Six o’clock is about the time I come home from a full day of class, work and a mildly maintained social life. With a coffee in hand, I sink into my 70’s style sofa crammed against the wall of our microscopic college apartment and begin my nighttime ritual. Phone? Check. Laptop on? Check. TV on and season one of “The Office” blaring? Check. Indie rock playing from my tablet? Check. Doing homework while all of this is happening? Check. Sensory overload? Definitely check.
At the beginning of January, PCMA- the world’s largest network of Business Events Strategists- hosted its most important, influential and inspiring industry event, Convening Leaders. Each year this event brings together business events professionals from around the world. This year’s conference was held in Pittsburgh and was themed “Disrupt and Deliver,” focusing on ways to break from the old, finding new and innovative methods of planning unforgettable events.
Deadlines, projects, meetings, emails and of course daily life in general-all of that can sometimes get in the way of just saying two words to a team member or an individual we supervise; “thank you.” Those two very simple yet often underutilized words are two of the most important words a supervisor can say.
Talley Management Group, Inc. (TMG) proudly announced in December to its team of over 50 staff and growing, that it is now participating in the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) model. An employee stock ownership plan is an employee-owner program that provides a company's team with an ownership interest in the company. Through this ESOP, TMG is providing all of its employees with stock ownership, with no cost to its staff.
When many companies find themselves having to focus on staff turnover and filling vacant positions, Talley Management Group finds itself welcoming some of its former staff back.

The event serves also as a chance to say thank you to the significant others of our team-our families and support systems who tolerate the travel, late nights, and odd hours our jobs bring; their support is the cornerstone to overall success of the TMG family.

Deadlines, projects that come up at the last minute and emails that can’t go unanswered-those are just some of the reasons why employees don’t use their paid time off (PTO). With social media, email and texting, immediate responses are expected and it can often feel as if you can’t pry yourself away from your desk for some downtime to refresh. Expedia’s Annual Vacation Deprivation Study indicated that unused vacation time is up to 59%-the highest it’s been in five years and up 8% from last year. When it comes to taking a break, it’s not only up to the employee to take a rest-the employer should be just as involved.
