A Passion for Safety Every Day

June is National Safety Month where we focus on reducing the leading causes of injury at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. According to the National Safety Council, nearly 11 American workers die each day on the job. I find these statistics appalling and unacceptable.

Even one serious injury on the job is one too many. When you consider the pain and suffering that a co-worker may experience and the impact on families, friends and the workplace, the more we look out for one another, the better off we will be.

At PSEG Fossil, we have a passion for safety and it shows.

Selfie, Professional Headshot or “The Silhouette”

We have all seen selfies. They’re everywhere, and they range from the humorous to the “I wish I could unsee that.”  Selfies do have their place in casual communication: Facebook, texts, and emails to friends. But that place is not on a resume, LinkedIn profile picture, or any other place you want to look professional. A selfie as your electronic representation is worth exactly what you paid.

Using “The Silhouette” on LinkedIn or “The Egg” on Twitter as your profile picture sends a message that you’re lazy, cheap, or you don’t care what people think.

Who Needs Video?

If you are in a business - B2B or B2C - and you want to grow, you need to incorporate video into your marketing plan.

Really - do you know how important video is for your business in today’s economy?

Google does. In the business world, video programing is a key component in corporate marketing. Google purchased youtube.com and is integrating sights with video into their searches. If you haven’t noticed yet, sites with video and YouTube videos are starting to show up higher and higher on organic searches.

  1.        Videos show up in Google search results.
  2.        Videos stand out in the search results.
  3.        Videos can actually rank better than your website.
  4.        Videos keep people on your website longer.
  5.        YouTube is the second largest search engine on the planet!
