Contributed by Lauren Gus, Senior Director of Human Resources at Sterling Talent Solutions


Laws that directly impact a company’s workforce are growing across the country and California has led the way in driving change for workers through new regulations.

Five Questions to Ask of Your Employer Review Site

In today’s age of anonymous online sharing, platforms that show what employees really think about a company are bringing new levels of workplace transparency. Job seekers can learn if a company matches their workplace needs. Employees can voice their thoughts both securely and anonymously. And employers can keep a pulse on employee sentiments about everything from advancement opportunities to the company culture.
