DHR International and Elevate Partners‘ Future Ready Leaders series asks CEOs and other top leaders what it takes to be a successful leader now and as we prepare for the future.
Here, Everett Harper, CEO & Founder of Truss, talks about how his company’s values have created a people-centric and purpose-driven culture that helps team members manage themselves and be successful.
“We wanted our values not to be like an IBM poster, but something that people could live and could act upon on a daily basis. Our employees encounter new things all the time.
