what is employee engagement

“What is employee engagement?“

I’d been explaining the ins-and-outs of my job to my family for a while but here I had to stop to give more detail. That’s when it hit me.

How to Choose the Best HRIS (Human Resources Information System)

hrisEmployees are the vital force driving any organization, and as such, making sure that employee information is properly stored and managed is of utmost importance.

Despite the importance of employee data, many HR departments are still filing away paper forms and documents. This is not only inefficient and cumbersome, it’s also not the most secure option available.

Organizations must turn to software solutions for managing the efficiency of their internal HR procedures, while making sure to maintain the integrity of dealing with sensitive employee data.

Refine Business Operations & Boost Efficiency with Continuous Improvement

continuous improvementNo process is perfect; there’s always room to improve. Unfortunately, many teams have no way to identify, test, and deploy the changes they make, meaning each tweak is a roll of the dice.

However, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start from the top.
