When employers think about employee engagement, they often think about management practices, employee recognition, learning and development, culture, communication, and the alignment of employee and employer values. shutterstock_384536248

These are all important, but in our increasingly global economy in which many key contributors work remotely, technology solutions play a more significant role than ever in engaging talent and increasing organizational performance. Think about it: for remote employees, interacting with technology is the predominant way that they connect with the organization.

HCM technology is everywhere and it reflects the organization’s values, culture, and brand and, if the right solutions are selected, it can foster engagement, collaboration, and connection.

That is why I am delighted to invite you to our webinar, sponsored by Vibe HCM by cfactor Works: The Evolution of Human Capital Technology: Empowerment for the Restaurant and Food Services Industry, on Thursday, June 9th at 1 PM EDT.  This webinar will include Brandon Hall Group research findings that illustrate how technology impacts employee engagement and organizational performance.

Even more exciting than our research (and I don’t usually say that!), Kevin Sheridan, an internationally recognized keynote speaker and a New York Times best-selling author, will be speaking about his first book, Building a Magnetic Culture, which made six of the best seller lists. By attending the webinar you will receive a complimentary copy of this book.

The webinar will highlight how the Restaurant and Food Services industry can benefit from HCM technology as a system of engagement. This industry experiences high growth in jobs, high turnover, and many young workers who are just starting their first jobs. These conditions together create both challenges and opportunities for restaurants.

I hope you attend the webinar and learn about the reality of what some organizations are experiencing with respect to their HCM technology and how your organization’s choice of HCM technology can empower your organization.
