What's that light?

The year 2009 was a tough one for most employers and many families. During the past year leaders focused primarily on dealing with immediate crises and concerns. As a result, given recent cost-cutting measures and high unemployment and underemployment levels, many employees are concerned about their future.

Employers need to clearly communicate what, if anything, they plan to due in connection with additional belt tightening in order to get their employees to focus on their work rather then job security issues. In addition, the year 2010 needs to be more about taking stapes designed to help create a better and more sustainable future. Employees need to see there is light at the end of the tunnel and that it's not a train.
