决定创EF公司的原因:不能照顾到特殊需求 -> 创EF需要员工的准备工作,主要说了hiring employees with specific traits -> 公司的三点核心价值: doing goods with profit, culture, for others

When Ilaina worked in clinic, she found that patients in infertility and egg-freezing have different needs, E decided to establish Extend Fertility, which the team solely focuses on fertility conservation and emphasizes hospitality.

[Based on EH course, the importance to yield a quality customer experience is fostering a positive environment for employees] Therefore, in order to find eligible staff, Hiring employees, for example, involves interviews, discussion of real-life situations and role playing for positions.

Incorperating doing good as a part to operate a company -i.e., never take doing good as transitory- should stay true to values. What's more, considering employees is what doing good presents in company culture.
