The Realities of Virtual Teams

  We don’t share an actual water cooler at JustWrite Solutions, but we still find ways to connect with our colleagues; we’re just a little more creative. And it appears we’re not alone.

It could be the growing use of abbreviations in texting and emails, the character limits on twitter, the incredible number of […]

The Human Touch

Thanks to Tim Kennedy, Associate Vice President, HUB Philanthropic Solutions, for today’s blog.         Recently, I had to purchase a new phone.
