Small Business Lunch at Halls
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are pleased to present Giff Daughtridge, Vice President and General Manager of Nucor Steel Berkeley as our guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, April 10th.
The Lowcountry mill is Nucor's largest in terms of employment, assets, tons produced and revenue. They have invested more than a billion dollars in the Berkeley County plant that accounts for more than 1,500 high-paying area jobs.
Nucor is nationally recognized as a bottom-up management corporation where every employee has a voice in how the company is run and how it operates. "Our people excel because they are allowed to fail. It's why our managers encourage their teammates to try out their new ideas. It's this freedom to try that gives us one of the most creative, get-it-done workforces in the world."
**Can your business benefit from a bottom-up management style?
**Can you push decision-making down to the lowest level?
**How can you empower your employees to make decisions?
A Fortune 500 Company, Nucor is the largest producer of steel in the United States and the largest metals recycler in the Western Hemisphere with $19 billion in sales and 22,300 employees. Each facility has a great amount of freedom in running its own operations and meeting its customers' needs.
At Nucor, everyone's compensation is based on pay for performance. That means income is tied directly to the amount of "prime" steel produced each day. And for management, how well the company does overall. In their experience, "teammates perform better when they have the opportunity to earn according to their productivity." Maybe that's why they enjoy pay above the industry average, and why their productivity records are the envy of the industry.
A graduate of Lafayette College, Daughtridge has been the GM of the Nucor Berkeley facility since 2007. This year they will recycle and ship over 2 million tons of steel with about $2 million in revenue and $1 billion in assets including the $130 million in capital expenditure projects for '13 and '14.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with an imaginative three-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.
Tickets are $29 per person for the luncheon and parking. Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch is served promptly at noon. Limited seating of 70 participants provides an intimate experience with each speaker.
