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.

While You’re On Holiday, Would You Like to Have Your Work Emails Automatically Deleted?

By Richard Doherty

wowDaimler’s recent decision to give employees the option to have all email received while on holiday automatically deleted (see story here) has generated lots of healthy discussion and debate with many for and against such a policy. Personally, I think the key take away from this initiative is the fact that it is an option.

By Richard Doherty

wow

If the following recent article is anything to go by - Startup Ups the Ante for Employee Referrals – an incredible $20K referral bonus for employees - employee referral programs are certainly increasing in popularity! Given that referred employees typically perform better and are 15% less likely to quit than other types of new hires and referral programs can open up difficult to access talent pools, this makes perfect business sense.

Why We Should Learn to Stop Worrying and Love Millennials

By Christine Mellon

wow

Much is said and written about the new generations of employees entering our workforce, as though they are a strange specimen, a mysterious life form to be “figured out,” accommodated and engaged – at a safe distance, of course.  At its worst, this talk takes a critical and disapproving tone, with baby boomer employees adamantly refusing to validate this new breed of worker, let alone determine how to help them succeed and achieve their potential.

By Richard Doherty

wow

As employees, we’re all on a journey with our employer. Our experiences on this journey will strongly influence our attitudes; our attitudes in turn form our behaviours which ultimately drive outcomes. A poor Employee Experience (EX) naturally results in a poor outcome.
