Next year’s tournament will no longer be practically in my backyard, but in Memphis. The Firestone tournament was something my father took me to and something I’ve continued the tradition with my own kids. I just assumed it would come every year… but now it’s gone. Sort of like a certain basketball player… many just assumed he was Northeast Ohio’s. Now he is in Los Angeles.

  • Are your references really available upon request?

    Whether it’s just a formality or the final piece to the puzzle in separating yourself from another payroll or HR candidate, you’ll need references at the ready in your job hunt .

    You may notice the name seems a bit different, but the picture the same. That's right, our very own Director Staffing Jamie married her love, Jared, and was gifted a new last name: Myers. You can still reach her at jamie@willory.com. Help us wish them both congratulations!

  • Initiating Positive Change by being “Emotionally Intelligent”

    One way Willory works on our individual professional development is an internal HR policy to have each employee – new and veterans alike –examine our own communications styles and how they impact the world around us. At the center of this exercise is the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, reading and reviewing it as a group with a mentor. From all accounts, it’s been a fantastic experience helping us to understand ourselves and our communications. Each organization should consider their own professional development path, but for me, the one that includes Emotional Intelligence taught me:
