The Hidden Value of an Older Workforce

Across North America, the workforce is going grey. In Canada, labour market participation rates of people 55 and over are rapidly increasing, from about 23 per cent in the mid-1990s to 37 per cent in 2015. In the US, those numbers are also on the rise — from 12 per cent in 1992 to 21 per cent in 2012. Concordia researchers provide practical tools to combat on-the-job ageism — and increase production

Evaluators of Employees Tend to Favor Financial Performance Over Contributions to Corporate Ethics

The “balanced scorecard” has emerged in recent decades as a popular workplace tool for appraising and rewarding employee performance. A study finds evaluators using a balanced scorecard tended to award high ratings and bonuses to employees who performed well financially, rather than to those who scored well in corporate social responsibility.

Not Only in Hollywood: Gender Pay Gap Persists in the Arts

The authors conclude: "Private employers in the arts would do well to look into the same affirmative action policies and income stabilization measures that appear to be effective in driving (relative) income parity in the governmental sector. Additional grants should be put in place to encourage the professional growth of female artists. Furthermore, if made better aware of these disparities, arts degree-granting institutions could place a heightened emphasis on building their students' self-promotional skills and enhancing their portfolios of other abilities necessary to be able to navigate the unique, contract-based trajectories of arts careers."

In their new book, Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children, two education professors focus on the six skills they say will help children become the thinkers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. University of Delaware's Roberta Michnick Golinkoff and co-author Kathy Hirsh-Pasek of Temple University, argue that the American educational model is not adequately preparing its tiny citizens for success in the 21st century. Today’s kids need well-developed “soft” skills to thrive in the global workforce. In fact, these so-called “soft" skills are anything but; they are foundational to children’s success in the workforce as well as in their personal lives. Especially since the advent of high stakes testing under No Child Left Behind, schools rely largely on the “font of wisdom” model where a teacher talks at the class for the bulk of the day. Yet, the authors say, research doesn’t support that kids learn best this way. Studies suggest kids flourish when they

Are Italians or Swedes More Likely to Cheat on Their Taxes?

Wide variations can be seen in how far citizens from different countries evade tax. While this can be attributed to how well institutions deter tax avoidance through audits and fines, cultural differences may also play a part.
