U.S Engineering Company Holdings CEO Tyler Nottberg recently participated in a “Tech Connect” event about post-pandemic workplace dynamics. Organized by the Kansas City Business Journal (KCBJ) and sponsored by CDW, this virtual discussion was titled, “Work Reimagined: Embracing the New Work Dynamic.”
Nottberg recognized U.S. Engineering’s frontline workers and voiced his continued support for destigmatizing mental health, especially during, for many, a particularly stressful year: “A lot of people were put into a pressure cooker when this pandemic happened. We do a lot of work at laboratories and health care facilities. When everyone else was told to go home, we had employees in the field who were told they needed to be in a hospital to help adjust HVAC systems or create Covid units. We had people on the front line running toward where the fire was. For years at U.S. Engineering, we’ve had discussions about the role of mental health and team member well-being. As we move into the future, the concepts of mental well-being and mental wellness services should be expanded upon. I hope those services and discussions will continue once we get back together.”
“Work Reimagined” featured three panelists—Ray Clounch, senior solutions architect for Cradlepoint, Jason Cook, sales engineering director for Rubrik, and Neil Graver, executive technology strategist for CDW—and was moderated by KCBJ’s Stacie Prosser and CDW’s Jeff Gansmann. Nottberg and other area executives were invited to participate virtually.
