OK Boomer, But Why Don’t You Allow a Flexible Work Schedule?

[Outraged by the title? Scroll to the bottom of this article for an explanation from a Millennial about the usage of “Ok Boomer.” Just know i Don't Mean it as attacking a generation, but a way of thinking]

Supporting Employees Through Life Changes

We all have numerous things outside of the workplace that greatly impact our lives. I wanted to share a topic that is near and dear to my heart: supporting your employees through life changes.  

Earlier this year, my mom, unfortunately, passed away. I was deeply touched by how the entire Willory team supported me through this difficult time. They showed many kind comments and thoughts with my family and supported me while I had to attend to affairs on my family's behalf.
