Securus Technology, a market leader in investigating, correcting, monitoring and promoting public safety, provides solutions regarding civil and criminal justice technology. Apparently, they are expected to release various facts, reports, and findings highlighting Global Tel Link’s (GTL) an inmate communication provider allegations of misconduct and breach of the integrity act. Securus’s report is the first in a series of articles they intend to publish highlighting how GTL’s misconduct and violation of the integrity act.
Securus’s CEO (“Rick”) Smith states that their role in the industry is to provide civil and criminal justice solutions by serving the law enforcers, inmates, friends and family members and the society at large. He expresses his disappointment by GTL for stopping well below the integrity bar that other stakeholders uphold. Instead of focusing on customers best interests, GTL is a lot more focused on making more money thus violating the industry’s mission. To this effect, Securus intends to highlight several facts of systematic misconduct by GTL to shame them for acting below the integrity bar.
The first press release is a 17-page misconduct report against GTL published by Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC) highlighting some of the GTL’s wrongdoings by providing outbound telecom services to the inmates when it served the Louisiana Department of Correction. Some examples of the investigated misconducts include programming telephones to rate calls tariffs than the permitted rates and adding extra seconds to the duration of each call.
As a result, Louisiana’s taxpayers spend $ 1,234,000 more due to the four malpractices. Although PSC’s report is 18 years old, this is not the only potential misconduct against GTL. They continue to engage in these malpractices even after the report was released 18 years ago.

The playing field is leveling, but hasn’t quite obtained that stamp of equality when it comes to women in the professional market place and within the corporate world. Susan McGalla is an example of the women who are changing the face of business, in addition to changing the gender bias that has existed for far too long.
We want to believe that as a society, as the human race we have obtained a level of intellect and common sense that demands that people be judged by their skills, ability and character and not their gender. The truth is, we are getting there. Just as true, however, is that we have not yet arrived. Inequality in pay, the lack of female representation in board rooms and in the top tiers of management are evidence of the miles left to traverse.
Susan McGalla has risen to the ranks of leadership, and in the process has become more than just a role model for other women. Susan’s resume illuminates this success with such positions and titles as, President and CMO for the American Eagle brand, then being promoted to the role of CMO and President of the parent company, American Eagle Outfitters. Most recently that storied football franchise, (yes – football, an epicenter of the male world) the Pittsburgh Steelers announced that Susan McGalla was being brought on board as Director of Strategic Planning and Growth.
Susan McGalla hasn’t just settled for showing other women and the world that gender equality is a smart and right move in the business sector, but has reached out to help other women understand not only what it takes, but how to uncover those talents within themselves to continue bridging the gender gap.
An article from bitsylink, details more about her accomplishments and her role as a woman who has become a successful leader, role model and voice for gender equality. Don’t expect Susan McGalla to speak about this gender inequality as much with words though, as she speaks most loudly as she has proven, by her success and actions.
Office space can be at a premium in certain areas. For those who are looking to start a new business or expand an older one in places like New York City, it can be hard to find the right space for their needs. This is why so many people have come to look for innovative solutions. This is where a solution such as co-working or shared office spaces can be exactly what people need. Shared office spaces can even lead to happier workers as a recent article in Harvard Business Review reveals. The article talks about the many benefits that accrue to those who are able to share work spaces with others.
As the article demonstrates, sharing work spaces can have many important benefits. Workers tend to see their work as more meaningful and less stressful. They have the opportunity to interact with others who are not in the company. This can help them gain important perspectives about the value of their work. Workers can also have more control over the pace of their work. Because such spaces are available for much of the day and evening, they can regulate the amount of work they do and have more flexibility to carry out their work tasks. This can also help them to think up new ways of doing business and new solutions to job challenges. The result is often a happier, more productive, far less stressed workforce with employees who feel they are truly engaged in useful work.
