"At DPR, who we build is as important as what we build and PBC Guru helps support this mission. The PBC Guru program consistently aligns with DPR’s core values (Integrity, Enjoyment, Uniqueness and Ever Forward) and provides creative collaboration. One innovative solution has been the online discussion group where our book club members can connect socially around professional and personal development. The addition of PBC Guru to our existing reading program has exceeded our expectations; the level of customizability and their customer service is impeccable!"

Virtual Book Clubs Empower Employee Learning

Staff read and connect in their own time allowing them to develop without taking away from productive work time.

Books can be selected to meet almost any employee group's learning needs.

Reading a book is one of the best ways to deeply learn and improve capabilities.

Our virtual programs can accommodate groups from a dozen to several thousand.

Employees read new books on a regular basis allowing for ongoing growth and improved critical thinking.

Our accountability tools and the schedule of a book club keep your employees on track with reading.

Participants enjoy connecting with each other and benefit from developing a shared language.
