A look at the nature and numbers of HIPAA breaches over just the couple of years makes stark reading: On the one hand, in terms of numbers; 2016, with about 16 million records breached was a pretty good year compared to the previous year, in which about seven times that number, more than 113 million, were breached.

The issue is not time itself, but the way in which it is managed.

Establishing the Mentor-Mentee Relationship is Crucial for Organizations

One of the important relationships that define an organization’s destiny is the one between the mentor and mentee. When handled properly, it is a highly effective means of delegating, increasing productivity, raising the organization’s profile, and for accomplishing a number of business goals.

The way an organization charts its mentor-mentee relationship is largely subjective and individual. It is difficult to lay down strict rules for this kind of relationship. Yet, if there is no…

I don’t use this metaphor lightly, nor wish to trivialize our nation’s growing problem with…

How to uncover fraud, and put a plan in place to prevent it going forward

Internal fraud, by which people who work for an organization are themselves involved in fraud, is a serious issue for businesses. This kind of fraud is very insidious, as it is stealthy and is almost impossible to detect. Accounts Payable, a core component of most organizations, is one of the primary areas of fraud. This AP fraud is something organizations don’t seem to be precluded from, no matter what the nature of their business or its size.

Yet, learning to…

Documentation of Employee Discussions is all Important

As with law, the dictum for management is this: What is not documented does not exist. One can look back at the age-old Latin adage to this effect -Verba Volant, Scripta Manent, meaning “what is said flies, what is written stays”. This just about summarizes the need for documentation in organizations.

Documentation is at the heart of organizations, because when employees take an organization to court for some strong reason such as termination -and there is no dearth of such…
