You cannot lead until you have their trust
By Dov Baron
A creeping crisis is facing companies today. Over the next 20 years, this crisis will affect the bottom line harder than the recession of 2008. What is the crisis? The loss of valuable, trained employees. The average company spends 1.5 to 2 times the annual salary of an employee in training and development. Meanwhile, the average millennial employee is looking at a tenure of only 1.2 to 2.4 years. That means you will see your employee walk away before your investment ever pays off.

Maybe we should eat those carbs after all
By Archita Datta Majumdar
In the film "The Devil Wears Prada," Anne Hathaway's character Andy is admonished by a colleague because she eats carbs. The line was meant to be funny, but what it actually represented was a generation of people shunning an entire group of foods. For years now we have listened to nutrition experts preaching the goodness of proteins and the evil of carbs. Well, just as we have managed to psych ourselves out of the carb craving, a new study reveals we should reverse our efforts.
