NINE WORKFORCE TRENDS POST PANDEMIC

1. Contingent Workers

Expanded use of contingent workers is one of nine human resources trends that will impact the future of work following the Covid-19 pandemic, according to research from Gartner Inc.The research organization cited one of its surveys that found 32% of companies are replacing full-time employees with contingent workers as a cost-saving measure.
Using more contingent workers will provide greater workforce management flexibility, according to Gartner. 

“However, HR will also need to consider how performance management systems apply to contingent workers as well as questions around whether contingent workers will be eligible for the same benefits as their full-time peers.”


The other eight trends noted in the report are:


2. Increase in remote work. 

A Gartner analysis found 48% of employees will likely work remotely at least part of the time after Covid-19.


3. Expanded data collection.

Companies are increasing their passive tracking of workers. Already, 16% are tracking employees passively via methods such as virtual clocking in and out as well as tracking computer usage.


4. Employer as a social safety net. 

Employers will increase their involvement in the lives of the employees by increasing mental health support, expanding healthcare coverage and providing financial health support.


5. Separation of critical skills and roles. 

“Separating critical skills from critical roles shifts the focus to coaching employees to develop skills that potentially open multiple avenues for them, rather than focusing on preparing for a specific next role,” said Emily Rose McRae, director in the Gartner HR practice.


6. Humanization (and dehumanization) of workers.

“Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, some employees have formed more connected relationships, while others have moved into roles that are increasingly task oriented,” according to Gartner. “Understanding how to engage task workers in the team culture and creating a culture of inclusiveness is now even more important.”


7. Emergence of new top-tier employers. 

Employers must balance the concerns today with the long-term impact on their employer brands in upcoming years.

8. Shift from designing for efficiency to designing for resilience.

Gartner says 55% of organizational redesigns prior to the pandemic were focused on streamlining roles, supply chains and workflows to increase efficiency; however, this has led to fragile systems. After Covid-19, companies will focus more on resilience through activities such as training employees with cross-functional knowledge.


9. Increase in organization complexity. 

There will be an acceleration in M&A leading to larger companies and changes in operating models that will create challenges for HR leaders.

Easement and Title Insurance explained By Marla Janzen Trusted Saskatoon Real Estate Expert

Easements and Encroachments on a Property


What is Property Easement?

Property easement is defined as the right to facilitate a fraction of a property for a specified purpose. A survey will help decipher the property boundaries that will prevent any issues from determining land ownership. An easement can allow another person to encroach on your property and even though the lines are declared within the survey, these boundaries may be crossed without the owner’s express permission.  An easement can be included in the title or deed to the property. A prime example of an express easement would be if the power company wanted to run power lines onto a property or a neighbour might even want to enter an agreement to share common parts of the property that extend into both boundaries.  

A prescriptive or implied easement can occur if the use of property continues over an extended period of time.  A good instance of this would be if a neighbour has been crossing a boundary line for years then that neighbour could have obtained a prescriptive easement that will allow him to legally cross the property line.  Also, a “right of way” easement is nothing more than the allowance of someone to cross onto the property in question.  

Many people forget when they are buying a house that they are actually purchasing the land the house is built on and the boundary that surrounds it.  If you were to build a shed in your back yard and it happened to cross the land boundary into the property of another person this could technically be handled in a legal manner. This is something that can be avoided with proper surveys being done and the use of specified easements.

What about Title Insurance?

Title Insurance is a policy issued to the mortgage lender to protect against a defect in title. In Saskatchewan, the Land Titles system guarantees ownership of your land by title. Title Insurance policies provide no information about your property.

Only a Surveyor’s Real Property Report can assure you of the extent of your property and warn of any possible problems. Most of the time people are not going to worry about a few yards here and a few yards there, however, the same people who are okay with the encroachment might not always live there so it always is a good idea to get your bases covered legally and legitimately. This will ensure that down the road you are not going to wind up paying fines and going through a legal process that will cause nothing but problems.

Marla guarantees to provide you with a stress-free, hassle-free, wonderful experience and we are sure once you have met her that you will not contact anyone else!

Since 1949, Culligan Saskatoon's mission has been to deliver high-quality water treatment products that will benefit every part of their customers' lives. At Culligan, they understand that a water quality improvement system is an investment in your family. In their latest Saskatoon water tip they share Why Water is Essential For a Strong Immune System. Culligan are Trusted Saskatoon Water Experts

 



Water Is Essential For A Strong Immune System

We’re here when you need us: Culligan Saskatoon has been treating your water needs in Saskatoon and Surrounding areas since 1947. Our business is dedicated to making your water better using the best equipment, best service, and best prices around. We’re Family Owned: Our team lives and works in the local area and we’re a family owned and operated business. In our latest news  we share information on why water is Essential For a Strong Immune System.

Keeping ourselves healthy is a goal we can all share, and fortunately, there are steps we can take to boost our chances of staying well and fighting off infections. One is as easy as staying hydrated.


“Water is vital for the functioning of all of your organs, and it’s a huge part of keeping your immune system functioning at an optimal level,” says Dr. Jyothi Tirumalasetty, assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health in the department of clinical immunology and allergy. “We are made of 60 percent water. If we are dehydrated, the whole system of immunity could start breaking down.”


Proper hydration, along with adequate nutrition and sleep, is an essential component of a healthy immune system.

Dehydration Makes Us More Susceptible to Germs

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes the immune system as “our own private bodyguard” against infections and other harmful elements. It’s comprised of multiple components that include cells, tissues, and organs. One of those organs we know well: our skin. “It’s a barrier that protects you,” she says. When our skin barrier is impaired, it can become an open door for pathogens like bacteria and viruses to enter our bodies.

The immune system includes T cells that fight infection and work with B cells, which produce proteins called antibodies that travel through the blood. “Those antibodies are going to recognize pathogens and start switching around,” she says. “When they meet a new bacteria they say, ‘Oh, I need to change and learn to recognize this.’ The next time that enters your body, that antibody is going to attack it with full force.”

Dr. Tirumalasetty describes water as “a solvent” that helps these and other elements of the immune system work together. “Water carries important components of the immune system, including nutrients, to where they need to go and carries away waste from organs that are the byproducts of our everyday metabolism as we consume food and turn it into energy,” she says. If not flushed out, that waste has the potential to become toxic and weaken the immune system.

Make Hydration a Priority

In 2004, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine set general recommendations for daily water intake for healthy, sedentary people in temperate climates: about 2.7 litres (91 ounces) of water for women and about 3.7 litres (125 ounces) for men. The researchers found about 80 percent of people’s total water comes from drinking water and other beverages; the other 20 percent is derived from food.

However, Dr. Tirumalasetty stresses to her patients to switch to water instead of drinking more unhealthy options like juice and soda. She also says the amount of fluids individuals should drink largely depends on a number of factors. People who exercise a lot or are in hot climates likely need more than the recommended amount, for instance. Likewise, older adults with heart disease or kidney disease may need to limit their water intake if their bodies can’t regulate so much fluid.

The doctor says one universal rule is that by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Plan to drink plenty of water with meals and, if necessary, find ways to trick yourself into drinking it. Add flavoring to water, she says, or heat it up and add herbal tea. You should also eat water-rich foods, which include watermelon, strawberries and spinach.

“It’s just like getting eight hours of sleep and eating properly,” Dr. Tirumalasetty says. “Getting enough water is a huge component of wellness in my mind.”

Trusted Saskatoon IT Pro’s at Burnt Orange Solutions Owner Shares His Top 2020 IT Recommendations

Gareth McKee and his Trusted Saskatoon IT team at Burnt Orange, promise to have a one-hour response time for all your IT support needs. Honesty and respect are important to them. They pride themselves on ensuring their clients understand IT concerns by providing a straightforward and reliable solution with exceptional service.  Burnt Orange Solutions are your Trusted Saskatoon IT Experts and in their latest Saskatoon IT tip Gareth shares his Top 4 IT tips for 2020. 

BURNT ORANGE SOLUTIONS TOP 4 IT RECOMMENDATIONS IN 2020



Gareth has worked in the IT and Telecoms industry in a variety of guises since 1993. Initially in the UK military Gareth had to master a variety of technologies from Morse Code to Computer and Network Security. Gareth has spoken at national level at IT conferences and is well known in the industry throughout North America and the UK. He has a passion for customer service and IT security and compliance. 

#1 Microsoft Office 365/MS Teams

Microsoft Office 365 allows you to download apps like Excel, Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint to your computer or mobile device. You can also use this suite of tools completely online where you can manage, share, store, and edit documents in folders, giving access to all of your team.

Aside from the more specific apps, Microsoft Teams also allows you to communicate with your teammates via video calls, email, and through an internal discussion platform where your colleagues can create posts or ask questions.

 

 #2 Managed IT Security

Now, thanks to the Covid 19 Pandemic of 2020, most of us are all working from home, the need for a thorough look at your IT security is a must. The best way for any business to secure their computers, and more importantly their valuable business data, is to hand this job task over to a professional IT security firm.

The specially trained and tooled security firms use state of the art hard and software to ensure the client’s company is as safe as can be, this is whether the data is all in an office and being accessed from other offices, homes, or even Mars. This is not as expensive as it sounds and should be number 1 on any business owners list of things to do.


#3 Access To Business Data

There are many ways in which your staff can access your business data, keeping your business running, from home safely.

  1. Virtual Private Network (VPN) – A VPN allows you to logically lay a network cable from your computer at home directly into the network at the office. The VPN traffic should be encrypted to ensure it is transmitted from your office to home securely.
  2. File Sharing Software – DropBox or OneDrive can be used to easily share your data around your staff. Two thoughts on these solutions: 1. Do not use these as a backup, they are not a backup solution; 2. Your staff will now have your business data at home on their PCs, how do you plan to remove this once you are back in the office or a staff member leaves the business?
  3. Remote Data Access – This style of access data at the office is newer than the 2 options above and is set to be a disrupter in this area. Using zero trust as a starting point of access to your data from any device, never actually moving the data offsite and yet still providing access to all your data. It is difficult to describe how this works in a short article, so I found this video from FileFlex which explains beautifully. 

Back up

#4 Backup For Everyone

With more staff now working from home, whether they are on a work laptop or their home computer, the need for a managed backup is paramount. As data gets slowly moved away from your central office server it would be beneficial if all your home computers backed up to a central point where it can be easily recovered.


And, while I am talking backup, a backup that is not tested is not a backup. You should test recover some of your data at least once per month, nothing sets of a panic like a backup which is thought to have worked, but in fact fails when the day comes that you need to recover. – Thanks Gareth

Trusted Saskatoon Pet Experts at Furbaby Pet Care Explain Their 24 Hour Saskatoon Pet Care

Furbaby Pet Care in Saskatoon, SK, is dedicated to giving you peace of mind with the highest level of care for your pets. Their knowledgeable, experienced and professional staff will meet with your family to ensure your pet care needs are understood and every detail is covered! They have the expertise and experience that you need. Furbaby Pet Care Are Your Trusted Saskatoon Pet sitters, Pet walkers and Pet Massage Specialists and in their latest Saskatoon pet care tip they share why 24 hour pet care is always the best kennelling option. 


Why 24 Hour Pet Care From Furbaby is the Best Option For Your Saskatoon Pet.

Often, when pets are facility boarded, they are kennelled for the night and many times for long portions of the day. Basically, they are placed in solitary confinement for long stretches. For a dog or cat that’s used to running, free roaming and unfettered access to a house, yard or run, this can be a torturous and arduous experience, leading to long-term trauma, stress and mental anguish with lengthy affects on the rest of the animal’s life.


Pets belong with people. There would be no pets without their people. Otherwise, they’re just animals. So why put yours through something so stressful, scarring and traumatic?


24 Hour Pet Care, with people there for your pets all day, every day- this is how I want my dog cared for. Knowing there is always a person there if my dog needs a hug, or to lick a shin, a hand or a forehead, that’s a deep comfort to me and it has to be for my dog too! Jocelyn, Owner of Furbaby Pet Care

Seek out a true 24 Hour pet care facility for your pet and feel better, knowing that total care means the same thing to you that it means to them when you need someone to watch over your pet when you simply must go away. Be sure that it is truly 24Hr care, too, because while a lot of places may make that claim, hardly any follow through with living humans to watch over your best friends.

This is what we provide at Furbaby Campus: 24 hours of unconditional love and safety, every day of the year.
