These include employees who were hired before the employer signed the E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding...

Just jump on the computer, punch in the applicant’s personal information and get a nice, neat report of any criminal records he or she may have. Sounds great, right? It would be, but it doesn’t work that way. Perpetuated by movies, television and other forms of media, there is a common misconception that this is how a criminal background check is done…it’s not. First, it’s important to realize that there is no one, all-encompassing database that gives you this information; not even the FBI database. Relying solely on a national/multi-state criminal record database is extremely risky. Here’s why. The Nationwide Criminal Database Myth ...

A while ago, I conducted a literature search to learn more about the transformation of HR in recent decades. This is part of a future book release, but we’ll speak more of that in future months. What became evident to me was the slow pace of transformation. Even today, with the technology available, HR struggles with transformation. What does it take to transform HR into something which will impress CEOs and CFOs? 1. Acquire Business Acumen: Financial Skills HR has always viewed its role as being an advocate for the people. That needs to change. I’m not suggesting that we forego the people considerations of a business, but decisions in HR need to...

Hi, I am an HR Department of one and will be traveling solo. I work for a small, local nonprofit; therefore, I am attending the entire event on my own dime (travel, lodging, food, and conference). To be able to afford to attend this conference, I have volunteered as a session host for Monday and Tuesday. This gets me in for free all-day for both of those days; however, I arrive on Saturday evening. Does anyone know if that means I can still attend Sunday's Grand Opening evening event??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks! Lacey

For those who have embarked on the HR Analytics journey and are looking to convey information “to the business” or to HR colleagues, a dashboard can be a useful tool. But how do you create a dashboard that people will actually use? I’ve seen quite a few companies create HR dashboards and “push them out” to the other functional areas only to discover that… no-one’s using them! Here are a several golden rules to help you design something of value. 1. Know Your Target Audience. Will this dashboard be for your HR colleagues, leaders of other functional areas or for your executive team? Each of these audiences will have different needs when you begin to...

SHRM Smart Stage!

Be the first person to recommend this.
Many years ago, the Marketing folks at SHRM had a brilliant idea. They used an HR Knowledge Advisor to host one little HR-trivia game show at the SHRM Booth in the exhibit hall at SHRM's Annual Conference . Could he do it? He did it! Boy did he ever do it!! Scores of conference attendees left their vendor-hopping and pen-collecting to see what the riotous laughter was about! They gathered around and watched this guy improvise to create controlled hysteria (I know there's no such thing, but it sounds good), merriment (sounds good, too) and plain old fun, all while reinforcing knowledge about employment law and HR! It was...
