The old saying goes, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” In some respects this is only half-true, but the half that is true should not be overlooked. Continue reading
Many people spend more time at work than they do with their families, and it is also common for some to work more than they sleep.
Knowing this, it is important that your workplace is safe and comfortable, not only in terms of the physical environment, but also the emotional one. While it may not be possible to have a perfect workplace, the last thing anyone needs is to have one where people are being harassed.

One of the many great things about our country is that there are so many opportunities to volunteer and help others. Additionally, there are programs designed to help us. While many argue that helping another is a way of helping oneself (and we don’t disagree) we want to highlight two amazing programs the United States has that help us promote goodwill around the world and help our own young people.

When it comes to paper documents, there are stages in our work processes that prevent us from being able to file things right away. As a result, we end up dealing with large stacks of documents that need to be kept together.
This can be easily done by using Kleer-Fax’s Bundle Bands, which are Made in the USA and built to last.
