Veert, VP, looks for opportunities to improve both his own skills, and the efficacy of the business systems and practices. He is forward-thinking when it comes to training and understands the concept of investing in your team to build a strong company. He recently learned of an employee struggling with literacy, making such things as paperwork and training into a stressful situation for him, and offered company-sponsored basic literacy support.
