"Managing the financial operations of one of New England’s largest direct service providers to vulnerable populations presented a unique challenge during the pandemic. Wellspring’s Organizational Optimization approach helped our team adopt effective communication and cultural practices, which allowed us all to adjust to a shifting financial landscape together. In addition, Wellspring led the cataloging and modernizing of our team design, responsibilities, and strategy. This aligned our team around a shared vision for the future and helped empower our top performers with a clear pathway for promotion and succession. In a time of great uncertainty, Wellspring provided us with a clear roadmap toward success."
