S4. Ep3: New Jobs In June, Adjusting to the Remote Life, And How Employees Are Bringing More To The Bargaining Table

Straight From The Hip with Courtney Jones

The kids may be out of school, but as more of the world opens up and people start outdoor activities, its back to work for all those who are adulting out there. 

The biggest question on everyone’s mind seems to be: In or Out of The Office?

Grab that cup of joe and get ready feisty kittens!

In Today’s Episode We’ll Look At:

  • Hybrid & Remote Work: What options employers can utilize and setting the tone for effective implementation.
  • The economy was jumping in June, but not everyone’s ready to hop back to the cubicle. The bargaining power employees are taking back to the office.
  • Plus: Updates, news, and a little something for those who deal with customers on a daily basis and know how exhausted your mental can be at the end of the day. It’s my birthday weekend and you get the gift!

Hi! I’m Courtney Jones, an expert in customer experience, and a champion of white glove, top notch client service for the past 30 years.
I’m a speaker, former spoken word performer, coach, and host/producer of the Straight From the Hip with Courtney Podcast.

In my spare time I love spending time with the ‘grands and cooking gooey desserts that are so good they’re almost sinful!
Tall since childhood, a fact that used to really embarrass me, I’ve become very comfortable standing out in a crowd. Even experiencing personal & business hardships and obstacles, I’ve never been ashamed to share my story.

Used to my advantage when coaching others on how to turn challenges to triumphs.🎉

Helping clients use a lifetime of acquired experience to go from victim to vixen in their personal life story is awesomely rewarding!

Got time for coffee and a chat on how I can contribute to you standing out from your peers using authentic and powerful personal branding techniques and strategies?
