THL Refresher: How Would a Caring Family Respond?
Rightsizing, de-layering, business re-engineering, streamlining the organization…these are a few of the more current terms for the conventional business practice of eliminating jobs to improve profit.
You rarely hear anyone talk about the impact on the lives of the individuals and the family members of those laid off after sending them home with damage to their self-worth and a dramatic loss of income. Rarely do they consider the impact on those who remain in the organization.
On this podcast, we look back at Barry-Wehmiller response during the recession of 2008-2009 where many companies were laying people off. It was a time of shared sacrifice, but we came through it stronger and more dedicated to our beliefs. Just as a caring family would.

THL Refresher: Kristen Hadeed on Leading Millennials
In 2009, at the age of 20, Kristen Hadeed started Student Maid, an all-student cleaning company that grew to employ more than 400 college students in two cities. In 2021, she took the lessons learned from that experience and moved fully into leadership development.
This was our first interview with Kristen, originally from 2016, but she had a prescient insight into the causes of today's "Great Recession." She has been part of a growing generation of leaders who are helping to highlight the sense of meaning and purpose that millennials are looking for in their work.
In other words, like everybody else, they simply want to know that who they are and what they do matters.

REFRESHING podcast: fresh air + fresh thinking
As a podcast host myself, I'm pretty picky about what podcasts I listen to. In my book, the conversations on Everybody Matters are insightful and engaging, but more than that, they are encouraging.
I'd give it 10 stars if that was an option. Keep spreading the love and the word that Everybody Matters.
A terrible company
I am so sad that they keep pushing these ideas when they are really all about the money. Their management would sell their employees out to make a buck. They make it sound good, but I know from experience that they are bad people.
