Above all, RES values transparency, Landry says—which helps his team reach safety and performance goals. “They’re all intertwined,” he says. It’s important to think of clients as partners, Henderson says. Without them— and without satisfying their needs—RES would not be where it is today. “We don’t take clients for granted,” he says. Constant communication and frequent reviews of how projects are going are central to what Henderson calls “the RES way” of doing things. That makes it easier to catch errors early. And RES employees

have a knack for finding a way around just about any obstacle thrown in their path on the job, Henderson says. While some companies spend a lot of resources on sales and marketing, RES focuses on performance. “We have quality. We have training. We have performance reviews,” Henderson says. “Everything is about execution. Everything is about getting the client what they need.” “That’s why we have such great client retention. I always say we have 300 salesmen,” Landry adds, referring to the

company’s over 300 team members. With many industrial facilities along the Mississippi River in expansion mode, RES recently opened an office in Vacherie in St. James Parish. It’s located in a 150-year-old former general store. Landry says renovating it was a way to preserve a piece of local history and give back to the community. The new office also will provide a more convenient location for meetings with clients in the River Parishes. That makes things easier on RES employees working in the area, too, Landry says.

The company’s success ultimately goes back to those employees and their dedication to working with clients to deliver a high-quality finished product. RES is working with Louisiana universities and trade schools to promote the growing number of opportunities in engineering and industrial careers. It also prizes investing in its current employees through training and mentoring. “We’re doing the most we can do to retain top talent and gain top talent moving forward,” Landry says. “Our company is our employees.”
