There is Free Cake in the Kitchen

Posted By AOA, 2 hours ago

All-company emails are effective for sharing important information, such as letting everyone know there is leftover birthday cake in the kitchen. But how well does this method of communication work when used for work-related information?

Holidays in the Workplace

Posted By AOA, Monday, May 15, 2017

When you think of holiday parties at work, you probably think of those fancy, evening events held in the winter months; oftentimes, an employee will arrive dressed in a red suit and large, white beard. There are countless smaller holidays that offices around the country celebrate. These smaller holidays can be used to promote team building and show your employees some much needed appreciation.

Short-term Disability

Posted By AOA, Monday, May 8, 2017

In a perfect world, your employees would all come in on time, give 110 percent and never have to miss a day of work. Sadly, we don’t live in a fantasy world. Life happens; cars won’t start, people have off days and sometimes things occur that cause an employee to be out of work for longer than a few days.    

If something happens to an employee outside of the office, such as an accident or catastrophic illness, they may be out of work for an extended period of time. Short-term disability is how they cover their bills and living expenses. Click here to read more.

Posted By AOA, Friday, May 5, 2017

Your employees spend roughly 40 hours a week together. That’s a long time. Because of this, you should not be surprised when some of them grow closer than workplace proximity associates. Office romances will happen. It is your job to plan for them.

Others between a subordinate and a supervisor, say a regional manager named Michael and a vice president named Jan, can spiral out of control and create a lot of problems for management.

Posted By AOA, Monday, May 1, 2017

Summertime and the livin’ is easy. When the weather heats up, things slow down. One thing that does not get more relaxed is your office dress code.

Putting on a suit, wearing tights and slipping on a pair of dress shoes, while routine in the winter, becomes increasingly challenging in the hot, humid months of summer. We recommend addressing this before it becomes a problem. No one wants to have to send an employee home because they were not fully aware of your office’s dress code. Click here to read more.
