What’s Hot in HR

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews, SPHR It’s 1938. Franklin Delano Roosevelt is President. America is unionizing, it’s “depressed,” and there’s a New Deal on the table. Immersed within this monumental piece of legislation was the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA introduced some important wage and hour concepts that had not existed before; all of which […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews, SPHR Nevada is experiencing some impressive economic growth these days. While this is good for our economy, it does present some problems, such as our current labor shortage. One thing we hear over and over again is a cry for help – literally. Once the help is hired, we again receive the […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews, SPHR As Valentine’s Day draws near and thoughts of love come to mind, we usually don’t include work romances as part of our thought process.  Unless, of course, you are either in HR or are dating (or married to) someone in the work place. The statistics are interesting. 38% of workers say […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews, SPHR Is “stupid” a protected class? Hopefully that question hasn’t put you off. This is an actual question I was asked by a member recently. This member was about to increase their number of employees to the next threshold. All the new rules and regulations (“protected classes”)  they were about to be […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews, SPHR It’s that time of year again—the ominous fourth quarter.

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By Amy Matthews, SPHR Compliance. For a myriad of reasons, this is a word that gets mixed reactions from employers. Some find it annoying – a necessary evil.  Forced to comply with all the rules and regulations because “The Man” says they must. Others are leading the charge. Current and accurate Labor and Safety postings?  […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews There’s some chatter lately about changing trends when it comes to managing performance and retention for employees. The annual performance review (with the obligatory raise) is on its way out the door for many companies. Even quarterly reviews are losing some steam. Instead, companies that are in touch with their culture are […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews Is your company leaving candidates with the best image of your organization? Many companies are concerned with their public image, especially in 2018, when we are all so exposed through social media outlets. We worry about a bad Yelp or Google review. Some companies have a strong focus on brand management or […]

WHAT’S HOT IN HR

By: Amy Matthews I once worked with a manager who could never remember his HR-related acronyms.  When it came to FMLA, he called it “LOL WTH.”  While this seems humorous at the outset, it isn’t funny when it comes to actually working within the parameters of the FMLA rules. What is FMLA? Basically, FMLA applies […]
