Founded in 1951 in Illinois, Lankford conducts work today in all 50 U.S. states primarily in renovating interior fixtures for large, established companies such as Amazon, Starbucks, Target, and CVS. Its workforce is almost exclusively comprised of union members.
“Emerge Diagnostics has been invaluable to us as a company,” says Judi Tipps, director of operations at Lankford. “My goal is to keep my workers and subcontractors happy and healthy on the job. When there’s an injury, we need to know, to the best of our ability, how and when did the injury occur. What sort of injury is it? Did it actually happen on the job and who can provide the best treatment for them?”

Supply chain solutions have never been more important than in today’s increasingly connected and online economy. Logistics—the art and science of getting products from here to there, on time, with thorough tracking and accounting—makes business happen these days. This time-critical work is what J.B. Hunt does.
Began as a trucking company in 1961, J.B. Hunt today embraces all aspects, and challenges, of a full-service logistics service, connecting products with people across the U.S. While it started with two brothers in Arkansas, J.B. Hunt now employs more than 30,000 people, approximately 20,000 of whom are truck drivers, all over the country.
Taking care of these people, at the core of their business’ success, is the job of Greer Woodruff, senior vice president of safety, security and personnel at J.B. Hunt.
“We started working with Emerge Diagnostics in 2016 as a pilot program,” says Woodruff. “We used a post-offer, pre-placement functional capacity test. Essentially, it’s a test that’s supposed to simulate job activities: stooping, bending, lifting, placing items, and so forth. It simulates the job. If someone can’t perform these duties, they would be disqualified from hiring.”
