Key Quotes:

  • “It’s harder now than when I started. There definitely were some things that were hard when we were scratching that are not hard now. But there are some things that were easy when we started that are hard now.” – Bradley Flowers
  • “We are not perfect at culture. That’s like the first thing out of my mouth. And it’s not something you accomplish. It’s a living, breathing thing that you’re constantly working on.” – Bradley Flowers
  • “Combined with the average employee now staying at a job for four years and eight months, the average millennial stays at a job for three years and six months, and Gen Z is like two years and eight months. I think of your approach managing people with those few things in mind, it kind of changes the way that you manage.” – Bradley Flowers
