Founders Meetup 6/10/21
Learn how to inspire the updated employee while munching on some amazing food!

How do you motivate the modern day employee? How can managers and executives motivate workers to make them happier and more productive? How can employees find meaning and motivation in their careers?

Hear from our guest speaker Dr. Brad Ward Professor of Business Administration at Milligan University. Explaining the framework for motivating employees. Answering the impossible question of what persuades an employee to create meaningful work.

Dr. Brad Ward received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Western Michigan University, a master of arts in organizational management from Spring Arbor University, and his doctor of business administration from George Fox University. He is also a certified Six Sigma Green Belt through the American Society for Quality/Villanova University.
