  • Gender roles continue to evolve
    Parental roles are converging, according to a report from the Pew Research Center, as more women pursue careers outside the home and men take on more housework and childcare responsibilities. While modern parenthood certainly hasn't eradicated "traditional" gender roles -- women still do the majority of housework and childcare -- it is forcing American parents to create a healthy work and family life balance.

  • The next generation of foodies
    Millennials eat at fine dining establishments twice as often as Baby Boomers, according to Technomic, and the younger generation is increasingly driving the latest culinary trends.

  • Webinar: "If you aren't talking to your employees about fraud, who is?"
    This March 28 session offers insight into recommended roles and responsibilities for fraud prevention and detection. From the direction and expectations of the board of directors to club executives and employees, everyone has a role in preventing and eliminating fraud. This program illustrates the expectations executives should set with their employees and underscores the type of anti-fraud training that clubs should provide to every employee.

    Webinar content includes a review of types of fraud and features case studies from clubs and other hospitality establishments. This is not a session about segregation of duties and standard internal control issues, but rather one that examines the fraud tolerance and conscience of clubs that will leave attendees thinking, “Who at my club is overtly delivering this message to the employees?”
