Here I go again! I am letting my current work enviornment direct my blog inspirations. In the past few weeks, I have been hearing a lot about layoffs, solidarity pacts and staff morale being low in many companies across Italy. This made me read up on layoffs and the environment that surrounds them.
I have chosen an article that I think can be useful for those who remain in the companies that are undergoing a restructuring due to redundancies. We instinctively speak about the people who are let go but rarely about the ones that stay.
With Easter being just around the corner, I planned this blog post in honor of this joyous spring feast. I remember wearing my crochet white knee-high socks, floral-printed dress and shiny ballerinas on Easter Sunday. No matter how cold it was in Montreal that spring, this was my outfit.
