How to make better hiring decisions
By Mel Kleiman
The best applicant and the best employee are rarely one in the same, so I recommend following a "hire tough, manage easy" philosophy. Even if you occasionally miss the mark, you will still be hiring to a higher standard. The following "best practices" will help you build an excellent team. First, remember there are two parts to every interview: gathering information and evaluating that information. To the best of your ability, keep them separate. Most interviewers have a tendency to let one good or bad answer skew their take on subsequent responses.

IRS pays bonuses to employees who don't pay their taxes
Albany Business Review
So you didn't pay the government what you were supposed to in taxes? No problem if you work for the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS paid more than $1 million in cash bonuses to more than 1,100 agency employees who owed back taxes to the federal government, according to an audit conducted by the Treasury Department's inspector general for tax administration.

By Robin Throckmorton
Following in the footsteps of Zappos, Amazon recently implemented its own "pay to quit" program to find out just how happy its employees are. In a nutshell, Amazon is offering up to $5,000 to employees to quit, with hopes that they won't take it. Why would Amazon do something like this?
