Do you have people on your team who consistently “go the extra mile?” Maybe they’re always enthusiastic about taking on new projects or maybe they’re on the lookout for ways to improve efficiency. However these professionals contribute, November 1 is a great time to recognize them. Extra Mile Day was first introduced in 2011, and in 2014, hundreds of cities across the United States embraced the occasion by officially celebrating organizations, institutions and individuals who help others live a better life.  

In this issue of Promotional Consultant Today, we highlight a few ideas for businesses, nonprofits and organizations of all kinds to celebrate Extra Mile Day.
