    Ebola: Fact or Fiction?

    There is no mistaking it. Today’s Americans are on heightened alert regarding their health. They want immediate answers.

    Treat your Body Like a Maserati

    I train every new hire at New Benefits and recently had the opportunity to work with a young millennial.  I quickly realized the training curriculum I’ve used in the past was going to be meaningless to this new employee as he knew nothing about the healthcare industry.

    Balancing Act

    I read a lot of HR blogs, benefit publications and employer surveys about how cost is a major factor when employers make benefits decisions. “Cost” is a broad term.

And employer groups have the unenviable task […]

  • Take That Stress and Shove It

    Take That Stress and Shove It

    In my last blog, I discussed how employee stress is costing companies a bundle. But what is the most common cause of anxiety in the workplace? In many cases, legal issues and financial problems are the source of employee stress. In fact, nearly two-fifths of HR professionals say employees have missed work due to a […]

  • Hello.  My Name is Dulce and I am Addicted to Change

    Hello. My Name is Dulce and I am Addicted to Change

    Plenty of people claim they embrace change, but we all know most of them are stretching the truth. I can tell you without hesitation that we not only embrace change—we’re addicted to it.
