Owens Corning Coaches Its Employees Toward Success
Owens Corning is a global Fortune 500 company that has been developing residential and commercial insulation, roofing and asphalt, and composite safety-first solutions for over 75 years. The organization was ranked 25th on the 2014 Aon Hewitt’s “Top Companies for Leaders North America” list. With more than 15,000 employees, Owens Corning’s attractive, durable, and sustainable state-of-the-art products save energy, improve comfort, and make the world a better place.
“I love our brand and what we do. It’s a proud thing to work for a company that people really respect and know,” says Lori Garcia, Marketing Leader.
The company’s distinct management style is all about coaching while connecting, because building real connections is a critical aspect of its unified culture. Employees have the freedom to make big decisions independently, can always discuss difficulties with leadership openly and respectfully, and are positively challenged to take charge of their careers.
And as a bonus, employees get to enjoy a wide variety of day-to-day perks, from the on-site gym and health center to the walking path around the campus. Additionally, the cafe provides a great spot for grabbing lunch with co-workers.
“Owens Corning is a people-based company. People are friendly—and politics don’t get in the way,” says Tim Keefer, Digital Solutions Partner.
