Look who’s here:
I’m not sure what my expectations were, but I’ve been surprised by the talent of the pool we’ve got to work with in the local area, and by ‘the local area’ I mean not only Columbia, but St. Louis, Kansas City, and Rolla.— Jim Chapdelaine / IBM
One of our top executives was working for us out in Los Altos, California. And he came to us and said,’Please let me move there.’ He’s been in Kansas City 3 or 4 years now, and he loves it. I don’t think you could get him to leave.— Augie Grasis III / Handmark
We train displaced workers in rural Missouri for today's IT jobs to keep those jobs in the country. Missouri incentives got us started. The work ethic of our employees keeps us going.— Shane Mayes / Onshore Outsourcing
We have some untapped, unrealized potential here. If there’s anyplace that’s going to take the lead in the global marketplace, it’s going to be St. Louis. St. Louis is visionary, open-minded.— David Steward / World Wide Technology
The work ethic here is really good. People come in and work hard. They’re used to working hard before we hire them.— Jack Prim / Jack Henry & Associates
I've lived in a lot of places, and there is a difference here in how people conduct themselves. There is a strong work ethic and friendliness that I haven't found elsewhere.— Dr. Susanne Cohen / Triumph Pharmaceuticals
