When Branch Manager, Amanda Lewis was asked how she accomplished this terrific feat, she replied “The employee check-ins and reference checks work. We make sure that every employee that goes on a jobsite understands that their safety is our number one concern.” She added, “Our clients must be safety conscious too, or we can’t partner with them.”

With the number of jobsite injuries and incidents on construction sites on the rise, the safety of our employees remains Trillium Construction’s top priority. With all of the branches cohesively working together, Trillium can continue to eliminate the number of incidents on jobsites each year. Congratulations to the Trillium Jacksonville office and keep up the good work!

Maintaining Millennial Talent /blog/maintaining-millennial-talent/ /blog/maintaining-millennial-talent/#respond Mon, 14 Nov 2016 13:27:02 +0000 /blog/?p=3661 Continue reading ]]> As the talent gap continues to grow, employers are looking to the Millennial and Gen Z populations to complete their teams. It’s estimated that by 2020, Millennials alone will make up nearly half of the workforce. In order to attract and maintain Millennials in your workforce, it’s important to understand that their values and interests vary greatly from other generations.

img_2877

As employers adjust to the retirement of their aging workforce, they’re forced to reassess their expectations and company culture. Even beyond the struggle to attract Millennial talent is the struggle to maintain it. According to Forbes, 91% of Millennials expect to stay at a job for less than three years. PwC reports that 43% of Millennials said they are open to other offers. So, how do you hold on to your new talent?

The key to maintaining Millennials in the workplace is keeping them happy. TIME reports “Loving What I Do” is more important to Millennials than even salaries and big bonuses. They also report that more than 80% want more flexible work schedules.

This generation centers themselves around entertainment and technology, spending more than 5 hours daily on social media. Keeping them engaged in the workplace can be easier when offering state of the art technology, instant messaging, and access to social media platforms. All of this connectivity can also work to your advantage as it can build your referral network quickly. Allowing flexible scheduling, telecommuting, and travel opportunities can also build commitment in the workplace. With nearly a third of the Millennial group planning to leave their current job in the next year, it’s never to soon to implement changes to your culture.

Halloween: The Perfect Morale Booster! /blog/halloween-the-perfect-morale-booster/ /blog/halloween-the-perfect-morale-booster/#respond Thu, 27 Oct 2016 18:41:57 +0000 /blog/?p=3627 Continue reading ]]> There is a long running idea that Halloween is just for kids. That unless you are under the age of 13 or in college, that dressing up and getting into the spirit of the holiday isn’t for adults and definitely doesn’t have a place in the office. That is just nonsense! Halloween could be the perfect way to boost your employees’ morale and keep your office motivated.

trillium-logo-tagline_halloween

While more and more adults are getting into the Halloween spirit this time of year, it can make for a less motivated office environment. Less motivation results in less productivity. Here are a few tips to ensure that your office stays motivated during this spooktacular time of year.

  • Allow your employees to dress up for Halloween. While ensuring that any costume ideas are appropriate for the workplace, allow your employees to express their creativity this one day a year. You will be surprised how this simple gesture will show your employees just how much you care about their well-being.
  • Get out of the office and volunteer. Dressing up not your thing? No problem! Plan a day for your employees to get out and volunteer in the community. This could involve volunteering at a local soup kitchen or animal shelter. Regardless of the avenue, it always feels good to get out and give back.
  • Plan games or activities for the office to all participate in. There are a number of games and ideas to keep the festive feeling in the air. Guess how many pieces of candy are in a jar, costume contests, office or cubical decorating contests are all engaging and exciting ways to get your employees involved and motivated.
  • Throw a Halloween themed office party! Plan a party at the end of the day or even plan one after hours to allow your employees to let loose and have some fun with their coworkers. Short on money? Plan the party at the office and turn it into a potluck, bring a dish to pass event.

Giving your employees an avenue to enjoy themselves and let loose around this time of year is an excellent way to help focus their motivation not only through the end of the day but it is a great way to jumpstart the holiday season.

Lack of Sleep? Wake Up America! /blog/lack-of-sleep-wake-up-america/ /blog/lack-of-sleep-wake-up-america/#respond Tue, 25 Oct 2016 19:57:00 +0000 /blog/?p=3588 Continue reading ]]> I’m sure all of you have felt the effects of sleep deprivation at some point during your work day. But how widespread is lack of sleep in America?

stockxpertcom_id4722611_size2

According to OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety), today Americans are sleeping only 6 hours per night, that is 1-2 hours less than Americans just 60 years ago! So what is the difference between how we sleep today and how our grandparents or even great grandparents got their beauty rest?

The problem is due to a wide array of causes:

  • Americans today literally have access to technology 24/7. Whether they are checking emails, watching TV, or scrolling through social media, people have an endless supply of mental stimulation available at their fingertips. While this seems wonderful and might possibly may make you feel more engaged, the advancements in technology can cause sleep issues.
    • Studies have shown that viewing screens (whether from TV, Mobile device, laptop etc) within the last hour before bed can keep your brain from shutting down properly, not allowing for a restful night’s sleep.
  • Sleep disorders have continued to grow amongst Americans, currently affecting 50-70 million Americans.
    • In fact, insomnia-related workplace accidents cost employers between $15 billion to $92 billion annually.
  • Working odd shifts has also proved to be a major issue. In fact, the 22 million American shift workers average 2-4 hours less than the average working individual.

To learn more about sleep deprivation can lead to workplace injuries, please check out safetymanagement.eku.edu.

2016 FLSA Changes: Are You Prepared? /blog/2016-flsa-changes-are-you-prepared/ /blog/2016-flsa-changes-are-you-prepared/#respond Mon, 10 Oct 2016 20:14:38 +0000 /blog/?p=3446 Continue reading ]]> On May 18, 2016 President Obama and Secretary Perez announced the publication of the Department of Labor’s final rule updating the current overtime regulations, which will automatically extend overtime pay protections to approximately 4 million workers. While many employers had awaited this final ruling after President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum back in 2014 directing the DOL to update the existing regulations, many are still scrambling to make sense of what the final rule means for their employees and their business.

Large Group of People (2)

The key provisions of the final rule are as follows:

  • Determines the standard salary level at the 40th percentile of earnings of full-time salaried workers in the lowest-wage Census Region at $913 per week or $47,476 annually for an employee who works all year.
  • Sets the total annual compensation requirement for highly compensated employees (referred to as HCE) subject to a minimal duties test and to the annual equivalent of the 90th percentile of full time salaried workers nationally at $134,004.
  • Establishes a mechanism for automatically updating the salary and compensation levels every 3 years to maintain the levels at the above percentiles and to ensure that they continue to provide useful and effective tests for exemption.

The final rule also amends the salary basis test to allow employers to use discretionary bonuses and incentives to satisfy up to 10 percent of the new standard salary level. These changes take effect on December 1, 2016, leaving many employers to make determinations on how to handle their current staff who may be effected by the changes in standard salary level which previously was set at $23,660 annually.

Employers are building plans to accommodate the potential increases in overtime costs and base salaries, the re-classification of employees, changes in timekeeping, and any additional business ramifications. If you have not addressed these changes for your organization, The Department of Labor offers additional information at www.wagehour.dol.gov or by calling 1-866-4-USWAGE.
