 In Employee Relations, Five for Friday, Recruiting, Retention, Sullivan, Talent Management, Vermont Human Resources

1. Even in Vermont

The Burlington Free Press told us the story of a attorney moved to Vermont drawn by it’s progressive reputation, but found sexual harassment surprisingly common.  Then they gave us a story reinforcing that fact.

2.   Standing Desks Are Over-rated

We shouldn’t need the New York Times to tell us standing desks are no substitute for real exercise. I don’t care, I still love mine.

3.   The Job of Staying Sober

If you’ve worked in HR any length of time you’ve dealt employee substance abuse problems. Some companies are working to be part of the solution.

4.   The Huge Impact of Internal Movement

Dr. John Sullivan gives us a loooong list of the benefits of “expedited internal movement”.

5.   Ha-Ha

“Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity.” Please, just keep it clean.
