In reference to healthy culture habits, GGOB said, “[Publisher Logan] Aguirre and her leadership team have begun working with their staff to develop longer-term career plans to ensure that employees see how they can continue to grow their careers within the organization…‘Our goal is to become an employer of choice,’ says Aguirre. As part of celebrating their 25th anniversary, the 417 team has made “Community Impact” their focus for 2023—which focuses on how they can continue to engage and build community relationships while shining a light on the Ozarks.”
In reference to our healthy people focus, GGOB said: “To help improve the work-life balance among the staff, 417 has also put a focus on ensuring that every employee uses their entire allotment of paid time off each year—and that they bring back photos and stories to share with their colleagues.”
