Much of Leggett & Platt's recent past has been characterized by change. We've changed our primary financial objective to Total Shareholder Return. We've changed our mix of businesses by divesting some of them. We've even changed our willingness to utilize external resources, when for example it comes to assessing opportunities for future growth. Leggett & Platt is a company with a rich, nearly 130-year history, and we honor that past while continually looking to the future.
Our people hold the key to our long-term success. While information, skills, and products may become commodities, people - with their creativity, curiosity, and initiative - cannot. All of Leggett & Platt's talent management practices are geared toward building a workforce and management team able to react to and capitalize upon changes the Company will face.
