Building employee and manager empowerment: one-one-one meeting templates

At the heart of any successful business is a clear and strong understanding of the importance of communication.

HR platform vs. point solutions

The great debate: HR platform vs. HR point solutions

The last few years have seen a shift in how companies manage their people.

But lately, this function has evolved into so much more.

In line with their new function,…

Strategies for HR leaders: Acing pandemic waves and peaks

The COVID pandemic put a spin on every aspect of our existence. As caretakers of all things employment-related, HR professionals now have to navigate not only the spin created in their own lives but also the pandemic experiences of their organizations. “I didn’t need COVID to appreciate the importance of the HR professional,” Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer Inc., told the Society for Human Resource Management. “HR is one of the most critical functions in a corporation, and I’ve always believed that.” While Bourla may have valued HR and seen…

It handles the paperwork involved in hiring and firing, manages the bureaucratic aspects of benefits, and administers compensation decisions made by others ...
