Does Your Employee Experience Match Your Employer Brand?

employee experience
November 1, 2017 Is HR Broken? What do you think? I've heard and read it often that HR is, indeed, broken. Human Resources and Talent Management are supposed to assist employees (ranging from high-ranking executives to the newest and most subordinate player) in their experience at work, making it better.  HR should, most definitely, listen to and be responsive to every employee on payroll. Human Resource Professionals have fought for years to get a seat at the table. But, what exactly does that mean? We should be tired of the excuses given for why bad employment experiences exist. If employees are taken care of, basic needs met, if they are heard, if managers are doing their jobs? Perhaps lawsuits and attrition would drop and those tremendous employer branding efforts would be a little less necessary. Do Employees have a Voice? It may be…

The Employee Path: Talent Attraction & Talent Management

employee path
March 29, 2017 The Ongoing Conversations I've been having more and more conversations about employee growth and development. This extends beyond the tired and overused phrase Employee Engagement. I think it's fascinating that so many write, and talk, and present of the importance of retention but little is really done to ensure that their company shines when it comes to these efforts. Talent Attraction vs. Talent Management Is there really a difference between talent attraction and talent management? Shouldn't there be a concerted and continued effort to attract the talent you have already acquired? I am often dumbfounded by the crazy amount of effort that goes into talent attraction, recruitment marketing, employer branding, and hiring when compared to the lack of efforts put into retention, employee development, and succession planning. Is there no real understanding of what it takes to replace a good,…

Empower Employees with One Simple Tool

employee portal
February 2, 2017 The Employee Portal Dovetail Software was very excited to launch our updated employee portal last September. As we continue to help organizations with employee communications and interactions, we understand the need to listen to what is important to employees because this assists our clients, the employers. Empower Employees Does it make sense to empower the workforce with "self" access to information? We think it does. Making  knowledge readily and easily available, they are able to get answers quickly and easily. I have always felt that an informed and smart workforce is a productive and loyal workforce. The information shared with employees becomes another notch toward employee engagement, which we know leads to less attrition and retention of talent - obviously quality talent because they have chosen to become or stay informed about their own employment and ask questions they need…

Ethics is a big deal to me. You just can't lie to a customer. I see it over and over.

The Community Garden of SaaS

SaaS
July 14, 2016 The Perfect Analogy From time to time, we come up with analogies on the fly that make so much sense, we have to share them. This is a great example. Not long ago, I was trying to explain how SaaS works in relation to developing software and product management.  While we've talked about our process in the past, it has been on the "how," not the "why." To explain that part, we found a perfect analogy in the Community Garden. The Plot Let's start with the land. To get our garden going, we need a place to put it.  So we imagine a city block that has been razed and plowed. This is our garden, and we have opened up access to our clients, who wish to grow their own beets. We let the spinach people in too, of course.…

What Is HR Case Management?

February 25, 2016 Do you know what HR Case Management is? In the customer service sense, case management speaks to tracking interactions with customers, making sure their purchasing and product acquisition experience is the best. If we were to address case management in a healthcare environment, we would see the tracking of the life cycle of a patient, through their interactions with a healthcare provider or healthcare facility/system. HR Case Management can be viewed similarly, in that reporting and tracking employee interactions with HR allows for a greater understanding of the employee experience with the employer, and vice versa. Data collected using HR Case Management creates opportunity to efficiently handle questions, requests, and problems without losing any information, or letting issues or challenges to be mishandled, mismanaged or not managed at all. Recap The use of an HR Case Management system ensures that…
