A good H.R. Director

Cost of Outsourcing HR

If you had to take a guess about who has one of the busiest positions in a mid-sized company, what would your answer be?  The big boss, i.e. the CEO or President?  Well, guess again.  That position which is stressful and overburdened is that of the Human Resources Director.  There are never enough hours in the day to get everything done and it is the lucky HR honcho who has a staff to help out.  There were already enough policies […]

Social Media at Work

Social Media at Work

You know it starts out innocent enough – a viral video that goes around the internet at the speed of sound.  It soon is the talk at the office coffee machine, and, for those who’ve missed it, no less than a dozen people hustle back to their respective work stations to forward it along posthaste so our co-workers can see it personally.  As an employer it is your job to be aware of the latest social media trends in the […]

Conflict Between Employees

How to Deal With Conflict Between Employees in the Workplace

Conflict is just a fact of life.  Even when we were toddlers, it seems we had issues and were verbal about what we didn’t like.  We argued with our siblings about our possessions and our “standing in the family”… even though being the oldest didn’t always trump other factors.  Things didn’t change once we got to school either – there was always something to whine about it seems.  No two people are alike and we are not cut from the […]

Can Employees Refuse to Work on a Federal Holiday?

The last bite of pumpkin pie has been enjoyed and the mouth has been duly dabbed with a napkin.  The cook looks around the kitchen table with a smug feeling of satisfaction, knowing that everyone has enjoyed their Thanksgiving Day feast.  She knows that soon the men will meander into the den to watch the football game while the women will don aprons and begin the massive clean-up process.

Presidential Election

The Presidential Election and The Workplace

Chances are if you work in a company, business or even a store, that water cooler talk is always prevalent in the office.  Especially true when there is some sort of a presidential election going on like there is right now.  People always want to chime in as to who they want to win, think should win, or what their different outlooks are in terms of the election, their political choices, etc.  People often talk about all sorts of things […]
