I once heard it said that if a man isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get. Well, I am here to tell you that I am acutely aware of how blessed I am. My blessings start with my family. I know that I am lifted up by their love and the faith we share in our creator. I am also thankful for the opportunity to do what I do each and every day. I do not take it for granted that we live in a uniquely enabling country where I have been free to start an organization that has grown into the premier workplace consulting organization that...

Enough can’t be said about how the latest and greatest technology continues to improve at an exponential rate with immediate impacts on our day-to-day life.

Throw in that these solutions also integrate with today’s easy-to-use mobile devices and offer customizable apps, then add the increased importance of corporate sustainability programs, and you can see that CRE...

The conclusions in both of these blogs and webinar highlight the need to...

There’s an old quote attributed to General George Patton, “a good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week." While that practice may apply to many situations, it most definitely does not apply to rolling out new software solutions. As we’ve seen in recent news, thoroughly testing a new software solution prior to go-live is an absolute must. This applies to all software solutions – even IWMS implementations. We all know end users are very intolerant of solutions that don’t work as expected. Sometimes “as expected” is a...

As work becomes more dispersed, the tools that we use to communicate and collaborate become more powerful and provide new features that enable greater interaction. What was once a slide-show-like capability becomes an audience engagement activity. The tools now allow for real-time interaction and provide the ability to engage with multiple employees synchronously and asynchronously. For many, the support model for these tools is transparent – IT manages these things, and they do it well. There are, however, many who still struggle with a support model that puts these tools right in the...
