“People First” in Action

Ultimate Software

By now, we understand that employee engagement gives way to the employee experience. Meaning, it’s time to focus on automatically creating an outstanding employee experience so engagement just happens. But, in order for that to happen, the employee experience cannot mimic the traditional employee lifecycle. It needs to focus on people.

Employees: You Need to Read This

HR Bartender

Some of the best things about technology are the traditions they’re challenging. We’re beginning to change the way we do business because technology solutions allow us to do things differently.

About 6 years ago I wrote a post for Fistful Of Talent entitled: HR Plays Too Much Defense”. The gist of the post was that HR sees their job as “protecting the company.” That HR is in the “prevention of problems game.” ” Unfortunately, the way you win that game is to not lose.
