the One You're With
Amy Wright, SHRM-SCP, SPHR
It’s February and love is in the air. Everything
seems to be about hearts this month. Valentine’s
Day is February 14th. National Go Red For Women Day
is February 5th (in support of heart disease awareness
for women). Stores are filled with valentine candy
hearts, chocolates and cards. And most of us will
take the opportunity to recognize at least one love
in our life later this month.
But what about your job? Do you love your job?
love my job and I love where I work. I can say
that with honesty and authenticity, and
I hope everyone
else reading this can say the same. Life is too
dang short to spend 8 or more hours a day at
a place that
doesn’t give you joy and give you the opportunity
to make a difference.
I also love the fact that I am part of a really
large group of people who are dedicated to
Indiana and central Indiana workplaces better
for everyone. That is a whole lot of love and
and to all of you, I say thank you.
go out and share some love this month. Happy Valentine’s
