    Hello - 

    We are exploring options for updates to our PTO Policy. I'm looking for new and unique ideas for unused but accrued PTO hours. Some ideas that have been thrown on the table are creating an employee PTO donation program, paying out accrued unused hours towards their 401(k), allowing up to 40 hours of carry over, but losing everything else unused, etc. What does your company do? What exceptions, if any, has your company made due to COVID-19 and having potential increased unused vacation/PTO?

    If your organization is like many others these days, your people are finding themselves working in a very different “normal.” Some may be enjoying the change and flexibility of working from home, while others may be desperate to get back to their workplace. Despite the wide range of situations people find themselves in, there is one struggle they have in common – staying connected with their coworkers, their teams, and their bosses. The connection I’m talking about is more than just communicating updates and instructions with email or even video chat. In fact, there is much more at stake than just making sure people know what to do.

    The roller coaster ride we have all been on for the last couple of weeks has been very interesting, to say the least. We have a barrage of new information assaulting us every day in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic and not only do we have to absorb and apply all of this new information, but also continue initiatives in other important areas.

    Businesses have long been drivers of social change. Across the globe, companies have begun acknowledging vital challenges and injustices such as climate change and pay gaps. Diversity and inclusion is one such defining issue, and, although huge progress has been made towards equality across boundaries of gender, race and sexual orientation, one aspect of D&I is too often neglected: disability.

    I just started at a family run business software technology company that at this moment has an employee count of 56 employees. They did not have an HR department until I started (2 weeeks ago) so as you can imagine everything is scattered and inconsistent. They are no job descriptions in place, an outdated policies and procedures manual, and inconsistent evaluations of performance. 

    What suggestions do you have for an HRIS system? Specifically one that can support employee operations from application submission to offboarding for the size of company I am working for? In my previous position I worked in the public sector and used NeoGov.

    I need a program that allows me to interact with employees, track progress, review performance, and collect data. They do have a payroll program they already use so I am not looking for that at this time, though it would be a bonus. 

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello fellow HR Professionals!

    We are looking at changing our current performance evaluation process and I am gathering information regarding recommendations on different templates and/or systems, including an employee self-evaluation.   Right now, we are just using a standard performance evaluation form in Word format, so any feedback/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance!

    Congratulations goes out to Emily Donegan (Class of 2019), Cathryn Siolka (19), and Julia Platteter (19) as they led the SNC SHRM team to the Wisconsin SHRM HR Games Competition this weekend in Eau Claire.  The HR Games are a Jeopardy-style competition where teams of two or three test their knowledge of HR and management against teams from other schools.  After five preliminary rounds on Friday night, SNC SHRM found themselves seeded 2nd for the semi-finals.  On Saturday, they defeated UW-Whitewater to advance to the Championship match against the 2018 champion, Western Technical College.  SNC SHRM found themselves down by

    400 points after the first set of questions, but with some excellent knowledge and smart board management, Emily, Cathryn, and Julia prevailed to take the crown.
