  • Two quick HR thoughts…

    13/05/2019 Duração: 04min

    Here are two quick HR thoughts to think about as you start your week... 1: If you haven't heard about the SAP purchase of Qualtrics...then you better research it because "experience management" is about to become the new normal of business, and part of that is Employee Experience. SAP Qualtrics 2: Hear about aesthetic-usability effect and how you can use it in HR. The aesthetic-usability effect refers to users’ tendency to perceive attractive products as more usable. People tend to believe that things that look better will work better — even if they aren’t actually more effective or efficient. Additional information found here.
