BREAKFAST WITH THE PRESIDENT” ANOTHER BUILDING BLOCK IN DAL-TILE’S UNIQUE CORPORATE CULTURE
Everything Dal-Tile does to create its unique corporate culture reflects back out toward customers in the form of exceptional products, a higher level of performance, and outstanding customer service.
“Breakfast with the President” is a recurring event where Dal-Tile’s president invites new team members to join him for breakfast in an intimate, small group gathering at the company’s Dallas headquarters. The event is just one more example of the unique, close-knit fabric of this industry giant.
‘Breakfast with the President’ is an important part of our corporate culture here at the Dal-Tile division of Mohawk Industries,” said John (J.T.) Turner, Jr., president of Dal-Tile Corporation. “This regular gathering allows me direct interaction with our new team members, giving me the opportunity to reach out, get to know them personally, and begin sharing the excitement inherent in being part of our Dal-Tile team.”
“At this event, I impart our organization’s legacy, ensure new employees are aligned with our company vision, and, most importantly, welcome them into our community,” said Turner. “I always stress to our new hires that they are now part of a true community — and the Dal-Tile community is an open, welcoming, and diverse community.”
“I tell them that they will gain so much as part of our close-knit and successful community, but I also set the expectation that they should give back to the community,” said Turner. “When I say ‘give back’, I mean more than just working hard. Hard work is a given. What I am talking about is giving more of themselves, going that extra mile, jumping in and enthusiastically contributing more than the average person does. Those are the kinds of people that currently make up our Dal-Tile team and those are the kinds of people we want to continue adding to our organization, because people like that will ultimately end up giving the most to our customers.”
