by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2010

Taming email means training the senders to put the burden of quality back on themselves. What's the best way to train everyone aro...

by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Jun, 2010
You would think that with last week’s verdicts in Velez v. Novartis – compensatory damages estimated at $1 billion, and $250 million in punitive damages – gender discrimination would be in the forefront of minds across the country. Apparently this is not so.

by Mandy Marchitello - Jun, 2010
And just like we rate Super Bowl commercials, hiring managers rate resumes. Give them a dull, poorly organized resume riddled with typos, and sure enough they’re going to pick up that remote and click to the next applicant. Conversely, provide them with a sharp, well written and visually appealing resume and they’re going to pick up...not the remote, but the telephone, to call you and schedule an interview.
