Barry-Wehmiller’s leadership philosophy is spelled out on a wall outside the company’s parking garage in Clayton. Employees and visitors see it, coming and going: “We imagine a society in which people care about each other first.” CEO Bob Chapman believes so deeply in his “Everybody Matters” philosophy that it’s also framed and hangs like artwork inside the company’s home office at Forsyth and South Brentwood boulevards. The manufacturer of packaging equipment has locations around the world. Ten years ago, Chapman test-drove his people-first business model through the Great Recession. After 40 percent of the company’s product orders evaporated in early 2009, he insisted that no one would be laid off.
