Save Your Employees: Unload on Information Overload
Between mobile devices and work computers, employees are rarely out of reach. A study by venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers found that the average person checks their phone 150 times a day. That’s right, 150 times a day! This convenient proximity to technology can often make employees feel like they’re never getting anything accomplished, let along escape from work during their time off.
3 Ways Businesses Shape HR
The role of HR professionals is almost unrecognizable compared to that of yesteryear. Once a transactional operation, HR now has become a business of highly skilled consultants. The rapid evolution of cloud technology gives HR more time to be strategic advisers versus their historical HR (e.g. hiring, benefits enrollment and payroll). Now faced with new […]
3 ACA Reporting Alternatives Unraveled
For many organizations, the employer mandate and the reporting requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) loom. Employers want to ensure they will be in compliance come January 2016, when the required forms are due to their full-time employees and the Internal Revenue Service. Yet many organizations remain confused by the law’s many complexities, especially […]
Get Your Gears Going, It’s Time to Stand Out
Have you ever not gotten a promotion and wondered what you could have done differently or what the person who received the promotion had that you didn’t?

A Bell of a Year for Paycom
2014 was monumental for Paycom and I want to take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed since our initial public offering on the NYSE. In those 52 weeks, we’ve developed and released nine new major products or enhancements, added many new clients and witnessed the value of our stock more than double. The reason for our success is due to our unique value proposition: Paycom’s innovative technology, motivated people and astounding growth.
3 Untold Secrets to Employee Engagement
For many years, employers’ main focus was largely customer satisfaction; however, the day has arrived where employee satisfaction is now equally important. By increasing visibility and transparency, social media has turned company cultures inside-out. Corporate decisions, once kept in the dark, are being disclosed and heretofore—unknown issues, like disengagement, have found the light.
Illinois Acts to Halt Wage Theft
What if we lived in a world in which organizations were held accountable for wages owed to their employees? Look no further than Cook County, Ill., whose board of commissioners recently approved a wage theft ordinance. The new ordinance was passed on behalf of low-income employees who increasingly have been plagued by businesses taking advantage of their hard work and abusing labor requirements.
Building Leaders Today for a Better Tomorrow
I am hard-pressed to make sense of the hesitation organizations have for building stronger leadership pipelines. In a recent Bersin by Deloitte study, organizations cited leadership as one of the most important challenges, yet only 6 percent are confident their organization is “ready” to make a change. Here is where I struggle: If we say leadership development is important, then why aren’t more companies taking initiative? The real answer is that many companies confine leadership to the “exclusive” few, failing to make long-term investments and neglecting to construct a larger leadership pipeline at all levels.
Collecting Time Data: Who Has the Time?
Businesses find that labor is one of the expenses taking a big bite out of their budgets every year. They strive to find a balance between labor and workload for optimal performance and cost effectiveness, but leave themselves vulnerable to serious risk without the proper tools and processes in place. Although a large cost, labor can be controlled with a few best practices.
Redefine Employee Engagement Today for a Prosperous Tomorrow
Whether it’s improving employee engagement, increasing growth opportunities, achieving greater efficiencies or expanding skill sets, organizations across the country have similar goals. That means they also face many of the same challenges. With the correct learning management system (LMS), organizations can better meet these demands, while also creating a more nimble and productive workforce.
4 Key Challenges for Charter Schools to Ace Now
A cultural shift is happening in the education industry that challenges existing practices - how labor is allocated, how hiring is managed, how talent is evaluated and how teachers are empowered. This “new” approach is a plea to fix existing problems, so instead of constantly jumping through hoops, charter school leaders can focus on reaching academic excellence.
