HR Bartender

I’m a self-professed math geek. Which is why I’m very excited to share with you today’s interview. But before we start, I want to share how I learned about Dr. Jac Fitz-enz.

nettime solutions

Your schedule forms the backbone of your daily business operations. Since payroll is one of the biggest items in your budget, the way you staff your shifts makes a huge impact on your bottom line. You also need to have protocols for when and how the schedule is displayed, how employees make time off requests, and how they swap shifts.

Understanding ACA Compliance And Utilizing Staffing Firms
