More States Bump Up Workplace Protections for Pregnant Women

By Ashley Kaplan

When Jennifer Latowski, a certified nursing assistant at Northwoods Nursing Center, shared with her supervisor that she was pregnant, she was asked to obtain a doctor’s note stating that she had no work restrictions.

Instead, Latowski’s physician issued a 50-pound lifting restriction.

As a result, Northwoods told Latowski she could no longer work for them because they only accommodated restrictions caused from work-related incidents. Latowski filed a wrongful termination suit claiming disability and pregnancy discrimination in Latowski v. Northwoods Nursing Center. Read more…

TLNT Webinar: A Leap Ahead – Succession Planning & Internal Mobility

It may be hard to believe, but all the data you need to understand your future recruiting needs is right under your nose hidden within your existing HR and Recruiting systems, the problem being that they just don’t come together. Equally baffling is the fact that most of the people you need to fill your next big opportunities most likely exist in your business already, but small inconveniences like politics or visibility stop you from taking that advantage. That’s why today’s one-hour Visier sponsored webinar hosted by Bill Boorman will be a clear advantage to anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of joining up their data silos, and the organizations who are making REAL progress in this area. Topics also discussed include an understanding of recruiting/HR systems and the hidden data, internal talent mapping, predicting shortfalls, navigating the politics of internal mobility, and much more!

Please join Bill Boorman, COO of Tru Events,  for a one-hour webinar on Thursday, March 27, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time (2 Eastern).

Weekly Wrap: Flex Work Is Growing, So Why Aren’t More Women Doing It?

Photo by istockphoto.com

Everyone knows that flex work (or telework, or whatever else you call it) has been on the rise, and last year’s prolonged debate when Yahoo decided to get rid of the option for their workforce exposed the strong feelings that so many have about it.

That’s why some new research from the Flex+Strategy Group and Work+Life Fit, Inc. (FSG/WLF) is pretty interesting as it digs into this workforce trend that so many feel so very passionately about.

The key findings were somewhat surprising. Read more…

How Do You Evaluate Contributions to Your Workplace Team?

123RF Stock Photo

This week, in his always excellent Three Star Leadership blog, management guru Wally Bock said this:

When you review performance you should review both team and team member performance. Pay attention to how team members work together and support each other. Be alert for situations where one person pulls the others down or lifts them up.”

Wally couldn’t be more correct in the importance of evaluating contribution to the team. The catch is this: how do you do that effectively? How do you go beyond the anecdotal or the few occasions you may have witnessed (both positive and negative) to accurately capture how well someone truly contributes to (or detracts from) the team’s success?

The High Performance Organization: Is it Being Driven by HR or the CFO?

HPO

When looking at organizations that have started transitioning to high performance using the HPO (high performance organization) Framework, one thing can be noticed: there is at least one person present who is the promoter of HPO thinking in the organization.

That person takes the position of advocate and champion of HPO and makes sure that people get and stay excited about the prospect of becoming a world-class organization. This is a person who doesn’t give up, takes hindrances in stride, keeps at it, and finds great satisfaction in seeing the organization and its people improve over time.

That person, preferably, is placed high enough in the organization so he has enough power to exact resources and time for the HPO transition activities, and to hold other people accountable for their actions during the transition. The big question of course is: who ideally should be the spider of the HPO web? Read more…
