We all know salary is important when it comes to considering a new job offer. But according to a Care.com Workplace Solutions Better Benefits Survey, better family/lifestyle benefits such as family-care assistance, a flex work schedule and paid parental leave directly impact an employee’s decision to make that final move. That is especially true for millennials, who represent 90 percent of new parents according to Goldman Sachs, with 83 percent willing to make a job change based on family/lifestyle benefits. In addition, 41 percent of working parents say a lack of these family assistance-related benefits have even negatively impacted their work performance.

 

“Our survey results show a direct correlation between family care benefits and workplace performance, as well as employee recruitment and retention,” said Donna Levin, co-founder and vice president of Care.com Global Workplace Solutions. “The lack of these benefits is affecting employees’ overall work performance, and impacting companies in lost productivity and reduced employee retention. With the largest part of today’s workforce comprised of millennials and this generation representing 90 percent of new mothers in 2014, it’s especially important for employers to take this generation’s needs into consideration.”

No matter what your job title, chances are you engage in workplace negotiations every day. Whether selling products or services to clients, vying for more company resources, driving your ideas through to completion or simply managing the day-to-day workload, being able to successfully negotiate with others is essential for success.

 

At its core, negotiation is really about persuasion — how you present your ideas to others in a way that moves them to agree with you, to reach a meaningful compromise or to take action. Researchers have identified six fundamental principles of persuasion — or influence — that do not involve the merits of the proposal but rather the way in which you communicate them. When you understand and use these principles ethically, you can become a more effective negotiator.

In today's hypercompetitive global economy, talent is often your most valuable weapon. If you're like most business leaders, you're not above engaging in a little employee-poaching to improve your position. After all, if you can entice an MVP from another company to enlist in your ranks, you'll deprive the competition of a key asset while taking immediate advantage of your new hire's previous training and experience. Best of all, this kind of hiring is perfectly legal, right?

 

Well yes ... except when it's not. There are two scenarios that tend to get companies in trouble when they woo workers away from a previous employer.

 

The first is hiring a new employee with the intention of gaining access to confidential information about another company. The second is simply being sloppy about on-boarding new hires and unintentionally allowing them to bring confidential data, knowledge or methods into their new position.
