Willy Wonka and HR Operational Excellence

By Richard Doherty

wow

I’m sure many of you are familiar with the Children’s classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

Should Human Capital Management Activity Move Away from Shared Service Centers?

By Laura Schaulat - Originally posted on Profit

wow

Over the last 15 years, many organizations have standardized processes and consolidated costs through the shared service model. This transition was enabled in part by a common global technology platform, surfaced in local languages. That platform also laid the foundation for the next development cycle of human resources (HR) process maturity: a slight swing of the pendulum back toward localization, as HR leaders realize that one size does not fit all for HR shared services.

HR Should Hire "Scary" Data People

By Bertrand Dussert - Originally posted on Forbes

wow

Too many people confuse reporting with analytics–and underinvest in making sure they are asking the right questions.

Standard-issue reports about monthly employee turnover rates and average compensation per employee are important glances in the rearview mirror. But today’s savviest chief human resources officers (CHROs) do not spend time obsessing over such reports.

What is a Human Resources Tweet-Up?

By Ingrid Stabb

wow

Human Resources professionals are becoming increasingly active over social channels and sharing best practices in meetings both in person and meeting virtually. The concept of the “Tweet-up” has been around for over 5 years. I remember attending early ones put on by social media marketers and Gen-Y event organizers at big conferences.

The Power of Flat: How Organizations without Managers Succeed in the Real World

By Minda Zetlin - Originally posted on Profit

wow

It’s the kind of small inefficiency found in every business. One group of supply chain employees collects, breaks down, and disposes of wooden palettes—while another purchases palettes. But to simplify processes and cut costs, management from a large cosmetics company invited all employees to join a leaderless work group. Reusing the palettes was 1 of 500 changes the group identified—and it saved the company US$150 million per year.
