LRS is committed to remaining an active voice for environmental change while working to uplift the communities we work and live in. That’s why we’re consistently investing in community education, partnering with Chicagoland charities, organizations, and schools to educate the public on recycling best practices.
After seeing a shortage of viable mechanics in the workforce, we also launched the LRS/Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Early Employment Program, which employs UTI students as ‘Mechanics in Training’ and pairs them with experienced ‘Mentor Mechanics’ to learn new skills in an LRS garage. When students graduate from UTI, they are offered a full-time position with LRS.
LRS also launched an endowed scholarship program for promising business students struggling with financial hardship, and joined forces with the College of Business to launch the LRS Student Success Center at Barsema Hall in 2022.
At LRS, we love having a team that’s dedicated, diverse, and full of passion for protecting the planet. Our employees represent the best of the best, forming a rich mosaic of lived experiences that serve as the fabric and strength of our organization. Through our diversity we find commonality and an underlying unity that enables us to go above and beyond in providing exceptional customer experiences.
LRS continues to attract and retain top talent through transparent hiring processes that embrace gender equality, racial diversity, and age inclusivity. We also prioritize hiring veterans who served in our nation’s armed forces, persons with disabilities, and offering second chance career pathways for incarcerated populations.
LRS is proud to embrace causes that are focused on uplifting our communities, including:
