The Extraordinary Ordinary Window Cleaner

By Shawn Boyer on Jun 25, 2020 11:12:13 AM

As I was sitting there waiting for my food at the Legal Sea Foods at Boston’s Logan International Airport in November of 2012, a man caught my eye.  He was outside on a ladder cleaning the windows of the gate next to the restaurant. As I sat there and watched him, I was mesmerized by how meticulous he was.  He was so carefully cutting into the corners of each window.

5 Steps to Reduce Your Employees Fear & Show Them How Much You Care

By Shawn Boyer on Jun 25, 2020 11:08:28 AM

Three days ago I was having lunch at the top of a mountain at a Colorado ski resort during our family’s spring break, and as we talked to our server about COVID-19 and whether the resort had talked about closing, she said her team had a meeting with her manager that morning and there were discussions that the mountain might close. She was scared to death because she didn’t know how she was going to pay rent if it did close.

Celebrate Your Favorite Hourly Worker & Give Them a Chance to Win $1,000

While most Americans with a “desk job” are being required to work from home, millions of “desk-less” hourly workers across the country are continuing to show up to work so that we have the things we still need – grocery store clerks so that we have groceries (and MAYBE even some toilet paper!), delivery drivers so that we don’t have to expose ourselves to others, plumbers to fix our leaking sinks, health care providers to take care of our sick, etc. Social distancing is not an option for them.
