Low tech tools for HR professionals
6 dagen
I am a big fan of cool HR tech. There are also many low- or non tech tools that can be very useful for the HR professional. Some tools out of my toolbox. 1. Calculator The good old calculator belongs in every HR toolbox. Don’t overestimate your calculating capabilities. Use your machine, iPhone or the calculator on your laptop. 2. Checklist Checklists are powerful. Al time management systems start with basic to-do lists. I use Asana, but I also create a daily To-Do list on paper. Make a...

Useful Personal Tech for HR Professionals
2 maanden
In an interview I was asked the question: “What tools and technology do you use at the HR Trend Institute? Do you walk the talk?”. The HR Trend Institute is a small organization.

I can give an overview of the applications I personally use, and I think many of them can be very useful for HR professionals. I am not sponsored by any of the applications I mention, so no worries!

Personalisation in HR: some ideas
3 maanden
Are you able to personalise? A friend complained to me about one of her co-workers. This IT-consultant lives around 100 kilometers from the office, and his daily commute is two times ninety minutes. When the project team is working overtime as a deadline is approaching, he is always the first one to leave. “I have to drive a long way, so I am leaving. See you tomorrow”. My friend considered this to be unfair. They have to continue working, while he is driving home. What was my view...

Is it time to replace your CHRO?

The new paradigm that sees people as intrinsically motivated, forms fertile ground for gamification, which offers many possibilities to address that intrinsic...
