Congratulations, Randy!
Action, Inc. Employee of the Quarter

Randy Roberts
This is what Project Manager, Jason Deblock had to say about Randy:

Randy Roberts is a foreman who has been working on Fairfield and Premier medical. 
Those jobs were not his to run, but he has jumped in and got-er done. He is very dedicated and will unselfishly help anybody to do anything. Everybody wants Randy on their job and, in my opinion, there is not a better compliment. 

Great job, Randy!

Springdale High School
Education Partnership

Welcome Springdale High School! Action, Inc. thanks Springdale HS for giving us the opportunity to spend the day with some of its students and faculty.

The students were able to learn about what Action does and how we do it. They also got to hear cool stories from Kenny Brown, senior project manager, who’s worked 33 years for Action! They learned how things changed from the “old ways” to much more efficient “new ways.” Plus, students were treated to Art’s BBQ!

Why do we do this?

Side by side, Action, Inc. and Springdale HS are mutually committed to students to provide the resources for a great career and education and there is no better way than for them to see it for themselves…
