“We grow trees and people.” We believe in the limitless potential of individuals. And at RoyOMartin, you’ll find we put our words into action.

Some of the many training and employee-development programs we offer include:


We hold fast to the values set forth by our founder nearly 100 years ago. “I Believe” is the name of our employee-engagement and outreach program that features five pillars: “I Believe in You,” “I Believe in Great Starts,” “I Believe in Our Future,” “I Believe in Leadership,” and “I Believe in R.I.C.H.E.S.”


The more you learn, the more you earn. Our Pay for Knowledge and Skills (PKS) program consists of custom, self-driven advancement plans for each of our manufacturing team members. Through learning different skills in a given work system, PKS participants can earn a higher wage through a defined system of cross-training.


The sky is the limit. To encourage continued growth and learning amongst manufacturing team members who have mastered his or her work system, we offer the opportunity to learn skills in other areas of the plant, thereby increasing earning potential. This new program will soon be available to all plant locations.


More maintenance skills, more money. Through our newest employee-advancement program, industrial electricians enjoy the opportunity to sharpen their skills through cross-training in mechanical maintenance, and vice versa. This new program will soon be available to all plant locations.


It’s like college, except with more real-life application. Our internal leadership-development program combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training to teach participants a variety of hard and soft skills critical across our organization.


Leadership is not just a title; it’s about influence. We equip organizational leaders with annual and ongoing training to hone their interpersonal and technical skills.


Community outreach, internalized. In addition to their “day job,” several of our current employees serve as mentors to learners through our WoodWorks industry-based curriculum in high schools across Louisiana and Texas.
