The great thing about a new year is the fresh start it represents. Most people reflect on the past year, what went well and perhaps things that didn’t go as planned. But with a new year comes new opportunities, a chance to look forward. Hopefully with optimism (let’s face it, the world could use more of that). While there is no question that we live in interesting times and are faced with an ample array of challenges; there are many opportunities too.
At Office Interiors, we always take some time in January to have each member of our team prepare their individual “plans” for the upcoming year. It’s an opportunity for everyone to design a personal plan that is meaningful to them, one that will help them achieve their goals. Research clearly shows that when a person commits to a personal, written plan; they significantly increase their opportunity to meet or surpass their goals.
We are also excited to launch our “Love the Way You Get Started” Project this month. An initiative undertaken on behalf of all our customers, this project will see 20 Emerging Entrepreneurs in the Maritimes each earn a package valued in excess of $10,000 through the course of 2012. With the support of some amazing Partners (Grant Thornton, Haworth, HumanScale, McInnes Cooper, NSCC, Progress, RBC & Ricoh); we will help 20 new businesses get started. Watch for more information as this Project progresses; or visit www.officeinteriors.ca for more information or send someone you know there to apply for one of these awards.
Whatever you do in 2012, I hope it is a year of good health and happiness!
President & CEO
