Now that Larry's back in charge, he's using the lessons he learned to be a better manager and improve the lives of his employees.

For example, he invites Janice to be part of a Waste Management task force that's dedicated to improving conditions for female employees and asks Fred to share some of his inspirational spirit with the company's senior leadership team. To reward her for her work, Jaclyn is promoted to a supervisor position and put on salary.

Looking back, Larry says this experience helped make him a better manager and a better person.

"On the personal level, I am blessed. I have so many great things in my life. I have a wife that I've been married to almost 29 years and a wonderful family," he says. "[And I have] great employees. ... Every job I had, the people welcomed me in. They truly cared about me as a person and wanted me to be successful and be part of that team."
