LSS Holdings, Hughes Environmental and LSS Life Safety Services is dedicated to celebrating our diverse workforce with our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion! In honor of April being Celebrate Diversity Month, we will be highlighting our diversity and celebrating what makes us unique!

LSS Holdings' Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to creating and maintaining a workplace in which all employees have an opportunity to participate and contribute fully to the success of the business and are valued for their skills, experience, and unique perspectives. This commitment is embodied in company policy and the way we do business at the Company and is an important principle of sound business management.


April Celebrating Diversity - Rashad
Celebrating Rashad Taylor! Rashad is the IT Manager for LSS Holdings, Hughes Environmental, and LSS Life Safety Services® and has been with our company for 10 years. With Rashad’s dedication to technology and his excitement for bringing it to our work, we are confident this company would not run without him.

Black men in IT Management positions are underrepresented at only 3% of their field and are often underpaid compared to their counterparts, but Rashad runs his department with integrity, passion, and a dry, sarcastic wit that keeps you on your toes. He accepts requests in the form of chocolate when you need your password reset but addresses issues immediately to help you be the best you can be at your job.

Join us in celebrating Rashad today!
April Celebrating Diversity - Scott
Celebrating Scott Waldman, Director of Marketing!

Scott joined the marketing team at LSS Holdings around 5 years ago and we haven't been able to shake him since! He is known as the "Hubspot guru" here in the office and can often be found boosting office morale with his well-timed pithy comments and somewhat self-deprecating humor.

We miss Scott when he is out of office celebrating the Jewish High Holy days at his synagogue, where he is an active member, but we also know he'll probably crack a joke that makes us groan once he comes back!

Thank you, Scott, for all you do for us!
April Celebrating Diversity - Neha
Celebrating Neha Panchdhar, Manager of Continuous Improvement!

Neha has been with LSS Holdings for almost 2 years and has moved through the ranks to her current position where she is constantly pushing us to become better at what we do. With a background in engineering and her penchant for learning and growing, she isn’t afraid to try new things and take us all with her on that journey with her.

As a transplant from India, Neha’s love of her family’s culture is rooted in the customs and rituals. She can often be found bringing in tasty dishes and treats to share with our company office and teaching us about different holidays that she celebrates. Her passion for education and learning doesn’t just stop with work, but is found in her love of exploring new places and making new friends.

We welcome you to celebrate Neha with us!
April Celebrating Diversity - Jeremy
Celebrating Jeremy Sauter, the Hughes Environmental Senior Director of Operations!

Jeremy joined LSS Holdings as a part of Hughes late in 2021 after spending a significant time overseas traveling in a previous position. His experience as an instructor and specialist makes him the perfect person to be in charge of Hughes Operations! Since joining our team he has focused on growing himself and gained not only NADCA certification, but also has become an OSHA Authorized Trainer! He not only brings a high level of knowledge to the office, but also his positive and plucky attitude! He can often be found cracking jokes and finding ways to solve problems.

Jeremy passion isn't limited to work, but he also loves spending time with his family (1 son and a daughter on the way!), playing chess, riding motorcycles, fishing, and shooting pool!

Join us in celebrating Jeremy today!
April Celebrating Diversity - Karen
Celebrating Karen Lovely, a Sales Administrator for LSS Life Safety Services®.

If we had to name an office grandmother, it would be Karen. Although Karen has only been with the company for almost a year, she is already known for her kind smile and welcoming demeanor. Karen originally joined the LSS family in the Inside Sales department but with her administrative background, when a Sales Administrator position opened, she knew that was the perfect job for her and she has excelled in that position.

When Karen isn't busy keeping her sales team members on track, she can be found spending time with her grandkids and trying new things. Karen's presence in the workplace is one that is missed whenever she is gone and we appreciate all she brings to our team.

Join us in celebrating Karen today!
April Celebrating Diversity - Natasha
Celebrating the diversity in our LSS Holdings workforce with the person who helps bring new people into that workforce - Natasha Cummings, LSS Holdings Director of Recruitment!

Natasha joined the LSS Holdings team late in 2022 and has been making great strides in our recruitment and employee appreciation efforts! She can be found walking through the office every morning with a smile and warm greeting for everyone. Her friendly demeanor is missed when she's away at career fairs or representing LSS Holdings at different community events.

Natasha credits her social butterfly personality with her childhood upbringing in the Bahamas. She loves connecting with new people and getting to know them on a personal level. Her drive for success is ensuring that she recruits the right person for the right career. She also believes that having a diverse workforce gives our organization an advantage and everyone within our organization adds value.

Join us in celebrating Natasha today!
