Gamified Employee Engagement

Interview with Lam Mun Choong, Founder & CEO at SelfDrvn

Recently I made the reluctant decision to buy a Nintendo Switch for my kids.

They never had a console before and I’m afraid they would spend the whole day on gaming and nothing else.

But some relief sinks in when I got to see three of them playing co-op in Mario.

They were helping and learning from each other at the same time. They were engaged.

Which reminded me of the 2014 study by the American Psychological Association in which they concluded that video game play may provide learning, health and social benefits.

How Technology Can Streamline Human Resources

Managing human relations in a company is a big task.

In fact, employees who oversee these aspects of a company are managing a lot, like hiring, on-boarding, training, employee benefits, company culture and setting goals.

My 2019

review of my year

Doing a year review is always tough because chances are you won’t remember the things that happened way back in January.

Unless it is me winning Toto first prize but that’s another thing.

It would be great if there is an app where I can do my daily journaling and end of the year, it could spit out a Year in Review.

Something like what Facebook does but I barely spent time there now.

Having said that, my daily 5-min journaling habit is still on track.

How can we be future-ready by design?

It is these questions People Matters TechHR Singapore 2020 will explore and hope to find the answers to.

5 Mistakes To Avoid When Implementing an ATS Into Your Hiring Process

Improve your sales forecast accuracy with Anaplan and Salesforce Einstein

As a sales leader, you are asked to hold a tremendous amount of knowledge about the deals in your pipeline.

With each rep and each territory, you need enough information to estimate deal maturity and the likelihood of deals closing.

Yet period after period—and despite your sales forecast—your team ends up scrambling to close deals in the final few weeks.

Some inevitably close late or lose momentum entirely.

The trouble with this is not only that deals slip, but that inaccurate forecasts can have a cascading effect across your organization.

Get certified by global leaders: TechHR Certification Workshops

It’s no news that the adoption and integration of intelligent HR-tech solutions are essential aspects for making a better business impact with HR.

To enable and empower the people and the organization, HR teams have to develop new workplace models and design output-driven work processes.

However, the lack of resources, knowledge and insights are holding back HR teams from driving this transformation in their respective companies.

As pointed out by Deloitte’s 2019 Global Human Capital Report, HR leaders are no longer simply ‘digitizing’ their work, but ‘digitalizing’ their entire work process to integrate technology into the core of job roles.
