5 Steps to a Highly Effective Employee Benefits Strategy

5 Steps to a Highly Effective Employee Benefits Strategy

Companies that offer strategic benefits perform 24% better than ones that don’t, recruit 8% more effectively and are 17% more likely to retain employees.

How to Improve Employee Engagement with Benefits

How to Improve Employee Engagement with Benefits

If your workforce is more focused on where to go for lunch than achieving business results, that’s a problem. Many studies, including Paycor’s own People Management Report, confirm what we already know: Employee engagement is strongly connected to productivity, profitability and customer satisfaction.

A recent Gallup survey compared businesses that ranked in the top 25% of employee engagement to those in the bottom quarter and found those in the top are 21% more profitable, 17% more productive, have 10% better customer ratings, experience 41% less absenteeism and suffer 70% fewer safety incidents. Also, engaged employees are less likely to be actively searching for a new job....

Pre-Employment Drug Testing Laws by State

Pre-Employment Drug Testing Laws by State

The job market continues to be very tight, and companies are increasingly coming to terms with the fact that finding and hiring top talent isn’t as easy as it once was. With so many states (33 at last count) legalizing medical and/or recreational marijuana, the pros and cons of drug or alcohol testing job applicants has become something of a hot topic. Marijuana accounts for nearly half of all positive drug test results. The rate of marijuana positives in the general U.S. workforce increased nearly 8% in urine testing (2.6% in 2017 vs. 2.8% in 2018) and almost 17% since 2014.

EEO-1 Reporting FAQs

EEO-1 Reporting FAQs

Employers covered by EEO-1 reporting requirements must submit 2017 & 2018 pay data to the EEOC by September 30, 2019.

The amount of additional data employers are required to provide is very significant. If you are unable to generate compensation, hours worked and pay bands into one report, it will create additional administrative work and could result in costly reporting errors. To help our customers navigate the new requirements, we've created this list of FAQs. Check out the resource below for more information to help you prepare....
