What Role Does HR Play in Improving Innovation?

No organization, regardless of size, industry or nonprofit/private/publicly traded status, seeks to avoid innovation. What innovation means to each company might differ but being able to grow and adapt to a changing world or merely staying a few steps ahead of those changes is desirable for any organization.

How To Develop TA Professionals More Effectively

There is no discipline in HR under the microscope more than Talent Acquisition right now. With the
COVID-19 pandemic, the “great resignation,” an uncertain return-to-work and other factors to contend

How to Help Leaders Make Critical Transitions

Any leader moving into a new role — whether a rookie or a veteran — has a tremendous responsibility and often a steep learning curve. Even if onboarding extends for a few weeks, the learning will need to be reinforced. Onboarding — whether you call it that or label it as continuous learning — should continue as long as necessary for leaders to get the support they need.

How to Improve Your Hiring Process to Create a Better Candidate Experience

Even the most top-performing organizations still have areas of the hiring process they feel can be improved upon. Chief among them is speeding up the process altogether, but just as important is engaging with candidates passively through the written job descriptions and actively through directly communicating throughout the process.

How do We Measure and Make Changes to Our Organizational Culture?

In the current global workplace, many organizations struggle with a large remote workforce that isn’t receiving the benefit of their long-standing culture — or are they? Cultural assimilation previously occurred when certain behaviors that were tied to the culture and values were exhibited and repeated in the office or among peers. But now that there are so many WFH and other types of non-office workers, those old standards may need to be re-evaluated.
