    Top marks to them; be loyal to your staff and they'll be loyal to you. :cool:
    A concept that my (ex) employer never considered last month.

    That’s awesome and it’s good to know he used the newly enacted loan program.
    There was a time when folks worked for a company their entire career. That hasn’t been the case for decades.

    Good move. It would be harder for PRS to lose all those skilled people.

    From what Ive seen on factory tour videos, i do think that even sanding those guitars requires an experienced person and given PRS’ attention to detail and quality, i dont think they can afford to lose anyone in that factory.

    regardless of what kind of loan that is, i have to give kudos to PRS for doing this

    It became evident to me back in the late ‘70s that working for the same company “for life” was a concept on the wane. When I left PBS (and eventually broadcasting in general) I decided that I really wasn’t going to work for a “company” again unless there was a goal in doing so.
    I taught sailing, did light salvage work, taught SCUBA, worked for a local hotel (goal was to buy a house), and opened up SewerSnake in 2006.

    I had a Dentist joke ready to go, but I will abstain.

    It is good to see that PRS did the right thing by it's employees.

    One only has to watch a factory tour guided by Paul to see what he is made of.
