Glass companies look to employees to help shoulder rising healthcare costs

Healthcare premiums continue to increase, both for employers and their employees. A competitive bidding environment and still shaky construction market compound the problem for glass companies, as they look for ways to keep costs down and still offer benefit coverage. For some, this has meant asking employees to help offset more of the expense, according to a Glass Magazine survey.

Who is your go-to person when it comes to project management?
That person you can always rely on to make sure projects run smoothly, on schedule, and most importantly, on budget? We want to know! Glass Magazine is looking to acknowledge those people who keep multiple balls in the air, as they stay calm (at least most of the time!) Sound like someone you work with? Then nominate him or her for the Best Project Manager Glass Magazine Award.
