Employees would rather receive their bonus as four quarterly payouts rather than a single lump sum at the end of the year, according to an extensive 2-year longitudinal study.

  • You’re spending a lot on employee bonuses. Might as well maximize the ROI. This month, we’ll tell you how.

  • Also: networking is a nebulous but important skill. If you're good at it, you can turn acquaintances into customers, or launch co-marketing partnerships. Karen Wickre, former Editorial Director at Twitter, told us her secret to sustaining lifelong connections in our latest podcast episode

  • Finally, we talk about how to get more customer referrals by sending incentives people actually want. Given that 92% of consumers trust referrals more than all other forms of advertising, getting customer referrals right pays off.
