Just another Friday at ABG

Happy Friday everyone. 🙂 How was your week? Ours was great! Let’s get into this week’s Just another Friday at ABG Capital blog post! On the blog, we featured a great article that talked about employees and retirement plans. Do you use your company’s retirement plan as an incentive for prospective hires? This article is advising that you do. More and more people are looking for jobs that offer the kind of “exit strategy” they desire. Having a well-defined retirement plan makes your employees want to stay loyal to your company and it also brings a sense of ease knowing that there is a plan for their future. Check out this article and make sure you’re doing everything you can to offer the best retirement plan in the industry!

Next week on the blog, we’ll have an article that talks about how instituting good employee wellness programs can really be beneficial for your business as a whole. This is one thing that we value very much at ABG Capital and starting last year we decided to have Tend to You Breaks at 10 and 2. These breaks are designed to make everyone get up from their desk twice a day and go outside for a walk or toss the football around. It’s great for increasing productivity and boosting employee morale. It also helps with those employees who can’t wait for our quarterly sporting events!

In the office this week, we had a Lunch & Learn that was presented by our Office Administrator, Sara Warhold. Sara attended a workshop on Managing Multiple Projects and Tasks a few weeks ago and she shared some of the great tips with our staff. One of the tips she brought back with her was to “eat the frog”. Now before you go jumping to conclusions, let me explain this a little further. “Eating the frog” simply means doing the task that you’re dreading the most. It’s best to do this first thing in the morning so you get it out of the way. This method will give you a great sense of self-fulfillment and it will ultimately reduce your stress level. Next time you’re asked to do that awful project, just remember one thing: EAT THAT FROG FOR BREAKFAST!

Thanks for reading this Just another Friday at ABG Capital and have a great weekend!
