Are you lucky enough to work for a company that allows employees to work remotely? There are many pros and cons that come with having employees work outside the office, and as someone with a leadership role in the company, you should know and understand the best ways to manage these employees. With the internet and advancements in technology, working remotely has become more popular than it was 10 years ago. More and more companies now have employees who telecommute sometimes. This means employees can work from home, on the road, or even overseas. Depending on where they are located, some employees have to commute for long periods of times - sometimes even hours - to get to their job site, but should they?
Good morning Everyone and welcome to today's presentation on Dominion System’s Time Off software. My name is Claire Manz and I’m your product strategist here at Dominion. For those of you who don't know me, I hope I can meet you soon. Today I'd like to walk you guys through a couple of the different sections of our Time Off platform. We have an employee side that I'd like to start with so we can get a feel for what the employee can do, how they can request their own time off, how they can manage their own time from that portal through our Employee Self Service section of our system, but then also how either an administrator or a supervisor has access to manage their employees time and approve that time and manage the employee time from the supervisor or administration side. It's very simple to use and I'm very excited for those of you who don't have this piece to be able to utilize it.
At Dominion, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the most up-to-date and relevant information. We found this article from our partner, Verified First, to be informative and educational and we thought we’d share it with you.
3 Best Practices for Recruiting Millennials
Millennials. So much research has been conducted at this point about this generation that it almost seems ridiculous. They’re lazy... they’re technically savvy... they need instant gratification faster, etc. Some feedback has been good, while the majority has been focused on the negative aspects of this generation. In recruiting, however, it’s a known fact that this generation is handled differently than previous generations.

Did you just open a new business? Perhaps you just started a new role at a company in the HR department. Whatever the case may be, it is a known fact that any HR role comes with a lot of stress and time-consuming tasks such as recruiting, onboarding, compensating employees, approving time off requests, maintaining policies and records, ensuring compliance, handling employee concerns and so on. All these tasks are important and there is no way around them, but luckily, there are ways to make those tasks easier and streamline your processes.
As you move up in the business world, you come to expect unwelcome setbacks and challenges. One of the biggest problems you will probably face most often is when an employee decides to leave for one reason or another. Even if you work for a large corporation, an employee leaving can cause a much higher impact than you might expect. The absence of a single employee can create a ripple effect that spreads to every corner of your business. Today I’m going to break down how turnover affects your business and the actual price tag that comes with replacing your former employees.
The following is part 2 of a transcription of a recent demo we put on of our Applicant Tracking System. You can watch the full demo here and read part 1 here.
Let's get into some job posts. I have a few jobs posts out here, associate trainer, client retention, various roles that I've created for my training company. I can see an overview of the position. I can see the posting owner and the actual posting date and I can see what applicant's I have as well as what candidates I have, so those that are further along in the process. The One button here is letting you know that I have a new candidate that has applied for this position. I can edit this as well. I can also copy this posting link for URLs. We have a dedicated job board that's available to you that I will show you when we get into the application side, but this post allows me to link directly to this job posts as opposed to the full job board. If you are using a vendor like indeed or Linkedin, you can take this URL and redirect them to your portal. So I can copy that post right away and set that up.
In your career, and in life in general, you’re probably consistently asked to provide feedback, which enables continuous improvement. As an HR professional, it’s your job to make your organization as valuable and efficient as possible, starting with your HR processes. In order to continuously improve recruiting, hiring, and retaining employees among other tasks, feedback is needed. One of the best ways to get feedback is by asking your employees to fill out surveys. Surveys provide responses that are a product of personal experience or the vision of what someone would hope for, giving valuable insight on making something better. That is why a new hire survey would be valuable in providing feedback for making the onboarding process, new hire program, and the work environment as effective as possible.
