Mar 29, 2017 It’s not just firms in Silicon Valley that are waiting with baited breath to see how their hiring processes may have to change due to recent changes in U.S. immigration policies. By far, the technology industry is responsible for sponsoring more H-1B visas in the U.S. than any other industry. These visas enable companies offering everything from computer data retrieval services to coding to recruit workers from abroad, with the majority coming from Asia. For technology majors in foreign countries who have plans of coming to the U.S. after graduation, these recent changes can be life changing. And for U.S. based tech firms who have long depended on international recruiting efforts, a major overhaul of both how and where they will source their talent is soon to come. Expedited H1-B Visa Processing Set To End Normally, computer and tech firms sponsoring employees from other nations would be able to quickly fill their ranks by getting visa applications expedited.

The contracts enabled the couple to generate more than US$13.5 million in revenue, according to an FBI statement about the investigation. Official graft is endemic in Thailand and bribery is common for everything from avoiding police fines to securing school places. The military junta that came to power in a 2014 coup has vowed to root out corruption, which has often served as a catalyst for political unrest. But critics accuse the junta's probes of political bias and say impunity continues in a country where the judicial system is easily bent by cash and connections. Thailand's anti-corruption agency announced this month that it was investigating former senior government officials and employees of the flagship airline over allegations they took huge bribes from Rolls-Royce more than a decade ago. The investigation was launched after the UK's Serious Fraud Office announced revelations from its own probe into the engine-maker. — AFP

MUMBAI: Reversing its earlier order, the Reserve Bank today said the bank branches dealing in government businesses need not remain open on April 1 in view of the annual closing business. In its earlier directive on March 24, the RBI had asked all authorised banks to be open on all days from March 25 to April 1, including Saturday, Sunday and all holidays, to facilitate the government's receipts and payments. The departments concerned of RBI were also to remain open on these days. In its revised instructions issued today, RBI said, "On reconsideration, it has been decided that these branches need not be opened on April 1, 2017." In a letter to the Indian Banks' Association, unions AIBEA and AIBOA today said the RBI issued the directive "very late, causing huge resentment" among bank employees. "The RBI is fully aware that March 25 and 26 would be weekly holidays for the banks.

Asana even has a name for these issuesculture bugsand it seeks to squash them as quickly as bugs in the codebase of any other product. For instance, at one point the issue of false empowerment was raised. Asana is structured in a way to give many junior employees a great deal of ownership over decisions related to their projects. However, some younger employees felt that more senior employees were negating their decisions. Asana restructured the way responsibility was scoped among teams in order to make sure that no junior employees felt falsely empowered (i.e., their decisions would no longer likely get overturned by a more senior manager). Rosenstein says he recognizes that a large part of culture is also cultivating a diverse and open-minded workforce. He feels that its important to make sure that employees are aware of their unconscious biases which, left untreated, can lead to breakdowns in effective communication.

Over the last few years, diversity has inched perilously toward buzzword status. Tech companies have taken to talking loudly and frequently about it since 2014 in particular, when Google became the first to make its diversity stats public . In the Trump era, championing diversity has arguably become more commodified than ever, as brands infuse their marketing and messaging with their politicsemphasizing their support for women, immigrants, and minorities. So I wasnt surprised that in conversations with several CEOs and execs, many were quick to cite diversity as something their companies care deeply about. But that doesnt necessarily translate into actionor cold, hard numbers. As the federal government has begun to target individuals on the basis of religion, national origin , and gender identity , businesses are increasingly under pressure to take tangible steps to boost representation in their workplaces and protect their employees from discrimination.

If you think you might want to work at the company where youre interning, heres what to do: Pick The Right Time To Express Your Interest Turns out, theres a sweet spot when it comes to talking with internship supervisors about future work at the company. Seniors should probably request a meeting with their supervisor toward the end of the semester, says Thomas Ward from Adelphi University in New York. Even if you are a star, students sometimes jump the gun by approaching their supervisor prematurely or too early into their tenure. He agrees that its a balance, because you dont want to wait too long before expressing interest. But, in most instances, there is a lead time that organizations need to transition interns into full-time employees. Immerse Yourself In The Company As an intern, youve got a foot in the door and a leg up on the competition.
