  • HRO Today Baker's Dozen 2018 Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings: RPO

    View the results of this year’s RPO Baker’s Dozen ranking.

    By The Editors

    HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute to buyers directly through our own mailing lists and indirectly through service providers. Once collected, response data for all providers with a statistically significant sample size are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis.

    By Elliot H. Clark

    For many years, HRO Today has provided numerous customer satisfaction based rankings of providers through the HRO Today Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction surveys. We appreciate the notoriety and respect the practitioner community has placed in the methodology of the ranking.

  • HRO Today Global Summer 2018 Mindfulness Meditations

    Leatham Green shares his insights about the benefits of a mindful, holistic wellness approach to employee health and productivity.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    Mindfulness can be defined as the act of noticing things. Whilst the practice has its roots in Buddhist tradition, it has expanded to serve a more secular function thanks to one reason: By actively observing, mindfulness allows people to become fully immersed and engaged with their reality. In turn, fostering greater awareness promotes curiosity, understanding, and acceptance. It is for this reason that Leatham Green, founder of the Mindful HR Centre, has embarked on a career that promotes mindfulness as a key business strategy.

    By Mary Stoik Dymond
