As I continued my deep dive into all the new items of legislation, today will focus on an act that amends the law regarding training and statute of limitations for complaints .

But there are two other subtle changes: First, employers will not be required to provide sexual harassment training to an employee who, within two years before being hired, received it while working for ano...

The Top 6 Ted Lasso Workplace Lessons

One of my favorite finds during the pandemic has been Ted Lasso – the Apple TV breakout hit.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s about an American football coach who gets hired for an English Premier League soccer (or the “other football”) team. At least that’s what it’s ostensibly about. But not really. Because to watch Ted Lasso is to appreciate the optimism that Ted Lasso has. Like some of the best workplace comedies (think Newsradio, Taxi, or sure, the Office), the workplace just serves the basis...

After bootstrapping since 2002, Articulate raises $1.5B on $3.75B valuation

Most companies don’t announce their first venture investment after almost 20 years in the business, nor do they announce that round is the equivalent of a good startup’s entire private fundraising history.

You can call it Series A if you must label it, but whatever it is, it’s a hefty investment by any measure. General Atlan...
