We recently sat down with Chris to get an insight on his experience with the Future Leaders program.
How has the Future Leaders Program given you and insight into the company? "The program has allowed me to work with multiple departments in the corporate office, and to learn many different aspects about the business. It has allowed me to not only get knowledge about the company, but to pick the path in which I think I will be the most successful."
What’s the biggest takeaway from your time in the program? "The relationships I’ve been able to build with multiple people in multiple departments. Instead of being stuck in one department I’ve been able to learn the business as a whole, and I can now utilize those connections to get things done."
What advice would you give to someone thinking about doing the Future Leaders Program? "Do it. It has been very beneficial to me in starting my career. Also, to use every opportunity you can to try something new. The program is a learning experience, and I would highly recommend it."
