Study: Stress Sources Differ For Managers And Employees — And Why It Matters
A study earlier this year from Towers Watson examined the sources of stress at work and found that managers and employees view the problem very differently. The study is called Workforce Stress: The Employer/Employee Disconnect, and involved approximately 5,000 workers at companies with over 1,000 employees. If there's a substantive "disconnect" and lack of understanding between the two groups, a fair question is: Can management effectively address the problem of workplace stress if it doesn't fully understand what the problem is?

Why Social Media Risk Planning Is Necessary For Your Brand
Whether a small independent business or a large B2B company, it is more evident than ever that businesses who do not build and maintain an online social media presence will get left behind, and evidently lack competitiveness. Having a social media presence offers clear advantages for marketing and sales departments, however, with this comes the disadvantage of having increased social media risks that could potentially harm the company’s brand. Therefore, it is extremely important that businesses adopt a Social Media Risk Plan to manage their reputation online and know how to mitigate potential threats.

Why Power In The Workplace Makes People Feel They Control Time
The Wall Street Journal
When it comes to time, people in power believe they have more of it at their disposal than others. In reality, time is a great equalizer. Minutes tick by at the same pace for all, whether the sun measures our day by lengthening shadows or an atomic clock subdivides our every second into 9 billion molecular moments. But positions of authority give people a sense they are better able to control time than subordinates, even though both groups are equally at the mercy of the clock. That conclusion is among the findings of five recent studies that measured how status and authority — the "boss effect" — shape our inner time zones.
