Sales Manager Mike Terlikowski on showing employees they are valued
"It's the little things — the owner singing 'Happy Birthday' to you over the intercom, sports tickets being offered to team members, pastors available to talk and an open-door policy where any employee can talk to any manager any day."
Special Finance Manager Art Palinski on keeping employees engaged
"We have a corporate office, but nothing is mandated. We are able to work together to make sure things are compliant, and we're reflecting the heart of the company well, but as a store, we're able to set our own personality and programs. It's our own, and we all know it."
Kelli Kunes, events and special projects manager, on attracting employees
"We've recently found a lot of success in placing Facebook ads for our openings and encouraging our team to share them throughout their network."
