It is with great enthusiasm that I am here writing today. I am so privileged to be a part of such a wonderful group of people who have such varied knowledge to share with all of us. These resources are here for the benefit of everyone, whether you are an employee or an employer.
What I intend to accomplish in these daily conversations is to share with you not only the basics of running an office from an operational standpoint, but to also take a look at the human side of business. Let´s face it — all business revolves around some amount of human contact whether it is with our clients, employees, vendors or even family.
It is important as a manager to know your employees on a deeper level than just “hello” and “goodbye” Monday through Friday. It is for this reason that I will be discussing many issues from the view of an employee.
It is my goal to inform you on a wide variety of topics including new technology in office equipment, computer networking, various telephone systems, industry specific accounting packages"?¦basically anything you would possibly want to know about setting up and running a successful office. I will also address hiring and firing procedures, drug and alcohol policies, employee benefits, safety and many other policy and personnel related issues.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you. I welcome your questions, as they will help me determine topics that should be addressed in future postings.
