Pearson-Kelly Technology Spills Secrets to Culture Success

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI – Chelsey Bode, CEO, and Lee Flood, President, spoke on April 28 about how they built a business structure and culture that’s allowed for 50 percent revenue and 20 percent employee growth since 2020. 

Entitled “Define Culture Before It Defines You,” the discussion centered around the four building blocks of a winning culture, how culture drives recruitment efforts and the ways it can drive overall business success.
