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”.

Because it’s cooler near a water cooler, a surge of workers admit they want to go back to the office to save money on energy and internet costs, according to a survey.

Coupon site CouponBird surveyed 2,809 employees nationwide, finding that “while working from home means many employees have been able to save on commuting amid sky-high gas prices, having a home office certainly isn’t free.”

In a state-by-state comparison of those seeking to return to the office, between 15% of workers in Washington and 67% in Oklahoma are admitting they miss the free amenities. Overall, 35 states fell in the 30% to 60% range.

Among rising energy costs for air-conditioning or heating, internet, printing amenities, stationery, groceries and other home office necessities, working from home isn’t a money-saver, CouponBird found.
