Nettie Nitzberg, a recognized expert in helping global companies maximize their people investments and founder and principal of West5 Consulting (www.west5consulting.com), a people and organization development company that is dedicated to solving people problems that impact business success, was a recent guest on “Radio Entrepreneurs.” Throughout the interview with the show’s host, Jeffrey Davis, she discussed the importance of onboarding, as well as how companies can encourage employee engagement and enhance company culture.
Radio Entrepreneurs shares the stories of entrepreneurs in the interest of giving more exposure to innovative and fast-moving companies while creating a knowledge pool for the enrichment of the entrepreneurial community around the world. The show is broadcast daily and the individuals in the interviews are entrepreneurs from various backgrounds, all supported by the Radio Entrepreneurs staff, social media, the Mage team, and Davis. The conversation is their story: the story of who they are and how they became an entrepreneur.
