Is casual dress killing your productivity at work?
Forbes
What do people wear at your office? Chances are jeans, casual T-shirts/shirts or sweaters dominate the culture.

Proponents say such experiments not only come with a low price tag, but they can help a company's bottom line, even if they leave a few disgruntled workers in their wake.

The greatest productivity tool you never thought of: autoresponder
Fast Company
When it comes to emailing people, "We're lazier than a Google search. We expect information to come immediately, so we feel a responsibility to spit information out immediately." For many people, info-spitting makes up a huge chunk of their time — about 28 percent of the day. Could the autoresponder change all that?
