W. Rogers Company understands that a successful company must invest in its employees. When Warren Rogers became President in 1992, he implemented programs that enhanced employee retention and satisfaction.
Warren management style and innovative practices grew out of a personal desire to continue what founder William "Jolly" Rogers started by creating a company that maintains a standard of excellence as well as a company where people would want to spend their entire career. When new projects begin, W. Rogers Company routinely hires employees from the local workforce, who compliment a core of long-term and experienced W. Rogers Company employees. Hiring local talent helps the company become an integral part of the communities that it serves, which is important to W. Rogers Company.
