Here’s What’s Keeping You Up At Night

From concerns about how to motivate employees to meet company goals to worries over how to gain a “big picture” of company talent through data and analytics, a host of work-related issues haunted HR professionals in 2016, according to SilkRoad’s latest “What Keeps HR Up At Night?” report.

The Hidden Employee – What We Learned from Last Night

I had a post locked and loaded for today but after listening to the pundits on a variety of channels discuss the surprise outcome of the Presidential election I thought it might be more apropos to talk about something that each and every person who is responsible for employees, either as an HR pro or a manager, needs to be aware of.
