Team Member Spotlight - Georgine Cooper

Something new for the Fairway Talent blog… a chance to hear directly from our team members!  This installment features our very own Georgine Cooper, Product Development Manager at ETA hand2mind.  Here’s what's on her mind:

Some approach the education of children from the angle of equipping them to ”pass muster” in rigorous—and, some would argue, over much—testing.  Children are more inclined to approach learning with a sense of wonder with hands outstretched and minds open to possibility. The ongoing development of our Hands-On Standards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program honors our foundational belief in the time-tested, research-backed process of hands-on learning by engaging children in learning by exploring, doing, and applying discovery to new thinking.  It has been an exciting experience for the product development team and for the children in classrooms where we are testing it.

Summer Hours for Our Valued Employees!

At the Fairway Talent family of companies, our employees receive an added benefit during the summer months.  From June 13th to August 22nd this year, our offices will close on Fridays at noon so our employees can spend extra time enjoying the summer days, sharing time with family, or just getting a jump start on the weekend.  It's one more way that we demonstrate our commitment to our valued talent!  Of course, our customers are still cared for so there's no break in service.  Now if only those cold temperatures would stop in the Chicagoland area so we can finally see some of that spring weather!
