    Posted by Raj Ananthanpillai on 21 febbraio 2017 at 16:11

    Most companies agree that background checks are critical in ensuring a good hire.

    In employers’ fight to become truly digital businesses and create cultures of innovation, HR teams are on the front line.

  • The Diversity Paradox No One Talks About
    Posted by Vadim Liberman on 20 febbraio 2017 at 15:43

    I recently read an article in which AT&T Chief Diversity Officer Cynthia Marshall said, “It makes good business sense to have an employee base that looks like our customer base.” I suspect most of her peers agree. Her statement is exactly what you’d expect a diversity and inclusion leader to say. It’s about... […]

    Posted by David Creelman on 17 febbraio 2017 at 16:33

    Every HR leader, whether mathematically inclined or not, should be looking for some quick wins in analytics.

  • Why You Should Take All Harassment Complaints Seriously
    Posted by Eric B. Meyer on 17 febbraio 2017 at 15:06

    When I conduct anti-harassment training for supervisors, one of the points I stress is that all complaints of harassment and discrimination — no matter how minor — must be taken seriously. Why? For a few reasons. By addressing harassment right away, it reduces the chances of repeat performances. That’s good for the employee. That’s also good... […]

  • Dilemma of the Month: Holding Exempt Employee Accountable
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 20 febbraio 2017 at 11:17

    Last year, we hired someone to run our small business, and we paid him very well. However, he was always coming in late, taking Fridays off, calling in sick, having car trouble and dentist appointments, etc. He was an exempt employee, so we kept paying him as if he was there all the time. He […] The post Dilemma of the Month: Holding Exempt Employee Accountable appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

  • Swiss Saturday: Reusable Shopping Bags
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 18 febbraio 2017 at 09:40

    The Swiss are big on using reusable shopping bags. They are always for sale–about $2 for a sturdy plasticky-cloth bag and $0.30 for a paper bag. There are times when those plastic disposable bags are available, but they’ve recently started charging $0.05 for those. I read about reusable shopping bags in America and how they […] The post Swiss Saturday: Reusable Shopping Bags appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

  • Expert: IBM Made the Right Move in Forcing Everyone Into the Office
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 17 febbraio 2017 at 11:51

    Last week, IBM told employees that full-time telecommuting was done and everyone would need to work in one of six offices. I strongly denounced this change as short-sighted. Bruce Hall, President and CMO of Eureka! Inventing, disagreed with me. He points out that making long-term company direction decisions based on the current crop of employees […] The post Expert: IBM Made the Right Move in Forcing Everyone Into the Office appeared first on Evil HR Lady.

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 14 febbraio 2017 at 14:05

    Valentine’s Day is upon us, so it’s time to talk about love, romance, and sex at the office. I could give you handy guidelines for what is and what is not appropriate at work, but how boring is that?

  • Bringing a Health Insurance Broker to Your Office: Is It Worth It?
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 14 febbraio 2017 at 11:41

    Being a health insurance broker is all about plans and numbers and sales calls, so you might not think about inviting your broker to explain benefits to your employees. You should rethink that. A report from Harvard University estimated that people spend 1.1 billion hours on health care issues, which is a tremendous burden.

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 13 febbraio 2017 at 15:01

    Tons of job descriptions say they need a “detail oriented person” in them. And lots of us say we are detail oriented when asked but are you really detail oriented? Would you like to find out? I stumbled upon this Attention to Detail Clerical test, and since I’m a sucker for online tests, I decided […] The post Quiz: Are You a Detail Oriented Person? appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

  • Every Business Should Like This Facebook Policy
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 10 febbraio 2017 at 16:20

    The average company offers three days of bereavement leave. Three days. Now, this is probably fine if it’s your 95-year-old grandmother whose funeral will be in the same town where you live and someone else is taking care of all the details and you weren’t that close anyway. For other situations? Three days is nowhere […] The post Every Business Should Like This Facebook Policy appeared first on Evil HR Lady. […]

    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 9 febbraio 2017 at 15:37

    Posted by Michael J. O'Brien on 21 febbraio 2017 at 19:06

    In case you missed it over the long holiday weekend, there’s plenty of trouble brewing over at ride-share app Uber. It’s now so serious that the company hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate whether the company has appropriately addressed discrimination and harassment claims made by female workers.

    With conflict between President Trump supporters and detractors still at a fiery pitch, and with his protested inauguration still in the rearview mirror, this recent post on the Littler site might prove helpful.

Trump introduced today Alexander Acosta, dean of Florida International University College of Law and a former member of the National Labor Relations Board, as his new DOL nominee. Puzder’s nomination had been … Continue reading A Bad Day for Puzder and Unions &rarr […]
