Tip of the Month KEEPING POSITIVE DURING THE HOLIDAYS

Usually our Decembers are filled with holiday parties and cheer, but this year is extremely different.  My heart breaks for every phone call I receive with another friend or colleague that has been laid off.  Holiday parties have become a thing of the past and it's upsetting to see billion dollar organizations not rewarding their staff (or what is left of their employee roster) with a celebration that costs mere thousands.  

This Tip of the Month is just a reminder to all the CEOs, Presidents and Founders to not forget what is important.  Giving their employees a reason to celebrate and move forward in to 2009 with a productive and appreciative attitude can make a difference.  Don't forget that a happy employee is a loyal one.  Despite the current economy and turmoil, let it go for an evening and find a reason to party.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
