The Rise of a Great Partnership

Partnership
October 3, 2017 One of my favorite quotes from David Duffield, Co-founder /Co-CEO Workday is, “I’m sort of a foot-on-the-gas kind of guy.” We've noticed and we are happy for the ride! The Power of Partnerships I've been able to see first hand the power of partnerships over the last several years while working for and with HR Tech companies. Establishing and maintaining partnership relationships has developed some lasting friendships and superior allies in a space many of us love. Our partnership with Workday is no different.

Healthcare HR: Addressing the Ongoing Staffing Shortage

healthcare HR staffing shortage
September 12, 2017 Not Much Has Changed When I first started recruiting in healthcare fifteen plus years ago, it seemed like all that was talked about was the nursing shortage. The conversation is ongoing and, sadly, hasn't changed much. This Healthcare HR trending topic is addressed by many - the topic is addressed - but, not the issue. Employee Engagement > Retention For many years, we have been talking about how employer branding and employee engagement leads to the retention of quality talent. “The talent shortage isn’t going to go away any time soon, but just like any other industry, healthcare can look to leverage partners to assist with systems and best practices to attract the kind of people you need..” – Dan White, President of Workforce Solutions at AMN Healthcare Tune in for the second part of the podcast series, "Healthcare HR in Crisis" with guest…

Healthcare HR in Crisis

Healthcare HR
September 10, 2017 Why I Care My first "HR" job, if you will, was as a sourcer for a healthcare-specific executive search firm. This job changed my life. No, seriously. Several things happened. I fell in love with recruiting, every part of it -- EXCEPT telling someone that they didn't get the job - that remains, to this day, one of the "work duties" I have disliked most. After having spent 20 years in the dental field, I transitioned easily to healthcare, and really grew to the love the business of healthcare. I realized that I had a mind for business and I quickly changed my major from Education (I had wanted to teach junior high - I know - I'm nuts!) to Business and adjusted mind-blowingly quickly to a corporate mindset. The sales professional in me found a new and exciting home…

Configuration vs. Customization

Configuration vs. Customization
June 22, 2017 Discussion and Confusion about the Difference There is a healthy amount of discussion (and an unhealthy amount of confusion) over the difference between configuration and customization where software is concerned. If you are one of our clients (and if you aren't, there's way to fix that), you probably know this already, but we think it is a big enough deal that we thought we'd talk about it more. And we've done a quick 30-min presentation on this same topic. If you've had more than two conversations with me, you'll know that I love analogies.  In fact, my love for analogies is like a simile. I'm not always great with either of them. But to explain the difference between customization and configuration, I have just the analogy for the job.  We will use the wardrobes of two famous billionaires. First up,…

Discovering HR Case Management

discovering HR Case Management
May 15, 2017 HR Case Management Case Management, itself, speaks to tracking cases or issues with clients or customers. Healthcare Case Management tracks the life cycle of a patient, through every interaction with a healthcare provider or healthcare facility/system. HR Case Management is the reporting and tracking of every single employee interaction with the human resources department in an organization. This allows for the best understanding possible of the employee experience with the employer, as well as understanding the employer experience with said employee. And it is all about collecting the data from those interactions, then saving and using that data for future interactions, questions, or issues that come into HR - this keeps any information from being lost or allowing issues or challenges to be mishandled, mismanaged or not managed at all. The Flow of HR Case Management Made Easy Employee contacts…
