Kurilko added, "We strongly believe that our corporate character is the driving force behind our elite overall business performance and something we take great care to nurture and develop."
Shiloh Boss, director of organizational development, points out, "As leaders, our job is to create the vital conditions for a healthy culture so that it sustains itself. We pay special attention to ongoing team building and talent development to ensure these conditions are alive and well."
