Four of the fastest-growing businesses in Northern Nevada businesses took the stage and shared their sage advice at a special event hosted by NCET on Jan. 21 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. During the discussion, they shared insights on everything from building a culture to whether or not social media really is worth the effort. Here’s a sneak peek of what they had to say.
“Every summer we have a barbecue on Friday and each department is in charge of what the theme of the barbecue is,” said Ty Whitaker, co-founder of The Abbi Agency. “And through the employee surveys, we discovered that the biggest thing that they talked about was those barbecues on Fridays.”
The Abbi Agency grew 105% over the last three years and reported $4.2 million in revenue in 2018, according to Inc., so the proof is in the pudding (or in this case, the pizza and BBQ).
