A holistic benefits plan is at the top of the wish list for today’s employees—here’s how to create one that stands out.
By Marta Chmielowicz
In today’s mobile and ultra-connected world, the line between personal and professional lives is often blurred. The days of a traditional nine-to-five job are long gone. Employees across all generations are electronically tied to the office and have the ability to work outside of traditional hours. As a result, some organizations are playing an active role to ensure that their employees remain happy and healthy in all facets of their lives.

Payroll complexity remains a major challenge for multinational companies expanding into new international markets.
By Marta Chmielowicz
Payroll today is about much more than just paying employees. It is about ensuring that their personal data remains secure while navigating ever-shifting legislation and privacy regulations, unstandardized solutions, changes in workforce structures, and rapidly advancing technologies.

Today’s wellness programs benefit both employees and organizations alike.
By Lynn Herrick
HR executives understand the biggest asset to any company is its people. And the biggest asset to employees? Their health and well-being. Nowadays, employees are placing even greater value on taking care of their mental and physical health, which is why it makes good business sense for organizations to ensure that employee wellness is a top business priority. The numbers don’t lie: A study from Willis Towers Watson found that a healthy, happy workforce can reduce overall business costs by more than $1,600 per employee, driven by a decreased need for taking time off for injuries or unplanned sickness. On the other hand, not having a workplace wellness program can be incredibly costly considering the potential risk for high turnover, employee absenteeism, and decreased employee morale.
Customizable benefits are key to engaging, retaining, and motivating millennial employees.
By Bradd Chignoli
Millennials have become the largest generation in the labor force, making up more than one-third of the total workforce, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. As a result, organizations are striving to understand and meet the needs of this diverse demographic. And this is just one generation. Today’s workforce spans four—soon to be five—generations, and is comprised of various demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. So, it’s more important than ever that organizations’ benefit options are just as diverse and are designed to meet each employee’s individual goals and needs. How can this be accomplished?
The EMEA region calls for special considerations when managing relocation.
By Jonathan Langueneur
As the world becomes more globalised, cross-border transfers are becoming more common. Permanent relocations can be a win-win for both organisations and employees alike; they can help companies achieve talent and workforce management goals whilst offering workers personal and professional development. They are also an effective way for companies to develop or retain talent, especially in the EMEA region where employees have greater freedom to move across borders.
