If you have entered into a contract with someone else, you want to know that the agreement will be enforced in the event that there is a dispute. Thus, you will want to be as specific as possible in the agreement and always make sure that things are in writing.

Most people qualify for Medicare after turning 65. The insurance plans are designed to cater to most but not all healthcare expenses. An original Medicare plan has Part A and Part B. The first part covers inpatient costs while the second caters to outpatient expenses. When you go to a hospital, you will be required to pay a deductible out-of-pocket and about 20% for things such as consultation services, ambulance services, and tests.

As a result, when many people turn 65, they purchase Medicare Supplement ...

If your commute gives you back an hour a day of your life, you can enjoy more time with family, or take ...

AOM this year was definitely not what we all initially anticipated. However, just as many of our habits and routines have had to change over the past few months, how we attend conferences has also changed. My friends and colleagues never tire of telling me that I tend to see the glass as half full, so – spoiler alert – this might have had an influence on this blog post. It is my pleasure to share my experience with you of this very first virtual annual meeting, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. So, with that in mind, I’d like to share two key things that were especially salient to me at this year’s AOM: the collegiality and the job market ...

When AOM announced that the Vancouver meetings would be canceled and the conference would move online, I started thinking about all the things I would miss. But I also began thinking about some of the possible advantages. Maybe having everything online and so easily accessible would mean that I would spend more time in sessions and less time on the street and in coffee shops, thus enhancing my organization and management theory education.

And maybe the millions ...
