ACCOUNTING & AUDITING
Reporting on revenue recognition changes is still causing confusion -- even for analysts
MarketWatch
The revenue recognition shortcut allowing apples-to-oranges comparisons for revenue and profit growth was supposed to simplify things for companies and analysts alike. Spoiler alert: It hasn't.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
One is the loneliest number
McKinsey & Company
Put an end to the costly workplace isolation experienced by many women by banishing the barriers that hold too many back. Implementing these practical measures is a good start.
ECONOMY
In new report on automation, some good news for Minnesota's workers
MinnPost
Technology is threatening to automate nearly one quarter of American jobs, with the Midwest predicted to be at the greatest risk. That is, except for Minnesota. What makes us so special?
HUMAN RESOURCES
Changes to the Affordable Care Act
Larry Morgan, MAIR, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, GPHR
Every February, HR expert Larry Morgan notices an uptick in ACA-related calls to the HR Hotline. This year, he's getting ahead of the questions by penning this overview.
Extreme weather events are the perfect time to test remote work options for your employees
Forbes

MANAGEMENT

Industry Week
Your eyes haven't deceived you -- the headline above is correct. Deploying an ERP system needn't be a nightmare. Simply subscribe to the wisdom of those who have gone before you.
How fearless organizations succeed
Strategy + Business
Three in 10 employees strongly believe that their opinions count at work. That means 70 percent of your team is afraid to speak up. Think of what could be achieved if everyone felt safe enough to share.

Peter Margaritis, CPA, CGMA
Whether at the conference table or kitchen table, embracing the "yes, and ..." approach to negotiating wins every time.

Peter has more management, leadership and communications insights for you during his CPE courses this March. Check them out!
SUPERVISION
The surprising value of obvious insights
MIT Sloan Management Review
Common sense is rarely common practice. Turn your duh-ha moments into aha revelations by learning to recognize what's genius in the painfully obvious.
WORKPLACE TRENDS
Workplace theft is on the rise
