a legacy of sharing
Re: "ahead of the curve: interview with Joe Andraski," Thought Leaders (January 2008)
Good to catch up with "Uncle Joe" again. You have done a good job profiling someone with an outstanding legacy of sharing info and helping others in their careers. I can't begin to recount how often he has helped me in many different ways. He never seems to be too busy as many others are when it comes to sharing info.

This is what I have been saying for years! Salary is not always what attracts people to a profession; many workers are equally interested in flexible schedules and time off.
Distribution leadership has to start thinking outside of the normal five-days-a-week, eighthours-a-day syndrome. Companies like Target have incorporated the four-day work week (with 10-hour shifts) into their schedules to improve their associates' quality of life. Our European counterparts have been doing this for years and have gotten the message in regard to balancing work and time off. What are you waiting for—collective bargaining for a union?
