4 Employee Engagement Drivers: Workplace Social Technology

We've heard the term "employee engagement" a gazillion times, and one could even say it's now just a buzzword. If you ask me, it is the most critical aspect of any successful organization....without a doubt! A positive correlation exists between employee engagement scores and business results (via Right Management - "Employee Engagement, Maximizing Organizational Performance").

Workplace Presenteeism Redefined

The majority of organizations today have employee support programs to help with workplace absenteeism. Examples include sick days, short term disability, long term disability, return-to-work, workplace accommodation, vacation, emergency family care, and the list goes on. The goals of these programs are to reduce costs to employers, improve employee productivity and ultimately top and bottom line financial results.

Opening Doors: How I Overcame My Disability in Work & Life

HOW Do You Build Your Personal Brand Online?

A couple of days ago I had the fortunate opportunity to volunteer as a "mentor" at an evening seminar about "Discovering Your Personal Brand" with Bobby Umar of Raeallan. I really enjoyed the experience and engaging with the panel, which consisted of Cher Jones, Katia Millar, Ron Tite, Andy Strote, Mira Sirotic and of course Bobby Umar.

What Does Online Behavior Have to Do With Perception of Personal Brand?

I have written, commented, debated and argued numerous times on the idea that perception is reality, and vice versa, in reference to brand. Perception is closely tied to experience, and perception typically develops and changes over time based on the collective experiences (a.k.a. touch points) with a respective brand.

Leveraging Video in Your Employer Brand Strategy

As smartphone image quality continues rising with each new release of the latest smartphone so does the impact and effects of video.

Reinforcing a Culture of Employee Engagement through Dynamic Office Space Design

"The workplace" as we know it is changing rapidly, and is constantly changing-this is nothing new. Gone are the days where all employees commute to a common workplace and work under one roof. Employees are now situated in all four corners of the globe working in different time zones.

Klout Does Matter... Not For the Reasons You Might Think!

Numbers impact every single aspect of our lives, and it started the moment we were born. Our weight, height and percentile on the growth chart were numbers that we all were assigned just seconds after we took our first breath.

WHY HR Does Not Think & Act Like Marketing

I recently published a blog post titled, " Inbound Marketing and HR/Recruiting... Huh? " where I argued that HR can learn so much from Marketing. Marketer's market company products and services, and HR supposedly market the organization (a.k.a. "the product") as a great place to work.

And with a blink of an eye #SHRM13 is a wrap! Get in and get out-that's what it felt like, the exact same as my first SHRM National in Atlanta last year. #SHRM13 in the great city of Chicago (FYI, not talking about the Blackhawks even though they won the Stanley Cup...

The 16th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition, or just "HR Tech" is just around the corner, taking place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. This will be my first HR Tech conference, and will be participating a member of the conference social media and blog team.

The Biggest Reason Why Attending HR Tech Conference is So Important

Within the HR and Recruiting space we are absolutely inundated with events - conferences, unconferences, workshops, seminars, webinars, virtual events and so on. Each event offers some kind of value that we in the community can realize by attending, some more so than others.

Cream.HR Goes to Vegas! (In the Name of HR, We Promise)

The 16th Annual HR Technology Conference that took place in the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas, came and went at the speed of light.

It's Demo Time at #HRTechConf

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of attending my first HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas. As I said on several occasions I felt like a little kid in a candy store being there among all of the uber-awesome technology.
