5h ago
It’s been over five decades since the Holmes-Rahe stress scale recognized the impact of life events on a person’s stress level, and the correlation with physical wellness and well-being. Although more recent research has refined the original stress index, it remains uncontroversial that navigating a life event affects every pillar of a person’s well-being (physical, emotional, social, financial, etc.). Major life events can include crises such as bereavement, divorce or separation, or illness; they can also include happier (but still taxing) events such as marriage or welcoming a new family me ..read more

HR Daily Advisor Blog
by McKenzie Meade, Attorney, Lehr Middlebrooks Vreeland & Thompson, P.C.
5h ago
Computer technology company Dell has made headlines for its new work-from-home policy. According to the policy, fully remote employees will no longer be eligible for promotions. There is an exception, however, for hybrid workers (i.e., those who spend three days a week in the office). Unsurprisingly, the policy has sparked debate and confusion over the future of remote work—both at Dell and other companies. Dell’s policy seems to contrast with the growing trend of companies embracing (and some even preferring) remote work. Further, any policy facially limiting promotions can’t be good for rete ..read more

HR Daily Advisor Blog
by Tammy Binford, Contributing Editor
1d ago
Few would argue that the way people work has changed. The COVID pandemic made clear that organizations don’t have to always gather employees together in an office to get work done. Indeed, advances in technology make communication and collaboration possible when workers are nowhere near each other. But even though employers were relieved that work-from-home arrangements kept them going during the pandemic, many now long for the days when everyone was in the office. Remote work—good as it is—isn’t good enough, many employers say, and they’re eager to bring people back. The question is: How? Wh ..read more
