Our 1 in a MIL spotlight recognizes Rick Long of Millennium.
Millennium’s Influential Leaders (aka 1 in a MIL) help inspire people to be the best versions of themselves while helping drive the business forward. Their goals include both people and results; they create circles of influence and lead by inspiring people around them to be better. They aren’t necessarily managers or have direct reports. However, they contribute to the overall success of Millennium by the way they carry themselves, support the organization, and overall contribute to our culture. They are caring and curious. They are dependable and passionate. They are one in a Millennium.
Today we are excited to turn that spotlight on Rick Long. Rick heads up our Utah warehouse. If you have been lucky enough to visit his warehouse for an order pick-up, you know he works hard to keep an orderly warehouse and yard. Rick takes pride in his work and is always willing to go above and beyond for his fellow employees and clients. Even if it means being called back to the warehouse on a Friday to help pull a last-minute order. You can count on Rick to be there when you need him.
We sat down with Rick to get to know him a little better and learn about his experiences working for Millennium and what he is passionate about outside of work.
