The happy employee

Finally able to catch up on a lot of things. I found this article and most of it makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately there are a lot of companies out there that still don't get this. It's not that difficult. Move folks around, let them do something challenging and let them take training. Improved technical skills helps the employee AND the company AND the community. Flexibility and actually being treated like an adult is also really refreshing. I would like to personally add that attending conferences and involvement in other local events is also really important. It is amazing the people you will meet and new things you will learn by simply talking to people outside of the workplace. And make some time at these events to wander around and simply talk to people. You will be surprised how easy it is and how much great info you will gain. There is a lot of work to do out there. Time that people in these areas get more support so they are part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
