The Employer Investment

The Employer Investment
At the beginning of each year, I notice so many articles focused on how to prepare for performance reviews and leverage your worth to ask for a raise. While those pieces are valuable, what’s far less common is reading about the substantial investments companies make in their employees behind the scenes. Aside from salaries and wages, employers are also writing checks for a long list of other costs that each team member requires year round.

The Misclassification of Independent Contractors: A Costly Mistake

The Misclassification of Independent Contractors: A Costly Mistake
In September of 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama, along with Senators Kerry and Kennedy, introduced the Employee Misclassification Prevention Act into Congress.

On social media (and LinkedIn in particular) the fact is unavoidable: your profile photo is the first impression that someone has of you. Is your cat in the photo? Is there enough light on your face, or are you going for a "Batman in the shadows" vibe? What kind of message are you really sending to prospective employers, esteemed colleagues, and valuable networking connections? Your photo should be clean and professional so it portrays you as a credible person to connect with. Check out this infographic...

If you are known as the untidy, disorganized employee, you may be unknowingly viewed in an unflattering light. Even if you are leaps and bounds more mature than the office class clown, there is a possibility that your disorganization can put you in the same...
