Laws, Laws & More Laws... Compliance Made Simple
Government fundraising is up. Employer audits and fines are on the rise. US government admittedly avoids the "business of educating employers" and has neglected to update online compliance guides since 2009. Periodicals pummel the faint of heart with dry, ambiguous reading, often containing no intelligible answer. Paid subscriptions regurgitate the same info one can find freely on the Internet. Help is here. Read 6 Steps to Easy Compliance.
Employee Assessment Soars to #1 Cost Savings Toolset...
Employer ROI surpasses 100:1, sometimes 1000:1, when the right assessment resource is in place. Getting the right people doing the right things with proper training drives success. Choose assessments with transparency and obvious job task correlation. Most popular assessments this quarter: sales, time management, leadership, communications, problem solving, customer service and change champion. When selecting instruments and partners, please know that while some boast thousands of instruments, we've screened out thousands which do not attain validity and quality. Be choosy, and consider us an informational resource.

NLRA & Collective Bargaining Under the Microscope
You can't swing a picket sign without striking a collective bargaining rights battle. While not always the case, employees fighting for collective bargaining rights are sometimes ideologically aligned with employer goals... yet do not know it. We are calling upon employers to reduce the "white noise" of terminology differences as with any organizational conflict. Within employers and throughout this debate, better communication of rationale and endgame goals will reduce conflict. Checkpoint definitions. Be certain solicitation policies do not conflict the NLRA covenants. Use communication and incentives wisely to create teambuilding and unified employee engagement. Where an employer cannot terminate an employee for work abandonment, we have a functional problem. Keep it in check.
Problems Are Opportunities...
