Support for Austin's Best Places to Work
There are a number of factors that can motivate employees to work hard. A good salary, or a competitive benefits package attracts many workers. But it takes a special workplace to keep employees truly engaged and committed - to inspire them to go above and beyond the call of duty to become real superheroes on behalf of their employers.

Our own Fathom team was pleased to meet a number of these superheroes recently at the Austin Business Journal's 2016 Best Places to Work event, sponsored in part by Fathom Corporate Training. The top 75 firms in Central Texas were recognized at this epic event attended by more than 700 people. We had a great time at the Fathom booth where we gave away 10 free training classes and other great superhero prizes.

Time Management Skills Workshop  
Dates: Jul 28 & Sep 16
Time is like a river; it keeps on flowing even though we get caught up in its turbulence and can't seem to come up for air. Later, we realize that we are out of balance and off course both personally and professionally. Without effective time management skills, new and constantly changing corporate objectives can be overwhelming, leaving us feeling out of control.

Assertiveness Skills Workshop  
Dates: Sep 2

It's no mistake and should come as no surprise that those who are assertive in life and at the workplace achieve success. Many times though, we are afraid to ask for what we need, feeling we are pushing or being rude to others. Today's business environment requires that we have the flexibility to step up to those challenges we are dealt with to win. Assertive behavior is a necessity.

Generations at Work Workshop
