“Bellevue University’s focus on helping learners earn degrees while balancing their work schedules aligns with NFM’s strategy of investing in growth and development of our employees.”
Nebraska Furniture Mart is one of the largest volume furniture retailers in the country, with large stores in major cities in the middle of the country. They are a customer-driven organization that makes sure their employees are knowledgeable and responsive.
“NFM and Bellevue University are a perfect match,” according to Megan Berry Barlow, Chief Human Resources Officer for Nebraska Furniture Mart. “Our focus on customers is relentless. Our motto is: By having the greatest selection and price, we improve people’s lifestyles. Bellevue University’s focus on helping individual learners earn a degree on their time and on their budget aligns with NFM’s philosophy.”
The proof is in the many examples Berry Barlow shares. “We love success stories at NFM. With our long-standing partnership with Bellevue University, we have so many great success stories about our people being able to earn their degrees, starting with our CEO and President, Tony Boldt, who began his career at NFM as a warehouse worker.
“At NFM we value real-world, practical learning and want our workforce to excel in work and in life. We want to cultivate a workforce that craves continual learning and development in an effort to innovate and grow. Bellevue University understands this need for students to be productive members of their organizations and help drive business success.”
