  • Is There A Good Way To Fire Someone? No, But Don’t Ever Do It By Phone
    Posted by John Hollon on 11 febbraio 2016 at 16:15

    Editor’s Note: As I wind down my stint as Editor of TLNT — yes, I’m going to be leaving next month— I wanted to share some of my favorite posts. Here’s one from September 2011. If there’s one thing that struck me this week about the firing of Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, it’s this:... […]

  • Despite Opposition in Congress, Overtime Rules Will Probably Change in July
    Posted by Eric B. Meyer on 11 febbraio 2016 at 15:11

    By Eric B. Meyer On Feb. 9, over 100 members of Congress signed this letter to U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez to voice their opposition to the new proposed overtime rules, which could go into effect in July. I only have an electronic version of the letter. But, it looks like it was... […]

  • Behind the Big Blow-Up and Controversial CEO Resignation at Zenefits
    Posted by John W. Allen on 11 febbraio 2016 at 13:59

    For the past few years Zenefits, the startup HR technology company, has seemed invincible. Investors everywhere were clamoring to be a part of what was supposed to be the biggest shakeup the health insurance industry had ever seen, apart from the Affordable Care Act. Just last May, the company was able to raise $500 million in... […]

  • Top Countries Where They Lie About Salaries (and Those Where They’re Honest)
    Posted by Zara Pardjinjan on 11 febbraio 2016 at 13:05

    A recent international survey, the Intelligence Group’s Global Talent Acquisition Monitor, asked 64,000 respondents from 45 different countries about their honesty during a job interview. Specifically, they were asked to indicate whether they mention the real salary they earn in their current/previous job, or, choose to overstate it. Not surprisingly, the survey shows that many individuals... […]

  • Want to Really Say Thanks? Make Sure Everyone Truly Gets Recognized
    Posted by Derek Irvine on 11 febbraio 2016 at 12:04

    I came across a recent New York Times Corner Office column with Walt Bettinger. He is the CEO of the Charles Schwab Corporation, and shared a powerful lesson he learned as an undergraduate student. He was enrolled in a business course in his senior year and was laser-focused on maintaining a perfect grade point... […]

  • 6 Tips for Dodging the Flu in Your Open Workplace
    Posted by Audrey Christie McLaughlin on 10 febbraio 2016 at 16:10

    It starts innocently enough when one employee gets the flu. Then, two more come down with it, and before you know it, it seems like everyone is sneezing and wheezing. It seems as though once the flu hits your office, there is no way to avoid it spreading to everyone — particularly when... […]

  • Why Remote Workers Really Makes Sense For Your Business
    Posted by Kevin Mason on 10 febbraio 2016 at 15:11

    Over the past 10 years, the way workforces look have changed drastically. Has yours changed? Do you require all of your employees report to the office and work 8 to 5? If so, you could be missing out on the great potential of remote workers. Remote employees aren’t the right fit for all... […]

  • How Do HR’s Challenges and the Organization’s People Priorities Stack Up?
    Posted by China Gorman on 10 febbraio 2016 at 13:59

    I love great graphics. Great graphics can really make a point. They can help people digest complex data points and make sense out of the numbers. Quantum Workplace’s new report, the State of Employee Feedback, does all of these things. The things I found most interesting about the data, however, was not about the state... […]

  • Small Employers Could Be On the Hook For Health Care, Family Leave
    Posted by John Zappe on 10 febbraio 2016 at 13:05

    Every business that has contractors or temps supplied by another company needs to be alert for the likelihood the U.S. Department of Labor will find a joint employer relationship exists. This is as true for small employers as it is for the largest. A lengthy Administrator’s Interpretation issued last month by the Labor... […]

  • Traits That CEOs and Executives Look for When They Hire
    Posted by Dianna Booher on 10 febbraio 2016 at 12:02

    You may or may not be in the market for a new job. Yet, what executives look for when they staff their organizations suggests as much about the priorities and personalities as the new hire’s own. So if you intend to set up a strategic partnership with them, sell to them, socialize with... […]

  • New Year, New You: Guide to Taking Your Résumé Up a Notch
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 11 febbraio 2016 at 12:32

    A résumé is, first and foremost, a marketing document. It’s not supposed to be your entire life history, and it doesn’t include bad things, just good. Remember marketing. Would Coca-Cola make a commercial that highlighted the sugar content of its flagship product? No? Then don’t put negative things on your résumé either. You probably don’t […]

  • Relocation Repayment and FMLA (another throw to the readers!)
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 10 febbraio 2016 at 12:35

    I have worked for the same company since 2005, and had a solid career with them. In 2015, I was relocated into a position and signed a one-year contract, which should technically end soon. I have multiple reasons to feel less satisfied with the position and to be considering alternatives; however, have been determined to […]

  • The Creepy Passive Aggressive Behavior of One of the Richest Entrepreneurs in the World
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 9 febbraio 2016 at 12:26

    So, it turns out in the early days of Microsoft Bill Gates memorized the license plate numbers of employees so he could know who was in the office. He considered this part of his fanatical dedication to work, but it actually shows a serious lack of understanding about work. Now, I’m not saying that his […]

  • Yahoo’s Sketchy Termination Policy May Land Them in Hot Water
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 8 febbraio 2016 at 12:26

    California is an at-will employment state. (Every state but Montana is at-will.) This means that you can terminate someone for any reason or no reason, as long as it doesn’t violate the law. So, you can terminate someone for wearing mismatched shoes, but you can’t terminate someone for being pregnant. You can fire a pregnant woman […]

  • Dilemma of the Month: Professional Work on Your Personal Cell
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 5 febbraio 2016 at 12:23

    I work at a marketing company and often work long hours. Sometimes issues come up outside of the office, and I frequently find myself using my cellphone (and personal computer) for work — sometimes to field client calls, but often from my supervisors as well. I’ve tried to discuss with my boss the potential for […]

  • My Boss Asked Me to Resign
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 5 febbraio 2016 at 07:50

    I am a middle manager without a union who has been told that because of poor job performance, I would need to step down. My boss had offered me a lower level position that I do not wish to fill as I don’t want to work for them any longer. I asked my boss to […]

  • 3 Things Scientifically Proven to Make You Look Stupid
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 4 febbraio 2016 at 13:23

    The last thing you want as either an entrepreneur looking to build a business from scratch or an employee, looking to build a career or find a new job, is for people to think that you’re stupid. Perceptions are not always reality, of course, and we don’t want people to perceive that we’re stupid when […]

  • Building Health and Wellness Programs That Everyone Can Join
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 3 febbraio 2016 at 12:09

    Health and wellness programs are always a great idea, but not everyone at your office has the same physical capabilities. When you give everyone a Fitbit and offer a prize to the person who walks the most steps, you’re inadvertently discriminating against people who aren’t in good physical condition or who have physical disabilities. If […]

  • Top 100 Companies to Watch For Telecommuting Jobs
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 2 febbraio 2016 at 12:06

    If the idea your commute being a walk down your stairs appeal to you, then you’d probably love a telecommuting job. Sometimes they can be hard to come by, but FlexJobs just released their 3rd annual list of Top 100 Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs, which can give you a start on […]

  • Applying for New Jobs While on FMLA
    Posted by Evil HR Lady on 1 febbraio 2016 at 13:34

    I work in a hospital where we just hired a new boss 15 months ago. She has literally run people off and fired several others. Her expectations are unreasonable. I have been hoping they were going to get rid of her, but it doesn’t look that way. I have been needing shoulder surgery and have […]

  • CFOs Not Just Focused on Numbers
    Posted by Andrew McIlvaine on 11 febbraio 2016 at 15:55

    You might think that controlling costs is the primary concern of the nation’s chief financial officers when it comes to health benefits, but a new survey from the Integrated Benefits Institute reveals otherwise. The survey, which polled 345 CFOs and other senior finance executives at some of the largest U.S. companies, shows that while cost […]

  • Changing Culture, Improving Performance
    Posted by Mark McGraw on 10 febbraio 2016 at 16:00

    New research from the Hay Group division of Korn Ferry describes culture as “the invisible glue that holds an organization together.” HR leaders have been singing a similar tune for years, but the Los Angeles-based executive recruitment firm’s Real World Leadership study seems to suggest that the rest of the C-suite is joining the chorus. […]

  • A Shake-Up at Zenefits
    Posted by Michael J. O'Brien on 9 febbraio 2016 at 17:57

    The news broke earlier this morning that Zenefits CEO Parker Conrad has exited the web-based benefits and payroll provider, and COO David Sacks is taking over his role. Conrad is also stepping down as a director of the company, according to a news release by the company. (The company also named three new directors to its […]

  • Maersk Goes Global with New Maternity Benefits
    Posted by Kristen Frasch on 8 febbraio 2016 at 15:00

    You might say the parental-benefits bandwagon has just charged into the world arena. Copenhagen, Denmark-based Maersk Group announced recently that, starting April 4, it will be implementing a new global guaranteed 18-weeks-minimum, fully paid maternity leave  for all its female employees. Worldwide, the maternity policy would affect more than 23,000 employees. Once implemented in the United States, […]

  • Pay for Performance is Given a Poor Grade
    Posted by David Shadovitz on 5 febbraio 2016 at 19:58

    Employers have long embraced the notion of paying for performance. But are these programs really making a difference? Are they really leading to better employee performance? If we’re to believe the latest survey of 150 companies coming out of Willis Towers Watson, the impact these efforts are having on organizations leaves something to be desired. […]
