VanderNews: April 6th

Our Latest News & Resources

We know many of you are taking a deep breath of relief after a successful Easter weekend! At the end of 2020, our CEO, William Vanderbloemen predicted that we’d see a year of increased turnover, and we’re now seeing that play out in organizations across the country.

Our Chief Operating Officer, Sutton Turner, shares some tips he learned during his work as an executive pastor and in his professional career leading businesses. While terminations and layoffs can be a daunting task, you have the opportunity to lead and love well as you face tough staff transitions. Read more here.
