When it comes time to translate documents from one language into another, there is a certain temptation to simply use Google Translate or one of the other widely available translation apps. After all, these apps are fine and they can do the same job as a professional translation service, right?
On the contrary, certified translation services offer the sort of benefits that are not always immediately recognizable. Let’s take a closer look at some of these advantages that are not always considered in these scenarios.

As the #MeToo movement continues to reverberate across industries, the message is clear that sexual harassment training should be priority for all employees, not just managers and supervisors. Recently, New York City and New York State strengthened their anti-harassment laws to mandate training for all employees, supervisors and managers. Other states and municipalities are expected to follow. Training is one of the pillars of a holistic approach to preventing harassment and other inappropriate conduct. If everyone is responsible for contributing to a respectful, safe workplace, then it follows that all employees should participate in training that provides the knowledge and skills they need to understand the interrelationship between preventing harassment, discrimination, retaliation, bias and other workplace conduct and creating a positive, inclusive work environment.There are many benefits of sexual harassment training for employees. Here are five:
It wasn’t that long ago that a new field of ethics and ethical studies began. In the 1960’s, bioethics came onto the scene as medical science advanced. There was great fear that doctors would “play God” with new and experimental treatments. The field grew in prominence soon after as genetic research advanced. Bioethicists discussed everything from “designer babies” to the source of fetal tissue for research, from transplants to physician assisted suicide. But the bottom line was simple – as science advanced so did man’s ethos.
My daughter is 5 now, and by the time she was 2, she started to develop an understanding of what “fairness” is. I think the desire to be treated ‘fairly’ is inherent to our human nature. And as a member of the ethics and compliance community, whether your department is legal, compliance, human resources, or something else, you have a responsibility to your constituents to create an investigation process that is as fair, transparent, consistent and unbiased as possible. I’ve found that even if your employees do not like the outcome of the investigation or the answer to their question, they are far more likely to respect it if they know they are treated like everyone else.
Here are some HR investigation protocol tips to help you create a consistent investigation process and ultimately build a culture of trust.

As an employer or supervisor, it’s your responsibility to create a work environment that’s free of all types of harassment, including verbal, physical, and sexual harassment. If you want your employees to do their jobs well, they need to feel safe and respected when dealing with their colleagues every day. If you don’t deal with and actively prevent harassment in the workplace, you could be held liable if you or one of your employees is accused of harassing another employee. Reduce all types of harassment in the workplace by setting and enforcing strict guidelines, communicating effectively with your employees, and by establishing a means for dealing with and responding to harassment complaints...
There’s different types of companies out there – there are some who saw this coming, took it seriously, made changes in process, upgraded technologies, and for those of us who did take this very seriously, we woke up May 26, 2018 the same way we woke up January 1, 2000. The coffee pot worked – only now it was a Keurig and not a Mr. Coffee, ESPN was still on – only now on a QLED curved screen and not a projection TV the size of a walk in closet, and the sun rose.

The European Union has updated its consumer data privacy regulations. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a robust piece of legislation that’s setting a new standard for how EU companies manage and protect their customers’ data. The EU is known for imposing considerably more strict cybersecurity protocols compared to the U.S. But many of the companies that conduct business in the EU do not have the digital infrastructure in place to comply with the new law. And time is running out. Since adopting the GDPR in April of 2016, the EU wants companies to be GDPR-compliant by May 25th of 2018. So, if your company is conducting online transactions in the EU, you should take a moment to learn about the GDPR and the steps you can take to comply with the law.
