This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Walker Edison was founded in Utah in 2006 and has since grown into a global leader in the eCommerce Ready-to-Assemble furniture space. Still, they remain dedicated to our community, and Brad Bonham, co-founder and CEO of Walker Edison here to tell us how they are doing it.
Walker Edison recently opened a new corporate headquarters building in West Jordan. And it is a perfect fit on so many levels. We felt supported through the entire process and have been excited to get involved in the local community. Already, Walker Edison has jumped in to support the local Jordan School District with donations to their food programs as well as by donating 50,000 masks for students in need. In April we will be working with West Jordan to plant trees throughout the local area.
Almost all of our employees have been working remotely since last March, and we have learned to support them in several new ways. To address mental health concerns, we have increased benefits like free subscriptions to the Calm app, as well as music services, and we’ve provided virtual activities, mental health classes, and support for our employees who, in turn, support local and small businesses.
Walker Edison is doing its part to support their employees and the community at large during these unprecedented times. Learn more at walkeredison.com. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
