Meet Sheldon Lavin: A Meat Services Expert with Four Decades Worth of Experience at the OSI Group
Sheldon Lavin has played a pivotal role in the growth and expansion of the OSI group of companies. Without the brilliant strategist, the firm might not have exploded into the limelight to become one of the World’s most trusted foods supplier. The OSI Group started small in Illinois, Chicago over a hundred years now past. During its hey days the establishment used to only cater to a small clientele base but owing to its superior quality products, it gained popularity very rapidly.
Subsidiaries of the OSI Group
Soon, the OSI brand started getting tenders from hotels and restaurants in the state and there was no stopping its rise from that point. The success of Sheldon and her company would not have been possible were it not for them landing contracts to supply meat to the food outlet, McDonald’s. OSI Group got established by German immigrants and it went on to branch out into smaller subsidiaries. These branches include the OSI International Foods, OSI International LLC, OSI Group and the OSI Industries.
Unique Office Culture
Sheldon Lavin has made sure that the outlet hires and retains only the best staff. One unique attribute of the company is that it is more of a home to the employees than it is a workplace. That means, that the staff working here get pampered and showered with all the niceties and goodies you wouldn’t expect to find in a typical Chicago-based enterprise. It’s very rare to hear of the OSI Group either firing an individual or mass retrenching its staff. Even in the toughest of times, the company still finds means and ways to keep their workers happy and satisfied.
