Regional Employment Experiences a Slight Dip in the Month of June

Here is a closer look at the regional numbers: California added 9,800 jobs Florida added 13,500 jobs Illinois added 5,400 jobs New Jersey added 4,900 jobs New York added 4,900 jobs Texas added 23,800 jobs Broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge, the ADP Regional Employment Report measures the change in regional and state nonfarm private employment each month on a seasonally adjusted basis.

Dress Code Violations: As the temperature rises outside, dress code violations tend to increase as well. Now is a good time to remind your employees of your dress and grooming standards.

Not surprisingly, those shoppers who yearn for the oft-touted benefits of natural, home-grown fare are extending their standards to the foods they buy for their pets. Twelve years ago, that’s the niche Pet ‘n Shape® – a California-based producer of natural, healthy dog treats and chews – set out to fill.
