National Hispanic Heritage Month

Today concludes National Hispanic Heritage Month. It’s been an honor to share the stories of several of our Latinx employees over the past few weeks.
Many have worked alongside us for decades. We can’t thank you enough for your dedication and contributions to L&P.

World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day. Did you know that more than 1 in 10 people live with a mental health condition? And likely fewer than half will seek out help or support. As we observe World Mental Health Day, we want to fight against the stigma often associated with mental health. If you’re struggling, we urge you to speak to your doctor to help you find a healthy treatment plan. You’re not alone.

Some additional ways you can care for your mental health are to talk about your feelings with a trusted individual, stay active, eat well, and do something you’re good at or enjoy.

National Hispanic Heritage Month: Gerardo Lopez

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re sharing the stories of several Latinx employees within our U.S. facilities.

“We educate operators to produce quality products that help our customers sleep better. I’m proud of the diverse skill set every individual on our team presents. We all feel a sense of accomplishment when we fix a machine and get it running. Being able to pass my expertise on to both our English and Spanish speaking operators allows me to help them grow their careers, too.”

National Hispanic Heritage Month: Juan Garcia

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re sharing the stories of several Latinx employees within our U.S. facilities.

“I’ve worked for L&P for 46 years and it’s the only company I’ve worked for since moving to the U.S. As a forklift driver, it’s my responsibility to ensure that everyone on my team has the materials they need during our shift. They depend on me and this job allows me to support them — as well as my family.”

National Hispanic Heritage Month: Matthew Lopez

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re sharing the stories of several Latinx employees within our U.S. facilities.

“I think my job at L&P is important because I’m able to help and connect with different employees every day. I’m able to use my Spanish speaking skills to translate different documents and help employees who struggle with English.

There are many aspects of my culture that make me proud to be Hispanic. I appreciate how close-knit and encouraging Latinos are as a society. We are known for helping one another and contributing to the greater good. I also really enjoy the different foods we are known for including tamales, garnachas, empanadas, and arroz con leche.

I keep close contact with my family around the U.S. and Guatemala. Anytime I see or talk to my family they are very warm and welcoming and make me feel as if we see each other every single day.”
