The Water Cooler
On the job, the water cooler, break room or lunch room is where employees traditionally gather to discuss the work issues of the day. Our show, 'The Water Cooler’, improved on this cathartic ritual by adding a knowledgeable discussion facilitator and expanding the venue to include the Internet community. We were dedicated to supporting the American worker by developing and distributing information that would enhance their ability to become all they could be in their work environment and avoid being taken advantage of because they didn't know their rights.
Instead of relying on management, human resources departments, unions or ombudspersons to empower workers to manage their work-life experience, we encouraged them to assume that responsibility! By doing so, they would operate in their best interest and the best long-term interests of their organization.
