Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) Symposium and Showcase

May 28, 2023

At the recent Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) Symposium and Showcase, Aster Brands' Jake Manthei participated on a panel exploring state and local labor trends. He joined workforce experts from the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, the Small Business Association of Michigan, and Michigan State University's School of Human Resources and Labor Relations. Jake shared the importance of Aster Brands' talent retention and development philosophy remaining in lockstep with the company's vision and values. When you choose to join Aster Brands, you'll be challenged, counted on, and most importantly, valued. You'll also find that our generous profit sharing system, award-winning adoption and foster care reimbursement program, and access to a full-time licensed counselor reinforce that we believe life and work are a gift so we don't define people by what they can achieve or produce.
