Clayton Dennard, owner Charleston, S.C. — Going Coastal Transportation is the recipient of the 2nd Quarter 2017 LMC Group Circle of Excellence Award. Going Coastal won the award for excellence in human resources.

For almost a decade, Going Coastal has provided ground transportation service in beautiful and historic Charleston, S.C. In addition to black car airport service, Going Coastal is known for its luxury wedding limousines and exciting party bus outings. Owner Clayton Dennard is a member of the National Limousine Association, the North Carolina Limousine Association, and the Charleston Limousine Association. To build on his success over the past ten years, Dennard has invested in his most important asset—his employees—by partnering with The LMC Group in human resources projects.

As LMC Director of Human Resources Christina Davis worked with the Going Coastal team on crafting an online employee handbook and updating employee files, she was impressed by the culture Dennard has established at his company. Committed to compliance in HR matters, he makes sure his employees understand policies and procedures. Beyond that, he shows his employees how much he values them by offering continuous feedback, taking the time to really talk with them, and providing catered dinners at team meetings. He treats his team with the respect they deserve: he is understanding, he listens, and he explains his reasoning behind decisions and new policies.

“From the start, Clayton impressed me with his genuine care for his employees,” says Davis. “Listening to Clayton talk to his employees, watching him listen to them, and seeing him treat them with respect as team members are some of the reasons I was impressed by his excellent leadership.
