Competitive compensation. Moving away from less profitable industries toward emerging industry in markets with high growth opportunities.


Willdan is shifting its focus to energy in markets where governments and utilities are investing more in the types of programs and services that it purports to deliver. Problem is that it's an operational disaster, and lacks the leadership or industry knowledge to have a chance at being profitable in this space. C-suite is an insular "band of brothers" who prize loyalty and deference over performance/merit. Far more bluster and swagger than vision and leadership from this group. Employees are generally unhappy, see few opportunities to grow within organization. Women and minorities are underrepresented. HR department is a disgrace. Overall, a total absence of accountability from line staff to C-suite. Board is asleep at the wheel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring on industry experts and give them more direction over the company's course. Get clear about what the Willdan brand should be within the markets in which it wants to become a player. Enforce financial accountability in a more constructive/less punitive manner.
