    by Andy Rasico - August 5, 2020
    First impressions are always important, and never more so than on the work-front.

    by Debra Wheatman - June 29, 2020
    I’m sure you’ve noticed the ubiquitous statements against racial inequality in recent days. Such statements are being issued by public organizations, educational and nonprofit institutions, and for-profit companies. These statements are, sorry to say, generally mealy-mouthed in nature. It is very unusual for any entity to come out publicly to disavow both explicit racism and microaggressions. (Kudos to Ben &...

    by Debra Wheatman - April 2, 2020
    My inbox is flooded with questions about COVID-19, including how employers should be handling the crisis and what employees should expect from their management.

And that’s okay because the employees that make up any organization should be the company’s priority. Thi...
