Hi. Who handles/processes FMLA paperwork in your company - HR or Payroll? Just want to get ideas as we are reorganizing 😁
Any suggestions on how to get around the “gatekeeper?” My job relies on calling and visiting cold leads and getting past the gatekeeper and speaking to someone who can make a decision is becoming nearly impossible.

How do you know your value? Throughout my 10 yrs of being in a professional setting, I've had colleagues from various places of employment say, I don't think you know your worth. You're under valued, etc. What exercises/tools have helped you realize your worth and effectively advocate for it? TIA!

I have worked in the healthcare industry for 15+ years and looking to transition from being an HR manager to working more with HRIS software (specifically Workday). I saw a position for Sr Integration Consultant-Healthcare posting but seeking more insight on the position. Is consulting an entry level position? Do I need to have Workday experience? Is this a salaried position (as I am accustomed to a 40 Hr/Week salaried position)? Any insight provided is greatly appreciated.
Do I tell the companies I am interviewing with that I just started a new job 4 weeks ago?
Background: I left my company and joined a new one but have recently discovered that I think I made the wrong choice.There are enough "red flags" that make it a NO for me.I have been interviewing and telling companies that I am still at my last company.Should I keep doing that or tell them I have been at a place that is not working out?The new place I am at is considered one of the best startups in the US
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months.

What has everyone found to be the best methods of cold outreach lately? I’m curious to see how this varies based on industry

Hi all, I’ve been in my current role for 1 year now, I have 1 year of formal HR experience plus 5+ years of management experience. My current company is global and I’m the only HR rep at my site, with~100 EEs. The rest of my HR corporate team is in another state, including my manager. My manage is very hands off (I go weeks without hearing from her), so I don’t feel like I am learning much. While I like the experience I am gaining I would like some 1:1 coaching. Am I warranted to look elsewhere?
Does anyone have a sharable compensation model geared toward a Business Development Manager in the Building Services Industry?
Any one from IBM ?
I went through the entire recruitment process and got selected for IBM ISL. Now I am being told by the HR that they are unable to release offer as there is a hiring freeze.
Can any one please tell me if its correct or just an excuse not to give me offer. If its true, when will this freeze be removed?

Currently have a hospice patient on physical therapy caseload for device recommendations to give her a better QOL in her final days. I go in to assess her and find she has a sacral ulcer. Nurse and I (the PT) agree that the patient would benefit from a ROHO cushion for her W/C. Hospice comes back and says they don’t cover cushions! This is beyond messed up. Bigger picture, this $170 cushion is probably cheaper than most items they’ve spent money on covering for her.

new relationship of 3 or 4 months.... my boyfriend has a big beer belly / dad bod midsection that i find rather unattractive at times...i make suggestions and hints that he should take better care of himself and changes to diet (he exercises a little) but nothing has changed and he definitely binge eats. also says he’s always been a lil chunky.
i don’t want to be with a man who doesn’t take care of themselves. what to do? just sit around and wait?
I am planning to invest in smallcases by opening a trading account with Zerodha. Some of these smallcases consist of 50 small and mid cap Indian stocks with fortnightly churn. Updating these in the Independence Checkpoint once in two weeks will be extremely painful. The automatic broker data import (AIR) page does not show Zerodha as an option. Anyone had a similar dilemma?
