  • unintentional errors, inefficiency, or waste;
  • mismanagement;
  • loss of consumer confidence and market share;
  • erroneous reporting of information;
  • failure of the business to meet and certainly exceed management objectives;
  • failure to follow management decisions and policies;

Create a Comfortable Work Environment – Make Your Employees WANT to Come to Work

Glassdoor reports that “…nearly 3 in 5 (57%) people reporting benefits and perks being among their top considerations before accepting a job...”


As you go into the New Year, consider adding some Free (or nearly Free) benefits to your Total Compensation Package.  Some benefits may seem insignificant but may be the difference between an Employee accepting your offer and the offer from the Company up the street.  Millennials and Generation Z especially want to work for an Employer that cares about these “little things”.


The Presentation will discuss:

  • Cubicles, Offices, Remote Workers
  • Flex Hours, Compressed Workweeks
  • Desktops, Laptops, multiple Monitors
  • Desks – Standing, Treadmills, Bouncy Balls (not a misprint)
  • Do you have to have Meetings in a Room? Why not go for a walk?
  • Communication! Why? Idea Flow, Value
  • Personality Tests – if you do them, use them
  • Managers vs Leaders – know the difference – this could KILL your Company
  • Unlimited PTO – don’t be afraid
  • Attire Policies
  • Fun
  • Free Stuff
