U.S. CEOs spend timemanaging crises
NEW YORK -- Is the American CEO a firefighter in disguise?
Some apparently think so, according to a survey of 2,700 chief executives in nine countries who were asked, "What single management issue do you consistently spend most time on?"
Americans said they spend a fifth of their work time managing crises, compared with CEOs in France and Britain who said crisis management takes only 9 percent of their time.
Beyond that, strategic planning ranked high in most countries, with that activity taking a quarter of CEOs' time. The survey was conducted by Proudfoot Consulting of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Fun with co-workers
NEW YORK -- In these times of tight business budgets, employers are crimping raises, banishing bonuses and curtailing lavish business trips. So what can a cash-strapped company do for workers? Increasingly, they're looking at shared employee trips.
From white-water rafting to hiking, cycling to long strolls through the woods, employees are being treated to shared adventures with co-workers, according to The Herman Group, a North Carolina-based trend forecasting agency.
