    Posted by Robin Hardman on 24 febbraio 2017 at 14:04

    I don’t know much about the massage industry, but it occurs to me it must be riding high these days. Everywhere I look, companies are providing employees with on-site massages, or covering massage therapy in their insurance, or both. Those goofy-looking massage chairs lurk in the corners of nearly every conference I attend.... […]

    Posted by Sophia Brooke on 23 febbraio 2017 at 16:05

    Mobile learning (or m-learning) is much more than enabling users of your LMS to access existing course materials via smartphones and tablets. It is a rethink of how and when learning is managed by your learners and employees. M-learning, also called micro-learning, empowers employees to pick suitable times to learn, and gives them... […]

    Posted by From DisruptHR on 22 febbraio 2017 at 15:35

    “Advertising is a tax you pay for being unremarkable.” Randy Ross, PhD, didn’t say that. Geek Squad founder Robert Stephens did.

    Bullying is not only a huge emotional drain on an individual, it’s a huge financial drain on businesses. It’s easy enough to put a stop to it–bullies need victims and they need bystanders to ignore their bullying, so if we don’t put up with bullies, they don’t have anyone to bully and the problem is […] The post Study: Bullied at Work?

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
