Create Engaged Employees with Inspired Collaboration

| October 1, 2016

For this blog post, I wanted to focus on an area that I’m passionate about: Engaging employees with better collaboration. This is a real problem in our organizations. Workers who feel siloed don’t know how they fit and how their work matters to the company.  During the webinar, Paul told a story about a former organization where he worked that had a forlorn intranet that was pretty much a “document graveyard.” Once he came to Saba, he discovered the company’s very vibrant intranet with live conversation, kudos and tips and tricks shared among colleagues.Good collaboration tools can help enable the type of collaboration that makes colleagues in Los Angeles, London, Berlin and Shanghai feel as if they sit across the room from each other. I was an early adopter of collaboration tools at another organization years ago. With one project I remember very clearly, I collaborated all day with colleagues on another continent. When I was finally able to meet one of my colleagues in person, we greeted each other like lifelong friends. Our collaboration made us engaged employees, and our work benefited from this connection.

When you’re juggling factors like employees’ wages and salaries, employee benefits and incentives, tax deductions, and much more, things get complicated quickly. Plus, every state has its own tax regulations, so it’s easy to miss details if you are not careful.

5 Hacks to Avoid Virtual Meeting Fatigue (#2 is my favorite)

Article | August 10, 2020

With the requirement for many of us to work from home it seems that life as we know it has morphed into one long, never-ending Zoom-Skype-WebEx-Hangout-Meet video fest. During the last few months I’ve attended great virtual meetings and, unfortunately, quite a few that, well to be honest, sucked. Personally, I’ve gone from zero to hero[ine] regarding Zoom functionality, with multiscreen displays, two camera angles, shared whiteboards, breakout rooms, etc. You name it, my team and I are exploiting technology to ensure our events are interactive, fun, and more importantly impactful.

Making your project the project of choice–for workers

Article | July 23, 2020

There are reams of publications, estimating guides, reference materials, and internal and external benchmarking data regarding items that negatively impact productivity, whether it be site complexity, working at height, adverse weather conditions, and site congestion, to name a few. But, what about quantifying the influences of soft issues like remoteness of site, rotation schedules, camp amenities, and the ability to connect back home with family and loved ones? Items that affect the motivation of all workers. There are currently no evidence-based methods that can quantify the cost implications of these items. Hatch, in collaboration with Concordia University, aims to identify factors that influence productivity, assess the degree of impacts, and quantify the effects of these factors.
