Without the people who work there, is any business much more than a building and a bank account?

You won’t have to wait long to hear people talking about how important their employees are to their business, how valued and special their staff are. But what can we do to put real meaning behind that and not just pay lip service to the idea?

I’ve just had an industry revelation.

I saw something at SPATEX that absolutely delighted me. It wasn’t one of the many new products or even one of the new exhibitors. It wasn’t on a stand at all. It was something I picked up while walking around the show and I’ve brought back home with me.
