Why is it?
Is it discrimination?
Is it a negative perception of job performance?
Is it because hiring managers prefer the less qualified?
Why is it?
Do organizational changes produce results?
I prose this question because over the course of 10 years I have been let go several times due to this.

These past few days I have been in Montreal attending the Epicure Conference!
Over the next few days I will discuss how all the wonderful experiences.
The Pan Am games have been years in the making.
News reports, articles, websites all covering the biggest sporting event in Toronto (and GTA’s (history).
But as we get closer to the beginning of the end the narrative has changed. It’s as though people finally realized the Pan Am games were happening in their Toronto not a far distant one. And that the current traffic, economic, political issues facing the GTA would only be magnified by Pan Am.
The organization I work for has made changes in how we operate during the Pan Am games. We have changed the meeting schedules to only between 10 am – 3 pm and on Fridays everyone works from home.
These practices while small will help everyone due with the extra stress from Pan Am. But only time will tell.
