People will inevitably adapt to the demands that new technologies bring. They say that children born today will never have to learn to drive a car.

Facebook wants to keep its workers close to the office, and it’s willing to pay for it. Sounds great. Why don’t more companies do it?

Of 368 human resource professionals and executives surveyed in Bloomberg BNA’s annual Year End-Holiday Practices survey, 42 percent said that they planned to give end-of-year bonuses, with most employers opting for cash over gifts.
