Lending Money to Your Needy

Exodus 22:25

25If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not treat it like a business deal; charge no interest.

I once worked for a company who, on occasion, would loan employees money when they were down and out. I thought, this is great! This company cares so much about their employees that they are willing to loan them money to see them through hard times. Well, it did not take me long to find out that they were charging interest to these same employees. Not only is it wrong from a personal, moral perspective, but it is also illegal. This, my friends, was a company that, at the same time, professed Christian values! When challenged, the leadership that made this decision simply said they felt they were helping their people by providing a lower rate than a bank would have, and sparing them the hassle of having to go through the loan process.

Are you treating your employees with honor and respect?

Well, rationalizing it as helping employees might make them feel better but, after spending more time at this same company, I discovered they were cheating their employees in a number of ways. Shameful. So, Christian Leaders, ask yourself today: are you caring for your people? If they came to you for a loan, would you humbly offer it to them interest-free, as if it were God’s money and not yours? If you are, you are truly building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.

Workplace Requirements Have Changed — Have You?

Proverbs 14:23

 23All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

Hard work. When most people think of hard work, they think of manual work, production and agricultural jobs that require physical strength. Many of the hardest jobs that we began this century doing no longer exist! They have been replaced with robotics and automation. But that does not mean that hard work no longer exists. Hard work is now better defined as work that requires multiple skills and multitasking. 

Appreciate and be empathetic with your Team

As we advance our businesses, we must never forget that what might seem easier now might not necessarily be easier; it is done instead with less physical strength but greater amounts of decision-making and dexterity.  Do you lead with heart?  If you are appreciative and empathetic of your employees’ work, if you know what it is like to walk in their shoes for a day, you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.

CLA Guest Post- Yahoo! Scrapped Telecommuting—Should You?

When working remotely is a bad idea

As a long-time veteran in the field of human resources (HR), I’ve seen telecommuting storm onto the scene through advances in technology. Telecommuting employees complete work from remote locations, and sometimes the method backfires.

In February 2013, Yahoo!’s CEO, Marissa Mayer, killed the long-standing policy that allowed employees to work from home. The news sent shockwaves in every direction, especially throughout high-tech industries. Many wondered whether the decision was a step backward and a signal of changes to come elsewhere.
