Welcome to TEA-spectives, The Employers’ Association Blog!  We provide this resource to the business community as a place to stay current on important topics related to Human Resources and the “people parts” of your organizations.  There is no shortage of information and viewpoints about maintaining a business and remaining in compliance BUT sometimes the sheer volume of information available can be daunting.  These postings will help consolidate the most important information and trends and put them in context for our region.  Feel free to give us a call at 616-698-1167 (or email us at tea@teagr.org) if you would like to talk in more detail about any of the topics that are covered within these Blog articles.
