$ != :) Or "Why money doesn't equal a happy workforce"
July 4, 2007 by Katy Whitton

I was speaking to a friend the other night (yes, contrary to the rumours I have one friend ) and we got onto the subject of her work. Whilst she is overworked and understaffed (like most of us), she earns a pretty decent wage and the perks are pretty good but she’s not happy. I […] … Read More »

I’ve been wandering around the internet for the past couple of hours looking at various motivational websites – quite a few of which were quite uninspiring (surely if you want to motivate people the design of your site itself should be motivating – or is that just me?!) when I came across a rather interesting […] … Read More »
