MARCH MEETING 

MEASURING CORPORATE CULTURE TO MAXIMIZE HIRING AND PERFORMANCE

Corporate culture is the secret sauce that organizations claim fuels success. Culture is often described as “how we do things around here,” but unfortunately is often measured with a “we know it when we see it” meter. HR is charged with managing it, hiring for it, and knowing when to exit someone who doesn’t fit it. Yet ambiguous and shifting cultural norms make managing corporate culture a challenge at every level in the organization. You need a way to accurately define your corporate culture so you can measure it.

 

Thank you     for sponsoring this month.

DO YOU HAVE A GAP IN YOUR BENEFIT ELIGIBILITY PROCEDURES? ISSUES RAISED BY NON-FMLA REDUCED SCHEDULES AND LEAVES OF ABSENCE

Authors: Tina M. Bengs, Ogletree Deakins

Submitted by: Bill Grob, HR Tampa Legislative Director, Ogletree Deakins

Most employers have procedures in place to ensure that an employee who takes leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), whether as a reduced schedule or an extended leave of absence, retains his or her eligibility under the employer-sponsored health plan. But many employers have gaps in their procedures when an employee’s reduced schedule or leave of absence occurs when the employee is not yet eligible for FMLA leave or after FMLA leave has been exhausted. Typically, the gap in procedures exists when the non-FMLA reduced schedule or extended leave arises from a work injury or as an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
