    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.

  • 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.

    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 gener...

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 fu...
