How to Keep Companies and Individuals Safe from Phishing

Culture

By Allen Holman
Whether at home, at work or on the go, 21st century technology allows us to be “connected” to the web at all times. Answering emails, checking social media and browsing the internet on an hourly basis have become common in today’s world, and the span of technology only continues to increase. However, with this high-tech era comes phishing: a new and common gateway for criminals and hackers to steal private information. Phishing is a way that criminals attempt to obtain access or sensitive data such as usernames, passwords and credit card details through a disguised email acting as an invoice, bank statement or password reset notification. Phishing can occur through almost any communication medium, including automated phone calls, social media and email, and can happen anywhere you can be enticed to click on a link, open a document or disclose sensitive information.

Employee Retention

By Wendi Walker-Schmidt
I have spent the last 20 years of my career in the human resources, learning and OD world. In that time I have heard and had many discussions around the question, “What is the employee experience?” Some define it as what an employee receives during their interaction with their career’s elements, while others define it as employee emotions with the technological and physical environment they experience. Additional definitions cite the employee experience as perceptions about the interactions with their organization.

When employees spend time on e-learning, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employee must be compensated for all “hours worked,” including training time.

Can Employee Wellness Programs Cure What Ails Us?

Culture

For years we’ve been hearing the same beleaguered declaration: The cost of healthcare is going up. It’s an understatement that doesn’t come close to reflecting the magnitude of how much costs are climbing. Experts report costs have increased 274 times since 1950. No other sector of U.S. goods or services has experienced such an unbridled uptick. Today, healthcare costs are growing at a much faster rate than inflation, the economy and wages.

Are Employers Really Ready for Work Life Integration

Culture

By Charlla Feller-Davis
For decades, we’ve heard a lot about work-life balance. Employers eager to retain valuable talent were schooled about the many reasons why employees didn’t want to engage in daily rounds of “last soldier standing” to prove their commitment or value. Companies implemented a range of ideas—everything from flex schedules and lunchtime yoga to job sharing and bring your dog to work—in an effort to help employees de-stress and reclaim valuable time for themselves and their families. While these ideas are great, the benchmark has evolved.
