EVENTS AT THE COMMONS

We host over 300 events annually at The Commons on Champa! Join the list and be the first to get invited.

Success is about your people, and it takes more than competitive pay and a good benefits package to win over candidates.

You want a productive workforce and a team with a vested interest in the success of your business. Speed of execution is your biggest competitive advantage. When your workforce is aligned with your mission, your business moves further, faster.

At the same time as a business owner, complying with the ever-growing list of federal and state regulations can be a daunting responsibility and leave you exposed to costly fines, penalties, and unnecessary stress.

Join us for an impactful workshop on how to build a strong foundation with key elements to maximize your talent and minimize your risk as a business owner, regardless of where you are in the business life cycle!  Lunch will be provided as well as a giveaway of a very special book which will serve as a manual for business leaders to help their teams come together around a compelling vision, comprehensive strategy, and a relentless implementation plan that creates a smart and healthy organization!
