On June 26, @shrmnextchat chatted with Adam Rogers (@AdamR), co-chief executive officer and chief technology officer of Ultimate Software about how to use technology to create an amazing employee experience at your workplace. If you missed this excellent chat, you can read HERE or below:
If I were to do a word cloud of all conversations taking place at the SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition, perhaps the no.1 word in that cloud would be:
By now, most employers are sick of hearing about employee engagement.
I have a confession to make: I’m a SHRM Talent newbie! That’s right! In my almost 11 (or is it 12?) years of recruiting, I have yet to attend this recruiting-focused event where I can grow my talent knowledge and network with some of the best of the best! Thankfully, it’s just right down the road from me this year in good ole Nashville, TN and I’m headed south!
We've reviewed the trajectory of Workforce planning for ages: Employee Recognition gave way to Employee Engagement which is now being called Employee Experience. These phrases more-closely resemble buzz words but there is a distinction to be made in the verbiage.
Culture is what motivates and retains talented employees. Every decision your organization makes strengthens or weakens your culture, and a healthy workplace culture—one that is fair, inclusive, high-functioning and free from harassment—is a critical business asset and force multiplier.
We’ve probably all heard the comment that technology is just a tool, meaning it’s a device used to carry out a particular function. Totally makes sense. We use technology to communicate, make purchases, learn new things, etc. So, technology is a tool.
This weekend, I witnessed my world through the eyes of an almost four year old girl. These lessons know no age limits and can work within your HR Teams. Please read on…
Who knew a park around the corner, a swimming pool, sidewalk chalk, markers and coloring books could create such joy, giggles and stories?
We head into #SHRM18 ready to be introduced to a variety of new ways in which to engage our employees. Having been in the human capital management business for a decade, I can confirm that the Golden Ticket to engagement remains ever-elusive. While technology, total rewards packages and methods for content delivery evolve, there is no single source solution to address every engagement point.
Gone are the days of delighting customers at the expense of employees. Organizations today understand the value of employee happiness and are increasingly looking for ways to attract and retain top talent. This includes delighting employees at every touch point along the way from orientation and beyond.
I've been in the Human Capital Management industry for 10 years. We started with logoed lamps for milestone achievements. The concept of Employee Recognition made the process of rewarding behavior change more immediate and systematic. Employee Engagement introduced employee learning, performance management, live events and leadership development into a broadened view of employee development.
Do you get the “Sunday night blues,” or do you work for an organization that offers such a great experience that you can’t wait to show up to work each day?
There’s been a lot of focus lately on candidate experience, but more and more organizations are beginning to look at ways to improve the experience of their greatest asset – their people. Tying back into employee satisfaction, motivation and retention; organizations are developing strategies to improve their employee experience.
