Ready, Set, Unplug

Ready, Set, Unplug

Dec 12, 2017

Unplugging from technology is easier said than done. However, it’s never more important or beneficial than during a vacation or during the holidays. The average person spends approximately 2 hours per day on social media. This translates into a total of 5 years and 4 months over a lifetime, surpassing our total amount of time spent eating and drinking, socializing, and grooming. If those statistics don’t make you want to unplug, I don’t know what does.

Crawling Out of Your Work Rut

Dec 06, 2017

We’ve all been there – a “work rut.” It’s not a technical term, but every professional knows exactly what the phrase means.

Our Wasted Resource: Paid Time Off

Our Wasted Resource: Paid Time Off

Nov 14, 2017

Women excel in countless areas, across every industry, and at every professional level. We juggle personal life, work life, and everything in between. However, there is one skill we have not yet mastered: using our vacation time. The feeling that you never seem to take any time off is an actual statistic, not just something you mull over when you’re exhausted. On top of that, the observation that men in your office seem to feel more comfortable taking time off is not just “all in your head.” It’s a fact.

We’re on the cusp of the holiday season. We’ve barely finished the leftover Halloween candy; Christmas trees are already decorated; and we’ll cram Thanksgiving in there along the way for good measure.

You May Have Noticed Some Changes...

Oct 31, 2017

We are almost a year into the launch of our network for women, The Source by BankPlus. The last twelve months have been filled with learning opportunities for those running the program. One of our biggest realizations is that professional women are juggling more than we thought and are busier than we imagined. The more educational events we hosted, the more we heard from women who wanted to attend but their schedules simply could not allow it.

When New Jobs Are No Fun

Oct 10, 2017

You’re starting a new job. Congrats! This means you are likely embarking on a newfound, improved, professional opportunity. You’ve probably received a salary increase, additional job responsibilities, and maybe a title change. There was likely an array of contributing factors enticing you to completely shake up your professional life and start this new job. However, the prospect of being the “new kid on the block” can often lead you to completely forget these aforementioned perks that once sounded so enticing. There’s no way around it-- a new job can feel completely unsettling and uncomfortable for a period of time.
