Conscious Capitalism is all about elevating humanity through business. Our fellow Arizona Chapter President, Brian Mohr, got to experience this first hand with his visit to Televerde’s Perryville call-center. What makes this unique? Besides their intensive training, development and investment in their people, this call center is located in the Arizona Department of Corrections in Perryville. 70% of Telverde’s workforce are inmates.
