Having loyal customers is key to success for any business.
Think about the companies you love. Why do you keep giving them your business? Maybe their product is top-notch, but odds are that product excellence is complemented by an extraordinary customer experience.

What do you think of when you hear the word “bullying”?
A playground is likely a common visual. The screams of happy children in the background. The heartbreaking scene of a child getting pushed around by another in the foreground — not just physically, but verbally.
But bullying doesn’t just live in school hallways or the playground. Cyberbullying among young people occurs more frequently because of easy access to digital devices and social media.

Our homes are our safe places. We know the ins and outs better than anyone. Should something dangerous happen, we’d know exactly what to do and how much time we’d have to do it in.
Actually, not so much. Especially when related to fires.
You walk into the office at 8 a.m. determined to complete the day’s tasks focused and undeterred. And then all of a sudden it’s 3 p.m. and the only thing you’ve accomplished is sitting through a two-hour staff meeting and checking your email.

It’s July, friends. ALREADY.
But didn’t school just let out yesterday?
It’s amazing how quickly summer flys by. A vacation here, a few trips to the pool there, and suddenly there are fewer than 30 days before the kids are back in the classroom again. 😱

Getting all the sizes. All the money. Placing the order. It can be stressful!
But we have good news: We’ve taken the stress out of the process at WorkPlacePro. 🙌
The beginning of every year is often filled with optimism about what is to come — we create resolutions and set goals to ensure we’re successful in every facet of life and business.
In the workplace, those goals are most effective when backed by strategy, creating a plan of action, a roadmap if you will, that will get you to your destination. Creating a well-balanced vision of where you want your business to be at the end of the year is key to success. But if you don’t assess how you’re performing throughout the year, the likelihood you will detour from your plan and fall short of your goals increases.

You + 85% of America’s workforce.
Desk work is a necessary evil for millions of Americans, but sitting doesn’t have to kill you — though experts say doing it for 8 hours a day most certainly can. Increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels, not to mention the strains you put on your neck, shoulder and back muscles, are all byproducts of working for a living behind a desk.
