Chicago, Illinois, 2018-Feb-05 — /EPR Network/ — With the stock market recently reaching dizzying heights, a program called Stepping Stones is providing parents with a fun means to educate their children on the workings of stocks and bonds. Being sold on Amazons’ Kindle store at the following link, the resource uses reading comprehension and mathematics to introduce third grade level children to a topic most of them won’t learn about until much later on in life (if at all). The primary character in the series is an inquisitive mouse called Dexter, who through the three books Dexter Learns About Stocks, Dexter Learns About Bonds and Dexter Learns About Stocks and Bonds Activity Book, uses interactions with his friends to educate children on the subject matter in a way which is both fun and entertaining. “It was important to make the character easily identifiable to children, so that they would become and remain engaged in the lessons being taught.” said creator of the program Anthony Rhodes.

Atlanta, GA August 30, 2011. One of the most important things about being a leader is being able to take honest feedback through employee surveys. While opening up oneself to the criticism and judgment of others is no small feat, it is essential in improving one’s growth as a leader.
A leader may strive to have all the qualities expected of him in order to set a good example in the workplace. He may be inspiring, challenging and he may possess a good humor. He may be punctual, sets meetings at the right time and he may delegate tasks well. In his mind he may be living up to the best of his abilities and to the expectations of his colleagues and subordinates. But this is only in his mind.

According to company owner Jim Shelton, “After more than three years of hard work and several set-backs, our program is finally ready for the PEO markets we have been trying to help”.
“The mid-market PEO will be able to breathe a refreshing sigh of relief with this program designed specifically for the PEO. In particular, smaller PEOs struggle to keep a workers’ comp policy, let alone afford it. Why? Simply put, workers compensation carriers have attached a negative stigma to PEO’s, requiring high collateral, deposits or “fixed” premiums based on an estimated annual premium, hurting the already beleaguered cash flow needed for the PEO’s day to day operations. Larger PEOs tie up precious cash flow and credit; that won’t happen with PML’s program”.
PML Risk Management, Inc. is trying to change the relationship between workers comp carriers and the PEOs who honestly and effectively manage their risk.
PML Risk Management, Inc, is not a professional employer organization (PEO), but the company owner has over 24 years experience as a PEO owner; fully aware of the workers compensation challenges and pitfalls facing the mid-market PEO, as well as the larger PEO.
