NLRB Joint Employer Rule Sets Employer-Friendly Standard for Joint Employer Determinations

on Mar 25, 2020 9:30:00 AM By | Mark Kisicki and Erica Shafer | 0 Comments | Legal NLRB Joint Employer
Federal labor agencies have kicked their rulemaking efforts into high gear. One month after the U.S. Department of Labor published a final rule defining (and limiting) when one entity can be deemed the joint employer of another’s employees, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has followed suit. On February 26, 2020, the NLRB issued a final rule, establishing–for the first time–a federal regulation with a clear standard for determining joint-employer status under the National Labor Relations Act. The rule has been in the pipeline for a long time. It was first proposed in 2018, but the NLRB received almost 29,000 comments in response. It has taken the NLRB about 18 months–and nearly 200 pages in the Federal Register–to consider those comments and adopt a final rule. This rule is scheduled to become effective on April 27, 2020.

Induction, Orientation, and Onboarding: What’s the Difference?

on Mar 18, 2020 9:45:00 AM By | Stijn de Groef | 0 Comments | Company Culture Onboarding Policies Welcome
The period that starts when a new hire signs a contract and ends after the first few months on the job can set the tone for his or her success (or failure) within an organization. But though many companies have great new-recruit processes, too often they conflate induction and orientation with onboarding. By engaging mostly in activities that fall into the first two categories while assuming (incorrectly) that they’ve therefore covered the third, those organizations are missing opportunities to engage and delight their ambassadors of tomorrow.

How to Build an Effective Employee Welcome Package

on Feb 28, 2020 9:45:00 AM By | Danielle Freedland | 0 Comments | Onboarding hiring Welcome
Up to 20 percent of employee turnover occurs within the first 45 days an employee joins a new company. The $3,000 to $43,000 price tag for each such departure makes onboarding an essential aspect of HR service and a significant influence on employee engagement and retention. Creating a welcome package for new hires is one way to reduce turnover by helping new hires feel excited about joining the company and calming their nerves by providing clear expectations, outcomes, and goals for their first day. A well-thought-out welcome package can leave a lasting impression and empower new employees in their roles.

on Feb 12, 2020 9:45:00 AM By | Ira S Wolfe | 0 Comments | Recruiting Recruitment Improvement
According to author and TED speaker Simon Sinek, “a worthy rival inspires us to take on an attitude of improvement.” That’s part of what he calls the infinite mindset. This infinite mindset is what Sinek believes differentiates businesses that think ahead versus those that live in the past. “Business is a journey without a final destination,” he says. “The goal is not to win but keep playing.”
