Travel Smarts: Your New Excuse for a Sabbatical

TRAVEL SMARTS

Your new excuse for a sabbatical in Paris? It'll make you a superstar employee. When researchers presented scenarios that required out-of-the-box problem solving, a majority of those who zeroed in on the best answers had spent some years living in another country. What's more, a recent study found that former expats were more likely to be promoted. Explains Adam Galinsky, professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, "When abroad, you're forced to adapt to a local culture" and fit in—you're exercising your brain by thinking about cultural norms and how to adapt to them. What better excuse for having that after-dinner fromage?

American Idle: Why Turning Off Your Computer Is a Must

Nearly half of all U.S. workers leave their PCs on overnight. Here, three urgent reasons to turn off before you head out:

1. Hackers spend their waking hours prowling for vulnerable computers. Don't assume your firm has up-to-date security—a third of small businesses don't.

2. Your computer is a carbon-spewing beast. Computers left on standby will emit 20 million tons of carbon dioxide this year—roughly the same amount as 4 million cars.

3. Powering down may save your job. U.S. companies waste $2.8 billion annually keeping computers on after hours—in tough times, that's a heck of a lot of salaries.

My boss took one look at me and, in front of everyone, ordered me to go home and change. From then on, I came to work looking like the perfect Brooks Brother."
