Employment Summary for February 2018

The rate of job growth in the U.S. has been robust over the past several months as 2017 transitioned into 2018. Yet the expansion seen during February 2018 defeated expectations by a considerable margin. According to the latest edition of the Employment Situation Summary from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nonfarm businesses in America's private sector added 313,000 positions during the month.

Just before this event took place, German Chancellor Angela Merkel explained some of her intended talking points for the summit to the lower Bundestag house of the German parliament. Prominent among these was the desire for a renewed sense of European unity in the wake of England's Brexit public referendum and subsequent invocation of Article 50 to begin leaving the EU. As the biggest economy in the post-Brexit EU, Germany would now be responsible for the lion's share of the common budget that funds various

How Managers Can Best Motivate Top-Performers

Top-performing employees are a critical force at your company, capable of 400 percent greater productivity than the average worker, according to research published in Personnel Psychology. Beyond their personal output, top talent inspire and motivate other employees to do their best work. Despite their production and leadership capabilities, top performers need to be motivated too, and this is largely the responsibility of the manager. As the Harvard Business Review notes, top talent at an organization are often defined as such in part because they have the technical skills and interpersonal adeptness to do their managers' jobs.
