on Oct 2, 2019 9:43:00 AM By | Damon W. Silver and Catherine R. Tucciarello | 0 Comments |
For years now, state laws have required subject organizations to provide notification to affected data subjects and, in some instances, to state agencies, consumer reporting agencies, and the media, when they experience a “breach” of certain categories of information.  And a growing number of states – including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Texas, and, most recently, New York – have gone a step further, requiring subject organizations to develop and implement “reasonable safeguards” to secure the personal information they collect and use.  With the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California is poised to establish the next frontier in U.S. privacy and data security law.

How Leaders Can Fix Feedback

on Sep 25, 2019 10:30:00 AM By | Mervyn Dinnen | 0 Comments | Workplace Strategic Improvement
Feedback has a branding problem. The very notion of it worries people and raises our defenses. Our brains are often not ready to hear it or give it.

How To Unlock Remote Workforce Engagement

on Sep 11, 2019 10:30:00 AM By | Shane Metcalf | 0 Comments | Workforce Remote Workspace
Working remotely has previously been an exception few companies were willing to make for their people. In fact, up until the early 70’s, telecommuting was unheard of. Office optics determined how you were perceived by your manager and co-workers, and being “absent” meant you were not contributing. But new companies are now rethinking their remote workforce policies along with other cultural and performance strategies. In 2019, the exception is now becoming the rule.

How to Motivate Employees: Look Beyond Money

on Aug 28, 2019 10:01:00 AM By | Valerie Grubb | 0 Comments | Benefits Compensation
  When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute. —Simon Sinek   No matter what size their departments are and how far removed they are from the CEO’s office, all managers are responsible for defining the missions and goals of their departments (preferably keeping them in line with the overall missions and goals of their companies).

We spend a lot of time talking about what organizations need to do in order to be successful: things like candidate experience, employee experience, company culture, etc. One of the prerequisites of developing a world-class organization is having a human resources department that can partner with the business to make it happen.

I ran across an interesting article in The Manifest titled, “How Do Employees Act When Faced with Unethical Company Behavior?” The article talks about how candidates want to work for companies with ethics and will choose not to accept offers of higher pay at companies with a history of unethical behavior. I’m not sure this is a surprise. Or at least it shouldn’t be.
