Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a special day to honor and cherish the special bond of love that you and your mother share. A mother does so much for her children, the least one can do is acknowledge her hard work and her selfless love for you.

Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.

As Agatha Christie once said   "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."
Remember, the best gift you can give your mother is your undevoted time.

Happy Mother’s Day
from your friends and extended family at

Who's Your Beneficiary?
You should review your beneficiary designations at least annually and after any major life event
Your retirement account is about you and it’s for you – your nest egg to enjoy in your retirement years. After working hard all those years and saving diligently, your retirement account will be there to ensure that you live comfortably in your retirement years. But unexpected things do happen. If you aren’t around to enjoy the fruits of your labor, who will inherit the balance of your retirement account? If you have a valid beneficiary designation in place, then your beneficiary will inherit. If not, your account will be distributed according to the rules of your plan. If you haven’t reviewed your beneficiary designations in a while or if you never specified your beneficiaries, now is a great time to do so!
Don’t Blink!
 You likely designated your beneficiaries when you first signed up for your retirement plan. That may have been last year or a decade ago. Either way, your life may have changed dramatically since that time. Maybe you got married or divorced? New baby? Congratulations! Perhaps your company’s plan merged into a new plan and your old beneficiary designations did not carry over. Given the speed of change, it’s worth taking a look at your current beneficiaries.
It only takes a moment to make sure that your beneficiary designations are up to date. You can do so by logging in to your account at and then selecting “Personal Profile” and “Beneficiaries”.
Married? Remember, if you are married and would like to designate someone other than your spouse as a primary beneficiary, federal law requires that you obtain your spouse’s notarized consent to this alternate designation. If you married after designating your current beneficiaries, be sure to review your current beneficiary designation. If your spouse has not consented to your designation by providing their notarized signature, then your current beneficiary designation is no longer valid.

On October 9th Professional Employer Resources gathered for their annual team building event.  P.E.R values the skills and talents of every employee.  We encourage employers to conduct an analysis of cost incurred from employee turnover verses costs in recognition and team building programs.  You may find some significant savings and increase in productivity when investing in these motivational events.   Team building promotes better communication among employees and gets employees to refocus on their career path.
Employees that are recognized for their hard work tend to be more productive and bring their creative ideas to the front lines.  Most importantly, employees that are happy where they work exude positive energy and are highly motivated which results in outstanding performance. Let’s face it, most employers want team players with a career focus mind.  What are you doing to communicate that to your staff?

Here’s a glimpse into P.E.R’s 2012 team building event.  Enjoy!
