The Water Cooler is dedicated to supporting the American worker by developing and distributing information that will enhance their ability to 'become all they can be'. In addition to a show topic facilitated by the host, listeners will have the opportunity to call-in anonymously to vent, ask a work related HR question, comment on the topic or share their own experiences. Instead of relying on management, human resources departments, unions or ombudspersons to empower workers to manage their work-life experience, our show promotes employee empowerment by providing them the knowledge, skills, abilities and motivational environment to improve job satisfaction, performance and career opportunities. By doing so, they will operate in their best interest and the best long-term interest of their organization. Call-In Number: 646-721-9515
