Freije-RSC Contributes To Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity Board Build

During the month of April Freije-RSC was proud to donate time and labor to assist the Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity organization with their first ever Board Build. What is a Board Build, you ask? Rather than the Habitat for Humanity board members going into the community to raise money through outings and lunches, they strap on their tool belts and invite local businesses to assist them in building a home for a local family in need.

A truly humbling experience, our team of foreman employees was honored to provide assistance on tasks such as plumbing and mechanical projects.


It was an amazing experience to see the project from start to finish. I couldn’t believe that it started as a shell and a month later was livable. At the kick off meeting we found out that these homes aren’t given away, they’re earned. Knowing that I helped set the piping and build the ductwork was very rewarding. I can’t wait to do it again and I hope to set up a company build day shortly. ” – Ashley Griffith, Freije-RSC Construction Coordinator


Collectively, the Board Build raised over $66,500 to help fund this family’s very first house. Freije-RSC is proud to have worked on such a rewarding build and welcomes the Harris family to their home.

Growing My People to Grow My Business

Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in The YPO Indiana Chapter’s January Newsletter.

As a business owner, I’m constantly thinking about success—what it means, what it looks like, and how to achieve it; how to increase profit, get more business and improve the bottom-line. It wasn’t until a year ago when I was talking with a friend and fellow business owner that I realized I was focusing on the wrong area. I was looking directly at our bottom-line and thinking of ways to improve it without focusing first on the people who work so hard for it every day—my employees. So I shifted my focus to the people.

In studying how to create longevity for Freije-RSC, it became apparent that I must invest in the people, and primarily invest in them beyond work. I researched and spent time thinking about my employee base, not just in their day-to-day roles at Freije-RSC, but instead as people with lives outside of work—as spouses, as parents, etc. After doing so, I discovered that many of our issues with our employees were not related to their skills on the job, but rather related to their personal lives—relationships at home, parenting, financial management, etc.
