Market Explorers: An Innovative Small Business

Subject: Market Explorers: An Innovative Small Business

Majid Khoury will talk about innovative internal management practices that allowed a small business to grow with minimal growing pains. Market Explorers flex hours/flex pay system, team culture, internal feedback processes, including monthly salons with employees, and its extensive training program allowed the company to keep a zero turn-over level with full time staff, promote from within, and allow two new parents to work from home on a part-time basis until daycare was arranged. The talk will also present how Market Explorers incorporated a systemized quality control process in a small business environment.
