Do People Really Care About HR? By Ankita Poddar

It is a non-standard question, isn’t it? Most similar sentences have a subject other than HR inserted at the end– usually water, coal or another precious resource; a resource that has proven to be invaluable and close to extinction. After all, what has HR done for the world to care about it? It is just another profession and a non P&L one at that.

Rethinking what employee experience means for HR by Jeff Wellstead

Over the weekend I was enticed to buy Patty McCord’s new book called Powerful, Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility and was immediately hooked.

What are you on? It's definitely NOT the end of the road for employee performance reviews by Max Blumberg

It simply doesn't feel right to miss out on the current trend of writing about the death of employee performance reviews - if nothing else, they seem to make for such catchy headlines.

In my previous series of articles, I addressed the urgency and desire for organisations to address enhancing Employee Experience in a bid to rapidly adapt their ability to attract, on-board, train & develop, enable and empower employees to be as collaborative, innovative and productive as possible – in a bid to stay ahead of their competition in the Industry 4.0 era. 

Employee vs The Organisation: What problem are we solving for? by Jeff Wellstead

Part 2/5 - What is the Problem Statement?  According to several credible employee engagement studies, one in particular sponsored by Officevibe, being a global, ongoing measurement of the current state of employee engagement in 157 countries, across 1,000 organisations over 1.2 million data points, as well as global attrition data mixed with a relatively sudden shift in highly specialised skill and competency requirements emerging from new technologies…The data are overwhelmingly pointi
