Flipping the Industry- People and Profit with Keyser and beni.fit E7
The conversation with Ash Hachmeister and Noah Barrasso was such an insightful conversation about servant leadership, company culture, and building business relationships. Keyser and beni.fit are both wonderful examples of companies that are turning their industry on its head. Both work in industries that are usually out to just make a buck. So how do you continue to grow a company and make money, while also focusing on the people and what is truly best for them? That’s what they discuss in this conversation.
Both Ash and Noah are doing great things in their companies to not only focus on the needs of the clients/employees, but on making everything easier for them to understand as well. Health insurance can be extremely difficult to understand but Ash and his team are there to truly help the individuals pick the plans and options that are best for them because it is not a one size situation. Speaking of size, Noah is there to not only help explain things on the corporate real estate side, but also make sure that the companies they help are really finding the space that is the right size, design, layout and feel to support their company growth and culture.
The listeners are able to get a deeper look into how things work at Keyser when it comes to serving others and how “Being a selfless servant is the most selfish thing to do for your business.” These topics of culture, growth, support, and business relations builds and draws the conversation. beni.fit is flipping their industry on the head by truly focusing on the benefit needs of the employees and making sure they are getting the benefits support they truly need. This is a great show for folks to listen to if they want to understand the benefits of selfless service and even hear ways to start activating this in their own lives. This is also a great opportunity to hear from companies that are not doing things “the same old way.” They have changed their industries for the better and they are not keeping it a secret about how they are doing this- so listen in!
