Wish more companies would operate like this.
Empowering employees isn’t just for tech companies like Google. It’s something all kinds of successful companies share.

+Wegmans, an oft-featured Best Place to Work, is a privately owned regional grocery store operating in an industry where 1% profit margins are the norm. Brandix is a Bangladeshi textile manufacturer with a workforce that’s largely female and includes many people from difficult economic circumstances. Both companies are very different from Google, but we’ve all been rewarded with outsize performance by encouraging employees to bring their whole selves to work and act like owners once they get there.

Any company can do the same, all it takes is the courage to trust the great people you have. #workrules #google #trust

Doing my monthly vanity search on Google and found an article about +Michael Dell  CEO of Dell computers and 47th richest in the world, and my name is in the same article! He was in a hangout talking about using it for customer support and I had made a few suggestions to him about it. 
The computer maker's CEO considers the video abilities of Google's social network for connecting with customers and gets a generally favorable response.

This is a great place to bring the kids if you want to keep them occupied for a while. Lots of things for kids of most ages to do, 2yrs-13yrs. I had my sons 11th birthday here not long ago and the service was great. The staff made us feel welcome and helped with everything. They even lit the candles on the cake with candle they supplied. The only thing I would say is a weakness are the prices of the refreshments.

Great place for something to eat. Everything is lovingly made on the premises and the home cooked chips are awesome.

The Glencarn Hotel is a 4 star hotel and has some of the best country acts playing there every weekend. They have a wonderful staff that goes that extra mile to help out. The food is amazing and the Sunday Carvery is out of this world. It is a great place to stay with so much to see and do on it's doorstep.
