Economics of Work and Salvation.
Work makes us work together. It’s in this that we can show our humanity to each other, or not. Have you been at work and seen behavior that steals another person’s dignity? Think of it this way, have you seen a coworker bullied, put-upon, made to work to excess? Or, is your workplace a place where humanity thrives and the business does as well?
What makes one place of business one way, or another?
Economics of people working together, HR, employee benefits, and faith are what I write about, someone passed along this informal classroom pole. 40% of Students admitted they have witnessed broken workplaces.
Workplaces are human places first. People do stuff, solve problems and make things together. It’s all done to promote family and community, that’s what work does.
Work is Part of God’s Original Design

We Must Bring Meaning to Our Work
Matthew Kelly’s lenten video on bringing meaning to your work.
For 98% of us our work is not intrinsically meaningful. Like the work of a Cancer doctor whose work is by its nature intrinsically meaningful, most of us must bring meaning to our work.
How do you bring meaning in every moment of your workday?
Katherine Drexel, A Saints’ Work
Giving up the worlds hold on us makes it possible to see a reality seldom recognized in the daily grind. Trading the world’s promise of fame, fortune, power, honor, privilege for God’s promises means recognizing the workplace as a human place.
It means, doing things like Katherine Drexel did, it is to move your heart from doing for yourself, do doing for others. Katherine Drexel gave up Millions and look what her choice created, a link to her story of starting Xavier University and so many other good works.
What is your place of work like? What do you bring to your workplace? Comment or share your own view.
A Story About What It Takes To Get ACA Right
Once in a while, after thirty years of service to the benefits community, a question challenges me. Anyone who knows me knows, I love the detail and a challenge.
The unread 2,500 pages of ACA has been a challenge since the beginning and the question I received about it this time, made me dig for the right answer.
A friend and business owner asked, Continue reading “IRS Filing Relief Clarified”
A benefit office is supposed to make decisions for the benefit of the beneficiaries. A bus route should be concerned first for the safety of the children.
On the main road connected to my subdivision, two different school districts have bus routes running in opposite directions. The road is a two lane semi-rural, 50 MPH road. I’d add, drivers routinely move at 60 MPH or more.
Lake Orion School District buses travel southbound. Rochester Community Schools travel northbound on the very same road; it’s Adams Rd. for those interested in the particulars. In both districts, the bus stops on the road or shoulder but does not turn into the subdivision.
Lake Orion has chosen to tell bus drivers not to use the red flashing stop safety lights when picking up the children. And, by contrast, Rochester Community Schools does instruct drivers to turn on their red safety flashers. Continue reading “How is a benefit plan like a bus route?”
Take a look at the video the complexity of our healthcare system, and this is just the relationship between the owners and the insurance company! It is no wonder that it is hard to identify what the main problems are in our system or make the improvements we all want.
Allow us to help you navigate the jungle of healthcare.
We don’t get input from other countries or methods. We don’t allow “new” to permeate the way we do things. As proof, consider the venture capital “Blue Print Health” spent $2.3mm and only 17% was spent on anything “new” to help health.
It’s all new ways of financing medicine, the $2.3mm is not introducing innovative solutions to improve the health of individuals. We look to hospitals and pharma to solve the problem and they provide only solutions they can sell.
Get an up-close look at the chart by watching the video as it explains our current system, lack of a system. Read other posts on Healthcare White Paper Series.
