What you Give


Consider each of these benefits before joining an association. If education and training is the most important part of your membership, as it seems to be with most, find out which organizations offer training and what the cost is.

More than that though, I have decided that this program is not as helpful to me as I wish it could have been. It is not because Sharon and Armand are not wonderful — because they really are. It is just all the same things that I have heard before. (more…)

Payroll and Benefits


The payroll category is the club’s largest controllable area. Key advice includes doing a better job of matching staff levels to actual member usage levels, eliminating certain positions, hiring new employees at hourly wages that start at less than current employees in those positions, outsourcing certain functions (especially IT and human resources), not replacing a department head when they leave and doing a better job of terminating underachievers.

Team Skateboard Discusses Possible Evictees


Before I discuss the possible evictees, I have a side comment:

Something I really enjoy about Survivor are those transition moments when we’re shown quick snippets of animals, bugs, and nature in general. I think of these as Discovery Channel moments. (more…)

The program’s aim is to take these disparate elements and combine them into a single operating principle. Put simply, F.A.C.T. orients employees to the facts that govern their jobs. (more…)
