The Challenges of Today’s Workforce

Our Training was a success! Thank you so much to those of you who were able to make it out to yesterday’s Management Training session! Our training began with Roger Trueba talking about the four categories of today’s workforce:

  • Baby Boomers
  • Generation X
  • Millennials (Generation Y)
  • Generation Z

Roger touched on the pros & cons of each generation and how to utilize them in your organization. Each generation comes with their own mindset on their career path and where they see their future in your company. He teaches us that we don’t need to be apprehensive of the new generations that are coming into the workforce, but to adapt and be open to the knowledge and ambition that comes with them.

We closed with the discussion of the possibility of a new FLSA law taking affect, presented by MariaElena (M.E.) Ayala, VP of HR & Client Services. The possible new law proposes changes to the salary base for most white collar exemptions: Executive, Administrative and Professional Exemptions of the FLSA. This affect will potentially increase the salary requirement from $455 per week ($23,660/year) to $970 per week ($50,440/year). DOL’s rationale is that the new salary level reflects the 40th percentile of earnings for full-time salaried employees.

We recommend that you review current positions in the “threshold” and determine feasibility of the following;

  • Revisions of extent of non-exempt amount of work performed by exempt employees.
  • Increase Pay
  • Reduce Hours
  • Restructure pay to account for regular and overtime hours
