Are Your Employees Properly Suited to Work?
Running a company comes with all kinds of tasks, many of which some business owners are better at handling than others. ​When it comes right down to it, company heads must be sure they carefully balance their budgets, make the right hires, provide stellar customer service, and come up with ways to continue growing their businesses. With that in mind, stop for a few minutes and think about the work environment you oversee as 2016 unfolds.

Why Being on Time to Work Matters
Most of us have been there at one time or another. You start a new job and make sure that you’re on time for the first few weeks. Before you know it, whether by accident or plan, being at work at 8 a.m. turns into showing up at 8:03 a.m., 8:05 a.m., 8:10 a.m., and so on, and you are being reminded of what your hours truly are.

You Did What on Your Job Interview?
In times when the job market is still less than something to jump up and down about, it only takes one gaffe on a job interview to send the job along to someone else. So, whether you have interviewed dozens and dozens of times over the years or find yourself this year going out on your very first interview, by all means avoid some of the following miscues if you want to increase your chances of landing that gig.

Is Your Online Reputation Giving You the Business?
Whether you already have the job you desire or find yourself searching for a new one, your online reputation can say a lot about you. In fact, it can also influence whether or not you get the job in the first place. You may be thinking that what you say or project on social network, online forums, and other Internet venues means little, but you may soon discover that it cost you that job you wanted.

Make Being on Time for Work a Given
Most of us have been there at one time or another. You start a new job and make sure that you’re on time for the first few weeks. Before you know it, whether by accident or plan, being at work at 8 a.m. turns into showing up at 8:03 a.m., 8:05 a.m., 8:10 a.m., and so on, and you are being reminded of what your hours truly are.

The Good, The Bad, and The Really, Really Ugly
Many business offices are full of chatter during the work day, but what happens when some of that talk turns to the office romance? In those cases, nothing good usually comes of it.

Your First Day at Your First Job
We’ve all been there at one time or another. Yes, the dreaded first day at a new job. Like the first day at a new school or going into a new grade, the first day with a new employer can be everything from what seems like the longest day of your life to the most anxious day. If you are lucky, it falls somewhere in between.

How to Promote Your New Business with Limited Cash
As many people sit unemployed, some have turned to lifelong dreams of opening up their own small businesses. For many, now is as good a time as ever to follow this dream.

Being Too Social Can Impact Your Job Search
Most of us have a presence on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ (to name but a few), and oftentimes we’re not thinking before our fingers hit the keyboard or touch pads.

Managing the Right Way: Tips for New Managers
For those who manage other employees, the role can be one that is sometimes fraught with fears of being perceived as too micromanaging, not tough enough, or lacking in leadership capabilities. As a manager, do any of those descriptions seem close to you?

Education as an Option for the Laid Off
With the national unemployment rate still sitting at around 9.1%, it isn’t strange to hear that many laid-off Americans are going back to college to sharpen their skills and even learn about completely new areas of interest, looking to use that education to locate a job down the road.

Titanic Nightmare: Will Your Small Business Hit an Iceberg?
If you treat your customers right, offer good products and services, hire quality staff, and make them want to come to work each day, there is a good chance that you will set sail on a successful and enjoyable business career. Trust me; the alternative of going down with the ship is not a very pleasant thought.
