Hausbeck Pickles & Peppers Clarifies its Purpose – Consciously!
There’s got to be more to the pickle business than just pickles. And the company’s President, Tim Hausbeck knew that as he invited his E-Team to join him at the Conscious Capitalism of the Great Lakes Bay’s introductory event at SVSU in May 2018. At the event they learned about Conscious Capitalism and the concept of lifting humanity through business. Hausbeck Pickles for three generations has had a purpose and a strong moral compass. The company had a vision and mission like most companies, but after what they heard about Conscious Capitalism, the vision and mission seemed one-dimensional. Tim and his team knew they needed to better define the company’s higher purpose – one of the four tenets of Conscious Capitalism.
