What is SaaS? Isn't that just another term for "the Cloud"? Not really. Here's what SaaS - Software as a Service - really is.
In our continuing series on human resources and technology, I thought it would be good to cover a term that gets thrown around a lot – SaaS. It’s an acronym for Software-as-a-Service. Many times, when I hear the term SaaS, it’s used in the same sentence as “the cloud.” So much so that it’s easy …

Gauging your performance is critical in a competitive market. But how to do find the right companies to benchmark?
It seems like a simple enough question. “What companies should we benchmark ourselves against?” The question was asked in a Facebook group I belong to. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s an easy answer. Benchmarking is the process of comparing something (i.e. process, performance) against what someone else does. The process of choosing that “someone else” …

Managers tend to think that, to be fair, they need to treat all employees equally. That can be a big mistake.
One of the biggest challenges I see managers deal with is employee relations, which has to do with the relationship between the employee and the company. Employee relations topics include conduct, performance, discipline, recognition, engagement, etc. When employee relations issues are handled poorly, managers can get labeled as “playing favorites.” Whether it’s recognition or discipline, …

There are only 3 good reasons to hold a business meeting. Keeping these in mind may make for a better workplace.
Business meetings are the bane of our professional lives. According to The Muse, managers spent between 35 – 50% of their time in meetings. That’s a pretty significant number. You might be saying, the answer to this is get rid of meetings. But here’s the thing. I doubt that meetings are going away. The definition …

In decision making - first, understand what you want to be known for.
I found this website recently. It’s a memorial to all of the products and projects that Google has abandoned over the years. While the site is in French, you immediately understand the point without even looking for the translate button. I think this Google Memorial site has become popular given the recent speculation about the …

Technological unemployment is a real thing. What are you doing to keep up with the speed of technology?
There’s lots of talk about skills gaps in the workforce. Today I want to talk about one specific skills gap – digital. I ran across this very good article on the Undercover Recruiter blog discussing some of the strategies we need to employ to bridge the digital skills gap. It’s worth a read. Technology is …

Can you successfully facilitate a meeting without knowing the subject matter?
I was reading an article about internships when I ran across the phrase “facilitating while learning”. It made me think, can you facilitate a topic that you aren’t knowledgeable on? One of a facilitator’s primary responsibilities is questioning. I can see where it would be very helpful to have some working knowledge of a topic …
