Ready for Spring?

Spring is the time for growth, and just as the cover says, we believe growth truly is ahead for each and every one of our Members. Starting with this issue, we’ll be using The Advantage to provide you with a “news you can use” focus on one market segment, topic or area of concern to help you build your business, strengthen your company, or optimize your professional performance. In this issue, we’re looking at safety, covering everything under the sun related to this perennial hot topic.

If you’re looking for a way to boost sales this year, you’ll enjoy our features on using safety to build your bottom line. Take a look at “Safety Sells”, as well as our profiles on “Corporate Wellness and Safety” and “The Uniform Solution”. Alongside our features, in each issue we’ll help you close the deal with our new “Toolkit” feature, a handy listing of all our Preferred Suppliers who stand ready to assist you in capturing growth.

As far as operational issues, two safety-related features this month will help you stay ahead of the game: “Gone Phishin’” provides actionable insight into data security for your company, and our laundry members won’t want to miss “Laundry List” for important news on OSHA rules as well as how-tos on handling the agency’s attention should it come your way. Member David Friday of Wilkins Linen highlights must-dos here.

Speaking of growth, we urge you to join us at Leadership 2016. Our annual conference will be held September 14 – 16 in lovely San Antonio, Texas. You’ll find more details in this month’s Conference Update – make sure you save the date now, and give our host hotel a call to reserve your room, as Riverwalk views will go fast!

Here’s to Spring, and to continued growth for your business!
