Welcome to ECG's monthly newsletter, providing insights and advice about all things HR!
As we enter this Thanksgiving Holiday season, it is time for us all to reflect how fortunate we are to be surrounded by family and friends. Many of our clients, vendors and network of referral sources have become our friends, and for this, we are very grateful.
Moreover, and on a personal note, I am blessed to be surrounded by a team of truly professional, considerate and experienced human resources professionals; Patricia Ceballos, Clark Souers, Anita Goldin and Eric Arndt. Thank you to our team for their hard work, professionalism and dedication to ECG.
Together, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
