Top Ten Challenges Accountants Face Today
Max Your Tax Deductions
AccountingWEB's Summer Dish Contest
Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor I find it amusing that there are so many articles written about how bosses and older workers need to find ways to communicate with the younger generation, meet them on equal ground, learn about their tools and technology, make accommodations for them in the workplace. I wonder if the World War II generation read the same types of articles when the Baby Boomers started pouring out of college and into the workplace. It seems to me that there is a shortage of articles for the Millennials, about how they need to learn to communicate with existing management, how they need to mold their needs to the existing workplace. Shouldn’t this communication thing be a two-way street?

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA

People management: What managers can learn from The Beatles
Determining whether your staff is a team or a group is an important distinction to make. For example, I'd claim the Beatles wasn’t a pop group. Before you lynch me for pop blasphemy, the difference is this: John, Paul, George, and Ringo weren’t a group – they were a team.
Blog: Tattoos and the workplace
Seems that everywhere you turn, people have more ink than ever before. Are tattoos acceptable in the workplace? All depends on where you work.
