Mentoring is a Meaningful Way to Help Others

November 13, 2020 | Human connection Steven M. Bradford, ABI Chair, HNI Corporation, Muscatine,

The focus of this edition of Business Record Iowa—mentorship—is a timely one. I’m sure you will enjoy reading this feature article. It is natural at this time of the year to be thankful and to contemplate how you can help others. Mentoring someone is a terrific way to do just that.

Speaking of being thankful, I am grateful for the opportunity to work at HNI Corporation with smart, innovative, energetic and caring members. They make working at HNI rewarding and drive our customer-first mindset. Thanks to these great colleagues, HNI Corporation is a global industry leader. At ABI, I am grateful to get to meet and work with our state's best business leaders.

These are women and men focused on their employees, their businesses and on serving their customers. They are leaders who want to make Iowa better and who create economic opportunity every day.

One other quick note. It is not too early to make your plans to attend next year's Taking Care of Business Conference. ABI will hold its 118th annual convention in Iowa City/Coralville June 8-10 of next year. You won’t want to miss this event! At the conference, you will hear terrific nationally-known speakers, visit fabulous new venues, enjoy great hospitality and network with Iowa's best business leaders. Watch for more information soon, but reserve the time on your calendar now.
