Week in Review - November 21, 2013


As turkeys and pumpkin pie ingredients fill grocery carts across America, employee privacy issues fill the workplace.  A recent survey shows that younger employees, ages 18 to 25, are more concerned about their privacy in the workplace than their older counterparts.  Meanwhile, some employers are beginning to use surveillance cameras in the workplace to improve safety and efficiency, the way coaches use game film to improve their sports teams’ performance.  But, back to Thanksgiving.  In the holiday spirit, we’re providing you information about apps to help you stuff your turkey and then, once you're stuffed, to get the best deals on your holiday shopping.
