    Embrace Pain & Uncertainty

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Aug 5, 2020 9:53:14 AM

    I am one that likes to plan, have clarity, and feel in control. Well, 2020 certainly has challenged me in these areas. Regardless, I still have a choice. One option is to feel like a victim, get angry, be annoyed, complain about the situation, and feel sorry for myself. Been there, done that! Not fun or productive.

    Understanding Organizational Growth - Business Strata

    Posted by Steve Black on Jul 8, 2020 11:00:20 AM

    There he sat in his makeshift office. Doodling. Each day, it was the same thing. Get up, get ready, go into the garage. There was nothing spectacular about the workspace. You would find similar “stuff” in any number of garages in his Kansas City neighborhood. Once there, though, the creativity and magic unleashed. With pencil and paper in hand, Mr. Disney brought to life many of today’s iconic cartoon characters.

    A Letter from Your Employee Handbook: What a Solid Handbook Can Do for Your Organization

    Posted by Steve Black on Jun 23, 2020 10:53:49 AM

    Dear Business Owner,

    Hello. It’s me. Your Employee Handbook. Now, before you stop reading, can I share what is on my mind? I know you are busy, and I evoke a lot of eye-rolling. But, I have some important things to say. I cannot blame you for being annoyed with me as I routinely insist on being updated, re-signed, and discussed. Granted, I was last updated when George W. Bush was President, Tom Brady won his first Super Bowl, and cargo pants were a fad. If you will give me five minutes of your time, I will make it worth your while. I know I can add value to our organization.

    HR Issues Amidst COVID-19 Disruptions PART 8: Unemployment & The PPP - When Well-Meaning Governmental Programs Collide

    Posted by Steve Black on Jun 12, 2020 9:10:29 AM

    Let’s look at some simple math. Bob, an hourly employee, averaged 40 hours per week making $15 per hour. At the end of each week, his gross income was $600. Now, due to a furlough, Bob is receiving unemployment benefits. According to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, Bob will bring home a weekly unemployment benefit of $300. Common assumption would be that he would begin hunting for a new job. Not so fast. With passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Stability Act (CARES), the federal government expanded each States’ ability to provide unemployment insurance for many workers. The expansion places an extra $600 per week into the pockets of each eligible worker. Bob is now bringing home $900 per week.
