Forget the ping pong tables and pizza Fridays … Employees don't really care about those kind of perks. A new LinkedIn survey found that what keeps employees at companies for five-plus years are benefits like paid vacation, parental leave, and health insurance. 44 percent of respondents said those were the benefits that kept them at their current place of business. Perks like food, game rooms, and gyms are nice … but only 19 percent said those kind of perks keep them at a company. (Fast Co)

                       

No order in the court … A new study from the University of Arizona found that people are guilty of sexism in the courtroom. The study found that participants, both male and female, viewed angry male attorneys as "commanding, powerful and competent." Angry female attorneys on the other hand, were seen as "shrill, hysterical, and ineffective." ASU professor and study author Jessica Salerno said, "A good attorney is expected to show traditionally male characteristics in court -- anger, aggression, power. But what's happening is that men benefit from this, while we are penalizing women for showing these same characteristics. We watch courtroom dramas where lawyers are expressing emotion, and there are fireworks in the courtroom. People expect attorneys to express themselves this way. This expectation sets men up well for success, but for women in backfires." (Independent)
