Faces of Sacramento

Via Consulting Group is thrilled to be featured as part of Sacramento Magazine‘s “Faces of Sacramento”! We are honored to have worked alongside some of our region’s best & brightest organizations to grow & develop their people this year.

In an uncertain economy, an engaged and high-performing workforce can be a strategic differentiator for companies of all sizes. CEO’s, educators and public sector leaders agree: an intentional, focused investment in professional development yields some of the greatest returns for companies in both the short- and long-term.

If you or your organization wants to start your strategic planning for your 2018 leadership programs, prioritize workforce & talent management, tackle gender pay equity, or begin professional coaching, we would love to help you think through your goals. Let’s talk!
