The workplace can be a hard place at times. Human Resource employees often carry the heaviness of the workplace because their role is to care for the company’s greatest asset, its people. This is an amazing responsibility and one that can be difficult at times. Often, HR specialists may be so concerned about the employees of the company that they neglect the care, health, and well-being of themselves. During our time together we will look for warning signs and the threat of when the problems and issues get stacked so high that we are completely buried beneath them.
As we look to better recognize our care and well-being in the workplace, what do we do next? As an HR specialist, even when you can see things are becoming overwhelming, how do you manage through that process? We will look at the cycle of knowing how some things in our lives need to come to an end. As humans we like to hang on to processes, projects, and even employees regardless if they have a negative impact on our lives or even the company because we can’t image life without them. Endings are critical to new beginnings so we will look at the necessity of evaluating our surroundings and knowing when things should come to a successful ending.
Last, is Corporate America overworked? We live in the fastest and highest demand work culture in the world. Would it make sense in today’s workplace to set aside time for employees to rest, refocus, and reenergize? What would that look like for your company? Is a Corporate Sabbatical Policy something you should consider bringing before your management team?

How to Legally and Meaningfully Discuss Criminal History with Applicants
In order to effectively and consistently evaluate the criminal histories of prospective and current employees, it is important that employers consider which criminal offenses are relevant to specific jobs. Additionally, the age and frequency of offenses should also be considered when evaluating relevancy. In this event, we will walk through the process of developing a criminal history relevance matrix, an effective tool for documenting employers’ policies with regard to the impact of individuals’ criminal histories on their employment eligibility.
