GUILTY, in the court of public opinion!

While we may be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, we have a higher burden in the court of public opinion. Social media plays a central role in how we form our opinions on the news and on each other.

It's time you hire more people with a disability

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month which gives us a chance to celebrate companies that employ people with disabilities and embrace diversity and inclusion practices, and raise awareness for those companies that don’t.  Services to Enhance Potential (STEP) and other Community Rehabilitation Organizations, are preparing individuals with developmental disabilities for these opportunities.  Every day these organizations work with thousands of individuals with disabilities helping prepare them for work opportunities.  Additionally, efforts are taken to work with the potential employer to assure the individual’s transition to the work place is a smooth one and the employer needs continue to be met.

How safe is our nation’s food supply?

Equifax and the SEC are today’s current cyber-disturbance.  But what about our food supply.  Congress, in 2010, enacted the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The law drastically updates how our food is regulated. It creates guidelines for food manufacturers and processors to follow in the processing, producing and handling of food, from harvesting to processing, warehousing and distribution. The federal government however, is still trying to figure out how to enforce the FSMA. The most recent rules focus on preventing the intentional adulteration of food in the supply chain.

But today's ribbon cutting is more than just a chance to bring together the city leaders who helped bring this project together, it is our chance to celebrate Detroit.

As CEO, its' time for you to lean in, speak up and speak out!

Companies and CEOs today have the power to influence the public's agenda. Whether it is banning together to advance an agenda as part of a trade association or speaking up and speaking out on their own, employees and customers today are demanding the companies they work for or do business with share their corporate values, become more aware of current events and become more vocal on societal issues.

When do CEOs make their personal views public?

If speaking up results in public backlash, the business leader should be prepared to deal with the issue and work with their PR and legal team to get in front of it. Whether it is holding a news conference, publishing an op ed or posting a Tweet. Words do matter and they should be communicated carefully.
