Wellness Wednesday: Cancer Fighting Foods

It seems like everywhere we turn, someone we know or love is diagnosed with cancer.  It also seems like everything can cause or cure cancer.  There are so many unanswered questions and contradictory opinions.  I recently watched 2 different documentaries that really left me questioning the food I eat, and what I am putting into my body.  I, personally, am going to make a very conscious attempt to limit certain foods in my diet.  I hope you enjoy the following article that teaches you more about the healthy foods that can prevent cancer, and about the actions you can take to lower your risk of certain cancers.

Your Boss is Terrible. Here’s Why…

Hope this article helps many early-stage managers…and wish I read it back then, too. It is a quick read but resonates. When you are successful early in your career because of your independence and autonomy, it is a COMPLETELY new game when supervising others because you must remember that “You can’t [meaning ‘should not’] do everything yourself when you are a manager.”

This is Why Your Boss is Terrible, According to Management Experts

We all know that bosses can be jerks. Now economists think they understand why — although the reason may surprise you.

As it turns out, most companies end up promoting their best-performing employees, giving them responsibility for supervising others workers. The problem, new research shows, is that the skills that made employees succeed at their initial jobs don’t help when it comes to supervising others — and may actually hurt.

Let’s Talk HR Issues

HR Colleagues – would you like to meet (even virtually) to discuss this article from Fortune.com?

This ‘look behind the curtain’ generated some emotion on my end – you? Anyone going to the World at Work Future of Work Conference in Dallas next week? I’ll be there, let’s meet/talk! – Laura Morgan

I am looking forward to attending this event and recognizing some opportunities we may have in our own organization. Change is everywhere in the workplace and it is important that we are open to some new trends.  We will need to think about the way we can be creative and think outside of the box in the future of work, talent and rewards. I am curious to hear thought leaders speak on behalf of these philosophies.

 

 

Technology in the Workplace Interest Group – Building a Real-Time Performance Management Culture

The Alzheimer’s Association in Chicago hosted a wonderful event on March 1, 2018.
HR has been talking about “blowing up” the Performance Management process for decades. That reality is finally within reach thanks to advances in technology like cloud-computing that make new, modern, more engaging solutions available to companies of all sizes. The panelists were able to share their experiences on how technology made it possible to move from a decades-old annual PM process to a real-time, frequent touch-point approach that ties Performance Management into their Compensation processes. They discussed their journeys, their successes and challenges, and how technology is enabling their managers to maximize the value that they derive from their Performance Management and Compensation processes. Thank you, Alzheimer’s Association, HRMAC and all the panelists for hosting, speaking and attending the event.

Panelists:

Emily Fisk, Manager, Talent Management, GoGo, LLC

Lindsay Dagiantis, VP of Human Resources, Envoy Global, Inc.

Karen Moody, Compensation Manager, Alzheimer’s Association

The Event Moderator was Managing Partner, Laura Morgan of MorganHR, Inc.

HR Compensation Management Software Company Empowers Business with Best HRIS Tools

Chicago based SimplyMerit, a division of MorganHR, Inc., is making waves with its popular HRIS software, which is quickly becoming the most intuitive HR compensation management software on the market.

When asked to describe what they do, MorganHR’s Managing Partner Neil Morgan said, “Annual merit allocation is a significant investment of both time and money for most organizations. Properly rewarding great performance is something most companies would love to embrace, but the process of doing so can be less than desirable. SimplyMerit allows you to optimize your merit spend while simultaneously engaging executives and empowering management. If you are a business looking to improve your human resources compensation management system, then SimplyMerit should be worth considering.”
