  • OFCCP Transparency and Federal Contractor Compliance Readiness
    by Sandra Hueneman - November 14, 2018
    For several years now, I have been conducting an ongoing study of OFCCP statistics and the impact on the contractor community. The most recent results are based upon the review and analyses of OFCCP closed compliance activity between FY 2014 through FY 2018 (as reported as of 7/21/2018) and do not address the compliance readiness of the entire federal contractor community who may have an open OFCCP compliance activity (evalu...

  • Veteran Recruitment: A New Approach
    by Ann Schueller - November 14, 2018
    Since the onset of low unemployment rates, hiring newly released veterans has been the buzz in the recruiting world as pools of qualified candidates shrink. In the last five years, there has been a plethora of resources popping up, many of them veterans themselves, offering their services to both employers and veterans to bridge the gap of understanding between the two.

  • Worker or Employee?  Affirmative Action Planning in the Gig Economy
    The 'gig economy,' characterized by freelance and temporary contract work, has grown exponentially in recent years. A January 2018 NPR/Marist poll found that, currently, one in five jobs in the United States is held by a contract worker and, within a decade, contractors and freelancers could make up half of the American workforce. This remarkable shift away from the traditional employer-employee relationship has and will con...

    by Alexandra Levit - November 13, 2018

  • The Problem with Problem-Solving Leaders
    by Dr. Maynard Brusman - November 8, 2018
    Many employees long for leaders who can solve workplace problems—from flawed systems and procedures to inconsistent policies and managers. They want their leaders to see through the trees and attack forest-sized issues, with the discernment and authority to fix them one by one. While this sounds great on the surface, employees who report to problem-solving leaders cite challenges that dwarf the problems themselves. Or...

  • New Mentoring Trends Help Boost Success in a Multigenerational Workplace
    by Lindsey Pollak - October 24, 2018
    When the concept of reverse mentoring burst on the scene in the multigenerational workplace, it was all about having cool 20-somethings teach the older crowd how to use “the Facebook.” Now most generations are pretty savvy—in fact their takeover of Facebook has sent Gen Z scurrying to Instagram or Snapchat. But that doesn’t mean that they still can’t learn a thing or two from the younger generati...
  • Design Thinking: A Model of Product Innovation

History is full of companies that were initially very successful but failed to innovate when the market changed, says Jeremy Brandt, founder and CEO of We Buy Houses, an online service that connects home sellers with potential buyers.

  • See Your Company from the Employees' Point of View (and Fix It)
    by Steve Farber - October 22, 2018
    Have you ever seen the reality show Undercover Boss? I highly recommend it. On the show, the CEO of a company, disguised in casual clothes and with a made-up back story, spends time working incognito alongside his or her front-line employees. There are the predictable inter-employee spats, miniature crises, and times when the CEO just doesn’t “get” how to do some simple task. It's all in good fun....
