BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Slack cuts no slack to workplace conflict


The pandemic-induced telecommuting work teams are not immune to conflict, according to a recent survey of 1,355 workers conducted by the resume-builder company MyPerfectResume.


The survey found that 81% of remote professionals have experienced workplace conflict and that 46% use a work messaging app for their arguments. 


Sixty-five percent of workers reported that they experienced conflict with their co-workers specifically, and 19% reported conflict with their boss, 11% with an external manager and 5% with an employee working at another company.


The top three causes of conflict were a “lack of transparency/honesty about something important,” a “clash of values” and a “false accusation.”


Overall, 36% of the respondents felt that their bosses were too aggressive in their texts and that after enduring rounds of virtual conflict with a co-worker or a boss, 39% said that they wanted to leave or actually left their jobs due to the problem.
