How to Rebrand 'Bossware' at Your Company

Gone are the days where bosses could simply walk by an employee’s desk and peek at their computer screen to see if they were on task.

The Future of Work Requires More Transparent Management

Most knowledge-economy workplaces are embracing the remote future of work.
