In SD-MN recruitment rivalry, S.D. gaining ‘traction’

TSP Inc. signed up for EOS coaching with Taets at about the same time as SDN. TSP CEO Jared Nesje points to the accountability of the process and Taets, which have propelled them forward.

'She's not afraid to tell us what we need to hear, not necessarily what we want to hear,' Nesje said. 'It makes you uncomfortable, but it moves you and motivates us to move it.'

TSP is a 90-year-old company, so processes and procedures are engrained.

'We have a room of procedural manuals. We've always been tweaking, but it was time to clean it up in a new way, and that's what EOS and Jaime motivate us to do,' Nesje said.

The Sioux Falls spirit for improvement has a magnetism for Taets. So much so that she intends to open a Sioux Falls office in the next year.

'I'm doing it because of the community culture but, as your governor points out, there are also some advantages for me to do more business in South Dakota,' she said.

SDN is a leader in providing business internet, private networking and cloud connectivity to businesses and organizations in communities such as Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Worthington, and the surrounding areas.
