Congratulations to our Charter Business Small Business of the Month:
The HAYES Approach
Award Presentation/left to right: Chamber Board Chair Luanne Runge, The HAYES Approach's Derek Raucci, Carolyn Elsea, Vernon Hayes and Bob Kunkle, Award Sponsor Ken Pelanda/Charter Business, Award Recipient Leslie Hayes, Award Committee Representative Debbie Nelson/DNA Creative, and Chamber President/CEO Ben Haskew.


The Hayes Approach was launched in April 2007 by Leslie and Vernon Hayes with the vision that all organizations, regardless of size, with locations in the Southeast, would have access to customized, world-class organizational behavior support in the areas of strategic planning, leadership coaching, human resources support, and training and development.


Among their guiding principles are the beliefs that:

  • Every person is created with a purpose that they desire to fulfill, both individually and through the organizations and companies to which they belong.
  • Goals are more likely to be achieved when three core items are understood:  (1) where we are, (2) where we're going, (3) how to get there.
  • All people and organizations benefit from the guidance and encouragement of an objective third party.

If you would like someone to listen to your current organizational issues or assist you with personal clarity around your business goals, The Hayes Approach could be a beneficial part of your approach. As they are fond of saying, "Let's have a cup of coffee and you can tell us all about it." Learn more at www.thehayesapproach.com.

"GTS is a true pleasure to work with. From the sales team to operations they make our inbound and outbound shipping seamless. My team expects a quick response time, competitive pricing and savings from our service providers and GTS has combined them all for a very positive customer experience. In short, I recommend GTS as they are everything that you would expect from a freight management company who is at the top of their game and is truly customer focused."
