Taking care of your people is big business and finally getting the interest it deserves. I believe it’s because the Millennial work-force is now bigger than the Boomers - and these kids get what they want … meaning a job they care about and good managers that show their appreciation.
A recent HBR cover story, “It’s time to blow up HR” looks at the historical trends and how the first step is to give your newly appointed CHRO, Chief Human Resources Officer, direct alignment with your CEO. You must accept that HR is not just Transactional (hiring) but Transformational (the answer to success and innovation).
HBR also advises us to “fall in love with the problem, not the solution” … hubEngage is one of my best partners. They are doing both.
They have built a cloud/SAAS tech platform with THE missing element that will finally make your good intentions come true… yeah, you guessed it… the Smartphone!
hubEngage provides employee engagement Apps - see: www.hubEngage.com
The key is a loaded content management system that takes advantage of all the smartphone powers and, of course, proximity! See a list in a previous article HERE.
These are just a few of the HR game-changing functions:
- Instantly design, build and trigger tactics with pre-set templates
- Insure quick compliance with top-of-phone activities (not lost in emails)
- Analyze performance and re-target employees with increasing relevancy
- Target groups and individuals with specific content and interactive messaging
- Points and gamified empowerment!
Of course you will have a dashboard for a live look at the activities, mood and morale of your people...
The goal is to provide both control and openness for authentic culture. Really... control AND culture.
