Temptation Trivia 

In July of 1973 actor and martial arts master Lee Jun Fan died at the age of 32 of a cerebral edema. 


What name was he better known by, and what was the name of his son, who also died at the unusually young age of 28? 


If you know the answer, call your local branch office.  The first person in each market to call with the correct answer will get treats delivered!  


(Don't hesitate to call if you know the answer, even if you think there was probably already a winner in your market.  Last month 2 offices did not have any winners!) 


Last issue answer: The name of the first manned U.S. space station was Skylab.  The first manned space station ever was Russia's Salyut 1, which was launched in 1971.

Web Site Update...     
Flex-Staff has just completed a major update of our website.  This update provides many improvements over the previous version of the site that will make it an even more valuable tool for clients, employees, and job seekers.  In addition to being more visually pleasing, the new layout is easier to navigate, more customizable, and more mobile friendly.  
Some of the new features incorporated in the updated site are a listing of our "hot jobs", direct Facebook feed, testimonials from client companies, and easier access to things like our online application, client and employee web portals, and the job order submittal form.

Building a Winning Team...   
Building a winning team requires more than just hiring a bunch of talented people.  
It means hiring people who will work well together. 
It means developing a shared vision and commitment. 
It means physically bringing people together in formal group meetings for open discussion of broad-based issues. 
It means encouraging positive, informal interactions between group members. 
It means installing a "winning" attitude throughout the organization. 
It means watching for and quickly trying to reverse teambuilding problems such as jealousy, cynicism, and defensive behavior.
