As an introduction I wanted to let you know that I work with many professional organizations on 401k implementation and management. This sometimes falls in line with the responsibilities of Human Resources. I am now a member of SHRM so I could better understand the challenges of HR professionals. Please let me know if I can ever be of help or be a resource to you.

Mike, thanks for joining Corporate Leadership. Can you check out my recent post, "Are you advancing someone's future?" and give me your thoughts and best practices for growing the best from within the organization?
Sorry I did not get to meet you...I was with Einstein's for 2 great years...I was an EGM most recently. As a matter of fact, I trained Dawn K at my store. She is awesome! I have always been so passionate about recruiting and when the opprotunity to become a hospitality recruiter and I was able to take my 20 years of restaurant experience I had to take a leap of faith. I LOVE IT! My company is a national group that recruits for some of the most respected names in the industry. I have been calling Dawn every week to see how she is doing. I have a great candidate flow and I know Einstein's so well, I thought I could offer some help. Dawn did mention that you did not want to employ any outside sourcing at the moment...which I understand. I know the budgets...that's for sure! The owner of my firm has told me since my history with Einstein's that if you ever need help in any difficult to staff markets we are available at a very very competative fee! I have dealt with recruiters my whole career as a multi-unit guy and a regional guy and I feel we have a terrific level of service compared to whats out there. Thanks for listening and I am here to help and would love the chance to assist Dawn in this market or any other markets around the country. I appreciate any consideration.
Wanted to call your attention to the LeaderFISH! Summit coming up in June. I'll send you details.
Also, are you going to the Restaurant Leadership Conference this year? We have a breakfast forum and I'm speaking. Would love to see you there.
Good to hear from you! Sounds like things are going well.
Take Care and let me know about RLC.
You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
Privacy researcher Christopher Soghoian sees the landscape of government surveillance shifting beneath our feet, as an industry grows to support monitoring programs.
