The board regularly reviews the science, follows government hiring standards, and is recognized by multiple psychological associations.

Just one year ago, business leaders were fighting for survival: setting up remote networks, struggling to obtain everything from PPE to laptops, adapting to constantly changing restrictions, obtaining PPP loans and other financing, and above all trying to protect the health and livelihoods of their employees. We overcame those challenges and more, both business and personal. The problems business leaders face in the second half of 2021 are small by comparison.
