Sean Dillon: Helping Workwell Make Happy Customers

As Warehouse Manager at Workwell Industries, Sean Dillon enjoys helping his team overcome challenges. Overseeing forklift safety, shipping and receiving, and inventory operations is a big part of his job, but what he loves most is developing other people along the way. At Workwell, he helps train and support team members that would typically have trouble finding employment elsewhere.  

Workwell Industries gives me the opportunity to help people turn their lives around and be successful,” says Sean. “Whether the individual grows with the company or grows personally and professionally and is able to secure a better position elsewhere, it is fulfilling to know that I helped them along in their journey.”  

Organized Warehouse = Efficient Workflow

Sean applies his logistics expertise in a way that helps others learn, grow, and succeed. He helped Workwell move from high risk to low risk through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s risk assessment, strengthening the organization’s international supply chain. He is also dedicated to the finer details of making sure accurate orders deliver on time to best serve customers’ needs. He supports his team members in learning what it takes to create an organized warehouse with efficient workflow, and managers and customers have taken note.  

“When daytoday operations run with satisfied customers and minimal interruptions, I know all the hard work and effort is paying off,” Sean says. “I want to help leave the world a better place than I found it.” 

When he is not working, Sean loves traveling, playing video games, and cheering on Philadelphia sports.

Meet Maggie

Maggie Lewis has been promoted to Operations Manager at Workwell Industries. She holds an associate degree from Ivy Tech Community College and began her career at Workwell in January 2020. Maggie is proud to serve others through her work planning events, managing production data, and assisting CEO Phil Berry with various projects.

Personally, Maggie enjoys spending time with her children. Her organizational skills at work extend to a hobby at home, where she meticulously arranges her closet by color and teaches her children how to fold towels and washcloths to fit neatly in storage. 

Maggie is inspired by her colleagues to find joy in the midst of storms. “Workwell can be many things for many people,” she said. “It can be a new beginning for someone with socioeconomic barriers, a resume-builder for new graduates to gain industry knowledge or a company that you join at a young age and don’t leave until you retire. For me, Workwell is all about helping people.”

"We were introduced to Workwell Industries as a potential re-packing facility for a major project we had been awarded by our largest customer.
We are based in the UK and our challenge was to find a suitable and reliable partner in the US, to transfer our bulk glass deliveries into 12 pack corrugate cases.
Based on their proactive responses, attention to detail and a fair and transparent pricing proposal, we made a decision to move forward with Workwell on this project. From the outset, they have been incredibly professional to work with. Their experience in this field helped us immensely and having received the specification for the re-work, they advised on the most efficient format and configuration of the cases, to ensure the best efficiency in their facility whilst maintaining a competitive price.
From the time of production commencing, they have supplied daily output rates, maintained traceability from bulk glass to corrugate, arranged transport to our customer and have kept to a very challenging deadline we were given at the beginning of the project. There has been excellent feedback of service or quality from our customer and the entire service from start to finish has been exemplary.
In addition to the above, Workwell Industries is a non-profit organization that is committed to creating jobs for people with disabilities and others who experience barriers to employment. This is another excellent reason to choose Workwell Industries for any re-packing services they offer. We would recommend them wholeheartedly and thank them for their excellent service they provided."

“We like working with Workwell Industries, because they’re a not-for-profit and they help people overcome obstacles and we just believe in that as a company. We believe in leveling the playing field and helping people bring their whole selves every day of work. But that wouldn’t be enough, I mean, while we believe in it we could just give a donation. We believe in them because of the quality that they do, they’re on time, they’re very competitive, and they’ll bend over backwards to get things done and to go a good job for you. That’s just being competitive. How cool when you can help people succeed and they deliver a good product. Think of how fulfilling that is and how rewarding that is for all of us, plus they help us be successful in the global environment. How cool is that? I love that. With the advent of the new racking system and many other upgrades, Workwell Industries has shown they are ready to compete locally, statewide, national and internationally in the world of packaging and assembly. They’re going to continue to play a great role in the development of the West End of Louisville. “

"Part of when I learned about Workwell Industries history and that really it grew out of… much more [than] a charity, in terms of how to help disadvantaged or disabled people… and they have actually built that into a very competitive business. They’re able to balance… being such a good servant to the community and when you look at them, it’s actually a very little of their revenue or their money comes from charitable contributions."
