If my mom only knew.
When I was younger, my parents would encourage (mandate) that I help them in the family garden out back. However, that really cut into my wiffle ball playing/tree-climbing/insect-torturing summertime. I came up with every excuse in the book to get out of it. I was told it was good exercise and that the vegetables we grew were healthier and better for me than anything we bought at the grocery store. I didn’t care. I was a kid. I hated vegetables.
Now we appear to have come full circle. Not only are gardens making appearances in the suburbs, they’re also starting to dot cityscapes and in a surprising twist, corporate campuses.

- Losing good employees to competitors.
- A cranky work environment.
- Excessive workplace injuries.
- Out-of-control healthcare costs.
- Ridiculously high unemployment insurance costs.

Once you’ve hired your employees, it’s important to keep them happy on the team. In addition to the cost benefits of employment continuity, there are also morale and productivity benefits.

In a former life I was a general manager. A large part of my position was screening and interviewing potential new hires. This important yet time-consuming process included:
- Phone screening
- Background checks
- Scheduling initial interviews
- Clearing my schedule to make time for interviews
- Conducting interviews
...you get my point.
