“Rose-colored-glasses techniques based on fun in the workplace are simply not appropriate right now. We encourage open, honest communication. My brother and I walk the floors and respond to concerns. Two areas that mean a lot to morale are environmental and high-end projects. Our employees have achieved, in measurable ISO 14001 fashion, zero production waste going to landfill. I see evident pride in that. In high-end markets, we work for brands with the highest expectations. Delighting these customers and holding the final product in hand builds morale. The bottom line is we survived, have jobs and are thankful for that.” — dik Bolger, executive officer, Bolger | Vision Beyond Print (Minneapolis), www.bolger.com
