Employee Surveys Provide Answers to Difficult Questions
As an employer, you must make sure that your employees are happy with their jobs.
However, simply walking up to them and asking them is not likely to give you honest results. Employees are not going to tell the person that signs their paychecks that they are unhappy. The best way to get accurate, honest answers is through the use of employee surveys. These surveys offer various questions to employees pertaining to various aspects of your business. These surveys will discover whether your employees are happy and satisfied – or unhappy and disgruntled.
Your workers are a vital part of the success of your business. Without them, you will be left doing everything on your own. You need to keep your employees happy to ensure that they stay with you through thick and thin, through the good and the bad. Our surveys can help you find both the strengths and weaknesses of your overall business operation.

Yahoo Bans Working From Home?
Richard Branson Weighs In
I have to admit I was completely surprised at Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's recent announcement that the company will ban teleworking for most of its employees. It seems like a backwards move for a company struggling to maintain its mojo, which I doubt will do anything to improve morale at the company. Mayer has come in for much criticism for the move and today Virgin Group founder Richard Branson weighed in on the decision too with the following tweet:
We agree with Branson on this one. Study after study has shown that giving workers more flexibility improves productivity, loyalty and engagement. What do you think?

HR Priorities for the New Year in 2013
What are the most important goals for your oranization in the coming year? The folks over at Ceridian have an interesting infographic giving some answers to this question. The following is a summary of what they found:
Here's what the numbers say...
32% say customer focused initiatives
Top 5 Challenges
Do you agree with this list?
1. Attracting technical talent
Top 5 Business Risks
1. Loss of customers
It's no suprise that employee engagagement and the risk of talent shortages are high on all these lists. 52% of U.S. employers are having difficulty filling positions in spite of an unemployment rate of close to 8%. Since talented, engaged employees are vital to the success of any customer focused business it's easy to understand where these numbers are coming from. Among other suggestions for achieving 2013 goals, Ceridian recommends outsourcing non-core activities and using workforce analytics ans part of a multi-year consumer-directed strategy.
An annual employee enagement survey and well-desiged action plan should be part of that process. Many employers think an employee engagement strategy is about doing what's needed for employees, but it's really about doing the things needed to build strong, long-lasting customer relationships. Because without loyal customers you won't have employees. That should be your main resolution for 2013.Read full post

Send Your Robot to Work
Wasn't this a hilarious Big Bang Theory episode? You know, the one where Dr. Sheldon Cooper decides to send himself to work via a PC screen attached to a mobile robot. Double Robotics has created this novel device which allows you to turn your iPad into a movable virtual presence device just like Sheldon's making plain old teleconferencing look positively stone age.
According to the Double Robotics Web site: "Double is the simplest, most elegant way to be somewhere else in the world without flying there. The minimalist design and intuitive touchscreen controls allow you to freely move around without inconveniencing others. You can stay at eye level, whether sitting or standing, by adjusting your height remotely, which makes conversations fluid and real. Retractable kickstands will automatically deploy to conserve power when you are not moving around".
Check out the video below to see how it works.
Then check out the Big Bang Theory scene where Lenonard drives Sheldon's "double" to the office. Bazinga. This really could revolutionize the workplace.
