Happy Labor Day everybody! In honor of the day created to celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers, I figured instead of talking about marketing, I’d share links to a few articles that I’ve read recently. They mainly relate, in some way, shape or form, to building a strong team atmosphere within your company.

The quality of the internal workforce that you build as a business leader directly and indirectly reflects and projects to the quality level of the product or service offering that you provide to your constituents.

Like it or not, every move you make as a business leader affects your product, which affects your marketing strategy – as no marketing strategy can cover up a bad product. You can’t put perfume on a pig.

No pressure.

What does this have to do with building a strong team? Remember, your team builds your brand. Your team champions your product. Your team IS your service.

10 Things Extraordinary Bosses Do For Their Employees, Inc. Magazine – This just nails it. “Top 10” list blog posts are getting old, but this one is fresh. Love it.

Why I Cheer When My Employees Leave, Chris Seper – A truly unique viewpoint. We’ve all had employees leave our company, and we’ve all likely exited our fair share as well. Seper provides great perspective and positive take-aways to a challenge any business can relate to – losing one of their own.

Three Types of Interview Questions You Should Never Ask, Mashable – Such common sense, but so true. A must read about how to get the most out of your company’s interview process.

If you’re truly enjoying Labor Day, hopefully you’re reading this on September 3. 🙂 Have a great week.
