Podcast: Creating HR Analytics That Matter

Kronos analyticsYesterday I chatted with our board members David Creelman and William Tincup about what organizations need to do to create HR analytics that matter to the business.  Big Data is one of the linchpins of the big 4 SMAC themes in technology today: Social-Mobile-Analytics-Cloud.  Deployed alone and in various combinations, these technologies continue to transform the way work gets done. For many people,  harnessing the power of big data remains a new frontier.  In this podcast, David and William share their thoughts on some of the following questions:

  • If you’re new to analytics, how do you get started?
  • What skills do you need to implement analytics projects?
  • How do you present the results of your data analysis to senior management?

Is Employee Engagement Ever a Bad Thing? (Market Basket Saga Continued)

Fox appearance 8.14.14I was interviewed on the local Fox affiliate last week to talk about the ongoing Market Basket standoff between employees and management.   Part time employees have lost their hours and many salaried employees are about to lose their jobs.  The news anchor who interviewed me asked if this situation is an example of employee loyalty going too far.  You can watch the interview and hear my response here.

What do you think? Is there such a thing as employee engagement and loyalty going too far?

Take the poll below and let us know what you think.

Is there such a thing as too much employee loyalty?

Intern Kronolympics

As the week winds down, you may enjoy checking out this video of our fun and fond farewell to our 2014 summer interns.  I know they learned a lot while they were here, but we also learned a lot from them.  The Kronolympics is a series of silly contests that they complete as teams, with time and quality being important.  Kind of like the world of work, hunh?  We refer to our culture as Work Inspired.  I hope we inspired these terrific people as much as they inspired us.
