Fast-food harassment

With the current media attention on a certain fast-food establishment and the various allegations of bullying, racial, and sexual harassment amongst their employees, it only highlights the need for a zero-tolerance approach when dealing with these types of claims.  Each organisation should have clear and well written policies in place and train their staff on the importance of bully and harassment policies.    A worker has a right to a safe working environment and the employer has a duty of care to provide this.

Spending a penny. Or a pound.

Expenses aren’t easy, a minefield of what can and can’t be claimed. Littered with manual processes and a ‘will they won’t they’ every payday. Our expenses module marries up with payroll, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.    Rummaging around at the bottom of a laptop bag, fishing for crumpled memories of a working lunch. Scanning, submitting and meeting that deadline, only for the whole thing to be rejected without an ounce of context. We all know the slog of submitting expenses, but…

Stop. Collaborate and listen | Combining payroll & HR. 

In our annual payroll survey, 13% of respondents cited integration as their number one frustration across payroll & HR. Well, hold onto your hats, because we’ve integrated the best in payroll with the best in HR. But here’s what that actually means.  Hitting save with your eyes half closed, and muttering a small prayer as you submit your payroll is no way to live your life. And let’s save a thought for the departments who crack their fingers as they rekey employee data into the…

Employee absence: the real wellbeing indicator

Sally is always on the sick, or am I imagining it? And what’s our sickness policy again?

New workplace standards for menopause and menstruation support are launched

Thanks to recent media attention, such as Channel 4's Davina McCall: Sex, Mind and the Menopause, there's now increased awareness of the effects of the menopause. However, despite the menopause discussion growing louder, many women still feel reluctant to talk about their symptoms in the workplace. Recent research from Peppy showed that just 22% of workers have spoken about menopause at work and sadly research from the Fawcett Society suggested about 10% of those experiencing menopause have left the workplace due to symptoms such as hot flushes, ‘’brain fog’’, anxiety, low mood,…

The iceberg of the tip

Are you like me, increasingly confused about leaving tips when you eat out? Do you interrogate the waiting staff about who benefits from the ‘service charge’ that’s appeared on your bill? Do you find yourself fuming because you gave the waiter a cash tip only to spot, subsequently, that a service charge had already been added? The swing to a cashless society, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, reflects a significant lifestyle change. The practice of adding a service charge to bills, mainly in the hospitality…
