How Can HR Departments Prepare for Monkeypox?

After the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone’s radar for another potential health crisis is heightened. If you’ve been following the news, you know that Monkeypox is spreading and some have worried that it will become an epidemic.

Top Human Resources Company Saves Business From Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Service

We have all heard the horror stories of a company that is stuck in their Professional Employment Organization (PEO) (or co-employment) contract. PEOs are typically engaged by small businesses for better benefit plans; however, as that company grows, their employees start to feel the negative effects of the PEO.

Initially, a PEO arrangement sounds appealing to an organization that wants to outsource their Human Resources and Payroll. However, a PEO can be extremely complicated as the Employer of Record, running payroll under their tax ID numbers. Additionally, all of the onboarding, employee handbooks and company policies become dictated by the PEO, which unfortunately does not leave the employer any say in how they want to define terms of their own business.

4 Things That Cause Employee Disengagement (And How To Fix It)

In the United States, only about 36% of employees claim to be engaged at work. 15% consider themselves to be actively disengaged at work, meaning that they derive very little satisfaction from their professional roles.
