Make Waves at Your Job

Some people will read that headline and think, "I don't want to make any waves at work. I like to keep my head down and just do my job." But at GL group, we've found that people who make waves stand out positively and get things done. We have a culture of empowerment and we want employees in all areas of the business to act and think and act like an owner. In fact, we specifically ask them to do so. We are not looking for someone to come in and perform a "job" but rather, someone to get involv...

Why We Get Back to Applicants in 48-Hours, Not 4 Weeks

Anyone who's ever interviewed for a job knows the routine: You send in your resume and then wait to hear back about an interview.

But at GL group, it's common to walk through the buildings and see babies napping while Dad is on a confer...

But at GL group, we have the exact opposite approach. We practice open book management, and we mean exactly what we say – the books are literally ...

Our Employees Drive Our Success

When I look at my roles and responsibilities as CEO of GL group, I don't only think in terms of the 220 people directly employed here. The number I think of is closer to 850- our employees and all of their families. When we make a decision, we think about how it will affect the company. I want to make sure that no one at GL group has to go home and tell their family they're out of a job because of a decision I made. We want our employees to feel secure, happy, and fulfilled in their roles at GL ...
