Dear Santa

Posted by on Dec 16, 2009 in Our Culture

My son is thrilled with the idea of Christmas. He’s only 2, but he sparkles when talking about Christmas and seeing wrapped gifts under our Christmas tree. He doesn’t even care what’s in the packages – he just wants to know there are a few there with his name on them. As a parent, I…

Posted by on May 27, 2009 in Our Culture

There’s an employee communications upside to the economic downturn. Given the recession, we’re all more focused on financial news, including corporate earnings, stock market levels, economic predictions and our 401(k) statements.
