Our People ARE Raymond
Our culture—like our business—is shaped by our people. We pride ourselves on doing everything to the best of our abilities while enjoying what we do, and who we do it with. In short, we take our work seriously without taking ourselves too seriously.
We recognize achievements and milestones. We celebrate successes. And we come to work every day with a commitment to each other and to the guiding principles of the company.
