On Tuesday, May 23, Payscout Chief Operating Officer Juan Sotelo returned to his Alma Mater at UCLA to address the Bruin Entrepreneurs, a student-driven group of future leaders, on the merits of top company cultures. Sotelo spent over two hours speaking with the budding entrepreneurs about their various business interests/ventures and the importance of strong corporate culture.
Many of the students cited culture as an important criterium for success, and Sotelo provided a framework on how to define and build culture. Sotelo drew on his extensive experience at Payscout, which has been recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations, and directly impacts company success. Payscout recently ranked #17 among medium-sized businesses on Entrepreneur’s list of Top Company Cultures for 2017.
“Juan’s advice and experience was very inspiring,” said Justin Liu, Bruin Entrepreneurs Board Member and UCLA Class of 2020. “We feel fortunate to have had the chance to learn from him.” Sotelo’s volunteerism with UCLA is only one of many recent instances of Payscout executives leading by example and dedicating their valuable time in alignment with Payscout’s Belief that, “every individual has a social responsibility to make the world a better place. “
