Rapid change is a major challenge in every business, but it also creates the opportunity for growth, innovation and emerging leaders to step up. In today’s quickly shifting environment, workplace leadership is more important than ever. To effectively institute changes, organizations should identify talented leaders who understand the psychological journey of front-line workers and are up for the challenge to embrace the new.
With organizations around the country rapidly implementing change management initiatives, why is now the right time to identify and develop emerging leaders in your workplace?
In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is joined by Cloud and Melo to discuss:
AJ Griffin, Paycom’s director of government and community affairs

With major legislation already passed, organizations must act now to ensure continued operation and compliance. On March 27, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law. Among other provisions, employers may now elect to delay payment of their federal payroll taxes, and delay the deposit and payment of their Social Security taxes.
A week earlier, on March 18, Congress approved the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Effective April 1, the FFCRA gives American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide COVID-19-impacted employees with paid leave, among other provisions.
What can your organization do today to ensure compliance?
In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters talks with AJ Griffin and Brian McManus to discuss:
Steve Boese, HR Technology Conference program chair and HR Happy Hour podcast co-host
According to the World Economic Forum, 54% of employees expect to need upskilling or reskilling by 2022. One of the primary challenges facing organizations as they embrace the digital transformation is the gap between the limited supply of people with the right technology skills and the growing demand for talent to fill new and changing roles. To find a solution, organizations have to think differently about talent and reskilling their workforces – and embrace more flexible approaches to finding and developing the talent they need in 2020 and beyond.
With the McKinsey Global Institute predicting about 14% of the workforce will have to change careers by 2030, are your organization’s learning, development and upskilling initiatives ready for the growing demand?
In this episode of HR Break Room®, Boese rejoins host Caleb Masters to discuss:
Joe Callender, Ernst & Young executive director of quantitative economics and statistics

With the cost of manual HR tasks rising, what is keeping organizations from making the move to self-service technology? And how can incorporating HR technology streamline processes to achieve efficiencies?
In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters talks with Jennifer Kraszewski, Paycom’s vice president of HR, followed by Ernst & Young’s Joe Callender and Ken Nagle to discuss:

A typical organization has undergone five major companywide changes in the past three years, according to Gartner, with nearly 75% expecting more transformation in the future. Even workforce demographics have recently changed, shifting to a millennial and Gen Z majority.

You know that everything your employees do has a cost. But do you know where you’re paying twice for them to complete the same task? Do you know about the unnecessary administrative burden that keeps HR from creating and implementing company strategies, engaging with employees and addressing critical workforce issues? Many paths exist to help you avoid areas of profit drain, with employee usage of HR technology serving as your compass.

An International Data Corporation study found that 85% of enterprise decision-makers say they have two years to make significant progress toward a digital transformation or they will fall behind competitors. With Ernst & Young reporting a cost of $4.39 for every point of manual HR data entry, and workplace technology expectations of today’s employees shifting to a more consumer-friendly experience, the cost of performing HR tasks without self-service tech has never been more evident.
How can HR create a better employee experience and lead a digital transformation that benefits the bottom line?
In this episode of HR Break Room, Boese joins host Caleb Masters to discuss:
Jenn Lim, Delivering Happiness CEO and co-founder
Low employee engagement costs U.S. organizations up to $550 billion annually, according to Gallup. And with Gallup also reporting highly engaged teams generate 21% greater profitability, fostering an organization of happy people is more important than ever.
How can organizations meet the expectations of today’s top performers to create a workplace full of engaged, happy employees?
In this episode of HR Break Room, recorded at the Society for Human Resource Management 2019 Conference & Exposition, Lim joins hosts Caleb Masters and Dickens Aubourg to discuss:
According to Pew Research, 92% of Gen Zers report going online every day, and 24% say they are online almost constantly.

Louis R. Lessig, Brown & Connery, LLP partner
On March 7, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed a rule that boosts the salary threshold at which workers are eligible to receive overtime, making a major change to employee exemption criteria under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
If finalized, the rule will extend overtime protections to more than a million currently exempt workers making less than $35,308 per year. It also would represent financial and operational challenges for employers, who will have to evaluate how their employees are scheduled and paid, in order to mitigate labor costs and exposure under the FLSA.

Do you know where you’re paying twice for employees to complete the same task – or even to correct it when it was completed incorrectly? Everything employees do for your organization has a cost: $4.39 for every data entry, according to Ernst & Young research. By giving your workforce direct access to their employee data, HR no longer has to spend their day on duplicated tasks, allowing them to focus on what they are most passionate about: people-based initiatives.
