Astron Road Show
The trees are beginning to go from green to their crimsons, oranges, and golds. At least in Jersey they are. As the leaves begin to find their way to the ground, Astron Solutions begins to wrap up our 2008 trade show tour.

Our very last trade show exhibit for the year will be at the 2008 Virginia SHRM State Conference, which will take place on October 22nd through the 24th; exhibiting hours are held on the 22nd and 23rd only. There, Director, Client Services Paul Hart Miller and Marketing Specialist Stephen A. Lella plan on meeting and greeting with everybody. Then on November 19th, we have National Director Michael Maciekowich presenting at the PMA meeting (NY State Association of ARCs). If you have any inquiries about the meeting, please e-mail here.

Enjoy the fall and we'll see you there!

Is it possible to celebrate Halloween at work without unintentionally upsetting some employees? Some may think the answer is no. However, with a look into the tradition and understanding why some employees may have concerns, it is possible to strike a balance between having a celebratory atmosphere with professionalism. Perhaps this year, your organization can come up with a creative way of meeting this challenge!...more
