I manage a 4-person help desk where I serve as a technical lead. Our boss has suggested we try doing a compressed 4-10 schedule where we work four 10-hour days (as opposed to five 8-hour days) so that everyone gets a 3-day weekend.

Since five holidays per year fall on Mondays, I didn't want to designate anyone as always off Monday or Friday. I want to rotate it to keep things even. On top of that, our employer only pays 8 hours of holiday pay so on holiday weeks the employee will have a wonky schedule as they only need 32 hours total.

So I have two questions that are tied together:

1. Have you ever tried working this kind of schedule before?
2. Is there any free scheduling software or even an Excel plugin that I could use to generate such a schedule?

I would like to develop a new hire onboarding process  for the department I am currently working in.   The department is in still in startup phase even though it has been functioning for about 3 years.  It currently does not have anything in place at the moment to guide employees.   New employees are being thrown into projects and have no idea what is expected of them or what to do.  It is very chaotic and unproductive.  

I have started the process of building documentation and/or training videos or links to videos.  I need a suggestion of a tool that can be used to locate everything with the onboarding process.  Someone suggested developing a Wiki.  I want to know if this is a good suggestion or department portal page?  Something that would quick and easy for the new employee to access.   Suggestions on the developments of a tool would be greatly appreciated?

we are looking at controls for a new HR and Payroll system. We need to ensure users permissions in the system are free from fraud/misuse, through effective separation of duties and granting of access permissions. Are there any specific types of permission in HR and payroll systems where no one officer should be able to perform multiple tasks without a secondary officer involved, e.g. separation of duties/'high risk' functions from a fraud/inappropriate use angle.

Hi,

I'm currently looking to hire two additional PHP developers on my team.

I've interviewed quote a few which have good experience, and they talk a good game... however it's hard to know how good they actually will be until they are hired.

Can any of you recommend additional questions or maybe a test to give each candidate in order to assess them further?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a client that uses exclusively Office365.  They use the one drive feature to share between users as you would normally.  When a person is leaves the company, what is the recommended way to move all that person's files for review before we delete them?  I can access the files, but other than "share this file" it doesn't really look like there is a "transfer ownership" and just simply move all the files to the new person or the supervisor for review/final deletion.

What do you guys usually do for the routine change of employees in Office 365?

Hi,  I am looking to design a profit sharing scheme that would take into account the job level of the employee, the performance of the geographic region, and the individual performance level.  The first can be a number between 1 and 7 or a dollar amount, the second will be the achievement of projected profit, and the third will be a number between 1 and 5.  Is there anyway to calculate a final contribution without making it the percentage of a cap?  The total pool for each geographic regional will be a straight percentage of profits.

i.e. 15% of profits might be 10 million for ease of calculation.  For thirty employees, is there some formula that will reward each employee a portion of that 10 million based on their job level, achievement of projected profit, and ind. performance???

Thank you!
