Drama isn’t just present on the set of the Real Housewives anymore; it has made its way into the workplace. More than half (53 percent) of support staff workers in the U.S. — including administrative assistants, receptionists, security guards, janitors and more — have overheard private conversations in the workplace, while more than 1 in 10 (11 percent) say they know enough to get someone fired, according to a new CareerBuilder study.

Tony Beshara knows a thing or two about the staffing profession, having been a manager in the staffing industry 41 years and an owner for the past 26. He has a message for staffing firm owners and employees: You don’t put enough weight on the value you bring to your clients.

The cold weather or family-friendly work schedules may mean more workers are logging hours from home, and technology has enabled employees around the globe to work together. With a team widely dispersed around the world, though, it’s not easy being a manager. To overcome potential hurdles, employ these three essentials for managing remote workers and staying in touch with your team.

According to the January jobs report, U.S. employers added 257,000 jobs, beating expectations. The report has also shown some increase in wages. The bad news within this good news is you may have to increase compensation.

It's February, and our resident talent advisors are thinking about how and why you need to invest in employees right now for maximum results.

Investing in your employees is a business endeavor. Although we love to treat our workers like family members, it's more than just about making your workforce love you. In fact, you may not want to treat them like family members after all.
