P successful.”
