Guest:

John Ruhlin, public speaker and author of Giftology: The Art and Science of Using Gifts to Cut Through the Noise, Increase Referrals, and Strengthen Retention

With the holiday season on the minds of managers and employees, now is the time for celebration and gift-giving. This is a perfect opportunity for HR managers to take a closer look at their gifting policies. How can you use this chance to create company advocates? You do it by finding presents that can help boost employee engagement and productivity.

In this special 50th episode of HR Break Room, John Ruhlin joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • how to identify the right gift for your people
  • why giving it can boost employee morale and productivity
  • the importance of giving at the right time and personalizing each gift to the recipient’s needs
  • the effectiveness of gift-giving throughout the year

HR Break Room is also celebrating its 50th episode by giving gifts of our own and announcing the winners of our “5 Days, 5 Giveaways” contest.

Guests:

Joe Callender, Ernst and Young executive director of quantitative economics and statistics

Ari Teichman, Ernst and Young senior manager of quantitative economics and statistics

Sam Norman, Paycom executive vice president of sales

According to a 2016 study conducted by HR.com, companies surveyed reported that allowing employees to complete their own HR tasks through software saves their HR department an average of seven hours a week. A new study from Ernst & Young takes this idea a step further. Performing HR tasks manually or not letting employees enter their own information costs employers an average of $4.39 for every point of data entry.

With the cost of HR tasks becoming more evident and costly in the digital era, what is keeping organizations from making the move to self-service technology? And how can incorporating HR technology streamline processes and save organizations time, money and productivity?

In this episode of HR Break Room, host Caleb Masters is joined by a panel of experts to discuss:

  • Ernst & Young's study detailing how manual HR tasks are slowing productivity and costing organizations around the country
  • the costly compliance risks of manually entering data multiple times
  • how HR can help complete the digital transformation within their organization by removing manual tasks with self-service HR software for employees
