Founder & CEO of Worldwide Cyclery & KETL Mtn. Apparel. Jeff Cayley went from racing mountain bikes professionally to building a one-of-a-kind boutique bicycle shop. However, Worldwide Cyclery is no ordinary bicycle shop. With retail locations that double as fulfillment centers in three states across the country, the company is a multi-million dollar, omni-channel retail & media operation that’s landed on the Inc. 5000 list consecutive years, as well as on the Entrepreneur magazine 360 list. Jeff managed to do all this in his early twenties, & his company is now filled with dozens of employees that enjoy a phenomenal company culture & a fast-growing business in an industry they love. Beyond Worldwide Cyclery Jeff recently started heading up an outdoor apparel brand, KETL Mtn. as his next venture alongside Worldwide Cyclery.
The backbone of a company is its employees, but the brain of a business is its leadership. The best leaders inspire and encourage the employees working under them, but even these leaders need positive reinforcement from time to time. While a lot of this reinforcement comes from those above them in the hierarchy, it has special meaning when the employees under them reach out to show their appreciation.
Onboarding a new employee is an exciting time for any business. While you're eager to get your new team member up and running on their tasks, you also need to ensure they understand the company culture and will mesh with your organization for the long term. That's why we asked the members of Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) the following question:
Education is a gift that remains relevant, no matter how old you get. Businesses that encourage their employees to experience new things and educate themselves stand to benefit from the new insights their workforce will come up with as a result.
