By Caitlin Harrison
Are your employees getting enough sleep? Likely not. Chances are they’re sleeping less than the seven to nine hours recommended by the National Sleep Foundation — averaging 6.8 hours per night, according to Gallup. But there may be something you can do about it.

Fast Company

Senior women report they are at times labelled "ball buster" and "ice queen." And it's not only men who apply these terms. Women everywhere need to combat these stereotypes that suggest there is something wrong with being the strong, confident women we have every right to be.

Women, even in high school, even after graduating from college, at 16 and 26 and 36, make less than their male peers. Second, the gap gets much worse as workers get into middle age.
