2018 CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS

General Overview

HOW WE PARTNER

In working with our corporate partners, such as Grainger, U.S. Cellular, and J.P. Morgan Chase, we have realized that there are four key areas we can support enterprise organizations with internal goals related to their workforce and workplace, and external goals related to the marketplace:

  • Corporate Identity (Culture & Brand)
  • Promotion
  • Recruitment
  • Retention
