The Talent Compass: A Time for Giving Back and Some Kindness in the Workplace

In a world obsessed with cutthroat competition and ruthless ambition, kindness might seem like a quaint relic. But research shows that it’s not just a feel-good virtue; it’s a secret weapon in the workplace. Studies reveal that kindness boosts productivity by up to 26%, lowers stress levels, and fosters an environment where collaboration thrives. So, put down your cynicism and pick up a smile—kindness might just be the key to unlocking your team’s hidden potential.

Kindness in the workplace can help to build strong and positive relationships between colleagues. When people feel valued and appreciated, they are more likely to be collaborative, supportive and motivated, leading to higher levels of job satisfaction, increased productivity, and better overall performance.

Spread the kindness now and all year long. Read our blog for more insights.

Love, joy, and hope. One lasagna at a time. 

The team at 360 has joined together to support Lasagna Love – a global nonprofit and grassroots movement that aims to positively impact communities by connecting neighbors with neighbors through homemade meal delivery. “We also seek to eliminate stigmas associated with asking for help when it is needed most. Our mission is simple: feed families, spread kindness, and strengthen communities.”

This is the time of year for giving and receiving. Helping out those in need should be a yearlong endeavor. Join us in supporting this cause and do something great for someone local to your community. Let’s spread the (lasagna) love together.

December is National Write a Business Plan Month 

As the year draws to a close, it could be time to review your industry progress and decide where you want to go next. Whether you’re an established company, or just starting out, writing or revising your business plan is paramount to achieving success. And as it’s National Write a Business Plan Month, we are sharing some tips with you.

When writing your business plan, there are several key facets to include:

🔑Executive Summary

Describe your company and why it will be successful. Include your mission statement, product or service, and basic information; include financial information if you plan to ask for financing.

🔑Company Description

Provide detailed information about your company. Be specific about the problems your business solves, list the consumers or businesses you plan to serve, and explain what will make your business successful.

🔑Market Analysis

Have a firm grasp of your industry outlook and target market. Perform competitive research to show what other businesses are doing and what their strengths are. Look for trends and themes; then determine why it works and how you can do it better.

🔑Organization and Management

Outline how your company will be structured, and use an organizational chart to lay out who’s in charge of what. Also, state whether you have or intend to incorporate your business as a C or an S corporation, form a general or limited partnership, or if you’re a sole proprietor or limited liability company (LLC).

🔑Service or Product Line

Describe what you sell or the service you offer. Explain how it benefits your customers and the product life cycle. Share your plans for intellectual property, ie: copyright or patent filings, and provide any research and development.

🔑Marketing and Sales

Marketing is subjective, your strategy should be ever-evolving as the market changes. Provide details on how you’ll attract and retain customers. Explain how a sale will actually happen. Be sure to thoroughly describe your marketing and sales strategies.

🔑Funding Request

If you’re asking for funding, outline your requirements. Clearly explain how much funding you’ll need over the next 5 years and what you’ll use it for.

🔑Financial Projections

Supplement your funding request with financial projections, and clearly explain how you arrived at those calculations. Provide a prospective financial outlook for the next 5 years. Include forecasted income statements, balance sheets, cash flow statements, and capital expenditure budgets.


Provide supporting documents, such as contracts, product pictures, credit histories, letters of reference, licenses, permits, patents, and any legal documents.

Follow these steps and you’ll be set up for success in your new (or renewed) business venture.
