Bev chats with Don Bell about the importance of fun and how that leads to engaged employees and happy customers. Don believes in aligning employee and employer interests and being proactive about finding ways to inspire employees. He ascribes his success to creating a “fun first” culture, where everyone acknowledged the need to make a profit, but they chose to get there in a very different way from the rest of their industry.
