expectations beware

HR & Work Simply-Engineered

old plow imageIt turns out we spend a lot of our lives running around trying to do what others expect of us. It is essentially how we're reared.

telegraph imageYour employees can walk into any Starbucks and get their very own special patent-able beverage...because that's the way they want it.

it's not yours

Work and HR Simply-Engineered

fire hydrant imageThis is much less of a blog post than a public service announcement. Thank you to Lars Schmidt and Hootsuite for inspiring it. Sure, it's a rant. But you've grown to expect that.
