Danos Company Culture


By: Paul Danos

Earlier this week, Stacey Gisclair, our vice president of human resources, presented “How to Attract, Grow and Retain a Workforce of the Future” at the 2019 LAGCOE conference in New Orleans. Her presentation focused on Danos’ journey of establishing a company culture founded on purpose, vision and values. Stacey wrapped up the presentation with a powerful statement that really struck me, “The Danos culture is not for everyone.”

I’d like to think that everyone would want to be a part of our company, but Stacey is right; Danos is not for everyone, and that’s okay. We welcome all who join our team and help fulfill our purpose of Honoring God and Developing Great People to Solve Big Challenges for Our Customers and Communities. For those who decide to go in a different direction, if they strive to live our values while at Danos and as they move on, we are proud to call you Danos alumni, and we wish you all the best.

If you’d like to learn more about our ten-plus year journey to creating the Danos culture, Stacey will be giving her presentation at a lunch and learn later this month. Be on the lookout for the invitation that will include details on how to attend live and via WebEx.
