More Engagement in the Media

The New York Times certainly has jumped on the concept of employee engagement, even though its reporters haven’t yet figured out that there’s actually an employee engagement field emerging. A Sunday Business section article on July 6 featured Zingerman’s, a collection of food-related businesses based on the original Zingerman’s Deli in Ann Arbor, MI, which […]

The email asked: “What’s a simple and practical way to help boost your business’ productivity? Focusing on your people.” Click here for the infographic on American Express Site.

Will Pay Become a Marketing Issue?

As long predicted by the authors of this blog, the issue of minimum wages is not just a public policy issue, but a business and marketing issue.
