Employee relations issues: A make-or-break for employee experience
Most of us now know that the employee experience is more than just benefits, vacation policies and catered lunches. It’s about putting your people first and providing great service to them when it matters most. But those moments aren’t only the happy work life events, such as onboarding, having a baby, or an internal transfer or promotion. It’s equally as important to support employees and managers through the (hopefully) rare occasions that require disciplinary action or Employee Relations (ER) involvement.
Make seasonal and contingent workers a true part of your organization
As Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the holiday season fast approach, retailers and fulfillment centers are looking for seasonal workers to help meet the demand of the holiday spending season. Last year in the US alone, holiday sales rose to $691.9 billion in November and December, marking a 5.5% increase from the year before and the best holiday spending performance since 2005. This year, analysts are predicting that holiday sales will grow again.
Why it's important to deliver a great employee experience to deskless workers
Applications like Salesforce, Box, Microsoft Suite and Google Suite have improved workplace productivity, collaboration, and the employee experience for traditional desk workers.

I’m a 20 year HR/Recruiting Talent Pro with a Master’s in HR and SPHR certification, currently residing in Lansing, MI. Currently the President at HRU Technical Resources – a $40M IT and Engineering contract staffing firm and RPO. Prior to joining HRU, I was the Director of Employment at Sparrow Health System, Regional HR and Staffing Director with Applebee’s Intl., Retail Health Recruiting Manager and Regional HR Mgr. with ShopKo Stores and Pamida respectively. I’ve split my career half between recruiting and half between HR generalist roles – also split half between the HR vendor community and Corporate America – So, I think I get it from both sides of the desk.
