November 2, 2021

While spending time and dollars on corporate culture programs may not be top-of-mind for many independent retailers, there’s a very real business case to be made for making such an investment. We sit down with Nationwide Marketing Group’s Director of People Development and Learning Kris Kuester to talk about corporate culture, the role it’s played at Nationwide, and how independent retailers can begin to implement their own culture strategy.
