One of the most challenging things about entrepreneurship is finding – and keeping – great people to help you carry out your vision. Hear about how Brent and Melissa Schwoerer have created a positive culture in our business. They’ll discuss engagement, accountability and how to help people find their “spotlight.
Brent has a master’s degree in human resources and organizational development from the University of Illinois and learned the importance of culture during his corporate career prior to opening Engrained. Melissa is an attorney who worked as a labor relations and human resources manager in governmental, health care and manufacturing industries.
