The Holiday Slow Down
As we noted in the published results of our survey this week, a lot of people will take time off over the next 10 days. The office is increasingly vacant and it’s clear nobody wants to start any significant new projects or discussions until after the new year. Folks who do work next week will have lots of time to clean up the office and catch up on emails they haven’t had the time to read. Answer our poll and let us know how you’re spending the holidays.
If you have the time and want to see what we’ve been reading this week at the Workforce Institute, read on.
