Is your HR software increasing employee engagement?

HR employee alignment software serves many functions within a company – it can be used for a variety of things from recruitment to performance management to safety and wellness. At CRS Technologies we specialise in both human resources and payroll solutions that help your company operate more efficiently and allow you and your workforce to be more productive. How can HR programmes increase employee engagement? Engagement starts with attitude, meaning the staff want to be involved in the company, want to contribute and know what’s going on. Employee Engagement  software that is user-friendly and comprehensive will encourage a positive attitude more than complicated, complex HR software. It allows upper management to connect with staff they may not communicate with on a regular basis. This eliminates the “closed door” feeling many people have with their superiors and opens the lines of communication to encourage conversation. Great Employee Alignment HR software gives employees the tools necessary to collaborate and interact. As the saying goes, two minds are better than one, so when employees have opportunities to collaborate and brainstorm with one another, it can yield amazing results. iSight, our Employee Alignment software allows you to share your game plan clearly with all staff, align every employee’s role to your goals, track employee’s outcomes delivery monthly, link employees to workgroups and much more. You’ll be able to communicate easily with targeted groups of people while providing continuous feedback and recognise outstanding contributions to your company.

What is it to be a professional woman in SA’s corporate sector?

Posted by on Sep 4, 2014 in Business Leadership Convention | 0 comments

What is it to be a professional woman in SA’s corporate sector?  The biggest mistake professional women make in business is trying to act like men.  I am a businesswoman who believes that success doesn’t show up at work wearing a suit and tie.  So, my first point is that the key to success at work doesn’t depend on gender.  That said, there are still challenges that women face in the corporate sector that many of our male colleagues don’t. The key to success in business today for women is having a good network, courage and a good support base.  For a man, often the support base is a woman and so the professional woman needs to develop a wider support base – friends, family and other colleagues as well as a partner, if one is around. Recruitment in South Africa today is focused on employment equity appointments with a bias towards women so the opportunities for women in business have never been greater but – be prepared – just because you are the flavour of the month for the recruiters doesn’t always mean that the corporate environment welcomes you with open arms.   Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, wrote the book ‘Lean In’ in response to the ways women are held back – and the way we hold ourselves back.  Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘women are the most underused resource’.  These are strong words from incredibly strong female business icons and I think we need to look inwards as well as outwards.  Whether we like it or not, at this point in history we are still fighting for equality in the workplace, so my philosophy is to learn from our male counterparts; they have some good skills.  Since the philosophy is seldom returned, we can only enrich ourselves at their expense. As professional women in corporate South Africa, we must understand the businesses that we are in and learn to speak business ‘lingo’.  Whether we run our own businesses or work in the corporate sector, if we don’t understand the finances and the business strategy we are not in the game. Especially when starting out in business and perhaps coming from a culture of male domination which many of us do, this is a disadvantage.  The big thing, though, is what we do if we realise that we are at a disadvantage.  My experience has been to continuously learn – I recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women [proper name] which taught me such a lot about aspects of business that I had not previously been exposed to.  I continually learn from both men and women, people who inspire me to become a better person.  Of...
