April 10, 20180

Now That We’ve Caught Our Breath….Is the ACA Going Away? Only time will tell if the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be long-lived, changed into something different, or ceases to be altogether.

Minimize Exposure To Hazards With Personal Protective Equipment

April 6, 20180

Become familiar with the types of PPE you may be required to use and why it is essential to your health and safety. Often times employees don’t wear  their safety equipment because it’s a nuisance to put on or because it’s bulky and uncomfortable.

But most of the time it’s just a matter of getting used to wearing …

But, practically speaking, a good leader should “empower” their management team by encouraging self-directed decision making, sharing information and coaching for performance, but…can you OVER empower a manager? Potential Train-wrecks of Empowerment: 1. What happens when you give managers too much authority to make decisions?

How Outsourcing To A PEO Grew My Golf Management Company

January 5, 20170

As a club manager in the 1990’s I faced many challenges as the head of my golf management company “Golf Resources”. I had just added 8 golf courses in Florida. I did not want to build a huge corporate office. The best choice that I have ever made professionally was to outsource my HR to a PEO firm in Florida.
