CFO’s Aren’t Hiring Those Under 35

According to CBS News, corporate executives aren’t interested in hiring anyone under 35. The negative reputation of millennials–lack of loyalty, a sense of entitlement, a need for more intense management–is causing CFO’s to look elsewhere, says a study from Duke University and CFO Magazine. Despite many CFO’s acknowledging the tech prowess and creativity of those under 35, executives still look to those above the 35 year mark to build out their teams with those who are more likely to be loyal to the company and contribute to the overall culture of the organization.

Get Rid of the Workplace Post-Holiday Blues 

Now that the holidays are over and your workforce is back to their regular schedule, have you noticed a lack of pep in your employees’s steps? According to Entrepreneur, these feelings of sluggishness could be the post-holiday blues. Entrepreneur identifies four signs of this type of “holiday hangover”, such as a lack of enthusiasm and a decline in the quality of work being produced, along with remedies for each to help get your employees back to peak performance. Simple steps, such as encouraging employees to take walking breaks outdoors and helping them to break large goals into smaller ones, can help to alleviate the wintertime blues.

Returning to Work After an Injury Isn’t a One-Step Process

According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, employees returning from an injury need a transitional plan to get back to full capacity. Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN) reports that this plan should include an evaluation of the person returning while on the job, identifying the employee’s meaningful tasks, and monitoring of the employee’s progress once he or she has returned. ISHN shares these tips and more for both employees and employers.

HR Pro Tip: Bonuses

When did the definition of bonus become something your employees count on and feel entitled to at the end of the year–despite how they performed or how profitable the company was the prior 12 months? Bonuses are supposed to be compensation events that get paid IF and only if certain objectives are achieved. There should be specific measures you can monitor, see, and evaluate. Employing metrics means you can reclaim the bonus event and turn it into something earned versus something taken for granted.
