Creating Your Leave Benefits Package

Vacation and leave benefits are a part of most employee benefit packages, but there
s a wide variance in the how its given, how much is given, and the methodology behind it all. With summer here, your employees are likely to begin cashing in on theirs (or at least taking time away), which makes this the perfect time to evaluate your current policies and make sure theyre up to par.

Vacation and Leave Benefits aren’t Mandatory, But You Should Offer Them

There is no federal law that requires employers to give employees vacation leave, according to the Department of Labor. Click here to read more.

SHRM16 Review

The SHRM Conference is over, but there is a lot of knowledge and swag to take back to the workplace after an epic week in D.C.

The Keynote Speakers

The keynote speakers were inspirational and thoughtful. From Amy Cuddy and our presence to Sal Khan and using education not only to learn, but as a weapon against the dangers of this world. We also need to pay attention our labor force, as they do most of dirty work by building the product as Alan Mulally and Mike Rowe remind us.

Finally, if you like it or not, our government plays a huge role in our workplace and this being a Presidential election year, it was good to hear insights from Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson of the candidates’ views. Click here to read more.

SHRM16 Final Day Recap

This is the last day of SHRM16 and before everyone goes, we have a few more sessions to talk about.

Sal Khan

Sal discussed how Khan Academy started and how it became one of the best nonprofits in the United States. SAT scores have improved through the Khan Academy training. In addition, it has the best atmosphere where you pay enough for new employees come in and the mission takes care of itself. The Khan Academy already has a huge influence in the world, that enemies are scared.

SHRM16 Day 3 Recap

Day 3 is the most frantic of the SHRM Conference as this is the last full day of the conference and the last day of the Expo.

Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson

Politics are involved in this discussion, but it is necessary in HR to understand the nuances of politics because several of the bills passed do affect what HR does in their company. Both agree that while Hillary knows what she’s doing, she doesn’t open up of her interest and hobbies. On the other side of the spectrum, Donald Trump is the complete opposite.

SHRM16 Day 2 Recap

This is the first full day of SHRM16 and there are a lot of things going on. Here’s what we saw.

Amy Cuddy

The keynote speaker discusses presence in a variety of ways from our tone to our body language. The key takeaway is expansion equals power. That’s why she wants daughters to learn how to sit up straight and be confident on who they are. No wonder Amy has the second most views on TEDTalks.
