Jeff’s Employee Retention Blog, Tips and Advice

Forgotten Old People

My colleague began telling me about how furious his wife had gotten as a result of how she had been treated at work recently by her boss.  She is in her mid-50’s.  Apparently, her boss had asked her to help a young colleague out on a new project that had come into...
