of the Year Things to Be Thankful For
a human resources management firm we are thankful to
The Federal Government. We thank you for passing
over 50 pieces of Federal legislation dealing with employment
and benefits issues for companies. Without you, life
would be less confusing and we would not have a reason
for being in business.
The United States Department of Labor. On May
23, 2004, the Department of Labor issued the final regulations
on exemptions from overtime also known as the Fair Pay
Rules. Although little was actually changed, the Fair
Pay Rules did result in confusing many business owners
which resulted in additional revenue for us.
The People Who Behave Badly. We are tremendously
grateful to the many people who continue to act
as though they have been living in a spider hole
for the last ten years and continue to harass
their co-workers by making inappropriate sexual,
racial or religious comments or making the workplace
miserable for the people they work with. Thank
you and keep up the good work –
without you, we may not be in business.
To the Companies That Thought, “It
Won’t Happen to Us” But It Did.
We appreciate your willingness to pay us more
than you would have if we put some preventative measures
in place. We are pleased with the trust you instilled
in us to get you out of the mess you put yourselves
in. But we would have rather established some preventative
measures and not had to deal with the troubles at all.
Proactive Companies. Many of you have contacted
us to assist you with developing handbooks, compensation
programs, required reporting and developing training
programs. You now have policies and procedures in place
to deal with employee issues.
Our Partners - Companies like SingleSource
Services, HR.com, Team Dynamics, Small Business Group,
FCCJ and many, many others who referred clients to us.
We are grateful that you thought of us and hope to reciprocate
in the upcoming year.
To All of The Readers of the McKenzie
Mailer - We value your support and the belief that the
Potential of People is limitless.
Most Of All To Our Clients. This has been a
breakout year for us and we appreciate the business.
We are looking forward to continuing to work with you
for our mutual benefit through the next several years.
Wishes for a Safe and Happy Holiday
and a Very Prosperous and Joyful 2005.
