The following is part 1 of a transcription from a recent demo we did that covers Dominion’s Time Off software. Watch the full demo for free here!

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.

The Rise of Racial Profiling and Discrimination in the Workplace and What You Can Do About It

The Rise of Racial Profiling and Discrimination in the Workplace and What You Can Do About It

By now you have probably already seen the viral video that is going around involving the arrest of two African-American men at a Philadelphia store. These two men entered a Starbucks and asked to use the bathroom, but an employee informed them that it was only for paying customers. When the men sat down in the store without ordering anything, the manager decided to call the police. When the police arrived at the establishment, the two men were arrested for trespassing as the friend that they were waiting for arrived at the store. This viral video has triggered many different reactions. Members of Black Lives Matter PA held a rally outside of Starbucks and some protesters even went inside the store to confront the manager. Celebrities and politicians have also been calling for action, including Kevin Hart and Jim Kenney, who are both Philadelphia natives. After apologizing for the incident, Starbucks’ CEO, Kevin Johnson, announced that all stores will be closed on May 29, 2018, for racial-bias education.
