Study: Individual rewards can boost team performance at work

Conventional wisdom has held that boosting team performance in the workplace should focus on rewarding entire teams that perform well – and that rewarding individuals increases competition rather than helping team performance.

Three New Job Scams Targeting Work-From-Home Job Seekers

Tips offered to keep job seekers aware of vulnerabilities during their job searches

BOULDER, Colo. – FlexJobs has detailed three new online scams that specifically target job seekers interested in work-from-home jobs.  These job scams include the reshipping scam, the Post Office scam, and the online interview scam.  According to a FlexJobs survey with over 2,600 respondents, 17 percent of job seekers have reported being a victim of a job scam at least once, if not multiple times. 81 percent of respondents indicating they were either “very concerned” (33 percent) or “on guard” (48 percent) during their job search.  Only 5 percent of respondents said they have never seen a scam to their knowledge.   “The best protection against job scams is to equip job seekers with information about the latest techniques scammers are using to trap their victims.  Many people believe that job scams are always very obvious and easy to avoid, but unfortunately there are an increasing number of sophisticated job scams,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs.  ”Since there are an estimated 60 to 70 scams for every one legitimate work-from-home job position, job seekers looking for telecommuting roles have to be vigilant in guarding against fraudulent opportunities.”
