Spring Lake business benefits from student ideas | Education


SPRING LAKE — A local business is implementing ideas from a fourth-grade classroom to make sure its employees not only know the company’s core values, but have incentives to do so.

Through the design-thinking program at Grand Haven Area Public Schools, fourth graders from Lake Hills Elementary presented ideas to employees from Pliant Plastics, a local plastic fabrication company. Their problem to solve was employee retention of the company’s core values and, after a tour of the company and talking with some of the staff, the students split into five groups to come up with ideas and incentives.
