    EPS Expert Series: Thriving in a Remote/Hybrid Business Model

    EPS Expert Series: Thriving in a Remote/Hybrid Business Model

    We all see it . . . Headlines around remote work continue – “Philadelphia mayor ending remote work policy for all full-time city employees,” “Survey Reports that Remote Employees Forced Back to the Office is Costing a Fortune,” “Remote work beats out salary as the most important thing to employees,” “Fully Remote Companies are the Most Productive, Report Finds.” Some firms are implementing full return to office (RTO) mandates, others are taking a more nuanced approach, balancing hybrid schedules with the organizational benefits.

    While the tug of war between RTO mandates and employees’ desire to work remotely continues, HR professionals often find themselves in the position of referee between leadership and employees. How can we work through these issues productively?

    Jill Rorschach, Esq., President/Shareholder of EPS and Sheri Paulo, EPS Consultant, discuss this tension and more. The discussion leverages Sheri's approach to successful remote/hybrid work based on her years of HR experience and as the Chief HR Officer leading a large organization through the COVID-19 pandemic. Sheri coaches leaders, and trains teams and managers to embrace what she calls the “Foundational 5 Best Practices” that are needed to thrive in a remote/hybrid work model with a focus on mutual accountability.

    EPS Title IX Investigations - Who? What? Why?

    EPS Title IX Investigations - Who? What? Why?

    Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities by institutions that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education, and sexual misconduct may constitute discrimination prohibited by Title IX. When a school knows or reasonably should know of any incident of sexual misconduct, personnel must take immediate steps to understand what occurred (i.e., whether a hostile environment based on sex exists), and respond appropriately. We explore all the elements of Title IX compliance and how organizations should prepare to investigate complaints of misconduct including how to select the appropriate investigator.

    From Diversity to Inclusion - Breaking Down Barriers on the Path to UnCommon Ground

    From Diversity to Inclusion - Breaking Down Barriers on the Path to UnCommon Ground

    Diversity has been a hot topic for quite some time. The notion of inclusion has surfaced more recently – and often in the same breath as diversity. We know, for example, that companies in the top quartile for gender, racial, and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry median. But, we are also beginning to understand that the benefits of diversity are only truly realized when it’s partnered with inclusion – the creation of an organizational culture where all individuals are respected and appreciated as valuable members of their communities. In this podcast, we examine the practical actions that employers and employees can take to make progress on the journey from diversity to inclusion.
