09 11 2017

November 09, 2017 - Sioux Falls, SD, November 08, 2017 - Sioux Falls Atheists announced their anti-religion indoctrination billboard campaign to help raise awareness for what they describe as "child mental mutilation" across America. In light of an 11 year old girl from India who just won a $25,000 award as "America's Top Young Scientist", she would never have been able to do this if she believed the religious teachings that run contrary to scientific facts.Five static billboards have been erected on West 12th, 2 digital boards on South Cliff Ave, and 1 digital billboard Minnesota Ave., with another 5 more static billboards to be erected along Minnesota Avenue on November 20th, 2017.

Age is Just a Number: Engage Employees by Career Stage, Too

08 11 2017

MINNEAPOLIS--Employers often view employee engagement through a generational lens, but new research indicates the need to enlarge their field of vision. The study, conducted by SMS Research Advisors and commissioned by Padilla, one of the top 10 independent public relations and communications firms in the U.S., found that two in five employees are completely disengaged from their employer. What’s more, that disengagement cuts across generations as well as job title. “Earning and maintaining employee engagement affects all aspects of business success, yet it is often overlooked by employers as a ‘nice to have,’” said Julie McCracken, senior director in Padilla’s Employee Engagement group. “We’ve known for some time that a one-size-fits-all approach to forging stronger connections doesn’t work. The Engage by Stage research findings also tell us that improving engagement levels is not as simple as tailoring approaches by generation or even by decade.” The research offers...
