Are you HR-ready for a zombie apocalypse?

Have your employees been acting a little slower than usual? Do they shuffle around aimlessly during the day? Are they bringing body parts for lunch? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might be in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

Don’t scream—they’ll know you are on to them. Take a deep breath and...

Andrew “’What’s This Button Do?’” Evans

I arrived into Nashville late Wednesday night and was pleasantly greeted by a smiling Kenny “Let ‘Em Work, Let ‘Em Live” Oubre. He was back in charge, driving our mode of transportation for the next 24 hours, “Ruby” the RV. I didn’t get a tour during the all-company meeting, so I spent the first four minutes running around it like a kid on Christmas, and trying every feature/switch/button that I could. Phrases such as “...

The 2011 Tour

PeopleMatter is hitting the foodservice circuit to turn employees into rock stars. Our 2011 Clock In.

Jay “Hand-Wash Only” Keeney

The day started off pretty normal, and by normal I mean I woke up. Right there the normalcy ended. I see the RV (aka, PeopleMatter Express) pull up from my hotel window and realize this is really happening. I also realize that I work for a truly unique company.

Some may wonder if renting an RV, wrapping it in advertising, driving it to Tennessee and visiting every customer along the way is worth it. After my tour of duty was...

Ross “’Did You Get That On Camera?’” Kucsera

I had the pleasure of being Road Warrior (RW) #2 on the 2011 Clock In. Rock Out. Tour. Kenny Oubre and I rolled out in the PeopleMatter Express from our Charleston World Headquarters hyper-early in the morning with 'Knoxville' plugged into our GPS. (Well, we didn't really have to use a GPS because it was pretty much one highway the entire way.)

I didn't know what to expect on the road trip, but I was ready...

Now! Now, Jane, now! The time is now for easy-to-understand scheduling stats with Part 3 of our ‘Infographics Primer.’ Dick and Jane know learning how to read is no joke… and, unless you’re a statistician, deciphering survey results is no laughing matter either. That’s why we took a nod from their playbook to simplify complex ...

The Show Might Be Over, But the Flat Smiley Fun is Just Beginning

Last week, the PeopleMatter Team took over Chicago for the 2011 NACS Show. Three days, 300 cowbells and countless C-Store good times later, we’re back in Charleston (San Francisco and Atlanta), but Flat Smiley is still out on the road.

Who is Flat Smiley?
