Join our team, customers, colleagues, partners and the industry's top leaders, May 4-6 in the city recently named No. 1 in the U.S. and No. 2 in the world! (Thank you, Conde Nast Traveler!)

Charleston, South Carolina, is a popular destination for business people and tourists alike.

We are lucky enough to have an amazing office right in the heart of the city on beautiful King Street.

Did we mention Conde Nast Traveler also just rated us the...

Compliance is complicated. I think the word gods were on to something when they started both “compliance” and “complicated” with the same 6 letters. Some might even argue “compliance” is sort of a dirty word in the business world. There’s a reason why we have HR departments, government oversight groups, compliance experts and intense compliance training programs and procedures. What compliance entails for your business is always changing, and not keeping up with it, can really rock your...

There’s a lot of sleepwalkers out there. Not the kind of sleepwalkers who go bump in the night. I’m talking about the sleepwalkers in your workplace. The folks who fumble through their day. The folks who are just there to collect a paycheck. They check in at work, but mentally, they’re checked out.

Maybe you’ve been a sleepwalker before. Maybe you work alongside one now. Either way, you know one bad apple really can spoil the bunch. Attitudes are contagious, and behaviors can be, too...

Putting out fires isn’t just a job for firefighters. In the restaurant world, a typical day is full of pop-up fires, in the figurative sense, of course. A salty customer, a no-show team member, a busier-than-usual late lunch crowd on a Tuesday, or the day someone dropped the ball and forgot to order more [insert most important menu item here]. Most of those everyday problems could be helped – or straight up avoided – with one thing: a better schedule.

Your people are real people. They...

We’ve always loved recommendations...

We all love a good recommendation. Whether it’s asking about the best place to grab a bite or a beer in a new city, finding the best photographer for your wedding or trying to find someone to fill an open position at your company, recommendations really carry a lot of weight. Sure some of those recommendations lead you astray, but when you get a great one, you remember it.

Both in our personal and...

Mobile. It’s more than a buzzword these days. It’s a way of life. Sure it’s nice to take a vacation from your phone when you’re on vacation, but for the daily grind, that sucker is by us at all times…literally. In fact, 44 percent of us have our phones on the nightstand in case someone tries to get a hold of us while we’re sleeping. * And, even when our phones aren’t ringing or vibrating, 67 percent of us are still checking it! * There’s even a term for it – phantom phone vibration syndrome...

More hours of daylight in the evening and warmer weather. In the service industry, those two signs typically point toward more foot traffic in your restaurant, so the pure mention of more employee training probably has you shaking your head and quoting YouTube phenom Sweet Brown: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

The truth is, you have to make time for training. Career development is no longer a luxury; it’s a necessity. New hire orientation, plus a few hours on the first day, won’t...
