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”.

Career anxieties: Everybody’s got ’em

career anxiety

A new survey finds that fear appears to be as common in the workplace as a paycheck.

A recent online survey of 1,039 workers, conducted by the job and resume website, found that 87% admitted they suffer from work-related fears and that 81% admit that their fears and phobias have affected their job in negative ways.

While 25% have never sought help to overcome their anxieties, 57% say they would be comfortable talking to their manager. That said, 80% believe having fears and phobias is something to be ashamed of.

The “phobias” pointed out in the survey included making decisions, taking responsibility, public speaking, getting fired, making a mistake, being disliked by co-workers or a boss, or not being able to handle the workload.
