MODERN EMPLOYER: Employee burnout, exit retaliation, emergency leadership absences and more in this month’s roundup

Posted on: December 6th, 2017 | Category: hiring process, How To Hire Good Employees, Human Resources, MODERN EMPLOYER, Our Blog

The last four weeks or so have been filled with employer-focused news and events, as tax and employment law changes became Congress’s prime focus, the start of holiday season reminded us about the effects of employee burnout and Twitter dealt with a very public exit retaliation issue focused on the president of the United States. On a personal note, our president and CEO shared her own experience with emergency succession plans when a family crisis lead to her unexpected leave of absence this past August. We hope it helps other business owners keep their workforces prepared for emergencies.

We’d also like to remind you as 2017 winds down that our HR specialists are here to help you with your 2018 workforce planning and budgeting in ways that can have a huge positive impact on your workforce—and your bottom line.
