The Employers' Association

The Employers’ Association (TEA) is a not-for-profit employers’ association, formed in 1939, with offices in Grand Rapids serving the West Michigan employer community. We help more than 600 member companies maximize employee productivity and minimize employer liability through human resources and management advice, training, survey data, and consulting services.

TEA is in the business of helping people. This blog is intended to address human issues, concerns and the things that impact people - be they self-perpetuated or externally imposed. Feel free to respond to the thoughts presented here, for without each other, we are nothing!

We often base our reality more on what we see that on what truly is. If we stand outside a tunnel and look in we see a dark empty void that offers little hope. If, however, we stand in the tunnel and look out we see a new horizon holding unlimited possibilities. Perspective is a choice - choose your's wisely!
