G.Neil President Ranks Among Top 10 of 50 Leading Women-Led Businesses in Florida

The Center for Leadership at Florida International University, partnering with The Commonwealth Institute South Florida, recently surveyed Florida’s female business leaders to gain a better understanding of how they achieved success as senior executives and how they balance their professional and personal lives. The report focused on a variety of issues, such as business strategies, business challenges, career history, personal motivation and leadership style.

We're proud to announce that Susan Drenning, President of Everglades Direct (which owns the G.Neil brand) came in at Number 9 on the list — and was featured in the Business section of the Sun-Sentinel on June 14, 2007.

Congratulations, Susan!

Misleading Poster Sales Pitches - More Businesses Being Duped!

Remember that posting from a couple of months ago, Beware of Deceptive Claims? Well, those deceptive claims are rearing their ugly heads again. The Associated Press reported about a Lansing, Michigan company called the Mandatory Poster Agency that sent out stern warnings to restaurants and convenience stores to convince them they needed to display posters on proper hand-washing or face fines. You can read the article here: Businesses Bilked by Poster Company.

Please keep this in mind, with the new minimum wage law — we anticipate there will be an onslaught of misleading marketing offers from poster companies to businesses of all sizes. You have a number of choices for purchasing your updated Federal Labor Law poster. Many companies have similar sounding names making it difficult to know who's-who and to verify their quality and service standards. Before you buy from any company you don't know through first-hand experience,you should take the following steps:
  • Verify whether posters meet exact agency specifications for font size, poster size, color and layout.

  • Confirm with the seller that the people who monitor changes are labor law experts and attorneys qualified to interpret the posting requirements and ensure any changes are properly communicated.

  • Check with the Better Business Bureau to ensure the seller has a satisfactory rating or if they have a rating at all. You should investigate further any business that is without a rating as it may be an indication that they don't have a proven track record.
When you are dealing with Compliance issues, you don't want to take any chances — you should demand unimpeachable service and uncompromised standards.
