Memorial Day

While many Americans think of Memorial Day as the unofficial kickoff to summer, the holiday’s origins remind us of the significance of this three-day weekend, which is commonly filled with cookouts and trips to the beach.

In Celebration of Moms  

Mother’s Day will celebrate its 110th anniversary on this May 13, thanks to Anna Jarvis, who holds the title of “mother” of the long-standing May holiday. On May 10, 1908, Jarvis honored her late mother, Ann, with 500 white carnations sent to Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in her hometown of Grafton, West Virginia, as well as a celebration in Philadelphia where Jarvis lived at the time.

And of course, management plays a vital role in the success or failure of those teams the company is counting on. Because teams work—except when they don’t. But more about that later. How does the boss/department head pull together an effective team? The fact of the matter is that not every employee has…

The Value of Vacations

“Many entrepreneurs, executives, and self-employed people pride themselves on being too busy for vacation. They perceive it as a sign of importance and commitment,” shares Tine Thygesen, a Scandinavian entrepreneur who has adopted the opposite view. In her country, five weeks of vacation is not only the norm, it’s legally mandatory. This and other European models may cast shades of green across the U.S. workforce, where the average vacation time after five years of service is 14 days. On the flip side, the average U.S. employee takes only about half of their allotted vacation time. And of those who do…
