Three reasons you should take your kids to work

By Lisa Bull 

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

The Unexpected Benefit the Gig Economy has on your Business

By Nick Venturella

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.

House Approves American Health Care Act – First Step to ACA Repeal & Replace

Jim O’Connell – Senior Compliance Analyst, Ceridian

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

Are you maximizing your most important talent acquisition tool?

Maurice Fernandes – Employment Brand Manager, Ceridian

As an HR/recruitment professional, you spend a lot of time, energy, and money trying to attract the right talent to your organization. But are you paying enough attention to what, in my opinion, is the most powerful attraction tool in your kit; your organization’s employment brand? A recent study from Glassdoor found that a strong employer brand not only attracted more applicants but those applicants would consider a job offer with a lower salary.

In the past, companies were able to craft their own employer brand messaging and present it behind closed doors during the interview process. The Internet has given job seekers access to an unprecedented amount of information. This means that often times job seekers have already made up their mind about a company before speaking to a Recruiter/HR or Hiring Manager.

How does this affect HR/recruitment teams? What can they do to turn this risk into a benefit? Read more
