We Wrote a Book!

untitled

By 2030, Millennials will account for 75 percent of the American workforce. Do you understand the impact Millennials have on the workplace? Is your office ready? Creating the ideal work environment that accounts for Millennials’ needs is key to attracting and retaining this next generation of top talent, and many more generations to come.

That’s why we set out to discover what Millennials in Southeastern Wisconsin want when it comes to the workplace and published our findings in a book titled, “The Millennial Impact in Southeastern Wisconsin.” The Millennial Impact was co-funded and authored by Schroeder Solutions in partnership with Colliers International Wisconsin. All results from this book are based upon the Public Policy Forum’s recent Millennial survey combined with secondary industry research.

From furniture, amenities to wellness, we have the answers you need to not only improve your work environment, but also the quality of your employees’ working lives. We would like to learn more about your company so we can combine our workplace experience with this valuable information about your changing workforce.

We are happy to deliver you a copy of our book and discuss how we can help you and your future employees. Take our Millennial True/False Quiz below and then let’s talk! Please contact Denise Scardina at dscardina@schroedersolutions.com for more information.

Volunteering and Community Service

We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in a couple of different volunteering events this past year. Giving back to the community and helping those in need truly has been a rewarding experience for our employees. We are excited to continue the gift of volunteering this year and look forward to creating many more meaningful experiences together.

Take a look at some of our past community service work: 

Joe’s Run, Walk and Roll: Schroeder Solutions was a proud sponsor and participant of Joe’s Run, Walk and Roll, which took place this past September at Hart Park. Each year, Joe’s Run, Walk and Roll provides a critical source of funding for Broadscope Disability Services that advances opportunities for people with disabilities and their families. Our Schroeder team walked together on the most beautiful fall day in support of a truly amazing cause!

Grand Prize: Badger Truck 

Cheryl Klein, Marketing Coordinator for Badger Truck, is beginning to take a close look at every aspect of her company culture, including Badger Truck’s work environment.

“We understand the impact our work environment has on our team is strong and having our employees try ergonomic alternatives to their workstations would be an awesome start to our wellness plan launch,” says Klein. 

Klein struggles with shoulder and back pain because of her posture and computer screen level, so she is eager to add a height-adjustable desk to her workstation in order to relieve this pain.

Third Place: Superior Diesel 

Melissa Sisel, Accountant at Superior Diesel, says her main motivation for entering the WorkWell contest was to help improve the overall working conditions for employees. 

“Superior Diesel has always put a lot of value on the people, and we recognize that good health leads to happier and more productive employees. Winning the Humanscale QuickStand will give us the opportunity to experience a completely different way of working throughout the day, and hopefully lead to better health,” says Sisel. 

Sisel also has noticed aches and pains due to extended periods of sitting at her desk and reaching for the keyboard and mouse. She believes that the QuickStand ultimately will help to reverse the strain she feels on her neck and shoulders.
