Posted on Categories Blog

leadership-program-develops-more-than-leadersIt has been my honor to participate in the Leadership Durant class of 2017-2018, sponsored by the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce.  Our Leadership class consists of 20 professionals who, with their employers’ support, have dedicated themselves to becoming better leaders and citizens.

It has been an enormously rewarding experience.  It’s also been difficult, frustrating, inspirational, informative, challenging, and at times, hilarious.  Throughout the year, our class has grown personally and professionally, through challenges and activities I would never have otherwise experienced.

Is it Time for a Change?

Posted on Categories Blog

change-is-good-you-go-first“Change is good.  You go first.”  I laughed out loud when I read this sentiment on the bumper of the car ahead of me, because it speaks to something most of us feel.  While we crave change, we also cling to the familiar.

Partner with a PEO to Hand Off Payroll Headaches

Posted on Categories Blog

Partner with a PEO to hand off Payroll headachesAcross the country, in all walks of life, payday is many employees’ favorite day. That’s why, when it comes to processing payroll, it has to be correct and on time, every time.  This task costs time and money, while exposing a business to risk and liability, without producing a single dime of profit.

To the uninitiated, payroll can seem like a minefield of mistakes waiting to happen.  Just processing regular and overtime wages and correctly accruing vacation time or Paid Time Off (PTO) is a lot to handle, once your company has more than a few employees.  Add in record-keeping requirements, Wage and Hour compliance, regulatory reporting, and state, federal and local tax compliance, and processing payroll becomes a task fraught with hidden responsibilities and risks.

Developing a Marketing Culture

Marketing is not rocket science, but it does have a lot of moving parts and the potential to make your company look unprofessional, inconsistent, or just plain confusing if it’s not done well. It takes a long time to create, promote, and establish your logo, tagline, and “voice,” so it’s wise to invest in protecting these items as part of your company’s image and communications.

As one of the most easily recognized logos on the planet, the Nike “Swoosh” is a textbook example of successful brand identity. Originally founded as Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS) in 1964, the company became Nike in May of 1971. Since then, the “Just Do It” tagline and the Swoosh logo have graced countless athletic items and are among the most-recognized—and best-protected—brand properties in the world.
