Love in the workplace: it’s not just about romance

Love isn’t always romantic, especially in the office. There are five love languages that help shape the connections we share with other people, both romantically and platonically.  There are various types of love that you’ll find in the modern office setting. The work world’s cupid is still fluttering around and without a doubt has many colorful arrows in his arsenal, but each one is embedded with a certain emotion that transcends standard relationship labels.  While HR should always remain aware and monitor the interactions between their people, they can help…

Better onboarding ahead

Using technology, HR can make a great impact on onboarding people

Before inking a new job offer, one-in-five candidates surf the internet to gauge a company’s public perception, and if the culture doesn’t look promising, they decline. That’s why internet sites like Glassdoor are so pertinent to positive employer branding and how companies are being portrayed online - they either deter or attract talent.  Glassdoor can be a place…

HR needs a makeover: Tips for rebranding the role

Rebranding isn’t just for marketing anymore. As the nature of work itself constantly innovates and changes, it’s time for the HR role to catch up. HR is often described as antiquated, outdated, or out of touch. In fact, “I hate HR” is a frequent search term on Google and Reddit.  According to an international survey, only 17% of executives view HR departments as able to measurably prove their value to the business. Anonymous surveys and feedback check-ins are a great way to gain an understanding of how people view your…
