RUG CARE TIPS

  • Rotate your rugs frequently to equalize effects of the sun.
  • Avoid continual direct exposure to sunlight.
  • Clean spills immediately to help prevent staining.
  • Vacuum regularly to remove loose soil.
  • For professional deep-cleaning, be sure to use a rug specialist.
  • Always follow manufacturer's recommended cleaning methods.
  • EXECUTIVE OVERTIME

    More employees are working longer and harder, including managers, a new survey finds.

    In fact, says Robert Half International Inc., a staffing service that specializes in accounting, financing and information technology, more managers than ever believe there isn't enough time in the workday to get everything done.

    A recent survey of 150 managers and executives found that more than a third said their time on the job has gone up from five years ago. The average time spent working during the week now is 54 hours, according to the people polled.

    Because of that, warned Max Messmer, the chairman and CEO at Robert Half, more executives need to step back and reassess their own needs and the demands of their jobs, lest they start suffering from burnout.
