National Women in Construction Week is a time to acknowledge and appreciate the career path women have forged in the industry.
Speaking from experience Haley Wyant, a skilled worker and soon to be lab technician at our Buckingham Slate location in Arvonia, VA, advises other women, “don’t get discouraged if you’re the minority for any reason; if you have the drive and desire, you can ‘go for it’ and be as successful as anyone else.”
Haley came to Boxley three years ago after hearing about a job opportunity through a friend and former employee. Armed with a high school degree and some college courses, Haley hit the ground running, excelling at her new career path.
No two days are the same as her responsibilities range from lift truck operator to fabricating and finishing slate hardscape products. As a hard worker, she will be the first one to tell you that at Boxley your work is recognized, and accomplishments are rewarded. In her relatively short time with Boxley, she has experienced first-hand the ability to develop and grow within the company. Currently, Haley is training to become a certified lab technician for Quality Assurance and Quality Control of our Aggregate division.
Boxley works hard to training and expose employees to scenarios that will assist in their development professionally as well as personally. We know when you encourage the growth of an individual, you will better their own future along with the companies.
“We want our employees to be the best they can be and to know we’re here to support them in making it happen—regardless of background, culture, or experience,” says Lori Baisden, the Human Resources Director of Boxley Materials and Georgia Stone Products.
