Culture Corner: Manifesting Your Future
What do you want to accomplish in 2023? Personal and professional development is an important part of our individual growth, but if we’re not intentional about making it happen, opportunities (big and small) might pass us by.

Based on history, this dichotomous thinking about safety versus productivity is already prevalent and doesn’t require much effort to perpetuate it. For decades, workers in many industries were encouraged to get the job done at any cost. That mindset is still present in many older workers and labor-intensive industries. Promotions and raises were based on productivity, not safety. Safety only got consideration if it took the worker out of the workplace. Being excellent at safety might have had personal advantages, but the organization did not reward it. Workers were viewed as replicable cogs in the organizational gears and not as valuable assets.
