Having to stare at a computer as you wait for IT at a web design development company to bring you the login details is not only a time waster, but it makes for an awkward situation. The best approach is to have every facet of the integration process ready. If there are forms they need to fill in and sign, have a file prepared for them, along with other credentials they might need. There are fantastic apps that you can use to have someone sign their contract automatically, that way they are ready to get to work on the first day.

10 Things COVID-19 Has Taught Us About Employee Surveys

Article | June 25, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on our daily lives. We live, work, and interact with each other very differently than we did just a few short weeks ago. And it’s fair to say that COVID-19 will have lasting impacts on our personal and professional lives in the future. Exactly what those impacts are remains to be seen, as governments and businesses are slowly reopening and returning employees to the workplace. To support organizations during this turbulent time, the Perceptyx team surveyed more than 500,000 employees from enterprises across every major industry, helping drive insights into the specific and immediate needs of employees at this time. We asked about company responses to COVID-19, the remote work experience, front-line work experiences, and concerns about returning to the work environment.

COVID-19 will not come to an end this week and neither should mental health awareness

Article | June 20, 2020

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, I remember planning the activities for the week ahead vividly. I play an active role in Lane4's mental health awareness team (Mind4) and can remember being clustered together in one of the many Olympic themed meetings rooms at Lane4 (it was actually Tokyo 2020, the irony!). Fast forward to Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, this week, and it all feels very different in comparison to last year. In recognition of this feeling, our Mind4 team have run an array of activities not just this week, but every week since the launch of the furlough scheme following the outbreak of COVID-19. In the absence of regular human connection, our aim has been to create an environment, albeit a virtual one, that gives our employees (furloughed or not) an opportunity to connect with one another.

Article | February 24, 2020

How can HR practitioners attract and nurture a wholly diverse workforce, and why should they? That’s a big ask for one article, but in this piece I’m going to try to summarise the opportunities that employers have in recruiting a more diverse workforce. These days we speak a lot about employers’ responsibilities where diversity is concerned, and of course they do have a responsibility to be far more diverse and inclusive than they have been in the past.

5 Hacks to Avoid Virtual Meeting Fatigue

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.
