Connecting With Employee Wellness

By Rick O'Herron

Populations around the world are getting older as fertility rates decline and people live longer lives. According to the Harvard Initiative for Global Health, “between 2005 and 2050, the share of the population aged 60 and over is projected to increase in nearly every country in the world.

Take This Template And Shove It: How We See Managing Millennials

By Mark Hurd

wow

I’m a big believer that he who hath the best people usually wins. Nothing original there—except if that were the case, by definition, only one company would ever have the best people.

Trends in the Workplace: Gamification in the Enterprise

By Susan Poser

wow

Gaming techniques encourage employees to adopt habits that benefit the company while creating a fun atmosphere. I used to think that gaming was something for millennials, 18- to 27-year-olds who grew up gaming on their computers, earning badges, and competing with others to progress to a more challenging level. However, I find that I’m getting caught up in these activities before I realize what’s happening.

Corporate Survival Requires Real-Time HR Practices

By Bertrand Dussert

wow

The Fortune 500 is an impressive list—at any point in time it includes some of the largest and most profitable companies in the world. Unfortunately, not all of them are the most adaptable and agile. In fact, if you could magically transport yourself into the future, you’d likely find that nearly half of the organizations now on the list would be gone within 10 years.

Redefining Social: Get Your Head Out of Your Apps!

wow

Although shamelessly pilfered from a current Denver road sign on distracted driving, this is a perfect directive to start a timely conversation around “social” and HR. Like much of the world, the HR discipline has succumbed to the siren call of internet-bred social tools and sites.
