ClearCompany HRM

Company Culture Productivity Corporate Culture There seem to be a lot of ancient corporate ideas hanging around the workplace. Some leaders are clinging on to tradition for dear life, while others are tossing it all out and determining a new plan. Instead of doing something because that’s the way it’s always been done, what about innovating, evolving, striking a balance and getting comfortable… I’ll explain that part later.

HR Bartender

Creating an engaging and productive workplace is everyone’s job. During the HR Technology Conference , I was chatting with someone about job titles. She had heard the most interesting title – Vice President of Employee Success. It didn’t sit well with me then and the more I think about it…it still doesn’t.

The Capabilities of HR Technology – Ask #HR Bartender

HR Bartender

To help us sift through what HR technology exists, I asked Amber Hyatt, SPHR, director of product marketing at SilkRoad to share her expertise. Technology plays a huge role in our personal and professional lives. That being said, because there is so much technology on the market, it can be a challenge to figure out what’s available. Reminds me of the idiom “ It’s Greek to me ”. That’s the challenge in today’s reader question.

Changing Performance Appraisal Ratings – Ask #HR Bartender

HR Bartender

That thinking turns the performance appraisal into a tug-of-war, which isn’t productive. The performance appraisal continues to be a topic of conversation. Today’s reader question brings up an interesting point about the process. Hi Sharlyn. I love your blog and learn a lot from it.

HR Bartender

In a business sense, sales is defined as the exchange of a product or service for money. Marketing is defined as promoting a product or service. A few weeks ago, I published a post on the “ 10 Skills You Need to Innovate ”. I received a comment from Hannah Morgan (aka Career Sherpa ) suggesting the addition of sales and marketing skills. I totally agree that sales and marketing skills are important.

Resources for Feedback, Productive Meetings, Leadership and Career

The People Equation

Last month’s article for HR Answers was a bit of a smorgasbord. I covered meetings, giving feedback to a colleague and reviewed a total of nine books on popular HR and Leadership themes such as employee engagement, organizational culture, and establishing a thriving career. People love to hate meetings. I tend to swim upstream on this one – I think meetings do have a place in organizational life IF they are run well.

Q&A with Laura Carstensen: Why You Can't Afford to Ignore Senior Talent

Cornerstone On Demand

Here Carstensen explains how balanced, multigenerational teams can be more resilient and productive than lopsided ones. In fact, they’re very concerned about older workers and their productivity and worry that productivity will be decreased because of older workers. One of the misconceptions is that older workers are less productive than younger workers, when there’s really very, very little evidence for that.

Building a Productive Learning Culture: Fostering Shared Ownership of the Learning Environment

ATD Human Capital

Workplace Diversity: ‘The Era of Colorblindness is Over’

Cornerstone On Demand

Any time we have those barriers to communication or to establishing authentic relationships, it’s a potential barrier to our performance and our ability to work together productively. Workplace diversity is a pressing topic among HR pros. It's heavily scrutinized in blogs, at conferences and during training sessions.

Shift the Paradigm: Carol Anderson's Wish for HR in 2015

Cornerstone On Demand

Time for HR’s 2014 Performance Appraisal

HR Daily Advisor

It’s a good time to reflect on your accomplishments of 2014. How close are you now to where you thought you’d be on January 1, 2014?

The Secret to Value-Based Learning in Healthcare

For the past five years, the siren call of value-based care has put pressure on healthcare organizations to prepare to deliver the same, if not better, quality care with lower costs.

Mindful Management: What Opportunities Are You Missing?

Cornerstone On Demand

This gathers information about the tardiness and creates an opportunity for a supportive and productive response. A mindful manager listens intently to a customer who complains about a product or a service. Most of us are pretty mindless. We forget the names of people we just met.
