This Week’s Finest
‘Take a Vacation. Please.’ (url) – NY-based company Kickstarter replaced its uncapped vacation policy with an annual 25 days of PTO.
The reason: employees have been unclear about the policy and took less vacation. Research shows this company is not a unique case.
‘2016 Will Be a Good Year to Repay Student Debt’ (url) – the outlook for 2016 suggests that 39% of SMBs will be bullish to hire college degree holders.
This is partly driven by increasing concerns over employee turnover.
Selfies Are not a CV Replacement (url) – a recent survey has shown a negative selfie bias and other things as to ‘how HR professionals use social media in the recruiting process’.
Wage Wars: Which Presidential Candidates Want to Push the Minimum Wage Floor? (url) – these candidates try to win over votes by suggesting federal hourly minimum wages of $15 by 2020.
