The Difference

Image courtesy of: seekingthomas.It’s hard to believe we’re closing in on the Holidays which should be a time of good will and cheer. Instead, due to the election, Obamacare, greed and poor business/Union decisions– many people are focusing on the possibility of massive layoffs and the reduction of full-time employment with benefits.

In past years, employees looked forward to raises, bonuses, stock options, longevity pay and possibly, improved benefits. It’s been a decade or more since many have seen any of those positive signs.

In fact for some- the threat of impending layoffs and the corporate chant of “just be thankful you have a job” has been the yearly gift. The message ensures compliance for another year and the morale erodes. The board awards themselves, the CEO and the upper echelons of management bonuses or a raise and the employees receive zilch.

Where’s the value placed on your employees?

The difference between a great and mediocre company is how those businesses treat their employees and customers in good times and bad.
