Graduate Student Needs Boulder City Businesses Help
Occasionally the Chamber is contacted by various schools across the country to participate in surveys to help them with various educational programs. Because of our unique community, we are relied on heavily to help students with their master's degree projects and other research projects they are working on. One such student Alice Brawley, is a graduate student at Clemson University is conducting a survey of family businesses with workers across the US. She grew up as a part of her family's small business and is passionate about the work and excited to share what she finds as a result of the survey. The survey will link a few easy-to-use ways of managing employees, to important business goals, namely employee performance, retention and customer service quality. Feel free to reach out to Alice at for more information or if you would like to provide Alice some more insight. Here is the link to the survey: . Please consider taking the survey and helping out an amazing student! It doesn't take much time at all and Alice is excited to share what she learns!
