by Melody Wilding - Mar, 2015
In the daily hustle of the workday, petty annoyances and inconveniences are par for the course. And often, when we counter those stressors, we handle them by complaining to anyone willing to listen.

Why Some Projects Will Always Fail
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2015
Accomplished project managers understand that it’s not always smart to play it safe. Most people with project management experience are familiar with Cobb’s Paradox. The term was coined when Canadian Martin Cobb was serving as secretary of the treasury board in the mid-90s and famously asked the question: “If we know why projects fail and we know how to prevent their failure, why do they still fail?” In his recent art...

by Ahmed Younies - Mar, 2015
In our last two posts, we examined key actions taken by the OFCCP in 2014 through the lens of President Obama’s ambitious agenda.

Choosing an Affirmative Action Plan Structure
by Chris Lindholm - Mar, 2015
Introduction In a time of changing laws and a pervasive fear of OFCCP audits, it is always a good idea to make sure that people have a good understanding of the basics in compliance and how internal decisions affect Federal contractors.
