Are You Mentor Material?

Are You Mentor Material?

Remember when you were a rookie in your career? Maybe you had a mentor who gave you some key advice or that extra vote of confidence you needed when making a choice along your career path. I’m hopeful you still have a mentor, even if you’ve reached a level of success in your career. Maybe you never had a mentor, but at times sure wished you’d had someone to listen to your questions and support your career! Maybe you have years of experience and the knowledge to help someone else who is new to your industry. Are you ready to be a mentor? Are you Mentor Material?

Can Benefits Help Offset Slow Wage Growth?

Can Benefits Help Offset Slow Wage Growth?

Even if your company is in the middle of a salary freeze - as many companies are today -there may be a way to increase your “compensation”. For more than a decade, wage growth in the U.S. has been virtually non-existent according to the Economic Policy Institute. The most recent survey by the National Federation of Independent Businesses shows that 2015 may be the year when wage increases could approach three percent. However, even at that level many employees are feeling as though they are running in sand rather than getting ahead.
