  • "Ban the Box" Was Yesterday - Today It's Salary History
    by Gary A. Chamberlin - November 14, 2018
    The effort to combat gender pay inequity has taken many twists and turns at the federal level. We've all seen reports and data about the difference in average pay between men and women (83%), and the even greater disparity involving minority women (i.e., 53%) when compared to non-minority males. OFCCP and EEOC have been at the forefront of many attempted policy and program measures. Included among these are the OFCCP&...

    by Ann Schueller - November 14, 2018
    Since the onset of low unemployment rates, hiring newly released veterans has been the buzz in the recruiting world as pools of qualified candidates shrink. In the last five years, there has been a plethora of resources popping up, many of them veterans themselves, offering their services to both employers and veterans to bridge the gap of understanding between the two.

  • Worker or Employee?  Affirmative Action Planning in the Gig Economy
    The 'gig economy,' characterized by freelance and temporary contract work, has grown exponentially in recent years. A January 2018 NPR/Marist poll found that, currently, one in five jobs in the United States is held by a contract worker and, within a decade, contractors and freelancers could make up half of the American workforce. This remarkable shift away from the traditional employer-employee relationship has and will con...

  • The Problem with Problem-Solving Leaders
    by Dr. Maynard Brusman - November 8, 2018
    Many employees long for leaders who can solve workplace problems—from flawed systems and procedures to inconsistent policies and managers. They want their leaders to see through the trees and attack forest-sized issues, with the discernment and authority to fix them one by one. While this sounds great on the surface, employees who report to problem-solving leaders cite challenges that dwarf the problems themselves. Or...

  • New Mentoring Trends Help Boost Success in a Multigenerational Workplace
    by Lindsey Pollak - October 24, 2018
    When the concept of reverse mentoring burst on the scene in the multigenerational workplace, it was all about having cool 20-somethings teach the older crowd how to use “the Facebook.” Now most generations are pretty savvy—in fact their takeover of Facebook has sent Gen Z scurrying to Instagram or Snapchat. But that doesn’t mean that they still can’t learn a thing or two from the younger generati...
