“Being a fast-growing startup, we are able to offer IBD teams an opportunity to have real impact while benefiting from a truly unique learning experience. Last year, IBD students developed a recruitment and retention strategy for our doctors, salauno’s key employee group. The IBD team created a strategy to define and promote our corporate culture.
