By Jim Lein

wow

Rush hour traffic. Tuesday morning. The Mission District of San Francisco. I’m riding shotgun in a Lincoln Town car, on my way to meet Ron Storn, VP of People for Lyft, for breakfast. Ron would be presenting in our customer experiences session at Oracle OpenWorld ’14 later that week.

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.

By Jeff Erickson

wow

When you’re an enterprise technology company substantially living off of licensed software running onsite at your customers’ data centers, how do you dare call yourself a “cloud company”? That thought might have been going through some minds as Silicon Valley types recently filed into a downtown hotel in San Jose, California, to hear Oracle executives share the latest about the company’s enterprise cloud offerings.

Google Shakes up Search Again. Don’t Worry HR, You’ve Still Got Time.

By Sunita Khatri

wow

On April 21st, Google announced a seismic change within its mobile search algorithm which will change the order in how websites (individual pages) are ranked via mobile search. Websites that aren’t mobile friendly will rank lower and be sifted to the bottom of the barrel despite whether they ranked high for desktop or mobile search in the old days.

Frozen Compensation Data? Let it Go!

By Chad Atwell

wow

“There is nothing permanent except change.”

- Heraclitus

Imagine a HR system where you can’t change or update any of the employee data. It sounds downright absurd, but compensation professionals know exactly what I’m referring to when I ask them, “Do you freeze your data?”

Employee Engagement, The Role of David Brent

By Andy Campbell

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.

How Can Project-Driven Organizations Get the Most Out of Their Talent?

By Romain Maillart

wow

When your tempo is set by the inflow of projects, it’s all about how your people perform. Project-driven organizations operate very differently from traditional organizations. Traditional businesses rely on a continuous stream of activity—think retail or utilities companies, whose leaders typically define global annual objectives that cascade down through the organization to align focus and drive company performance.

Investigating Talent Analytics

By Jeff Haynes

wowThe US unemployment rate is at its lowest since 2001’s 5.5 percent. There are 11 million people looking for work, per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. But, 5 million jobs remain unfilled because it is highly unlikely that those two unemployed external candidates for every available job will have the critical skills your company requires.

It stands for Platform-as-a-Service, and allows customers to develop, run and manage web applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure typically associated with developing and launching an app. Sounds very “techy”.

Redefining Social: Get Your Head Out of Your Apps!

By Christine Mellon

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. We have come to define “social” exclusively as the world of online apps and platforms.
