Terri L. Coleman — Senior Technical Communication Specialist
“A requirement of being in the military is the ability to work as a team. As a project manager at Haworth, I draw on my experience every day to work effectively to reach our team goal.”
Joshua Raymond — CNC Operator
“Haworth is very supportive of its military members. I was working in the plant when I was deployed in 2008. Throughout my year of active duty, Haworth not only kept my job, but also gave me my regular pay increases. I’m still in the National Guard and can work around my drill schedule. I feel valued as a veteran working for this company.”
