Basic and Meaningful Human Resource Metrics
If it is now accepted that “success in HR” must be considered in more strategic concerns in support of the overall business needs, then, technology must provide proof of progress, innovation, success and yes, failure.Metrics must be provided in support of the roles, responsibilities of different constituencies that require information, senior management, HR operations, HR delivery and the employees themselv..
Handling Sensitive Dress Code Issues
Since employees typically are the first contact made with a company it is often necessary to control that image projected. In the past, employers used dress and appearance policies to help employees work comfortably and safely while still projecting a professional image to clients, customers and future employees. Over the years employers have also used dress and appearance policies to help create an employm..

HR can play a role in creating and reinforcing a corporate culture that reflects a proactive stance toward risk and risk management by including a risk management perspective in all HR activities: recruitment, onboarding, performance management and the rewards systems. HR can also include the risk management aspects in the leadership development programs and in the leadership pipeline.In today’s constantly ..
Conflict Resolution: Win-Win Strategies for Managers and Employees 2020
Since it is impossible to completely avoid conflict, the potential for issues is usually higher in complex social systems where the players compete for resources, like the organization. This becomes particularly critical in ethnically diverse and multicultural work environments, in which not only “regular” work disagreements may occur but in which also different languages, worldviews, lifestyles and ultimat..
Federal Regulatory Update: What is going on with the Alphabet agencies? (EEOC, NLRB, OFCCP, etc.)
Like many people, I did not believe that Donald Trump would win the presidency and I assumed that we would continue to see, at the very least, a continuation of President Obama’s progressive and aggressive agenda. What we ended up with, however, is a new administration that is fundamentally different from the previous one. While there continues to be much rhetoric, it is clear that the Trump Administration ..
Legal Documentation Techniques: If it Wasn’t Documented, it Didn’t Happen
Good documentation just doesn’t happen by accident. Left to our own devices, many of us probably think we have better things to do than write down what the weather was that day, fill out the performance log or, dare I say, update the schedule. After all, there’s work to be done. However, it only takes one time in litigation to change that mindset. In addition, the reality of a dispute resolution forum is th..
Tattoos, Piercing and Cross-Dressing, Oh My!
Tattoos were always associated with sailors, marines, and bikers. Not today. Over the past few decades, there has been real progress towards accepting tattoos and other body art in the workplace. At the same time, highly visible piercings and tattoos still have a negative connotation.The same is not true with those who have gender orientation or gender identity issues. The workplace is still confused and co..
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and its impact on Recruiting
Data protection in recruitment has always been taken seriously, as the breach of employee data protection policy is an integral part of any corporate protocol. However, the introduction of GDPR changed the subject completely by offering an entirely different perspective on the data flows in companies. Thus, making recruitment GDPR-compliant requires much more than a simple change of some policy. GDPR makes ..
Workers Compensation and Covid-19; The Health Issues Connected to Infections From The Workplace
Is coronavirus compensable under WC? The answer to that question is “maybe.” While WC laws provide compensation for “occupational diseases” that arise out of and in the course of employment, many state statutes exclude “ordinary diseases of life” (e.g., the common cold or flu). There are occupational groups that arguably would have a higher probability of exposure such as healthcare workers. However, even i..
Workplace Civility: Respectful Habits Lead to Increased Productivity, Decreased Liability
Civility training is a new term for an old concept. It refers to professional business training related to etiquette, diversity awareness, and cultural sensitivity. Research indicates that inclusion policies are actually the keys to diversity management success. As economies, markets, and industries around the world merge together, the need for thoughtful and perceptive employees continues to grow among glo..
