Does LinkedIn’s TOS Mean it is time to Send an SOS?

As promised, LinkedIn’s Terms of Service went into effect June 7th. Announcing the new updated terms of service, the company said:

At LinkedIn, our “members first” philosophy helps guide every decision we make, including how we gather and respect your personal information. Today, we’re giving you an early look at LinkedIn’s updated Terms of Service – our Privacy Policy and User Agreement – so that you can understand what’s changing before it takes effect on June 7, 2017.

Since they announced the changes way back in April. But don’t worry if you forgot what they are. If you are like most people, you accepted the new terms without reading them. If you would like a refresher, click here.




Need More Productivity From Your Staff? Let Them Work From Home.

I have always said that since working at home, I work more than I ever did that I did than from an office. A recent Inc. article proves my thoughts:

Full-time employees who work from home aren’t just happier and healthier–they also happen to provide strong results to their employers, which include:

  • 77 percent report greater productivity while working off-site
  • 30 percent accomplish more in less time, while 24 percent accomplish more in the same amount of time
  • 23 percent are even willing to work longer hours than they normally would on-site to accomplish more
  • 52 percent are less likely to take time off when working remotely–even when sick.

Which means employers can no longer ignore the hiring reality that will soon hit them: The top talent you want working for you will increasingly demand the ability to work remotely.

So what do you have to say about that? Well, click here to read more first…

Work at HomeICYMI: Apollo Global in advanced talks to buy jobs website CareerBuilder:

Private equity firm Apollo Global Management LLC (APO.N) is in advanced talks to acquire U.S. job-hunting website CareerBuilder LLC after negotiations with another buyout firm ended unsuccessfully, according to people familiar with the matter. 

CareerBuilder has been up for sale at a time when many popular job websites have become acquisition targets as they struggle to translate user growth into profits. Last September, credit ratings agency Moody’s Investors Service called CareerBuilder’s operating performance “weak.”
