Today is Memorial Day in the USA so many of my colleagues will be enjoying the day with their families and friends and making the most of the good weather while those of us here in Canada cover for them (as they did for us last Monday when we enjoyed Victoria/Patriots Day).


As a global business with a presence in 26 countries, it can sometimes be easy to forget that our colleagues may not be working that day especially when you consider how many public holidays some countries receive Revealed: Countries With The Most Number Of Public Holidays


Having worked for multi-national corporations my entire working life, I’ve also seen first hand the difference in work ethic between certain countries (live to work vs work to live) and I recognize that public holidays give us the opportunity to recharge our batteries which is much needed in our fast pace of life.
