Using Eden, workplace teams can ensure they have the best possible experience for their employees, as well as save time and money.
When considering locations for its new office, Ogden stood out as a city with access to a large talent pool – including graduates from Weber State University. Other factors included Ogden’s high quality of life, unique atmosphere, and historic downtown.
Maryn Juergens, Eden’s VP of business development, expressed her excitement over the availability of Ogden’s high-quality workforce.
