Do you care?  2. Can I trust you?  3. Do you want to do better?  This provides a foundation of service to our employees, customers, and to our community.  Lofton is truly honored to receive this prestigious award from LSU.  We are very appreciative of those who helped us to achieve it, including our inside team, our assignment employees and our clients.”

We Believe...

Relationships are built…one on one.
Know your people - match interest and talents to the tasks.
Don’t manage by numbers. (They just show if we’re on track.) People do the work.
People should feel better when they leave than when they came – and in turn we feel better.
When we help others, we help ourselves.
Great expectations: fair pay, fair treatment, teach me.
Have fun…and be better.
Work at having fun (51% of the time.) If you don’t feel it, fake it. Having fun is not slacking off. Work is more natural than play.
