Tools for Effectively Managing and Tracking Company Culture

Culture is the defining characteristic of any company, good or bad.

Instead of viewing these ideologies as conflicting, we need to not only blend culture and strategy together, but actually depend on that synergy for operations to be optimized.

Engendering Transgenderism In The Modern Workplace

Many years ago I worked with a guy called Terry. Terry was quiet, but friendly enough, a bit of a loner, but social enough.

Everyone Is Entitled to Paid Rest and Meal Breaks, Fact or Myth?

Everyone Is Entitled to Paid Rest and Meal Breaks, Fact or Myth? I was recently reflecting on a speakerphone call I once received from a group of front of house employees asking, “Hypothetically, aren’t we entitled to a break and a lunch with pay?” Knowing that such a question is rarely “hypothetical, do” I provided the standard Department of Labor (DOL) response applicable for that particular state and...

Creating a Family Friendly Culture is not a Choice. It’s the Law!

I once boarded a corporate shuttle and happened to sit next to a manager who mentioned he was on his way to terminate an employee. When I asked why, he said he needed someone more reliable and dependable, someone who didn’t “have so many Dr. appointments and family issues”.
