I am looking for best practices in reducing anxiety in the workplace, especially for remote workers. What are you all doing?

My team has made tremendous efforts during the pandemic to ensure the safety of all facilities and people in our region as we resume in-office activity. Predicated on confidentiality, my colleague went to HR with negative feedback re a specific leader’s flexibility with the *mandatory* PPE protocol. The HR Manager went directly to the leader and gave the feedback along w my colleagues name. Since that day she’s been heavily “taxed.” HR has a responsibility to protect anonymity. How to handle?
How do you communicate with employees who don't want to wear masks? Unbelievable to me people still have issues grasping this need.
It feels weird posting a LinkedIn post in FishBowl, but I found this post from Jamal very insightful. I would have just copied the text, but I want to give him credit.
For all that HR leaders have done to shoulder the huge responsibilities over the last 6 months, what are your organizations doing to take care of you? For all the space we hold for other people, is anyone holding space for you?
I'm probably overthinking this, but I figured I would ask anyways--what should I swear to a video interview? The position is an HR Generalist position, and will include the hiring manager (director), an HR Manager, a HRBP, and the VP of HR. Other members of the HR may "pop in" as well, but I was told those would be informal meet and greets.
I’ve been tasked right off the bat with implementing Facebook Workplace as an engagement/communication tool. I looked it up and seems fairly easy, especially as a facebook user. But as with anything it can be a challenge to get employees to actually use/check it. So-- does anyone have experience with Facebook Workplace? If so, what are some things that have worked/didn't work for you. Do you like it?
We are creating a training room (for about 8 learners). We’ll use this for new hire orientation mostly, but the organization has ongoing training needs. I have never had to design a training space before. If you’ve done this, what are TOP things or things you wished you had included (but didn’t think of)?
I am an independent contractor looking for a new position in HR Management. I am open to relocation. Are there any leads?
What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?
CA employment management-side lawyer here. I also do a fair amount of FLSA work. Fire away with any questions, and I’ll do my best to answer or point you in the direction of answers. Caveat - nothing here creates an attorney-client relationship.
I am in my first HRBP role. It has been a role I’ve been wanting to focus on and get in to but never got the opportunity to do so. My imposter syndrome has kicked in, especially since it’s all remote too. I was wondering if anyone can give some advice on how to build that trust and relationship piece with managers to be able to succeed? I feel like my fear is holding me back and I am so afraid of failing again.
I’m planning to buy the study materials for the SHRM-CP certificate through Amazon. What are the best ones to obtain?
How do you get evaluated in your role in HR? I run the HR department (if you wanna call it that) at a medium sized startup and the people I answer to have never given any kind of metric or measurement of success. What do/should I use to measure myself?
What do u guys do for fun? When I was a kid, I enjoyed video games; as a teenager, playing sports; in 20s, traveling and partying; in 30s with a kid, nothing... i don’t know what fun is anymore...
For those in a relationship — when you go out (pre-covid) with your friends, do you typically bring along your SO? Wondering how much couples usually merge their social lives (early 20s)
Gossip time: what info do u have about the two guys that were fired after getting into a fight at TEAC
Hey, anyone know how much a plyo box went for before COVID jacked up all the prices for gym stuff? I want to get one but I don't want to pay the up charge and I'm more than willing to wait.
Was anyone else looking to buy a home before COVID-19? Are you proceeding as usual or have you changed your plans or timeline? This is for personal property not investment property.
Best approach to enter industry and to be in a position to be considered for a business unit head after a few years in LA / SoCal? Background see below...
Completed all formal interviews for an opportunity. Now they'd like me to have an informal meet & greet with the person I would be managing. I love the idea of this and I already manage in my current role. Looking for other HR 🐠 perspectives on how to approach this informal meet & greet...take the lead? Treat it like a 1:1? Ask what her professional goals are? How she's managed WFH during COVID? Her experience in the company/on the team? Her communication style/how she likes to receive feedback
How much does a design director/creative director make in San Francisco? I have 15 yrs of experience.
Cross-post: Expecting first kid a month after one year anniversary at big 4. Not entirely planned. Should I be aware of any issues around my being new to the firm (maternity leave soon after joining)?
Impossible is a mountain on the path of life. Some encounter it once, others, numerous times. Just like Everest, no mountain is unclimbable if you have the right preparation and equipment.
I believe there are good sales people and bad sales people. I also believe there are great sales people with shit territories, and shit sales people with great territories. Agree or disagree and why?
Has anybody tried/evaluated taking Term Life Insurance from LIC vs a US company? What are the implications of using them, especially, when you change status(e.g., NRI vs non-NRI)?
I’ve been a senior writer at my agency for a couple of years. I’ve been starting to take on new initiatives that have made it pretty clear I’m working toward being promoted to an ACD role that was open before Covid. One of the other Senior writers picked up on it, and is now making things awkwardly competitive. I don’t really think there’s any competition, from a talent or managerial skills perspective. I just worry that things are going to become awkward for the rest of the team. Any advice?
Exit opportunities- Apple, Amazon or American airlines? The first two are operations related roles and last one is corporate strategy. Salary is a bit higher in tech but cost of living is higher in CA
Argued with another EA today who tried to tell me a Roth IRA is a waste, that a 401k is all that's necessary... Wouldn't accept that they are two different retirement options and equates to more money
Do I get a tax form for a 401K that I have with a previous employer? haven't worked there since 2018 but don't know if will receive a tax form for 2019. I didn't contribute but paid off a loan in 2019
