A typical organization has undergone five major companywide changes in the past three years, according to Gartner, with nearly 75% expecting more transformation in the future. Even workforce demographics have recently changed, shifting to a millennial and Gen Z majority.

You know that everything your employees do has a cost. But do you know where you’re paying twice for them to complete the same task? Do you know about the unnecessary administrative burden that keeps HR from creating and implementing company strategies, engaging with employees and addressing critical workforce issues? Many paths exist to help you avoid areas of profit drain, with employee usage of HR technology serving as your compass.

With Ernst & Young reporting a cost of $4.39 for every point of manual HR data entry, and workplace technology expectations of today’s employees shifting to a more consumer-friendly experience, the cost of performing HR tasks without self-service tech has never been more evident.
How can HR create a better employee experience and lead a digital transformation that benefits the bottom line?

Louis R. Lessig, Brown & Connery, LLP partner
On March 7, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed a rule that boosts the salary threshold at which workers are eligible to receive overtime, making a major change to employee exemption criteria under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
If finalized, the rule will extend overtime protections to more than a million currently exempt workers making less than $35,308 per year. It also would represent financial and operational challenges for employers, who will have to evaluate how their employees are scheduled and paid, in order to mitigate labor costs and exposure under the FLSA.
In this episode of HR Break Room, recorded at the Society for Human Resource Management 2019 Conference & Exposition, Louis R. Lessig joins hosts Caleb Masters and AJ Griffin to:

Everything employees do for your organization has a cost: $4.39 for every data entry, according to Ernst & Young research.
