FTC Disclosure

We at Workified hold an editorial standard to bring you the best news, articles, tips, and stories of inspiring work spaces from around the world. In this editorial standard, we’re committed to full transparency with our readers with respect to our relationship with advertisers, sponsors, and affiliate programs. We are also in full compliance with the Federal Trade Commission’s policies for media disclosure.

This online magazine is not primarily financially driven. That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

Or if we wore a free t-shirt from one of our sponsors, and it showed up in one of our article photos…we would need to disclose this.
