From somewhere within overstuffed filing cabinets of an unnamed office come two terrifying tales. The first story investigates a haunted onboarding experience caused by excessive paperwork, while the second explores an infestation of manual processes so creepy, your skin will crawl. Luckily, these HR nightmares can have a happy ending when the right HR technology comes into play.

In this special Halloween episode of HR Break Room, Caleb and Chelsea share “HR Nightmares” that cover how:

  • a poor onboarding process can negatively impact your new hires
  • manual processes could slow your organization
  • HR technology can help protect your company

Coffee remains an integral part of most organizations. In fact, a recent Workonomix survey discovered that 80% of adults consume caffeine every day. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the average intake is 200 milligrams or about two 5-ounce cups of coffee a day. Employees continue to be more passionate about their caffeinated beverage choices than ever before.

To celebrate the recent National Coffee Day, HR Break Room sits down with a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee to discuss:

According to a recent study by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, more than 81% of college-educated millennials have at least one term debt, but only 24% can demonstrate basic financial knowledge. With such a need, how can organizations use financial education programs to recruit top talent and engage employees?

In today’s episode, Mihir Desai, author of The Wisdom of Finance, joins HR Break Room to discuss:

  • why financial literacy is so important to today’s largely millennial workforce, even if they don’t realize it
  • the benefits of having financial literacy programs available to employees
  • how these programs can benefit employee recruitment and engagement initiatives
