No, not Rowe vs Wade (but I’m sure I’ll have a rant on that if the current court hears a case that could reverse that land mark decision)… but Result Only Work Environment; essentially a version of “Flex Time” that is focused on increasing productivity by avoiding “presenteeism” (where someone is physically in the office, but mentally somewhere else).

You can read about an article on NPR about the Human Services and Public Health Department of Hennepin County (Minneapolis, MN).

Employment Contact

For those who have located my résumé on line, please note that the email address that is on the résumé will generate a “Mail Delivery System” failure message; in that message will be the URL for my Employment Contact form.

It is truly unfortunate, but the amount of email (SPAM) I’m getting on these address that’s actually getting through the filters is staggering.  It appears one of the “hot” new jobs is people “stealing” email addresses and using them to send unsolicited commercial email too — and many companies (like Comcast; case ID NA0000014230535) don’t want to enforce their acceptable use policies for their [business] customers.

You can bypass getting the message and just use a contact form I’ve setup.

The contact form URL is http://rogersoles.com/employment, that will redirect you to a special contact form here on my BLOG.

I will respond to you from a disposable email address.
