“If you are wrought with financial stress and self-inflicted misfortune, you are a less effective employee. Your employer not only should be concerned with how you handle their financial resources, but how your mishandling of your own personal financial resources affects you as a human resource.” – Peter Dunn, speaker and radio host
In my work with human resources professionals and business owners, I have the opportunity to explore many of the issues that surface in the hiring process. Most recently, a discussion centered around "Ban the Box." Does your company have “ban the box” on its application? If you’re unfamiliar with the term, it’s the check box that asks, “Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offense?” I am curious to know how you feel about this relatively new policy.
Is your office kitchen area a savory or sour spot? Are smells emanating from the fridge or microwave that are turning your stomach? Do you constantly find some of your items missing, or have to deal with crumbs and dirty dishes that weren’t yours?
I once saw a coffee mug that said, “Lunch is for wimps.” Not so, I thought. Lunch is an important part of a productive work day. It’s an opportunity to recharge, connect with a coworker, or get some physical activity into your day.
