How HR Can Help Employees Through Organizational Change

Posted by Guest Post on Nov 3, 2020 6:15:00 AM

A 2016 study showed that 96% of organizations reported they were undergoing business transformation, but only 47% expected sustainable value from those changes. In fact, 70% of change efforts fail entirely.

For the roughly 44 million Americans rocking a side hustle outside of their standard office hours, banking a few extra dollars every month isn’t just a nicety—sometimes it’s a necessity for getting by. But if you’ve got skills you’ve been dying to put to good use—everything from writing and editing to data entry or tutoring—freelancing can be among the most lucrative side job success stories.

The Costly Employee Classification Conundrum: Exempt or Non-Exempt?

Posted by Allyson Edwards on Sep 22, 2020 1:06:56 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many employers across the U.S. to implement work-from-home policies as a way to help stop the spread of the virus and resume daily business operations.
