This year, an AVL business is celebrating something special: MB HAYNES has officially joined the centenarian club. (Read: they’re officially 100 years old.) The company first opened its doors for electrical services in 1921, aka the year F. Scott Fitzgerald published his first novel. 🤯
Since then, MB HAYNES expanded its services to include plumbing, HVAC + more. And along the way, they’ve picked up some pretty quality tips about how to build workplace culture, scale business, and recruit great people.
Here are 3 things they’ve learned after a century in business:
- Invest in your employees. In 2019, MB HAYNES created an Employee Stock Program and now the company is 100% employee-owned.
- Prioritize continuing education. Did you know they run an award-winning apprenticeship program?
- Stay flexible + open-minded. According to VP Tamera Edwards, adapting to new technologies and practices goes a long way toward keeping the lights on. 💡
So, what’s next for MB HAYNES? Continuing to do what they do best: building relationships and providing top-notch services to WNC bizzes + residents. Ⓟ
