No Kid Hungry

Would you be surprised to know that there are hungry children in America? Especially right now – the summer months are very hard for children who no longer receive supplemental meals from their schools.

Dovetail Software is responding to this knowledge by, once again, raising awareness and hosting an event at the SHRM 15 National Conference June 28 – July 1 in Las Vegas. Joining us in this effort are our fellow event sponsors Quantum Workplace, Broadbean Technology, and Branded Strategies.

Our #SHRMpoetry campaign launched last week and is gaining attention as more and more in the HR industry become aware of childhood hunger in America; 1 in 5 children do not receive the nutrition they

I never tire of conference season.  Getting to see so many familiar faces, hearing the latest from the world of Human Resources and shared services, seeing all the advances in the HR technology world are perks of the job.  And I’m excited to say the season is upon us again.  It is, truly, the most wonderful time of the year.

If you happen to be out and about, I’d love the chance to say hello.  The standing offer, as usual, is that if we’ve not met before and you catch up to me, I’ll buy the first round of coffee.  So where can you cash in?  We will be making our annual trek to the HR Technology Conference, of course.  This year we’re also supporting our friends at cFactor as they host an Onboarding event featuring

Another year, another great event.

We are proud to get the chance to do some good for others in connection with SHRM Annual, this time held in Orlando.  Once again, we partnered with our friends over at Dice to support No Kid Hungry.  This year, in case you hadn’t noticed, we hosted a bowling party fundraiser.  As an homage to Jeff Bridges, one of the biggest supporters of No Kid Hungry, We choose The Big Lebowski as our theme.  Special thanks to Kings Orlando for hosting us!

This year we raised over $5,000, which translates to 50,000 meals for children in America.  That’s a pretty good haul, we think.  (But if you’d like to

In what has become a much anticipated part of the SHRM Annual conference, the social team is once again taking time out on Sunday to benefit No Kid Hungry, this time hitting the lanes in tribute to The Big Lebowski and, of course, NKH mega-supporter Jeff Bridges.

This year, more than 16 million children in America will face

As we hit the home stretch of the year, we are inclined to reflect on what we’ve done, what we missed, and what we could improve on.  As I look back on 2013, I can’t help but be proud of the work we’ve done in several areas, not limited to that of an HR case management vendor, an HR shared services consultant, or our work evangelizing about HR technology.  I also think about the work we’ve done with the HR community and beyond.

We presented several hours of content for our HR practitioner friends, including live presentations at six different state SHRM conferences, HR Tech Europe, IQPC, LERHN and others.  We also either hosted, led or appeared on webinars all year, not

By now, you’ve hopefully seen all the posts and tweets about the kickball game at SHRM13. We couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished. Huge thanks to our sponsors, Dovetail Software and Dice, for helping us make it a reality. Also, of course, thanks to SHRM for bringing us together and supporting our efforts and to No Kid Hungry, the best darned partners a kid could ask for.


And if you somehow still haven’t donated, but would like to, you can find our page right here. It’s never too late to help!


So, ready for the wrap up?





We hope our friends like our small token of appreciation. This would not have happened without them!


Here’s a look at some of

What could be better than a game of street hockey at SHRM National in Atlanta, GA in June? A game of street hockey at SHRM National to raise money and awareness for the Atlanta, Mission.  The Atlanta Mission is one of SHRM’s charity partners and provides emergency shelter, residential discipleship, job attainment, and transitional housing to more than 950 homeless men, women and children daily.

Dovetail is teaming up with SHRM to sponsor the first ever SHRM 2012 Street Hockey game for charity on Sunday, June 24th at 5:30 ET. We are getting the ball rolling – or I guess the puck sliding – by donating $500 on behalf of Dwane Lay, Dovetail Head of HR Process Design and mastermind behind this year’s street hockey extravaganza.
