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.

Achieving Payroll Globalisation

Payroll complexity remains a major challenge for multinational companies expanding into new international markets.

By Marta Chmielowicz

Payroll today is about much more than just paying employees. It is about ensuring that their personal data remains secure whilst navigating ever-shifting legislation and privacy regulations, unstandardised solutions, changes in workforce structures, and rapidly advancing technologies. And when international operations are added into the mix, the complexity of payroll can seem even more overwhelming. In fact, according to NGA Human Resources’ 2017 Global Payroll Complexity Index, the only constant in global payroll is constant change.

Towards Tomorrow

Covering topics from AI to succession planning, the EMEA and APAC HRO Today Forum events provide a valuable opportunity to learn, share, and ultimately, succeed.

By Marta Chmielowicz

Automation. Globalisation. Talent shortages. Regulatory compliance. Leadership development. Diversity and inclusion. Employee wellness. Data security. Workforce planning. Employee engagement. Change management. Outsourcing. Succession planning. The list of challenges facing today’s HR professionals goes on and on. In these volatile, complex, and uncertain times, the rapidly transforming business landscape is forcing the world of HR to evolve its entire approach to talent management. And throughout all of these changes, HR executives remain accountable for two key functions: taking care of workers and adding business value.

Temporary Moves

Gig economy workers seek relocation opportunities, but job classification challenges and local regulations remain a barrier.

By Mary Stoik Dymond

The rising trend of professional gig work is shifting the boundaries on the permanent, full-time employment norm. In fact, some analysts are even predicting that more than half of workers will be contractors or gig workers in the near future (Nation1099). The composition of workplace talent is nearing a tipping point, and the global gig economy is only poised to grow.

By Ayana Collins and Leigh Jose

Mental health—not a common topic of discussion in the office, but when nearly 450 million people across the globe live with mental illnesses, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), self-care benefits and support should become a focus of employer-provided programmes.

2018 Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings: Employee Recognition

We rank the top providers based on customer satisfaction surveys.

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. For this survey, we required 10 responses from seven companies.

Join the Conversation

By D. Zachary Misko

Thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas; turn ideas into reality; and know and show how to replicate their success. We certainly have a great group of thought leaders and innovators involved in our association and our HRO Today Forum events, as demonstrated by the outstanding group of senior HR executives and industry experts who attend and speak at our events, in our magazine, and as part of our association.

Protecting HR Investments in Services and Technology

By Elliot H. Clark

For many years, HRO Today has provided numerous customer satisfaction based rankings of providers through the HRO Today Magazine Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction surveys. We appreciate the notoriety and respect the practitioner community has placed in the methodology of the ranking. However, we only perform this kind of study in up to 10 areas of technology or service. This leaves many categories that are not covered or fall neatly into the Baker’s Dozen programme.
