It’s All About the Team

Posted on October 19, 2021 by

We have all heard the phrase, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” This aptly applies to today’s situation and, no, I am not talking about our beloved Detroit Lions! What I am referring to is the alarming lack of qualified employees. I am finding that this relates to just about everyone, everywhere.

Planning for a Transition

I hope that everyone is enjoying their spring. Though a day this time of the year in Michigan can feel like any one of the four seasons, there is nothing quite like the feel of a pleasant spring day; the colors, smells, and the newness can uplift any spirit, especially after a long winter.

Building in Uncertain Times

Posted on February 3, 2021 by

Any organization that is truly serious about growth must first make a serious commitment to consistently recruiting fresh talent into the firm. This holds true even in times of uncertainty, like the current environment we are all in. Organizations may see hiring as an area they can pull back on when times get tough, but it is important to resist this temptation.

Happy New year! At the end of most years, I ask myself - where did the year go? But not so this year. The end simply couldn’t come quick enough.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Though it has been a year like no other, as I reflect it’s clear that I have much to be grateful for. Each day I get the great pleasure of working with a terrific group of professionals.

Fall Gratitude

Posted on November 9, 2020 by

I think many Michiganders would agree that there is nothing quite like a pristine fall day in Michigan with changing colors, crisp air, and weekend football games. Well, perhaps football hasn’t been quite the same this year, but then again, many things haven’t been quite what they were in the past.

Labor Day Transitions

Posted on September 1, 2020 by

Rob Dutkiewiec
As we all know, in Michigan, the summer starts Memorial Day, and ends on Labor Day. Don’t look now, but Labor Day is right around the corner.  As we reflect on the true meaning of Labor Day, I think all workers should be proud of their accomplishments this year.

Time to Retrench & Recharge

Posted on July 27, 2020 by

Rob Dutkiewiec
It is hard to believe, but we are four months into the Covid crisis. To me, it feels like four years. Though no one knows when this will pass, it seems safe to say that we are in this for the long haul. What continues to echo in my head is the proverbial statement “the strong shall survive”.

Happy 4th of July!

Rob Dutkiewiec
It is hard to believe that this favorite American holiday, celebrating fireworks and cookouts with family and friends, is upon us already. Though I don’t have any big plans I am looking forward to a chance to unplug over the three-day weekend. As burnout is being cited as one of the top challenges for employees in the midst of the Covid pandemic, we are all trying to find time to recharge.

COVID-19 has been impacting us all in different ways. Our new normal has been a world away from the office and the face to face interactions with clients and teammates. We are constantly reminded that our team is strong, resilient, flexible, and creative.

I think it is safe to say that, in our lifetime, we have never seen anything quite like this before. The Coronavirus has created anxiety as the health and safety of our loved ones weigh heavily on our minds, along with uncertainty in the economy.
