“When we learned about the opportunity to provide the screening of the documentary film Angst to the community and to be part of a movement to bring awareness to, and help eradicate, the stigma around anxiety, I couldn’t pass up the chance for Ulliance to support this great cause,” said Kent Sharkey, President and CEO of Ulliance.  “This is what we do every day for our clients’ employees and/or students—provide emotional well-being through our employee (EAP) and student assistance programs (SAP). What a great opportunity to partner with a long-time client that utilizes both our EAP and SAP services, Madonna University, to host the screening on their campus,” Sharkey added.

 “This powerful film shows how students really feel about anxiety.  It is a large part of daily life for persons of all ages, yet not everyone feels they can talk about it.  We are honored to host this documentary on our campus to open the conversation with students, staff, faculty, and our community about resources that can provide hope” said Christine Benson, Ph.D., Madonna University assistant vice president and dean of students.

 

There is a special cameo appearance in the film by Michael Phelps

Ensure Success of Your New Hire

Attracting and retaining talent has become a hot topic of late because of a thriving job market. Human resources professionals want to have a well-planned orientation for a new team member to ensure success for everyone involved.

As seen in the previous well-being blog "Improve Employee Retention", it costs 30-50 percent of an employee's salary to hire their replacement - and could be up to 400 percent depending on the position.

This means when bringing on a new team member, return on investment is critical. The process begins before day one, and is ongoing. A thorough and thoughtful on boarding process can help improve employee retention, and help new hires feel more comfortable and connected in their new position.
