Is sending out a “Happy Birthday” message a privacy violation in the workplace because of new data privacy laws? Read more to find out…
When we think of data privacy, we are often concerned with our personal information being sold to third-parties or being used in a less-than scrupulous way that could have a negative impact on our finances, job opportunities and more. That is why comprehensive laws, like GDPR, have been introduced in Europe as well as in other areas of the world, to protect how that data is collected, stored and shared. With new protective laws, however, can come potentially unexpected side effects that organizations should be prepared to manage.
One such affected area is your company Employee Rewards and Recognition Program. These programs inherently tap into an employee’s data because at its core, they are recognizing employees for achievements, milestones, life events and more – all of which can include information that might be deemed private under new mandates.
Don’t guess, and risk potentially hefty fines when it comes to data privacy laws and your employee rewards and recognition program; and enlist the guidance of an industry leader, Madison Performance Group, who has been prepared for and implementing solutions that will keep your program in compliance.
While marijuana is illegal under federal law, many states have followed cultural shifts and recent legislation by legalizing it for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. This has left employer drug tests harder to administer than before in these states. Yet even in some states where it is legal, the law can compel certain types of employers to take action to ensure their workplaces are drug-free.
With employer drug tests have become even harder to administer than in the past, due to virtually full employment. A total of 33 states now have comprehensive medical marijuana programs. 11 states plus the District of Columbia, have legalized the stuff for recreational usage. Employers have every reason to expect more marijuana legislation to pass in the near future.

With the extremely low unemployment rate and a growing skills and talent gap, U.S. companies are struggling more than ever to find, retain, and compete for the right talent to help their business grow and become a competitive player in their industry.
But as the recruiting environment grows more complex and fast-paced, RPOs must go the extra mile to deliver value-added services and speedy solutions. This whitepaper, presented by Pierpoint, delves into how the next stage of RPO – Recruitment Resources Outsourcing (“RRO“) – is beneficial for companies to implement.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
The expectations that surround best-in-class recruiting have shifted dramatically during the first part of the twenty-first century. As recently as a decade ago, an effective recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) relationship was regarded as a ‘service.’ The traditional service level agreements (SLAs) related to time-to-fill, satisfaction surveys, and the link – as opposed to true business outcomes measured by increased sales and margin performance – reduced the partnership to something much more transactional.
But recruiting is complicated, it’s nuanced, it’s fluid. Like any great relationship, provider and client will work better and more closely together when they have a shared mutual interest, and the results will follow.
RPO gainsharing is designed to get the provider and the client working together differently, and more closely. This happens easily when there is mutual investment and commitment to one another, closer communication, and less dancing around each other. The level of business intimacy found in other working relationships, like the CEO with her COO or a manger with his director, is hard to replicate. Gainsharing is a way to drive the kind of intimacy and collaboration that real partners share, as touched upon in this report.
How can healthcare executives manage staffing shortages, rising regulatory pressures, and increased marketplace competition?
A critical part of the solution to workforce budgeting challenges is optimizing contingent staff to reduce costs, make spending more predictable, relieve management pressures, and improve patient care. In response to the increased utilization of contingent practitioners throughout the healthcare industry, three healthcare workforce solutions are available today that can significantly simplify the entire sourcing and talent management process: Vendor Management Systems (VMS) and two distinct types of Managed Services Programs (MSP).
Competition to find the best applicants is at an all-time high, and competitors are fighting to find applicants to help their company grow and set them apart.
A comprehensive background screening program can be used to strengthen a company in its specific industry and increase efficiencies in the hiring process. Your company’s future relies on the workforce you build and it is imperative to hire the right person, the first time.
Employees are a company’s greatest asset, and establishing a strong and attractive employee brand starts with finding top talent globally to build a workforce. Now, more than ever, it’s important to verify all of the information regarding an applicant’s history to help protect the company’s reputation brand and its staff members as well.
Technology innovations are impacting every facet of the talent acquisition industry. Candidates are more connected than ever before, which has changed their job search expectations. They expect to be able to complete the entire application process on mobile devices, and they expect it to be fast. Smart companies need to evolve and optimize their candidate experience to stay ahead of these trends.
In the ebook Seven Tech Trends Shaping the Talent Landscape, you’ll learn about trends like artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics.

More than 60-percent of employees remain disengaged at work, according to Gallup’s annual State of the American Workplace survey, and the percentage of engaged employees has been consistently low in the last three surveys.
Clearly, measuring engagement and addressing a few key elements per year is not driving the positive energy companies are seeking.
A powerful tool often discussed in employee engagement surveys – but rarely the focal point of HR strategy – is social recognition. How can you use social recognition properly to drive business impact?
Companies expect their RPOs to create better, more efficient and deeper pipelines of talent. They expect a strong social media presence. They expect technology, metrics and analytics. And they expect high operational performance.
But, as markets mature, operational efficiency only goes so far. So RPOs have looked to deliver value-added services. They seek to become better partners, and that means deeper relationships. However, even value-added services are becoming table stakes.
The next stage of RPO is taking performance and accountability to the next level with strategic RPO/client relationships that help your company become a more competitive player in your industry.
It’s no secret that finding top talent is difficult – especially in the transportation industry, where the employment of Line Haul and Pickup/Delivery drivers is projected to grow 11% from 2012 to 2022.
