As the nation—and world—continues to navigate the many changes brought around by COVID-19, many people are discussing how we can give back to “essential workers” who continue to risk their lives every day to help others.
As companies around the world transition to remote work, employers are re-evaluating every step of the employee experience. One challenge that is top of mind for many? Maintaining employee morale.
Even with all this change and uncertainty, it’s critical to maintain a certain level of normalcy—and celebrate the small wins and employee milestones along the way. One event, in particular, that’s important to celebrate is employee birthdays. And being apart doesn’t mean you and your team can’t do something special to brighten up your colleague’s day.
As we all continue to acclimate to the world of remote work, there are a few factors of the employee experience that HR professionals still have to adapt to this new way of working.
One pressing issue is how to handle employee onboarding in these transitory times. The answer? A remote onboarding program.
In just a few short weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has completely uprooted the way we work. Employees across the country are getting acclimated to working from home, and employers are racing to stay on top of new legislative requirements. Entire industries have been put on pause, unemployment is soaring, and businesses are trying to weather the storm.
Like any company, financial institutions have their fair share of HR challenges. From attracting and retaining top talent to staying compliant, there’s never a dull day working in HR in the finance industry.
Still, as the world of work continues to change, so does finance HR. From embracing technological advancements to prioritizing cybersecurity, finance companies are doing their best to keep up with the latest and greatest while still setting themselves apart as great employers.
Today’s workforce has high expectations when it comes to employee benefits. Top talent expects more than just basic medical, dental, and vision coverage. Fertility benefits, flexible scheduling, student loan reimbursement, child care assistance, and more—many employers are turning to eye-catching voluntary benefits to attract job candidates and keep employees engaged.
Managing people risks and maintaining business compliance are two critical components of the HR function—but both are difficult to master.
From meeting regulatory deadlines to staying up-to-date on employee training requirements, keeping your business compliant can be a complicated and time-consuming endeavor, especially when it isn’t the only thing on your plate.
From an influx of gig workers to an increase in pro-employee regulations, employers have to keep up with the growing demands of the ever-changing work landscape. As new federal and state laws continue to evolve, it’s more important than ever that employers stay on top of deadlines and requirements to avoid costly fees and keep employees safe and happy.
