By: Jason Averbook
July 2019

Experience is everything. Employee experience should drive engagement, not enragement. While staying in a hotel for a client visit in New York last week, I had the kind of experience (real time, mobile, intuitive, not obtrusive, personal, all of those things) we should all have…

How To Enable and Sustain Changes Driven by Digital Transformation 

By: Kim Heger
July 2019

“The only constant is change.” I think a Greek philosopher said it first, but we’ve all said it over and over since its first uttering.

Employee Experience: Just Good Business Sense

By: Alex dePolo
June 2019

Let’s be honest. There are really two reasons employee experience is important: the default we hear about incessantly, and the other, which is infinitely more important. The first is more obvious, probably why we default to it. An awesome experience in moments that matter results in employees who feel like their company really cares…

February 2019

Throughout my career, I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with some amazing organizations helping with them through their digital transformations. While every client engagement is unique, project teams always seem to have one thing in common — they all suffer from “shiny object syndrome” (SOS) …

It’s Our Time — LEAP360 Platform

By: Jason Averbook
October 2018

There’s a buzzword we all love: DISRUPTION. We name conferences after it, we chase it like the Holy Grail, we toss it around our technology and processes and business cases and product roadmaps. DISRUPTION. It sounds bleeding edge. It sounds game-changing. It sounds forward-leaning and risk-taking. Ahh, we crave disruption...

June 2018

When I was at Gartner, I attended an analyst day for a talent management vendor whose CEO asked us our definition of a core HR system. I raised my hand and answered, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that it was a work and life event processing engine. That is still true, but it is terribly limiting view in today’s world…

By: Ryan Malkes
March 2018

The world is changing, the continents are drifting, the global temperature is increasing, and the way we work is almost unrecognizable at times. We have seen an exodus of organizations move from annual appraisal events to a constant stream of conversations. Employee transactions are no longer faxed to the personnel department for processing. The workforce experience is changing, life for the front lines is getting…

January 2018

At 6 a.m. Monday morning Shirley Rich, Autodash’s CEO and founder, approaches the front entrance of the company’s shiny new headquarters building. “Hi Door,” says Shirley, “Please open for employee zero zero zero one.” Matching Shirley’s unique voice to her employee number, the voice-activated door promptly slides open.
