Employee Morale: 7 Warning Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

Employers strive for a fair and equitable workplace to help attract and retain employees, drive productivity, and comply with federal, state, and local laws. When employee morale begins to suffer, the signs aren’t always obvious. Here are seven warning signs to watch out for: #1: Increase in turnover. Employees who feel they are treated unfairly are more likely to quit and seek employment elsewhere. Monitor turnover and conduct exit interviews to find out why employees are leaving. Use this information to identify changes you can make to improve your work environment and limit future turnover. #2: Vague exit interviews.

To encourage employees to be forthcoming, reassure them that their honest feedback will help with workplace improvements and that their exit interview report will remain anonymous.

Marcus Buckingham Shares How to Start Strong at Work in 2018

As we kick off the New Year, many people are thinking about their career goals and how they’ll achieve them in 2018. According to Marcus Buckingham, the leading expert on talent at work and co-head of the ADP Research Institute®, it’s time to create a work environment that empowers people and helps them develop their strengths. Marcus recently spoke with the hosts of Nasdaq’s TradeTalks and Cheddar about how work today is making people feel disempowered and what companies, managers and employees can do to change that. Nasdaq TradeTalks host Jill Malandrino interviews Marcus Buckingham, co-head of the ADP Research Institute. Marcus said when you consider recent engagement pulse survey data, it shows that only 26 percent of employees said they had a chance to use their strengths at work today: That’s a travesty. Too many companies operate on the principle that what is unique about each employee needs to be fixed. According to Marcus, employers need to change by being super interested in each person’s uniqueness and what...

Your best defense is to file your taxes early to prevent a fraudster from doing it before you. Be aware of―and don’t fall for―scams like phone calls or phishing emails about your refund, a problem with your filing, or requests for more information. This IRS video does a good job of summing...
