Employees at High Concrete Structures Inc., a Denver, PA, precast/prestress plant have the chance to "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" thanks to a new project called "Operation Role Switch." The project was created in order to bring an increased understanding of, and a deeper appreciation for, the job done by others.
