We are approaching Valentine’s Day and the risks that go with it.

When I conducted some research with Millennials I found that flexible working was vital for any modern employee, with 91 percent saying flexible working was important and 92 percent saying they wanted the option to work from home. Interestingly however, 66 percent said they would prefer to work more in the office than at home and 0 percent saying they would want to work exclusively from home.

When it comes to hiring bias in America, some of the groups often targeted include older workers, obese people, and people with a criminal record.  

SHRM decided to try and make an impact and help those with criminal records get hired with their new initiative called: Getting Talent Back to Work.

At many small companies and startups, the human resources department consists of one person – a “generalist” who must do it all.

The new year brings many people beginning their search for a new career. The field of HR is not immune to that. I receive more networking requests from HR practitioners at the start of a new year than any other time. Most of them reach out because they are on the hunt for something new and wonder if I can help.

Something has been truly puzzling to me lately. In the swirl of events, there seems to be a larger and larger focus on upheaval and dismay versus anything positive. I am not naive and ache for the constant wave of tragedy that fills every form of media. Honestly I do take time to step away and reflect just to break the pattern.

Nearly 700,000 people are released from prison each year and are locked out of the job market. Those who have served their time should not be “re-sentenced” by employers, especially when businesses are experiencing a human capital crisis.

Last month, Congress and the Trump Administration passed and signed into law the bipartisan First Step Act, improving rehabilitation and re-entry opportunities for thousands of incarcerated men and women.
