While many HR executives might approach nurse turnover with more money and benefits, the single best first step is to place a dollar value on each exit and insert that data into monthly turnover reports. Why start here? Because CNOs, CFOs, and then CEOs eventually understand turnover in the language they speak and are far more open to your solutions as health care HR leaders.

Hospitals slowly make headway in diversity efforts

EEOC criminal background check guidance: How to conduct 'individualized assessment'
In its newly updated guidance EEOC on criminal convictions in the hiring process, EEOC recommends that all employer policies allow for what the commission calls an individualized assessment. Here's what it means: If an applicant — or an existing employee — has a criminal conviction on his or her record that your policy would screen him or her out of consideration for a job, the commission wants you to go further.

Do white men really need diversity outreach?
Workplace diversity includes all employees. But how do you reach white men and make them understand that they are part of diversity? Generating buy-in from white men is a challenge in some companies, especially for middle management. Even the DiversityInc Top 50 companies are split on strategies, with some choosing to directly focus on white men as a demographic group while others insist they are included in all diversity efforts.

Bullies increasingly targeting older workers: What to look for
HR Morning Share
Whether it's managers that are trying to push older staffers out, or younger co-workers who feel more mature employees are keeping them from moving up, the incidents of bullying aimed at older employees seems to be on the rise. The proof: Twenty-nine percent of employees age 55 and older said they've been bullied at work, according to a recent CareerBuilder study. More
Workplace authenticity: Hiding who you are at work linked with lower job satisfaction
The Huffington Post Share
Living with authenticity has been linked in numerous studies to greater psychological health and well-being. And now, a new study shows that authenticity at work matters, too. New research from Rice University, the University of Houston and George Mason University shows that hiding who you truly are at work is linked with lower levels of job satisfaction. The findings are published in the journal Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology. More
Study: US racial gap in life expectancy shrinks
Whites in the United States have typically lived longer on average than blacks, but a new study suggests that gap in life expectancy may be shrinking. The shift appears to be because fewer African-Americans are dying of AIDS and heart disease, but also because more whites are dying in early and mid-adulthood from unintentional injuries — mainly poisonings, including prescription drug overdoses, researchers said.

7 things NEVER to say to people with disabilities
Diversity Inc. Share
We've all heard them. Culturally insensitive terms such as "handicapped," "retarded" and "slow" used to refer to people with disabilities, or "compliments" such as "but you look so good," directed at people whose disabilities aren't obvious. While those using the terms may not mean to be insensitive, that doesn't make the words less hurtful. More
Is that degree really necessary?
Human Resource Executive Online Share
Education requirements have long been a common, almost standard, part of job postings. But have you ever stopped to consider the lawfulness of this particular prerequisite? The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has. A recent EEOC letter opines that, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, "if an employer adopts a high school diploma requirement for a job, and that requirement 'screens out' an individual who is unable to graduate because of a condition that meets the ADA's definition of 'disability,' the employer may not apply the standard unless it can demonstrate that the diploma requirement is job-related and consistent with business necessity."

Black Enterprise Share
Every company wants the new generation of innovative and vibrant talent, but few companies have figured out how to successfully retain the "rockstars" who can help catapult your company or team to the next level. Retaining phenomenal talent has always been difficult, but doing so with this demographic poses new challenges: Salary and title are no longer enough, because Gen Y has a completely different barometer of success and happiness.

Gender pay gap persists as women age
Time doesn't help working women when it comes to the gender pay gap. On average, women with college degrees or higher see their pay stop growing at about age 39, while men continue to see wage increases until they're 48, according to a new report by PayScale, an online compensation data company.

Becker's Hospital Review Share
Children's Hospital of Colorado in Aurora will pay $95,000 to settle allegations it discriminated against a job applicant with fibromyalgia after rescinding her offer following a preemployment health screening, according to news reports. The suit, filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on the applicant's behalf, alleged the hospital violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by withdrawing the job offer. More
Is ageism widespread in the workplace?
Fox News Share
Ageism is the last of the -isms (racism, sexism) to get any attention, especially in the workplace. But ageism is rampant. Once workers hit 50 or 55, they start to worry about how their age is perceived and whether they will be passed over for a job or promotion. And for good reason. More
