4 Principles to Handle Prodigal Employees

Ever had a great employee leave? Most of us have. Should you ever consider rehiring a formerly great employee, what I like to call a prodigal employee?

The Real Business of Christmas

In many industries, especially in retail, the business of Christmas will make or break the entire fiscal year.  One of my great business experiences was serving five years in the headquarters of a Fortune 500 retailer with over 1,700 locations and 40,00 employees.  The six weeks from mid-November through New Years was critical for us, as it determined our annual success or failure.
