For that reason, this week we draw inspiration from Lynsi Snyder’s top 5 quotes about leading, motivation and success!

“It is very important to me that In-N-Out Burger is a great employer because I value our Associates so much. They are the reason for our success and they deserve to enjoy coming to work, to feel appreciated and to be treated like family, which is what I consider them”

“Listen to your employees, train managers with flexibility, and provide fun perks that keep associates happy.”

“the things that I’ve been through. Need to be stronger. When you persevere, you end up developing more strength.”

"We spend a lot of time doing activities together — we have annual trips, we play sports, and every year we have several trips to my Dad's ranch, sometimes for workshops and play, sometimes just for In-N-Out family time,"
