About Veel Hoeden

Veel Hoeden is a Dutch phrase meaning “many hats”, something that describes well the role we play for many of our clients.  As a member of the historically Dutch community of Pella, it’s also a nod to our hometown heritage.

Whether it be helping business owners develop their leadership capacity, new supervisors gain the skills they’ll need to manage and lead others, or companies create compelling hiring and onboarding processes, we’re happy to wear many hats to help them be successful.
