Employee appreciation: A little respect goes a long way

Employee appreciation: A little respect goes a long way

With a little effort, attention and patience you can create an atmosphere where respect grows. Below are a few tips on how you can help your workplace to function at its best.

The cost of bullying is high: it can shatter confidence, inflict emotional stress, and trigger depression in its victims. If it seeps into the workplace it can get in the way of employee concentration, productivity and morale.

Recognize co-workers’ achievements and help. Offer praise to co-workers for a job well done or a simple, "thanks" if they pitched in to make your work a little easier. Show your appreciation and watch how a few simple words can improve relations and make someone's day.

Who Killed Canada Post’s Banking Study?

Who Killed Canada Post’s Banking Study?

Opinion Editorial, March 21, 2014

With its immense network stretching across the country – even in the tiniest, most remote communities - a public post office is the perfect way to deliver financial services to those who need them the most. 

Canada Post and the Conservatives want to take away door-to-door delivery and hit small businesses, charities and individuals with steep postage hikes. This will hurt people, destroy public postal service and pave the way for privatization. What other options do we have to address declines in traditional mail?

Ways you can best choose where your charitable holiday dollars go

Ways you can best choose where your charitable holiday dollars go

Showing your loved ones that you care by making a charitable gift in their name resonates with the true holiday spirit of giving. But with so many options to choose from, where do you start your search for the right charity?

Sorted by sector the Charity 100 provides a helpful overview to get started with charitable gift giving. Choose your sector and find out which charity will spend your money most effectively.

Make sure your charity of choice is registered

A good first step in choosing where to give is a visit the Canada Revenue Agency’s website (www.cra.gc.ca). Here, you can check if the organization you’re interested in is registered until the Income Tax Act, meaning it’s a recognized Canadian charity.

Make calendars more than a stocking stuffer this year

Make calendars more than a stocking stuffer this year

"This is a great way to share your commitment to conservation. Plus, the calendar may provide an inspiration for your next Canadian nature adventure!"

- Crystal Folkins, Nature Conservancy of Canada

Many of us are guilty of the impulsive calendar purchase at the pop-up mall stand over the holidays. And once the purchase is made, it’s often difficult to decide which lucky friend or family member will get to unwrap it this year. While this popular holiday gift has evolved into a rather stale tradition, here are a few ways to integrate thoughtfulness and creativity into this somewhat Plain Jane agenda.

Make this winter season a meaningful one

Make this winter season a meaningful one

Your interest in winter wildlife doesn’t have to end there. The Nature Conservancy of Canada is giving Canadians an opportunity to turn their admiration for animals like the snowy owl into a meaningful gift this holiday season.

As the leaves begin to fall and raindrops become snowflakes, it’s harder – or at least a bit less desirable – to seek outdoor activities and make the most of the winter. This frosty season, get in touch with your inner explorer and try winter birding. Throw on some extra layers (wind and water-proof), find a field guide at your local library or bookstore and head on out.
