Merry Christmas from Schaffer Associates
In the early days of 2018, our industry knew the year ahead would be one of opportunity and challenge. We anticipated an economy that would continue to strengthen, and strengthen it did. It helped grow our industry in 2018 in ways we haven’t seen since before the Great Recession. But this runaway-train economy also brought less available talent, more empty positions, and organizational growing pains across all sectors. All in all, 2018 played out as we expected it would, which is a largely positive development for the industry as a whole.
For those of us at Schaffer Associates, 2018 was another year in which the Lord graciously blessed us far beyond what we imagined. We want to thank Him for His goodness and provision through a year that brought new challenges – and new opportunities – to our firm. We also want to thank all of you – our former, current, new, and potential clients – for being a part of this successful year. The relationships we have throughout this industry are our top priority and we look forward to continuing to work with all of you in 2019.
As we look with anticipation toward celebrating with family next week, all of us at Schaffer Associates would like to wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We pray that the Lord would bless you with peace and joy as we reflect on the perfect gift of His Son. He is truly the reason we celebrate!
God bless you all this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
