Caring Team   
March 14, 2017 
Polydeck Screen Corporation, headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina, has an interesting, actually astounding, perspective about caring for employees. They start with a lofty set of core values:
We are a company grounded in the Christian values of humility, honesty, integrity, respect, kindness and a sense of social responsibility. Our goal is to create eternal value by striving to honor God in all we do. This is reflected in how we conduct our business and how we care for our employees - our greatest asset.
As a result of their values a Caring Team was created that oversees all kinds of services to employees ... even home and car repairs! We were fortunate to have the CEO, Peter Freissle, speak at a luncheon in 2016 and were quite inspired. If you watch this 8-minute video you might wonder, "how, in the world, can a company operate like this?"

At the heart of any good business is a chief executive officer with one.
