A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 17: Fuller Going Public

Elmer at H. B. Fuller, 1968

"In 1968, we were on the verge of becoming a public company. Underwriters interviewed us to gather information for potential investors. They asked about our employee benefits. When I got halfway through my recitation, one of them spoke up: 'That's enough! You have so many benefits people won't want to buy your stock. They'll want a job!'"
