Enriching Business Culture
Melanie Wertzberger is the founder of Shaka, a business built based on her experiences as an employee that wanted more opportunities to connect and build a network and friendships at work but her employer didn't offer an employee-first culture. Melanie is a Cedar Rapids native who ventured off to Kansas State University to gain her degree in Finance and later the University of California, Irvine to earn her Master's in Innovation & Entrepreneurship. When she isn't working, Melanie enjoys playing sand volleyball, pickleball and is currently working towards the sommelier certification.
What is Shaka:
For business leaders who are challenged with building a great culture for their distributed workforce, Shaka offers software and services that enable employees to connect for regular coffee chats with new colleagues, launch team-based challenges that foster camaraderie and well-being, and build communities within their workplace based on common interests.
