How would you describe your culture?
We practice what we preach. Volunteerism makes employees feel engaged in their community and their coworkers. BVU breeds an environment of collaboration that builds through internal and external projects and volunteerism.
We have combatted eroding culture through thoughtful meetings and cross-departmental synergies. Staff meetings include reports from all departments and special kudos at the beginning. We begin every meeting with a bright spot and recently we have been doing brain teasers to get the creative juices flowing. Our strong culture comes from our strong staff.
