Consider telecommuting from Montana

By Eric Whitney, reporter, Montana Public Radio

Most local economic development schemes focus on creating jobs. Many offer incentives to startup companies, or try to lure existing companies to relocate.

But a campaign in Montana is turning that on its head. It's not trying to recruit companies but rather employees to come to the sparsely populated state and telecommute.

David Blackburn works for a financial services firm in Jersey City, N.J. He and his wife both have six-figure incomes, but real estate in the New York City area is so expensive that they have to live kind of far from their jobs. Read more.

Managing telecommuters

By Gabe Duverge, copywriter, Grace College and Theological Seminary

A recent study from the Society for Human Resource Management found 38 percent of employers in the United States allow some of their workers to work from home on a regular basis, up from 23 percent in 2008. This 15 percent increase demonstrates just how quickly telecommuting is taking hold in the work place.

Significant nonprofit financial reporting changes

By Jim Simpson, CPA and director, Financial Technologies & Management

The way nonprofits prepare and present financial reports is about to change. It is the first significant changes in over 20 years. In 2011, the Nonprofit Advisory Committee recommended modification of the 1993 financial reporting mode to the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). In April, the FASB issued an exposure draft that proposed updated accounting standards. The released draft has a comment period that ends on Aug. 20.

So what does this mean for your nonprofit organization?

Before the change is official, you may want to consider formal training for board and staff members. It may be good idea to adopt some of the proposed changes before they are mandatory because they will create more relevant financials and comparable measurements. Read more.
