PostSubject: How is this for a cool boss   Fri Jan 04, 2013 5:13 pm

My boss wants to be committed to his employees beyond just giving them work. He has made offers to pay for schooling, whether in the trades or otherwise, to any of the employees as one of his initiatives to help them reach their life goals. But when he asked me about mine, I told him that going to school won't really help me. What I would like to do is work towards becoming a full time pipe maker. So as of next week I am allowed to go home at lunch time on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and he is going to pay for two of those six hours. This will allow me two half days, and one full day to work on my pipes every week, while still having a sabbath on Sunday, and taking time to spend with wife and community throughout the week.

I am pretty stoked

Actually some big corporations are doing this kind of stuff as well. I am a fan of small neighborhood based stuff, but credit has to go where it is do. Many companies, are actually doing some amazing things for their employees now.

That's a wild concept rev. Still getting my brain wrapped around this one.

In any case congrats to you and your employer!

I love you


Cheers,

Wow rev!

That's almost entirely unheard of in today's corporate climate where employees are usually considered to be overhead.

Sounds like a real human being. Can you imagine what things would be like if more people were like that instead of being concerned only for the bottom dollar?

He's a keeper!

That really is cool, Rev. As I get older I often think I wouldn't mind trading some income for more time off. Kinda a "quality of life" thing.

Has this little windfall opportunity manifested itself already, Rev? Or will it take some time to schedule in?

started this week, but I have had problems turning this into time in the shop, it has been time at the hospital as you can imagine. I am still pushing hard to have three pipes finished by the end of the day tomorrow, will have two for sure. Next week I should have more time.

I considered that after I posted, but let it ride...sorry if I was insensitive. Neutral

Hope things are going as well as they can under the circumstances...
