The Back Story

In 2019, Governor Holcomb declared July 31st “Better Work Day” in the state of Indiana. We celebrated like crazy. We blew up the internet with what Better Work means to us. We lifted our teammates up and called out their strengths. We smiled and laughed a lot. And we want a whole week of that for 2020. So without further ado, we’re introducing Better Work Week! We can’t wait to fill the end of July with brightness, belonging, and of course, Better Work.

Conner Burt and Max Yoder display the Better Work Week proclamation.
