46% of Independent Contractors Are Found to be Misclassified - Take The IRS 20 Point Test & Protect Your Company

Ultimately, 46% of Independent Contractors reviewed by the IRS are determined to be misclassified and one in three companies fail a worker classification audit. The IRS claims to lose nearly $350 billion a year in unpaid taxes, with $39 billion attributed to underpayments or non-payments by independent workers.

Is Now the Time to Go Into Business for Myself?

After several years of layoffs, many companies are either standing pat with their current workforce sizes or even adding employees here and there.

Others, however, continue to make cuts where needed in order to stabilize their losses and try and position themselves for a positive 2012 as we sit a quarter of the way into the year.

In the event you have found yourself the victim of a job layoff recently or just do not look forward to going to work each and every day, could your…

How Many Corporate Recruiters Do We Need?

Recently, we have been spending a lot of time on the question “how many recruiters do we need in our corporate staffing function”?

Women Now Outnumber Men In The Workforce – What Does This Mean for Our Future?

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.

What does this mean for the American workforce?

Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…

I find this whole recruiting train of thought amusing...

With Linked In, Facebook, Twitter, and myriad other avenues of engagement - worrying about where the best site to place a job ad...well, er - it sounds like a discussion from a 100 years ago listening to two buggy whip salesmen chatting about which blacksmith to…

Does your staffing software allow you to enter “66,” “67,” “68,” and even higher numbers for the age of your workers? Can your system handle “100″? It probably does, but you should double check anyways, for workers 65 and older are one of the fastest growing segments of the American…

Do You Believe in a Glass Ceiling?

I am not sure one exists.  I do know that there is a shortage of female C level executives.  We recently hosted an IFRS update luncheon for CFOs and sent an invitation to every CFO of a publicly traded company in the Boston area and I only came up with 1 female CFO out of 70.
