Altrum wins Smart CEO’s Future 50 AwardsJanuary 29, 2016
On January 27th, 2016, Altrum and President Bernard Bolduc were recognized by SmartCEO for the company’s remarkable growth. Based on a combined three-year average of revenue and employee growth, Altrum was selected amongst the top 50 mid-sized companies in New York. Future 50 winners collectively generate $2.3 billion in annual revenue and employ 10,293 individuals in the Greater New York area.
Mr. Bolduc shares his insight into the main factors that helps support growth in a company:
For any businesses experiencing growth, adapting to a new environment or new ways of working is disruptive and can be taxing on many different levels of the company. To be able to absorb stress and make sure employees feel supported, it is crucial that managers have the right tools at their disposal, and most importantly, the right attitude to lead through change. Selecting a team with the qualities required to take your company to the next level now and in the future, is no easy task. My best advice: know your people well. Hard skills are easy to assess, but assessing someone’s value-fit requires a much deeper knowledge of the person. Knowing what really drives someone, how they handle difficult situations, and what their core values are, is your greatest asset in times of change and growth. – Bernard Bolduc
