The Week That Was – 11/9/12
Of course the election was the big news of the week. No matter which side of the aisle you lean toward, I think we all share this (now world famous) little girl’s fatigue with the election. Kronos has been in the news this week as the national discussion turns back to the hard work of economic recovery. Channel 4 in Boston interviewed our CEO, Aron Ain because Kronos is a company that’s hiring. Those of us who already work here weren’t surprised to learn that the Boston Globe named Kronos a top place to work in Massachusetts. Aron also appeared on NPR to talk about how Kronos customers use scheduling to manage workers who can cover flexible shifts on short notice in a segment titled “Sluggish Economy Relies More on Part-time Workers”.
Interesting Items to Read This Week:
Good tips from SHRM about the wage and hour issues raised by Hurricane Sandy. And here are some examples from the Wall Street Journal about how different companies are compensating employees (or not) as a result of Sandy-induced closings.
Story on Kronos customer Valley Power Systems using mobile devices to log hours.
No matter how you feel about the election results from this week, the good news (unless you hate women) is that a record number of women will be serving in the Senate come January.
