Have Your Processes in Order Before Implementing HR Technology

first_imgOne of the recurring conversations I had during the first day of the HR Technology Conference revolved around using these tools to solve business problems. The issue with that, says Michael Rochelle, Chief Strategy Officer at Brandon Hall Group, is that “HR is a buffet of broken processes.” Applying technology to a misaligned strategy, poor tool selection, or inefficient process isn’t going to magically solve anyone’s problems—in fact, it’s just as likely to exacerbate the problem instead.When we recently did research on talent management systems, more than 1 in 4 companies was actively considering switching to a new system or provider. Consider for a moment how many of those companies might actually have the right solution, but they don’t have the right processes in place to support it. Or the opposite could very well be true: the company doesn’t have the right processes or technology in place and needs to make a change to one or both.So do I think HR technology is a worthwhile investment in terms of time and money? Certainly! But implementing a new tool can’t be done in a vacuum. The decisions we make as a business impact the decisions we have to make as HR leaders, and vice versa.HR needs to make sure it has its house in order process-wise before anything else. In the long run, that will lead to greater satisfaction, efficiency, and effectiveness with the selected tools. HR technology can’t fix HR, but we can. Here are a few questions to consider as you think through how this might affect your organization:·         What problems are we facing that can’t be solved by HR technology?·         What problems are we facing that can be solved by HR technology?·         What process issues are we aware of but haven’t yet fixed?·         What process issues impact our business that we haven’t yet identified?At the end of the day, this is bigger than what we can cover in a single blog post. The key takeaway is to see HR technology solutions for what they are—tools to make existing processes better. If your current process is broken, expect frustrations and dissatisfaction when it comes to your technology.What are your thoughts? Can HR technology solve some of the key problems HR faces? If so, how?last_img read more

Apple’s iWork Goes (Partly) Online

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Apple#news#NYT#Product Reviews#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Apple today announced an online component to its iWork productivity suite. This, however, is not the rumored online version of iWork we were hoping for, as it only allows you to share documents online through iWork.com. After you share a document through the newly released iWork ’08 desktop software, your friends and co-workers can comment and leave notes on your Keynote, Pages, or Numbers documents, though the documents themselves can’t be edited online. Apple is releasing this as a free beta today, and Phil Schiller announced this as “the beginning of a great new service,” which leads us to believe that Apple is indeed working on a more advanced online version of iWork.According to Schiller, iWork.com will work on all the major browsers, including Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Documents are not only viewable online, but can also be downloaded.Apple also announced a Keynote Remote iPhone app, that will be available in the App Store for $0.99, as well as major updates to its iWork and iLife suites.

BCCI suspends Rajasthan Cricket Association to prevent Lalit Modi’s return

first_imgLalit ModiThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday suspended Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) soon after controversial cricket administrator Lalit Modi was declared elected as its president.The decision was taken by BCCI interim president Shivlal Yadav in the light of a provision in the Supreme Court order that allowed the world’s richest cricket board take action against the RCA.The BCCI has also decided to issue a show cause notice to the RCA over the contentious election held in December last year. It would now appoint an ad hoc committee to take care of Rajasthan cricket affairs until a full-fledged state body takes charge.Earlier in the day, Modi was declared the winner of the president’s election held on December 19. An SC bench had on April 30 directed the election officer of RCA elections to declare the results on Tuesday. However, it had allowed the BCCI to challenge the controversial Rajasthan Sports Act, 2005 that enabled Modi to contest for the RCA president’s post for a second time.last_img read more

Barber: My 5 Questions for Fall Camp

first_imgKyle Porter and Boone are in Stillwater asking coach Mike Gundy, his coordinators and assistants questions at the annual golf outing Thursday while I’m stuck in Dallas.There are plenty of problems, good and bad, the Cowboys are facing running into fall camp starting Sunday. Here are what I think the five most important ones are:1. How Long Until We Know the No. 2 Cornerback?When I asked Gundy about the corner situation at Big 12 Media Days, he threw out Adrian Baker’s name, which we already assumed, but that was it.Legitimately, eight players could start at any point this season. Like getting full on crackers, that’s hardly OK for a position like receiver, where potentially five guys are on the field at a time. It’s more like trying to get full on cotton candy when you’re talking about a two-man position like corner.AdChoices广告And on those lines, even if they get their No. 2 guy, who is No. 3 and No. 4?2. Which Receiver(s) Will be Left Behind?Among Marcell Ateman, Chris Lacy, Dillon Stoner, Tylan Wallace and Tyron Johnson, at least one of those will not get 25 catches this season.Maybe the obvious answers are Stoner and Wallace, the youngest of the bunch, but maybe not. Both of them play inside, and someone has to back up Jalen McCleskey.Unless Mason Rudolph starts throwing two balls per play, I can’t see how everyone’s quotas are going to be reached.3. What is Going to Happen to the ‘Others’ on Offense?With so much talk and intrigue with going five-wide, the cowboy backs and backup running backs could get lost in the sauce.(Poor, poor) Jeff Carr could extremely easily be relegated to backup return man. We might also be at this time next year saying how we should have included Keenan Brown in all of this.But the fact is that with such a striking embarrassment of depth at receiver, it will be so easy to forget about them and leave them off the field.4. How Fluid Will this Defense Look?The way I see it, only half of the defensive personnel is locked into position.Ramon Richards could drop into the box almost like a nickel cornerback. Kenneth Edison-McGruder could fall back in coverage. Almost all of the defensive ends could slide a gap or two toward the center. And a handful of the linebackers could fare well in man coverage.With the 3-3-5 scheme that we suspect will be the base defense, flexibility will be key (and valuable) except for guys like Tre Flowers, Chad Whitener and the defensive tackles.5. Can They Stay Healthy?I asked Rudolph how the offense would change if Justice Hill got injured, like he did this offseason, and he wasn’t having it.“Well, we’ve got Justice,” he said.Yes, for now and hopefully for the whole season, but it seems like this offense (and therefore this entire team) is one injury away to either of the guys in the backfield from complete meltdown.They have been reliable and dependable to this point during the season, but it does make you wonder about a team that has the eighth best odds to make the College Football Playoff.

That will still be necessary, but it won’t be enough.

Position Preview: OSU’s Running Back Depth Goes Beyond the Chuba Show

first_imgWe’re in Week 2 of our position previews, and this week we’ll take a look at a group that gives OSU fans a lot to be excited about.Oklahoma State’s running backs have been a point of pride for the team of the past few seasons with the stable’s skill and depth. The group definitely has skill in Chuba Hubbard. There is a lot of potential behind him, but that potential is a bit unproven for now. Let’s get into it.QB previewThe RB RoomA running back unit that lost Justice Hill and J.D. King might be thought to be in rough shape, but John Wozniak’s group still looks solid. Apart from Chuba Hubbard and LD Brown, the group is untested at the D-I level, but there is depth there without a doubt.LD Brown (R-Jr.): One of two returning members of the four-headed beast that was OSU’s running back unit in 2018, LD Brown played in 10 games last season but had only 163 yards. Seventy-seven of those yards came on a touchdown run against Missouri State.Micah Cooper (R-Jr.): Micah Cooper is the latest in a long line of players to come to Stillwater from NEO. A walk-on, Cooper originally went to D-II Henderson State out of Madill High School.Deondrick Glass (Fr.): Deondrick Glass comes to OSU as the 2019 recruiting class’ 13th-ranked running back. At Katy High School (TX), Glass ran for 4,964 yards and 82 touchdowns in his final three seasons. In his senior season alone, he ran for 1,951 yards and 30 touchdowns. He comes to OSU after having offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia, LSU, Miami, USC and a lot of others.Chuba Hubbard (R-So.): Chuba Hubbard took over as OSU’s RB1 early in last season’s Bedlam game after Justice Hill went down with injury, and Hubbard was fantastic. In his first year of college football, he ran for 740 yards and seven touchdowns on 124 carries. In three of the Cowboys’ final four games, Hubbard surpassed the 100-yard mark. He is still an underclassman, but he has the hype of a junior or senior entering the 2019 season.Dezmon Jackson (Jr.): Last season at Hutchinson Community College, Dezmon Jackson ran for 1,216 yards and 13 touchdowns on 163 characters. He was the 15th-ranked running back in the 2019 juco class. Jackson is the cousin of Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon.Jahmyl Jeter (R-Fr.): A power back, Jahmyl Jeter saw some special teams work in the Liberty Bowl, but he is still waiting for his first collegiate carry. Jeter ran for 4,008 yards and 48 touchdowns in his last three seasons at Brennan High School (TX), including a 1,033-yard, 16-touchdown senior season.Mbari Snoddy (R-Fr.): A walk-on who redshirted in 2018, Mbari Snoddy ran for 1,218 yards and scored 20 total touchdowns as a high school senior at Edmond Santa Fe in 2017.2019 ExpectationsThis season will be the first full year of the Chuba Hubbard Show.Hubbard is the undoubted starter heading into his redshirt sophomore season, but behind him is where things get interesting. It looks like LD Brown, Jahmyl Jeter, Dezmon Jackson and Deondrick Glass will all compete for reps behind Hubbard.Glass is probably the most intriguing of the group given how highly regarded he was as a recruit, but he has the least experience and the other three were all participating in spring practices. With that said, Mike Gundy hasn’t ruled the freshman out as a contributor, going against what some would see as his liberal use of the redshirt over the past few seasons.“If he’s in good shape, he’s got skill,” Gundy said this spring. “Three weeks in August is all about durability and ‘Can I pick up the system?’ His skill set says if he can pick the system up and if he’s durable to make it through, he could play a role, too. If he is, you play him. You don’t really redshirt guys like that much anymore.”Unless one guy stood out behind closed doors this spring, it’s tough to say who will get the majority of Hubbard’s leftover work. It’s probably something that will get worked out in the early parts of the season before Big 12 play.Position StrengthsChuba Hubbard is legit.The Canadian flash’s ceiling is being one of the top running backs in the country, and his floor looks like it’s averaging 100 yards a game, which is an awesome floor. Durability was an unknown for Hubbard last year, but he stayed solid through the four games he was the Cowboys’ featured back.He also looks to have a solid supporting cast. In a state of transfers in college athletics, OSU has done an excellent job maintaining a solid stable of backs, a stable that survived a junior turning pro and a transfer.Often running backs are only as good as their offensive lines, and luckily for Hubbard and Co., the Cowboys’ line also looks to be going forward.Position WeaknessesIt’s easy to think the group has solid depth, but it’s honestly an unknown until it’s seen in live action.Apart from Hubbard and Brown, no one in the position group has taken a Division-I handoff before. If everything turns out how it expected, the Cowboys will have a bit of an embarrassment of riches in the backfield, but we won’t know for sure until at least Aug. 30.

Tylan Wallace Named to AP Preseason All-America Team

It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Tylan Wallace ended his breakout sophomore season as a second-team AP All-American. He’ll begin his junior season as a preseason AP All-American.Wallace is one of only two receivers on the AP’s preseason All-America team, which was released on Tuesday. The other: Alabama star Jerry Jeudy, who won the Biletnikoff Award over Wallace last season.Biletnikoff is the expectation for Wallace, who was snubbed last year from the award despite logging nearly 20 more receptions and 100 more yards receiving than Jeudy. If he’s able to put up similar stats as last year, he could exercise his right as a student-athlete to forgo his remaining college eligibility and enter the NFL draft. He’s on the radar, but Chris Trapasso of CBS says that possibility isn’t a done deal just yet.Last season in Stillwater, Wallace debuted as the Cowboys’ go-to target with 86 catches for 1,491 yards with 12 touchdowns. His receiving-yard market share was 37%. That’s a hefty figure for a receiver prospect in his final season in college. Wallace registered that as a 19-year-old redshirt sophomore.Oklahoma State runs a classic Air Raid system in which its wideouts are utilized on a variety of routes off the vertical stem. Wallace thrived getting down the field last year and flashed outstanding leaping ability and ball skills to come down with a plethora of passes in tight overage. Wallace looks like a 40-plus inch vertical type of wideout.His game is almost solely predicated on his long speed. While not someone who takes forever to get into top gear, he’s not a burst/twitch wideout and is most effective moving North-South. With more of a physical nature at the line, Wallace can further his game as one of the premier downfield receivers in this loaded class. [CBS Sports]Oklahoma State has had nearly 20 consensus All-Americans in its history, and receiver is the most repetitive spot it has claimed the honor. Justin Blackmon was a two-time consensus All-American, in 2010 and 2011. Dez Bryant (2008), Hart Lee Dykes (1988), James Washington (2017) and Rashaun Woods (2002) were all consensus All-Americans as well.last_img read more

I’m wearing all black this morning.Bullets Rundown• OSU’s crossroads• Sanders’ crossroads• How we view GundyScores• FB: OSU 45 | Baylor 27OSU Bullets• Jenni Carlson writes about OSU’s crossroads here.So, what will become of this season?Road games at Iowa State and West Virginia remain along with home games against TCU, Kansas and Oklahoma. Wins against at least two or three of those teams seem possible, but it’s hard to say that any of them are sure wins.“We’ve still got a whole bunch of football to play still,” Wallace said. “It’s really now about testing the kind of football player, the kind of person you are. Are we going to go in here and just kind of lay down? Or are we going to go out there and fight? [NewsOK]I normally chuckle at the “OSU will be lucky to make a bowl game” crowd. I don’t think I’m chuckling this year.• Guerin Emig writes about how Spencer is at a bit of a crossroads himself.He knows that. Youth isn’t an excuse, as Sanders himself realizes, saying: “A lot of people are like, ‘He’s a freshman.’ Nah. You can’t say that anymore. It’s my fault. I’ve gotta fix it.”He’s the only one who can do that. Gundy and Gleeson can talk about drilling ball security in practice, can even try to game-plan to promote it, but this is ultimately on the player.… So we’re back to Sanders playing through it, a kid who means well and wants so badly to do well, playing through the most trying stretch of his young career. [Tulsa World]Listen, I’m going down with the ship if it goes down. But the last eight quarters have been rough.• Not sure this is it …Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy complimented and criticized the fans all in one postgame interview and I get what he is saying. The comments from some of the fans as they were rushing out of the stadium after Baylor converted the last touchdown in 45-27 come from behind win at the start of the fourth quarter was pretty brutal, most of it aimed at Gundy. He’s the leader of the program and over the years, despite his success, he has won some fans over, but alienated others. [Go Pokes]This frames the entire thing to make it seem like people just don’t like Gundy because he’s Gundy. No, people are frustrated with Gundy for legit reasons because OSU is 10-13 in their last Big 12 games and 7-6 as a home favorite since 2017. That’s not reactionary, it’s a reality.• Only six teams have a worse turnover margin than OSU right now. The names are not encouraging: UNLV, New Mexico, Rutgers.• Here are my 10 thoughts on the game. And a notebook.• This thread on Gundy — if you’re a PFB+ subscriber — is amazing to roll through.
