  • How to Find Value in Your Hidden Inventory
    by Steve Farber - March 27, 2018
    When you are consumed by an idea – as most entrepreneurs are – it’s not always easy to put the car in park and take an inventory of your business. There’s work to be done, right? Goals to pursue. Clients to call. Customers to serve. Employees to inspire. There’s a strong pull to go, go, go … There is value, however, in having a clear picture of the value of your business. And for many en...
  • Spring - A Time for Cleansing Emotions
    by Carole Kanchier - March 26, 2018
    Spring is finally here. The days are longer, warmer, and the trees are starting to bloom. We're open to inviting change into our lives! Spring is a time to get rid off all that junk we’ve accumulated over the winter. Yes, physical junk such as heavy coats and boots, but also the emotional baggage we’ve picked up over the winter. Spring is also a time to forgive. Forgiveness is freeing up and putting to be...
  • Do you rely on process
    by Alexandra Levit - March 23, 2018
    An over-reliance on process and procedures can lead to poor decision-making and a lack of agility. I know that the topic of generational differences irritates some people. My personal experience, though, is that when it comes to certain things, baby boomer points of view do often differ from millennial points of view. One of these areas of debate is process. Why (Some) Boomers Like Process and (Some) Millennials Don&rsqu...
  • OFCCP and the Rule of Law – Part III: Field Offices Often Ignore OFCCP’s Rules
    by Bill Doyle - March 23, 2018
    In prior articles in this series, published on November 17, 2017 and February 14, 2018, I proposed an evaluation of OFCCP's recent regulatory and enforcement positions through the lenses of the fundamental and perennial question, 'What is Law?' This review is timely because the new Administration is building its team and considering the regulatory and enforcement approaches to be implemented on its watch. In the last...
  • Resist the Temptation to Move Applicants from One Requisition to Another
    by Alissa Horvitz, Josh Roffman - March 23, 2018
    This article discusses the trend by electronic applicant tracking systems to permit recruiters greater flexibility in moving applicants, who applied under one requisition, into a different requisition, so that the applicant may be considered for the same job at a later date or for other roles besides the one to which he or she applied. We disfavor that trend for government contractor employers subject to OFCCP's jurisdic...
  • Scheduling Letters Are on Their Way – Are You Ready?  The Top Five OFCCP Audit Preparation Tips
    by Scott Pechaitis, Lisa Marsh - March 23, 2018
    Last month, OFCCP announced it had sent 1,000 Courtesy Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs) to contractors to notify them that they would be audited by OFCCP in the near future, and as soon as March 19, 2018. As contractors who were on that CSAL list anxiously check their mail boxes for audit scheduling letters, it’s a good time to evaluate best practices for preparing audit submissions to OFCCP.

    The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) adopted the Darden 1 factors in 2014, to assist federal contractors in determining whether certain types of employees should be included in a federal contractor's Affirmative Action Plan. While these factors do shed some light on determining whether someone is an employee or a contractor, it has limited application for positions held by students at academic insti...
  • Why Work?
    by Sheryl Letwat - March 23, 2018
    My job is to find community employment for adults with disabilities. I work for an agency in the Chicagoland suburbs and when talking with others about what I do, I frequently get asked, 'Why would your clients want to work? They receive disability benefits and don’t have to do anything for it.' This comment always troubles me. People with disabilities have hopes, dreams and goals for their future, just like anybody el...
  • 4 Things Successful People Do to Have Great Relationships

    Relationships fuel our journey. Some are constant sources of power, some are present for certain intervals and provide guidance and help. There are others, however, which should be avoided, ended, or minimized because they represent unwanted detours, excess weight, or distraction. First let’s review different types of relationships. Some are permanent; examples can include our families, life partners, close friends...
