  • Mars Inc. is out of this world, workers say
    Mars is a secretive company run by a "weirdly reclusive" family -- but the firm's employees aren't complaining. Besides free candy and license to chew gum, workers are kept happy by generous bonuses, mentoring programs and a quirky corporate culture. "At the end of the day, I think there's a strong feeling we're all Martians," says Wrigley President Martin Radvan. CNNMoney/Fortune (2/4) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • How quiet focus can make you a better leader
    Taking time to slow down at work can help you become calm, focused and notice when others need the same help, Mary Jo Asmus writes. She suggests building time into your day to set intentions, pausing before reacting and talking with co-workers, not at them. "Look them in the eye and listen deeper than you ever have," she suggests. "You might find that you really don't need to say much at all."
