  • Outline common mistakes new managers make;
  • Share ways to limit adverse effects of common managerial mistakes; and
  • Cover challenges managers encounter, such as delegating and managing former peers.

Show Topic:

It’s difficult to keep up with the ever-changing employment law landscape.

Add into that landscape state and federal tax and retirement rules and regulations that affect the benefits that are offered to employees (and/or required to be offered to employees) and we know that your company’s HR team’s head is likely spinning. Is there a way that some of the stress associated with benefits administration be shifted to a subject-matter authority? Maybe.

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez as she talks to Vinnie Allard, Director of Advisor National Accounts at Human Interest about 401(k)s generally, how small and mid-size businesses can easily take advantage of the benefits provided this investment vehicle, and recently enacted state laws that require employers to offer 401(k)s to employees.

Vinnie and his colleagues have been huge proponents of making 401(k) retirement planning easy and affordable and in this episode of HR Power Hour, we will discuss how small and medium-sized businesses can make that happen.
