我们已经正式进入了假期,并且在新年的距离之内。正好赶上假日匆忙,沃尔玛采用了一个预测的调度系统,这是零售巨头的一个重大举措,可能有助于为其他零售雇主树立标准。最高法院在一致投票中裁定支持消防员,在过去的五年中,工作压力持续增加,雇主对与亚马逊的HQ2在已经紧密的人才库中竞争时感到震惊。这就是我们在本月版本的人力资源综述中所涵盖的内容,这是一群新闻人力资源专业人员需要知道的收藏。

沃尔玛采用预测调度系统,为员工提供一致性和灵活性

沃尔玛announced它采用了一种新的预测调度系统,该系统可以每周最多节省八个小时的商店经理,并为其员工提供更可预测和灵活的时间表。该应用程序称为“我的沃尔玛计划”,允许员工查看自己的时间表,与同事交换班次以及接收毫无用处的轮班。该应用程序旨在为员工提供更多的时间表,并允许员工提前计划自己的生活,而不必担心安排不一致之处。

沃尔玛的应用程序与所谓的“核心小时”的调度方法一致。按时间表工作时间表工作的员工将能够在13周内进行同一每周轮班工作。除了对员工的一致性和灵活性外,沃尔玛(Walmart)认为,新的调度系统将帮助商店经理花费更少的时间进行调度,而与员工和客户一起在销售场上更多的时间。

虽然立法在预测调度far from being a widespread practice in the U.S. (Oregon is the only state with legislation requiring certain employers to use predictive scheduling), local governments in cities like San Francisco, New York, and Seattle are setting new standards for employers by adopting local laws around the scheduling method. Employers in the retail and food service industries, in particular, should keep a close eye on legislation surrounding predictive scheduling. While these laws help protect workers, more employers are beginning to see the advantages to their businesses surrounding productivity, morale, and turnover.

最高法院在年龄歧视案件中进行一致投票

在一致投票中,U.S. Supreme Court ruled在针对莱姆蒙山消防区的诉讼中,两名亚利桑那消防员都赞成。消防员当时是两名高级机组人员,声称他们是根据年龄被解雇的。莱蒙山消防区认为,由于缺乏参与志愿者的任务,员工被释放了。除了他们的论点外,消防区还声称,《年龄歧视法》不适用于他们,因为他们当时有13名雇员被释放。他们认为,这使他们远低于私营部门的20人门槛。

While the Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) covers private-sector employers with 20 or more employees, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in a statement that the ADEA covers state and local governments without regard to the number of workers they employ. This comes from, as Ginsburg noted, the 1974 amendment that says the term employer “also means a State or political subdivision of a State and any agency or instrumentality of a State or a political subdivision of a State” without any numerical threshold. Knowing your rights and responsibilities as both an employer and employee is valuable in maintaining proper workplace compliance and knowing how to respond when things don’t go as they should.

Survey shows an increase in work-related stress over the last five years

美国的工人受到压力,这已经不是什么秘密了,但是现在我们比以往任何时候都更加压力。一个Korn Ferry的新研究揭示工人比五年前更加压力。这种压力的第一触发因素?老板。组织变革(新的老板或部门变更)也会导致压力升高。该研究还发现,有超过四分之三的受访者表示,他们的个人关系受到工作压力的负面影响。三分之二的报告称,由于工作相关的压力而失眠。

Korn Ferry高级合伙人丹尼斯·巴尔茨利(Dennis Baltzley)建议雇主使雇员的目标清晰可实现。巴尔茨利说:“有一个古老的格言,如果你想做一些事情,问一个忙碌的人。”“尽管大多数专业人士都在奖励和具有挑战性的任务方面蓬勃发展,但至关重要的是,他们保持工作/生活平衡至关重要。雇主应该注意创建一个为员工提供明确,可实现的目标的工作环境。”

When employees are stressed to the point of losing sleep, it’s not just productivity that slumps. This can have an effect on your entire workforce, leading to low engagement and turnover. But it’s not just the monster bosses and micromanagers causing stress.Other studies showa lack of proper training and feeling overwhelmed with other tasks keep managers from performing adequately in their leadership roles. To prevent turnover and reduce stress in the workplace, it’s important for employers to focus on培训和发展经理对于他们的角色,他们可以帮助员工向他们报告。

HQ2的决定将为纽约和弗吉尼亚带来约50,000个新工作

On November 13,亚马逊正式宣布we’ve been waiting for: the location of HQ2(s). In a press release, Amazon said it will “invest $5 billion and create more than 50,000 jobs across the two new headquarters locations, with more than 25,000 employees each in New York City and Arlington.” In addition, Amazon also announced its new Operations Center of Excellence would open in Nashville, bringing more than 5,000 jobs to Tennessee.

亚马逊的创始人兼首席执行官杰夫·贝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)认为:“这两个地点将使我们能够吸引世界一流的人才,这将帮助我们在未来几年内继续为客户发明。”

亚马逊和杰夫·贝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)的好消息,但是我们其他人呢?如果您的公司在与亚马逊和Google的类似池中争夺人才(他们也announceda New York expansion), you may be wondering how your company can measure up? Katie Bardaro, Chief Economist at PayScale, recommends employers determine the overall level of employee satisfaction and ensure employees are being paid at or above market value.

"In today's tight market, attracting and retaining people is a core strategic initiative for many organizations, but might become even more imperative for companies who find themselves competing with Amazon in the new year," said Bardaro. In the candidate’s market, it’s more important than ever to ensure your organization is not only offering competitive wages and benefits but also an有吸引力的员工经验夸耀一个solid company cultureand a transparent company mission.

国税局将表格1095-C和过渡救济表延长了截止日期
