2019 Annual Ludington Golf Outing

This year, the 2019 Annual Ludington Golf Outing was held at Hemlock Golf Club in Ludington Michigan on Friday, October 4th.

2019 Leadership Summit – Featuring Author James C Hunter

WLS recently held its annual Leadership Summit at Lincoln Hills Golf Course in Ludington, MI. We invited leadership guru, James Hunter, author of The Servant, to speak to us about modern leadership styles. The event was a great success, with Jim inspiring us to focus continually on becoming more effective leaders both in our professional and personal lives. This initiated substantial dialogue amongst our leadership team on how to best adapt to the ever changing industries we support and workforce we employ, so we can continue delivering best-in-class results for the years to come.

4th Annual Office Olympics a Huge Success

For the past 4 years, Western Land Services’ Ludington, Michigan office has engaged in an Office Olympic celebration. It has become a great way for employees to get to know their co-workers and more importantly, to make a difference in the local community by contributing towards organizations that align with Western’s values.

This year, WLS decided to focus on Ludington based COVE (Communities Overcoming Violent Encounters). COVE’s mission is “to provide shelter, protection and advocacy to all victims of domestic violence and sexual assault as well as to educate the communities on the root causes of violence”. The goal of the Office Olympics is to earn as many points for your team as possible. Points can be awarded through team monetary donations, or as physical items that may be useful for the individuals in need. Points are also awarded for donating blood, collecting box tops for schools, tabs for military vets, and participating in other local charity events.

Since 2016, WLS has raised thousands of dollars, donated truckloads of goods, and given hundreds of pints of blood, all while having fun! WLS wants to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Spring Office Olympics and helped raise money to support such a great cause!
