Get started today for a healthier you.

It doesn’t take much to make wellness programs pay off for your company. To help get your company building a wellness program call StaffScapes, Inc. today. Other ways to help you get started on your wellness program include:

*Starting with corporate employees. Have your top employees lead by example. One way might be walking around for a meeting instead of sitting. Once the upper management gets aboard then others will follow.

*Encourage employees to lead a healthy lifestyle starting from hiring and continuing

*Include the family

*As employees their advice. What would they like to see in a wellness program? Keep them involved through out the program

*Support the program through encouragement and opportunity for everyone

*Keep the program consistent.

*Set goals and evaluate after a couple months

New vacation policy for employer in Washington DC

The Washington, D.C. City Council has passed  the “Accrued Safe & Sick Leave Act of 2008”.  The measure provides mandatory benefits for employees whose employers are based in D.C.  This measure would require all city businesses based in the District to provide workers paid sick leave.  Employers with 100 or more employees must provide at least one hour of paid leave for every 37 hours worked.  Employers with at least 25 employees but not more than 99 employees must provide at least one hour of paid leave for every 52 hours worked.  Employers with 24 or fewer employees shall provide not less than one hour of paid leaves for every 87 hours worked.   Because the act is emergency legislation, it must be presented for a second reading and vote before the council.  NAPEO is working with city council members to clarify the language so that clients of PEOs that would otherwise not be subject to the mandate do not become so by virtue of engaging a PEO.
