There’s natural tension between performance and ethics. Push too hard on the numbers in a dysfunctional environment and creative things happen. Revenue gets counted in imaginative ways. Customer satisfaction data gets massaged. Orders are shipped with known errors just to be able to book them. (Famously, years ago a Colorado company literally shipped bricks in boxes rather than computer parts to book the revenue and then quickly recalled them. The executives went to jail.) By Todd Ordal

It’s important for employers to consider the benefits of hiring an intern while also considering the time and dedication it takes to making an internship successful for both the student and their business. While making copies and coffee might be tasks that need to get done, it’s important to not limit an intern to this type of grunt work. Provide them with the opportunity to make a real contribution to the team. By Sue Wolf
