A WORD FROM THE TOP
It’s that time when most businesses are reflecting on the year they’ve just had and planning for the year ahead. As HR consultants, we are contacted by employers when they have a “people challenge”, when they need to hire, or when they are looking to develop leadership and culture within their organizations. In 2016 we noticed a definite increase in the number of organizations looking for guidance and support in several key areas; these included conflict resolution, employee relations and leadership. All three have one common thread that determines success or failure…effective communication. Below we are featuring two Inc. articles that speak to how effective communication within an organization can be a “game changer”. Enjoy!

On another note, I personally would like to take a moment to thank all those companies and organizations who entrusted their HR needs to Vertical Bridge in 2016. We were honored to be of service and we look forward to working with our amazing clients again in 2017!

All of us at Vertical Bridge wish you and your families the best of the season and a very happy new year!

Warm regards,

Sandra Reder

President & Founder
