A day dedicated to celebrating Happiness! Yahoo!
And it’s the first day of Spring! A double hitter! 
Make sure to share your happiness with others today 😊
“Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, quote: People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if youre fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly”.

Our newest Employee Newsletter is out and one of the great topics covered is taking charge of your performance review!  We previously highlighted “Before” and today we highlight: During
▪️It is important during your meeting that you contribute to the discussion. Talk about your year and renew your commitment to learning new skills and improving your performance. 
▪️Make sure to brag about accomplishments.
▪️Try not to get defensive if your supervisor notes areas of improvement. Ask for clarification but avoid arguments. 

Don’t forget that this is YOUR performance review which means that you need to actively participate in it so that it represents your contributions and areas of improvement as an employee.
With 24/7 programming, we don’t limit our new employee training to weekdays! 5 of our new employees attended orientation today. 
Charlene Swinton, In the middle, provided training!
Big welcome to all of the new employees!

➖Answer: I had a car accident in 1978
▪️Question: What were some of your initial obstacles?

▪️Question: What were the things or people who motivated you?
 ➖Answer: My family and God
▪️Question: How has P.G. helped?
 ➖Answer: I made many new friends and was able to get out in the community and enjoy new experiences.
▪️Question: What words of advice would you like to encourage someone who has just acquired ABI?
 ➖Answer: Don’t give up! Keep trying to work hard. You will get there eventually. You can do a lot more than you think you can.
Thank you, you’re a SURVIVOR.
