Dive Brief:

  • Esri, a digital mapping and analytics company based in Redlands, California, will pay $2.3 million in back pay and interest to resolve the U.S. Department of Labor’s allegations of pay discrimination, the agency announced August 3.  
  • According to DOL, preliminary findings of a federal compliance evaluation revealed that Esri systematically discriminated against 143 female software development engineers and 33 female quality assurance engineers in 2017. 
  • “Esri has resolved a matter with the OFCCP, initiated from a routine audit of the 2017 plan year,” the company said in a statement released to HR Dive. “Esri has taken steps to adjust internal job classifications and will move ahead with OFCCP’s recommendations. It is always Esri’s intention to be fair and equitable and we are committed to continuing to Excellerate our organization.”

Dive Insight:

Employers are prohibited from pay discrimination by a few laws: the Equal Pay Act, which amends the Fair Labor Standards Act, prohibits employers from pay discrimination based on sex; a range of other laws, which prohibit pay discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy status, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability and genetic information; and Executive Order 11246, which prohibits pay discrimination by federal contractors.

Although pay discrimination is illegal, research shows it persists. According to a 2020 survey by the job site Hired, tech companies offered men higher salaries for the same job 63% of the time. Hired chalked up this outcome in part to an expectation gap: “Salary expectations any candidate has for a given job are closely tied to the salary ultimately offered to them by a prospective employer,” then-CEO Mehul Patel wrote in his introduction to the report. “Our data reveals male candidates expect to earn more and our report shows their offers match that expectation.

Hired attributed the expectation gap to women being more prone to imposter syndrome. The report collected responses from women who noted they were less likely to talk about their accomplishments than male counterparts, and that they often didn’t know a wage gap existed due to a lack of salary transparency. 

But even when women took action to address the disparity, they were less successful than men, the report found. Fifty-seven percent of men said they were able to negotiate a pay increase from an initial offer, compared to 50% of women.

The DOL has put significant effort into its wage and hour enforcement this year, cracking down on unpaid overtime, misclassifications and child labor violations, among others. 

In May, the agency brought a similar pay discrimination charge against LinkedIn, which settled the allegations for $1.8 million, although it said it disagreed with the finding.

Killexams : FP Answers: When should I take CPP?

The timing for collecting benefits is more important than seniors think

Article content

FP Answers has received a mountain of questions about the Canada Pension Plan, from who qualifies to how it is calculated to why Canadians can’t contribute more. But by far the most popular question is: When should I take CPP? We asked Jason Heath, an advice-only certified financial planner to provide an answer to one of the most pressing questions in retirement.

The standard age for a Canada Pension Plan (CPP) pension is 65, but applicants can begin their pension any time between ages 60 and 70. But the timing is much more important than most seniors think. Indeed, the average 65-year-old entitled to the maximum pension could be forgoing more than $120,000 in future retirement income. Applying before age 65 results in a reduction to your pension of 0.6 per cent per month, or 7.2 per cent per year, while the increase after age 65 is 0.7 per cent per month, or 8.4 per cent per year.

In 2021, 31 per cent of applicants began their pensions at age 60 and another 31 per cent at age 65. The rest applied at different ages, with only 11 per cent waiting to age 70. There was a big shift between 2019 and 2020. In 2019, only two per cent delayed the start of CPP to age 70. The percentage was similarly small in previous years. In 2020, for some reason, it jumped to 10 per cent.

There are several factors to consider if you are deciding when to start CPP. A key one is life expectancy. A 65-year-old woman has a 50-per-cent probability of living to age 91 and a 65-year-old man has a 50-per-cent probability of living to age 89. As a result, women are generally better off deferring their CPP than men. But both sexes should consider it if they are in good health or have a good family history.

If a 65-year-old woman entitled to the maximum CPP starts her retirement pension right away this year, she could receive about $507,000 if she lives to age 91. By comparison, if she delayed the start of her pension to age 70, she could receive about $641,000 — a difference of about $134,000. For a man who lives to age 89, the difference could be about $110,000.

These figures do not reflect the time value of money, though it’s important to note that CPP benefits are increased each January based on the change in the consumer price index. Nevertheless, a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow because it can be invested or, alternatively, receiving it as income today can avoid needing to withdraw another dollar of invested assets.

If we assume a three-per-cent discount rate or after-tax return on invested assets, the age 70 applicant in our example would still be about $62,000 better off if she lived to age 91 compared to starting CPP at age 65, and a man would be about $50,000 better off at age 89.

The breakeven ages range from 77 to 82 using a three-per-cent discount rate, and 79 to 84 using a five-per-cent discount rate. The point is a retiree who lives well into their 80s will likely be better off deferring their pension compared to starting earlier.

If you have less than 39 years of maximum contributions to the CPP and retire before age 65, delaying CPP has other implications. Years without contributions between 60 and 65 can result in a small reduction in your CPP entitlement of about 2.7 per cent per year on average, a reduction that is less than the 7.2 per cent increase in your pension for delaying it. The same life expectancy logic still applies: the longer one’s life expectancy, the more beneficial it is to consider delaying CPP.

The larger a retiree’s RRSP balance, the more beneficial it may be to draw down their RRSP at lower tax rates in their 60s by deferring optional income such as CPP until age 70.

Self-directed investors may also benefit from CPP deferral since it may become harder to manage their own investments later in life. As a DIY investor ages, their risk tolerance might also decrease, or they may need to pay investment management fees that reduce net returns.

Low-income retirees can benefit from CPP deferral. This may help them qualify for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) after age 65 if their income is less than about $20,000 if single or combined income is under about $27,000, and up to about $48,000 if married. Deferring CPP can keep income low and increase GIS entitlement.

Those who are widowed and receiving a CPP survivor benefit should consider deferring their CPP. A survivor is entitled to their own CPP benefits plus a portion of their deceased spouse’s benefits. If the survivor’s retirement pension is high, they may benefit from receiving the survivor benefit as long as possible, potentially deferring the start of their retirement pension up to age 70.

CPP disability benefits are generally higher than CPP retirement benefits, and automatically convert at 65 to a retirement benefit. A CPP disability recipient may benefit from deferring their retirement pension until at least age 65.

But if you have debt, especially high-interest-rate debt, having more cash flow to pay it down earlier may outweigh deferring CPP. Also, an aggressive investor who expects to earn a high rate of return may be better off preserving their investments and starting CPP earlier. As previously mentioned, using a five-per-cent discount rate compared to three per cent pushes back the breakeven age to benefit from CPP deferral by about two years.

Retirees who have defined-benefit (DB) pensions may be better off considering an early start to their CPP as well. DB pensions already provide protection from the risk of living too long, so it may be less important to those who have them to delay and increase their future CPP.

    FP Answers: What is the benefit of a graduated rate estate when doing estate planning?

If you are an employee who is still working and you have more than the maximum 39 years of contributions, there can be a benefit to starting CPP early. The reason is contributions are mandatory before 65 and optional after 65, but can only increase your CPP beyond the maximum if you are receiving it. This post-retirement benefit (PRB) increases your pension by up to 2.5 per cent of the maximum for each year of maximum contributions. The breakeven point is only six to eight years after contributing towards the PRB depending on age, so contributing while receiving CPP is generally advantageous.

But life expectancy is probably the biggest factor that impacts the CPP timing decision. My mother was in good health in her early 60s and I encouraged her to defer the start of her pension for this and other reasons. Unfortunately, she developed a terminal illness and died when she was 66. She began her CPP once we knew she was sick. One of her fears, like many others, was running out of money. If you die young, you may be less likely to run out. Those who live to age 100 are arguably more at risk and CPP deferral protects against this risk.

If we knew how long we would live, it would help with decisions such as when to start CPP, as well as other financial and non-financial choices. My best advice to those considering a CPP application is the same advice that I gave to my own mother: consider all the factors and make a personal decision on that basis. If circumstances change, so can your timing decision.

Killexams : OAS pension payments have permanently risen for the first time since 1973. Here’s why retirees should defer them

The Canadian government has just made good on its 2021 budget promise. Starting last week, it permanently increased Old Age Security payments by 10 per cent for seniors age 75 and older, marking the first permanent increase to the OAS pension since 1973. Retiring Canadians can maximize this boost by delaying uptake of their OAS benefits, either by working longer or by using their savings to fund the delay.

Why will the 10-per-cent boost help?

Baby boomers – a quarter of Canada’s population – are moving into a retirement that will look vastly different from that of their parents, especially at older ages.

With increasing longevity and fewer adult children to support them as they get older, more seniors will have to pay for care services as they age, either out of pocket or from the public purse. Strengthening retirement income security for the oldest demographic is a step in the right direction.

Delaying OAS

Most retiring Canadians aren’t aware of it, but they already have a lever to Excellerate their financial security prospects. Seniors aren’t required to take OAS at age 65. They can defer their OAS pension for up to five years, in return for a monthly payment that is increased by 0.6 per cent for each month the pension is deferred – up to a maximum of 36 per cent more, if OAS is claimed at age 70.

Delaying public pensions – and getting more worry-free, inflation-indexed pension income that’s guaranteed for life – is a great financial strategy for improving long-term retirement income security. In fact, when to start taking public pensions such as OAS, Canada and Quebec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) benefits, is one of the most important financial decisions that Canadians make at retirement.

The boost plus delaying OAS

One side effect of the latest increase to OAS is that it makes delaying retirement benefits even more financially rewarding.

To illustrate the opportunity created by the 10 per cent improvement, let’s take a closer look at the concept of “Lifetime Loss,” introduced in Bonnie-Jeanne’s 2020 National Institute on Ageing research report with FP Canada Research Foundation. Lifetime loss is a straightforward calculation that captures how much money a person can expect to lose by taking their public pension benefits at an earlier rather than a later age.

Up until the 2021 federal budget, an average Canadian could have expected to lose almost $10,000 – in today’s dollars – by taking OAS at age 65 instead of age 70. The additional post-75 10-per-cent boost increases that incentive to wait.

In fact, the post-75 10-per-cent boost means the average Canadian is giving up $13,000 in lifetime income – $9,000 for men and $17,000 for women, in today’s dollars – by not delaying benefits. For Canadians who live longer than average, the genuine lifetime loss will be even more.

Putting it into practice: A 65-year-old who takes OAS immediately can expect to receive $666.83 monthly, in today’s dollars for 10 years, to age 75, and can expect to receive $733.51 monthly after that. With a life expectancy of 88.5 years for women, this is a total of $198,849.

The total income for taking OAS at age 70 is $216,021, making the lifetime loss from taking OAS at age 65 as follows: $216,021 (OAS at age 70) minus $198,849 (OAS at age 65), or $17,172.

Not only is a person who is holding on to their savings expecting to lose money, they’re also taking on more risk by forfeiting protection against financial markets, high inflation, living longer than anticipated and the challenges of managing investments late in life.

More reasons to wait

Having greater retirement income security isn’t the only reason to consider postponing your OAS benefits. Here are three more:

  • Reducing Guaranteed Income Supplements clawbacks: OAS doesn’t factor into the income test for GIS benefits. Lower-income seniors wishing to avoid GIS income-tested clawbacks may find that using their RRSP savings to defer and boost their OAS benefits has the added advantage of preserving GIS payments after age 70, when withdrawals from their registered retirement income fund would otherwise cut into GIS benefits.
  • Better OAS benefits despite clawbacks: At the other end of the spectrum, if you have enough retirement income to fall into the OAS clawback range, the age 75 boost and the 0.6 per cent a month postponement adjustment increase the benefit but not the clawback, leaving payments that would have otherwise not been available.
  • Increasing residency requirements: To qualify for an OAS pension, you need to have lived in Canada for at least 10 years after age 18. If you have less than 40 years of residency, you will receive a prorated partial payment based on the number of years of Canadian residency divided by 40. You can benefit from postponing OAS to extend your period of residency (but not beyond age 70).

With the latest experience of high inflation, financial market losses and the vulnerabilities of older seniors highlighted by the pandemic, there are a lot of reasons why delaying OAS is particularly attractive today. When you’re 20 years into retirement, you may have forgotten why you decided to do it – but you’ll almost certainly be happy that you did.

Killexams : New disc golf course planned for Hamlet

HAMLET — A tentative plan is in the works for a 18-hole disc golf course at City Lake in Hamlet.

Chris McDonald, president of the Richmond County Disc Golf Group and an associate planner in Charlotte, presented the concept to the Hamlet City Council at their July meeting about the plan.

Both McDonald and Hamlet City Manager Matt Christian said the plan received unanimous praise from the council.

The RCDGG was a product of COVID-19 and formed in the summer of 2020. It became an official LLC in mid-2021, with over 70 current paying members.

“When we started, we probably had maybe 12 people show up to our doubles events,” McDonald said. “Our league now has 30+ people showing up every week.”

McDonald said their is a desire to grow the group and have another destination not just for local residents, but something that could attract people from Wilmington and Charlotte.

Charlotte is considered the disc golf capital of the world, boasting over 50 courses in the area. The Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship takes place at Hornet’s Nest park in Charlotte, and the United States Disc Golf Championship is held at Winthrop University in nearby Rock Hill, SC.

The USDGC in 2021 shattered their previous attendance record and had over 3,500 spectators in a single day. Disc golf was one of the few sports that was relatively unscathed by the pandemic, and a major surge in public interest propelled the sport while others struggled.

Rockingham already has a course at Hinson Lake, and Richmond Community College has a six-hole course adjacent to their lake. The Hinson Lake Classic, a tournament led by McDonald, hosted over 70 competitors in October. McDonald also runs a sanctioned Professional Disc Golf League at Hinson Lake, which attracts competitors from Southern Pines and Laurinburg. There is also a course at South Piedmont Community College in Polkton in Anson County.

“If we’re going to bring a new course to the area, we want to bring something that will bring people from further away,” McDonald said about the plan for the Hamlet course.

McDonald said that Hinson Lake is a great course, but caters more toward beginners. This new course would include multiple Par 4 holes of around 6oo feet, and a Par 5 hole of 900 feet.

Hamlet City Manager Matt Christian said he was first approached by McDonald about the concept last July.

“It seems like a really great project that would benefit the [RCDGC} and the citizens of Hamlet,” Christian said. “It would maybe give people a reason to come visit us.”

The planned budget is around $30,000-40,000 at this time, with money going toward landscaping, baskets, teepads and trashcans. There is no financial commitment from Hamlet at this time. Christian added that some of their equipment could be used to assist in the project.

“City Lake Park is a huge asset, and having another thing to do their is a very positive thing,” Christian said.

Before any fundraising takes place, there would be another visit by McDonald to the council.

The project is still in a feasibility phase at this time. The next step is for McDonald to is physically walk the property and receive input from any stakeholders.

“I think the biggest thing is trying to figure out, is the land usable?” McDonald said, adding that he will be using GIS layers to determine elevation, property levels and marshiness.

A tentative completion date for the project is late-summer of 2023. For more information about the RCDGG, visit www.rcdgc.com

“It seems like a really great project that would benefit the [RCDGC} and the citizens of Hamlet,” Christian said. “If anyone can get this project done, it’s Chris and the momentum of the Richmond County Disc Golf Group.”

Course collector visits Richmond County

Lowe Bibby has played over 850 disc golf courses in the United States, and traveled as far as Hawaii.

In North Carolina alone, he’s played about 390 courses. In February of 2021, he finished playing every course in Virginia, totaling about 160.

“It’s always a short lived goal,” Bibby said. “Since that time, they’ve probably added about 10-15 courses!”

His journey as a course collector led him to Smith Acres, a private disc golf course operated by Brian and T.J. Smith, on July 16. Bibby puts all of his reviews on the website DG Course Review. He’s currently ranked top ten in the world for courses played.

“Some people are like, ‘You gotta be nuts to go out and play all these little courses over the state,’” Bibby said. “I love seeing the little towns. I’m going places I would have never been to otherwise.”

Bibby, who has been playing since 1979, moved to Charlotte primarily for disc golf.

“Worldwide, it’s one of the top cities for disc golf,” he said, adding that a dream destination for him is playing in Finland.

Bibby wants to put his course collecting journey to good use. He’s consulted on the design of a few disc golf courses, and aspires to one day design his own course.

As he left Smith Acres (and collecting some hard-earned prize money for a third-place finish with partner Dexter Mabe), Bibby shared that he was traveling to Asheville the very next day to check out another course, keeping up with the fact that he’s played every NC course west of Greensboro. While he puts in long hours on the road driving, he said he just likes to think and pray during his travels.

“Every course, there’s always at least one hole that makes it worthwhile to go to,” Bibby said. “I love to learn and am always improving my game.”

Killexams : The Value Of Mobile: Lessons Learned From The Pandemic

CEO and Founder of InterPro Solutions, offering a suite of award-winning mobile Ops & Maintenance apps designed exclusively for IBM Maximo.

Over the past two years, I—and others—in the mobile technology industry have written about how mobile solutions became invaluable tools in maintaining and managing physical assets in large facilities ranging from college campuses to power generation plants, hospitals and more during the pandemic.

The driving factor for mobile asset management solution adoption during the pandemic was that these solutions minimized person-to-person contact. Instead of dozens of technicians reporting to the dispatch office each morning to pick up paper maintenance and repair work orders, assignments were distributed via mobile apps. At the end of the day, that return trip to the dispatch office was also eliminated since all work details were captured at point of service via the technician’s mobile device. The value equation was very clear—eliminate the need for the technicians to gather and therefore minimize the chance of person-to-person transmission of the virus.

While mobile solutions were effective in minimizing person-to-person contact, there were additional lessons learned and business benefits captured beyond the initial safety imperatives.

Capturing accurate, detailed data is crucial.

By arming technicians with mobile devices, facilities had a real-time view into work activities. With the use of NFC (near field communication) tags, geo-fencing and built-in bar code readers, maintenance managers were instantly aware when a technician arrived on the job. As the technician input work details, along with start and stop times, crew managers had real-time updates on the progress of repairs. Using in-app messaging, crew members could consult with each other without face-to-face contact—with the added benefit of that conversation being saved to the work record.

Using other capabilities such as voice-to-text, technicians captured details on issues and provided important notes for the next technician. Needless to say, this was more efficient than returning a paper work order back to the dispatch office to be typed into the organization’s enterprise asset management system.

Use data to predict and prepare for future problems.

The big “ah-ha” with this switch to mobile was the improvement in data quality, which directly translated to increased uptime for the machinery and equipment. Now instead of asking the data entry team to decipher handwritten service notes, technicians are prompted to capture data in a structured way, including the ability to make the capture of certain data elements mandatory.

This structured data capture then opened the door for data analysis and modeling to predict, and therefore prevent, equipment failures. The use of voice-to-text, audio and pictures to document asset health translated to reduced repair hours and increased first-fix rates—armed with a full understanding of the repair history and prior diagnostics, problems can be diagnosed quicker, and technicians can arrive with the proper tools and parts in hand.

Focus on efficiencies.

Other device features, such as maps, provided massive efficiencies. Maps were able to guide technicians to the proper address or building, and with GIS, also to the correct floor and exact asset location—even when the asset was inside a wall or internal to a large piece of equipment. In addition, mapping capabilities allow schedulers to group jobs by proximity to minimize travel time or optimize routes for technicians who travel to perform inspections.

For more mature mobile installations, the list goes on. Using apps, organizations could directly capture labor hours for each job, and in many instances, integrate with HR and payroll systems. Other organizations extended their mobile functionality to enable parts requests from stock rooms and even generate requisitions and/or purchase orders for items not in stock. Many have also equipped their outside vendors, e.g., elevator technicians or licensed tradesman that they don’t have on staff, to generate the same efficiencies they’re enjoying with their in-house maintenance team.

Spend time researching in order to create meaningful solutions.

If your organization has yet to invest in a mobile asset management solution, or you’re just getting started, understand that it’s a journey, not a one-time fix. Don’t fall into the trap of replicating a paper form on a mobile device—spend the time to think through which data are critical to your operation. Are you asking for data you already have? Are you asking for data that you won’t use in any meaningful way? Sit down with your technicians to understand what they do in the field, and design your mobile app to support the way they actually work.

Where possible, create workflows that guide the technician through the repair/inspection and prompt the technician for the specific data you need—ideally with dropdowns, radio buttons or voice commands that minimize the need to type. I've found this approach not only improves data quality, but also improves user adoption. Technicians will embrace the use of a mobile app it makes their jobs easier—and will resist if it just adds more work to their already full plate.

Prepare for the potential challenges of mobile adoption.

The use of mobile devices is generally welcomed by technicians—85% of the U.S. population owns a smartphone. Since veteran workers typically have the greatest technical expertise, getting them onboard with mobile is critical. Teaming a younger, “born-digital” employee with a veteran employee is a good way for the younger employee to gain technical expertise while allowing the veteran gain comfort with the mobile device.

Another challenge sometimes encountered is a fear of being tracked by the mobile device. While some level of tracking is often desired by the organization, e.g., being able to map the location of technicians to minimize travel between jobs, it may be perceived as surveillance. In my experience, it’s best to have a written mobile device use policy that clarifies what is and isn’t being tracked and what’s expected of your workforce, including individual responsibilities and restrictions on use.

Covid-19 forced organizations to rethink how they do business. Managing a large facility with hundreds of technicians is a difficult job, even in the best of times. In response, many organizations scrambled to adopt mobile asset management tools that would allow them to implement safety measures. As restrictions have eased, organizations have come to realize that these mobile tools have also resulted in labor efficiencies and equipment up-time gains—and made their facilities teams more responsive to their organizations.

And the consumer food company could soar more due to a focus on higher-margin U.S. business and a growing dividend. But another likely reason is Big Money lifting the stock.

General Mills Draws Big Money

So, what’s Big Money? Said simply, that’s when a stock goes up in price alongside chunky volumes. It’s indicative of institutions betting on the shares.

Smart money managers are always looking for the next hot stock. And General Mills has many fundamental qualities that are attractive.

This sets up well for the stock going forward. But how the shares have been trading points to more upside. As I’ll show you, the Big Money has been consistent in the shares.

You see, fund managers are always looking to bet on the next outlier stocks…the best in class. They spend countless hours sizing up companies, studying reports, speaking to analysts…you name it. When they find a company firing on all cylinders, they pounce in a big way.

That’s why I’ve learned how critical it is to gauge Big Money demand for shares. To show you what I mean, have a look at all the Big Money signals GIS has made the last year.

The last few weeks have seen Big Money activity too. Each green bar signals big trading volumes as the stock ramped in price:

In the last year, the stock attracted 17 Big Money buy signals. Generally speaking, latest green bars could mean more upside is ahead.

Now, let’s check out the technical action grabbing my attention:

Outperformance is important for leading stocks.

General Mills Fundamental Analysis

Next, it’s a good idea to check under the hood. Meaning, I want to make sure the fundamental story is strong too. As you can see, General Mills has been growing earnings well and sports a healthy profit margin. Take a look:

  • 3-year EPS growth rate (+15.3%)
  • Profit margin (+14.3%)

Source: FactSet

Marrying great fundamentals with technically superior stocks is a winning recipe over the long-term.

In fact, GIS has been a top-rated stock at my research firm, MAPsignals, for years. That means the stock has buy pressure, strong technicals, and growing fundamentals. We have a ranking process that showcases stocks like this on a weekly basis.

GIS has a lot of qualities that are attracting Big Money. It’s made the Top 20 report 34 times since 1990, with its first appearance on 06/04/1990…and gaining 2,189.7% since. The blue bars below show when General Mills was a top pick:

It’s been a top stock in the consumer staples sector according to the MAPsignals process. I wouldn’t be surprised if GIS makes additional appearances in the years to come. Let’s tie this all together.

General Mills Price Prediction

The General Mills rally could have further to go. Big Money buying in the shares is signaling to take notice. Shares could be positioned for further upside, plus it pays a nearly 2.9% current dividend. Given the historical gains in share price and strong fundamentals, this stock could be worth a spot in a diversified portfolio.
