A happy employee is a good employee. Rewarding employees for their hard work shows that you appreciate them, which can in turn give them extra motivation to not only maintain their quality of work, but exceed it.
Whether you’re rewarding one particular employee or a group of people, a special gift or show of thanks can make a big difference.
Administrative professionals in a wide variety of industries work long and hard to make sure that their office provides the proper support it needs to succeed. Given their contributions to an organization’s wellbeing, it’s only appropriate that you show your appreciation for these important employees.
Conveniently enough, April 22 marks Administrative Professionals’ Day in the U.S., giving employers a chance to reward the office administrators, secretaries, and every other person in a position that helps to hold the office together.
Choosing to partner with a professional employer organization (PEO) is a great decision for your business. If you’re like most business owners who are considering a PEO, you have done a lot of research and have tons of questions and concerns.
Below, we’ve debunked four of the most common PEO myths to make your decision a little easier.
Did you know that January 17th has been named National Ditch Your Resolution Day? It has been reported this is the average day that most people give up on their healthy resolutions. This is an important day for us in the” Wellness World”, but it is also the average day most people give up on all of their work and personal goals too. This is the time that most people who have been working so hard since the New Year become tired and simply give up.
So how does someone go from throwing out all of the “bad” food, habits, attitudes, spending a small fortune on “good” food, gym memberships, and changing work habits to giving up merely 17 days later? Before they jump right in to making and attacking resolutions, they need to have a plan in place.
"Keeping the plates spinning," is an idiom many small businesses use to describe the way they manage their human resource responsibilities. Some outsource HR functions to various companies while some tasks are handled by an in-house team member who has many other job duties
There's no need to juggle between outsourcing tasks to multiple companies and attempting to have them work together on your behalf. Professional employee organizations, or PEOs, can help minimize the stress, time and costly resources you spend administering your HR functions by managing:

We’ve all been affected by cancer.
Each year, 12.7 million people will learn they have cancer. Cancer impacts all of our lives; our friends’ lives, our families’ lives.
What if there was something you could personally do to help?
Help Prevent Cancer
The American Cancer Society is seeking participants for a study called the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The CPS-3 study is looking to enroll adults between 30 and 65 years old who have never been diagnosed with cancer. The study won’t take up too much of your time, but will make a huge difference in cancer research.
Together we can stop cancer.

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.
