At Ceridian, we think of our employees as family. Lots of organizations say that, but for us it really holds true. Many of our employees have worked together for 10+ years, while others have been part of several start-up organizations together and lived to tell about it!
And with that sense of family comes a commitment to want to know our employees’ “real” families – the people that share them with us Monday through Friday. That’s why last month we decided to open our office doors to our employees’ kids and welcomed them for an amazing day at Ceridian.
This day was like the national “Take Your Kids to Work Day” events which happen across North America, but we opened it up to a broader age range (10 to 16 years) and did it the Ceridian way! Read more

According to the annual report, Freelancing in America 2016, from Upwork and the Freelancers Union, 13.5 million people took gigs outside of their primary full-time job responsibilities last year.
In other words, 25% of traditionally employed full-time U.S. workers were moonlighting as independent contractors in 2016.
Overall, freelancers contributed an estimated $1 trillion in earnings to our economy. That said, it doesn’t appear as though freelancing, or what many refer to as the “Gig Economy,” is going away any time soon.

Deep in my heart I know it, but it’s so hard to show it, ‘Cause it’s easier—easier said than done. From the pop song #1 hit, “Easier Said Than Done,” by Essex.
On May 4 the House of Representatives approved the American Health Care Act (AHCA), Republican legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, on a razor-thin vote of 217-213 and with Democrats unanimous in opposition.
Joining President Trump at the White House soon after, House Republicans claimed victory in their years-long campaign to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Like the song that went to the top of the charts in 1963, however, the GOP is likely to find repealing and replacing Obamacare easier said than done.
Las Vegas odds makers would probably give the American Health Care Act a 50-50 chance of being signed into law this year by President Trump, but not before undergoing substantial modification. The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate, where its future is uncertain for several reasons. Read more
