Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Job descriptions can help you identify the essential functions of the job and the qualifications needed for a role. They can also help you set clear expectations with employees, evaluate performance, make compensation decisions, identify training needs, handle requests for reasonable accommodations, and make exempt vs. non-exempt classification decisions. Here are six guidelines for developing effective job descriptions: #1: Be consistent. To help make valid comparisons between jobs, use the same format for each job description. Generally, this includes: Job details: job title, supervisor’s title, exempt vs. non-exempt classification, a brief summary of the job, and the date the job description was created or last revised. Essential functions: job duties that an employee must be able to perform with or without a reasonable accommodation.

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Are you required to pay employees for time off on a holiday? Are they entitled to premium pay if they work on a holiday? What happens if a payday falls on a holiday? And what are the overtime and tax implications of year-end bonuses? Below, we address these and other common questions about holiday pay and bonuses. Company-Observed Holidays: Unless obligated by contract or agreement, private employers are generally not required to provide paid holidays to non-exempt employees (those entitled to minimum wage and overtime). However, if your company closes on a holiday, exempt employees (those who meet specific salary and duties requirements) must generally still receive their full pay, as long as they work any part of the workweek.

Why Businesspeople Should Learn a New Language

Why Businesspeople Should Learn a New Language

By Rosetta Stone Enterprise and Education – ADP Marketplace Partner Recently, the UK version of the Huffington Post blog published a list of eight reasons why you should learn a language. Although the list was directed at post-secondary students, some of its insights can be applied to the world of business. We’ll start with cognitive benefits. It seems as if the scientific community keeps building the case that bilinguals experience brain-strengthening benefits compared to monolingual cohorts. If you want to stay sharp throughout your career, including staving off the effects of dementia, learning a language is a great strategy. The list talks a lot about culture. The cultural competency gained through learning a language is just as valuable to a career as the language skills themselves. Understanding the people and places you are targeting is a great way to make a positive impression on clients, coworkers, and other colleagues. Then there are the practical benefits to a career. Bilingualism is one of the most sought-after skills in the marketplace....
