  • How to get tangible results from employer-branding efforts

For instance, if you determine that your on-boarding process is crucial to assembling an effective sales team, that's where you should focus your branding efforts, they write. Also, you should keep a scorecard of metrics that you are looking to influence. Exaqueo (2/12) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • "Dr. Death" plans his own plastination
    German doctor Gunther von Hagens developed a technique for preserving human corpses with plastic and turned it into a worldwide, business staging grisly shows in which flayed bodies were arranged in lifelike poses. Now he's suffering from Parkinson's and pondering his own demise -- and wondering how his own plastinated body should be displayed. Wired.com (2/12) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
