Skin care devices work, but do we know about them?
New consumer research has found that people using skin care devices are happy with the outcome but awareness is low, offering a great marketing opportunity for companies in this space.

Why reputation and relationships are vital to your career
By Maria Huntley
Director of education and training at IntrinXec Management Maria Huntley writes: "I recently took 12 minutes out of my busy day to listen to a speech by a former colleague. Andrea Mokros delivered the commencement address at the University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts, and her message about the important role that your reputation and relationships play in your life really resonated with me.

5 tips to keep the customer experience momentum going
We've all heard the amazing stories of businesses that "surprise and delight" customers, like the airline that slyly asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas as they boarded their plane, then had those gifts waiting for them when the customers arrived at their destination.
These initiatives are certainly great ways to go above and beyond for customers — and they're just plain fun for all involved. But the customer experience must be more than an occasional highlight.

21st century work: Career-readiness isn't what it used to be
