On March 18, I was the guest on the DriveThruHR Radio. For those unfamiliar with DriveThruHR, it is a lunchtime chat about topics relevant to HR professionals. Each 30-minute episode features a guest speaker who shares her or his knowledge and experience in human resources. The show runs daily, Monday through Friday, at 12:00 pm Central Time. The host on my show was Bryan Wempen, @bryanwempen, who shares hosting duties with William Tincup, @williamtincup, and Nisha Raghavan, @thehrbuddy.
New Accenture research reports that “the vast majority of professionals surveyed (91 percent) agree that the most successful employees will be those who can adapt to the changing workplace, and nearly as many (89 percent) report that they thrive on or don’t mind change. Although technology is increasingly gaining traction in the workplace today, Dion Hinchcliffe notes in ZDNet that “its strategic adoption and meaningful application by the typical worker is actually just beginning.”
According to the US government (USAgov.com), the top 5 most popular New Year’s resolutions are:
- Lose Weight
- Volunteer to Help Others
- Quit Smoking
- Get a Better Education
- Get a Better Job
While I wish IHRIM could help with the first resolution (top on my list, again, this year), and we don’t have a smoking cessation program, IHRIM can help you with three resolutions – Volunteering, Education, and Career Growth.

Every time I go to a Human Capital Management (HCM) technology vendor exposition, whether it is at IHRIM, HRTech, or one of the many HR Associations, I am always amazed at the number of vendors, especially new vendors. It has become an overwhelming job just knowing the changes and upgrade offerings of the major players in HCM, but dozens of new niche vendors offer new systems solutions each year. How do you know what the right fit is? Which will be reliable? Who will treat your organization as special? These are tough questions to answer in the fast changing world of HCM technology.
