Estimated reading time: 5 minutes I don’t need to produce any statistics to convince you that video calls are popular. Over the past year, the use of video call technology has grown exponentially – to the point where we actually have video call fatigue. Personally, I think one of the reasons that we have video call fatigue is because we haven’t developed any universally accepted rules or etiquette. Video calls …

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes While we’ve been spending a lot of time talking about when employees will be returning to the office, it’s important to realize that some employees might not.

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes You have probably noticed individuals who share their pronouns on their social media accounts. LinkedIn recently included the ability to add gender pronouns to your user account. But do you know why individuals do it? I’ll be honest, I wanted to learn more about this, so I listened to an online session from last year’s Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Inclusion conference. Pronoun sharing …

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes During the last SAP SuccessFactors Conference, I heard an interesting term that got me thinking. The term was “opportunity marketplace”. It was explained as a place – both virtual and in-person – where employees engage to better themselves and ultimately produce organizational results. I like the term.
