About the Author

B.L. Brown is the CEO and Founder of Halo-Orangees', international online job board (halo-orangeesjobs.com). The genesis of Halo-Orangees Brand: Helping Advocate Longevity of Organizations by Obtaining Objectives through Redefining Above-Board New Generational Guidelines for Employer Employee Standards was inspired, developed, and birthed from her reaction to an unethical manager with whom she had the pleasure of working for and whose style of supervision made her stronger.

In a one-on-one meeting with this executive director, he made the statement that another employee, who held the same title as B.L. Brown, was better than she was. In response, B.L. Brown informed him that this employee was not better than her nor was she better than the employee. From that one statement, she instantly realized her true purpose in life. "Best negative words spoken into my life thus far". (Excerpt~ B.L. Brown). Reckoning her experience with a newfound belief, the foundation of Halo-Orangees emerged.


In 2012 Author B.L. Brown launched Halo-Orangees/h-connect brand, international online dating website h-connect.net. The h-connect.net brand is empowering, motivating singles to find their best friend in love.

Halo-Orangees employer-employee "one accord" said exactly what many of us think, but has never verbalized. It has a lot of information that's valuable and should be used as a guideline for all organizations. The concept can be adopted into most corporate cultures with a simple acknowledgement from management and a real desire for your organization to be on "one accord."

There are a lot of issues in the work place. The vast majority stem between employers and employees. B. L. Brown creates a handbook to address those issues and lay the foundation for a better work environment in Halo-Oranges: employer-employee.

This book does cover both sides of the equation: employer and employee. It is not one-sided which is good and honest when it comes the reality of the workplace. I think the book could have been developed even further with many of the topics.

Some of the examples were hard to follow as they were too long. These should have been simplified or turned into case studies which might have been better and would have opened the door to expand some areas. Having examples are good and help the reader understand real life experiences in those situations.

If all these issues were addressed, I think companies would find that they were much better internally and externally. But that would be nigh impossible, sadly. The book is an example of a workplace utopia that will never be achieved as long as their are investors involved. The author calls this a handbook. I think that description would fit better if there was a slight change in the overall format: bullet points, summaries, and even worksheets that the readers could take away.

This is a good resource to have that employers and employees should read. I just don't think they want to change. This is a book you should read. Anyone would find something in there to improve upon and do their part in the big scheme of things.

Note: This book was provided as part of a book tour with no expectation of a positive review.

This book is very inspirational, uplifting, and encouraging. Anyone and I mean anyone can relate to the real life experiences captured in this book. Halo-Orangees' employer-employee "one accord" Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team helped me get through a tough time in my life (on the job). At the time I was dealing with people who were lacking in their personal lives, who had low self-esteem and were just down-right unhappy and jealous individuals. The real life testimonies and inspirational passages at the end of each chapter helped me to realize that their problems and issues were not going ruin my life on the job. By reading this book, I was able to see an outlet and look beyond my current situation and see my marvelous future that was awaiting. Here is an excerpt from one of my favorite motivational passages: "Tomorrow is not being confined to the box someone else created and labored for you. Tomorrow is to live, believe, and achieve. Tomorrow is the birth of your dreams. Tomorrow is you over exceeding expectations. Tomorrow is longevity. Tomorrow is an open door to becoming a Bloomberg Game Changers like the Oprah Winfrey's of the world. When you are forced to work in a non-structured environment filled with drama, remember tomorrow is a new adventure that will be better than yesterday a rocket ship ride, destination-endless possibilities."

Format: Paperback
I must say this is a well written extraordinary book. It is a definite must read for any employer and/or employee. It is a easy read that will keep your attention. I liked how the author speaks about how we as individuals are the only one who can define who we are. She states to never allow anyone to tell you who you are or that you aren't good enough. The author gave an experience in the book of how a employer once told her that another employee was better then her. It states we are to never allow anyone to isolate you into workforce confinement or causing you to feel as if you inadequate. Confinement is not our destiny. This book causes you to think outside the box or that little box that employers or coworkers try to place you. There are many nuggets written in this book that can assist an individual to become on one accord as an employee and employer. Again, a great read.

Format: Paperback
Halo-Orangees is an acronym standing for Helping Advocate Longevity of Organizations by Obtaining Objectives through Redefining Above-Board New Generational Guidelines for Employer Employee Standards. It is intended, it seems, as a combination of self-help book for employees and a recommended means of action for employers. A variety of human resource management areas are considered, ranging from interviewing procedures, training and orientation, workplace relations and resolution of interpersonal issues.

The basic messages are, for employers, that there are numerous occurrences of dysfunctional personal relationships often caused by poor managerial practice and which can be remedied by following the procedures to be outlined in the forthcoming handbook and, on the other hand, that employees should be able to stand up for themselves and to resist any form of containment or confinement by others in the workplace. For example, on p.XIV, as part of a longer paragraph along the same lines, author B.L. Brown writes: "Don't ever allow anyone to attack your self-esteem, kill your passion, or tell you that someone else is more worthy than you. Don't ever allow anyone to disrespect you or make you feel ashamed of your rate of pay. Don't ever allow anyone to isolate you into workforce confinement or knock you down and claim defeat over you." There are many people who are motivated or inspired by this kind of language and, for them, this might prove to be a helpful piece of self-help or self-empowerment.

Overall, the text is well-organized, streamlined and easy to follow. Those who enjoy the messages contained are likely to find the text inspirational, informative and compelling.
