BIC Graphic Introduces Students to the Impact of Promotional Products at Stavros Institute's Enterprise Village
Local students learned about promotional product production and distribution as employees of the BIC Graphic storefront at Stavros Institute's Enterprise Village recently. The promo supplier has participated in the program for more than 20 years.
Stavros Institute's Enterprise Village is a self-contained economic education program that provides a hands-on learning experience for students. After learning economic education objectives at their schools, students visit Enterprise Village during their business day and work in one of more than 20 businesses, receive paychecks, take breaks and make purchases in business-sponsored storefronts like BIC Graphic NA.
The daughter of BIC Graphic's IT director of infrastructure Michael Moore recently participated in the program and was "hired" as a manager at the BIC Graphic NA storefront. Emersyn More prepared for her "job" during her math block leading up to her Enterprise Village visit.
"Being the BIC Graphic manager was difficult, but a fun challenge," Moore said. "I applied to work at BIC Graphic because, when I visited in real life, it was a good experience, so I felt I could help my group and guide them during the day. A leader is someone who guides others and does not boss them around."
Moore was most proud of the way she solved problems for her customers and employees. She plans to use this experience as she strives to be a manager, the President or a famous singer when she grows up.
BIC Graphic NA has donated more than $700,000, including $300,000 in product, to Enterprise Village since 1998. Several current BIC Graphic NA employees participated in the program during their middle school years, or have children participating in Enterprise Village this year.
