9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

A diverse and inclusive workforce is comprised of people of different backgrounds who are valued for their contributions. This can provide employers with a competitive advantage by bringing new ideas, fresh perspectives, and an engaged workforce. For these reasons, it’s important to think about how you hire, treat, develop, promote, and provide benefits to employees and whether those practices foster inclusion or exclusion. Here are some ideas for improving diversity and inclusion at your company: #1: Start at the top. Make sure each manager, senior manager, and executive is responsible for inclusion and hold them accountable during performance evaluations. Discuss the issue during leadership meetings and share feedback from employees.

HRO Today: Making Teams Work

HRO Today: Making Teams Work

In a new article on HRO Today by Amy Leschke-Kahle, vice president of performance acceleration for The Marcus Buckingham Company®, an ADP® company, she discusses strategies to help managers enable their employees to succeed. Leschke-Kahle says, “At work, a team can mean many things. Organizations can have a team of executives or a team of frontline workers. They can have a hierarchical team, a flatter team, or a dynamic team that brings together contractors and full-time employees from disparate groups or practices depending on the project at hand. Whether it’s in the field of hospitality, technology, or on the shop floor, teams are where work lives. But increasingly, more and more work gets done in groups outside of the organizational chart.” She goes on to explain that there’s no universal blueprint of what makes the perfect team—or even what the average team looks like. But there is an X factor in what makes it successful: the leader. And to further this concept, according to ADP Research Institute®’s study Fixing...

10 HR Myths Revealed: Hiring, Pay, Leave, & More

10 HR Myths Revealed: Hiring, Pay, Leave, & More

Employers must follow a number of increasingly complex federal, state, and local laws. Certain myths surrounding these laws can make it even harder to comply. Below, we debunk 10 myths that employers may encounter. Myth: When federal, state, and local laws conflict, the employer gets to choose which one to follow. Fact: When federal, state, and local laws conflict, the one most generous to the employee generally applies. For example, if an employee is covered by the federal, state, and local minimum wage, the employee is entitled to the highest minimum wage among the three. Myth: It’s a best practice to ask about criminal history on application forms. Fact: In numerous jurisdictions, employers are prohibited from asking about criminal history on application forms. In many cases, these laws require employers to wait until later in the pre-employment process, such as after a conditional job offer, before asking about criminal history. While there is no federal law specifically prohibiting employers from asking applicants if they’ve ever been convicted of a...
