As little girls, we’ve been trained to compete to be the prettiest, the most popular, the skinniest. It’s engrained in us – thank you Disney for all those princess movies.

At the first ever Ceridian Women’s Network (CWN) Summit at our INSIGHTS customer forum, it was all about linking women together and creating a network of support instead of competition. Read more

Take Coffee Breaks With Your Team to Improve Productivity

By Michael Petrescu-Comnene, Dayforce Lead Software Developer, Ceridian

Over the years, many around the office have wondered why I have a borderline industrial grade coffee grinder in our lunch room. This blog is dedicated to each of you.

As a coffee nut, most afternoons, I usually spend 20 minutes meticulously weighing, grinding, pouring and stirring my high-altitude grown single origin African coffees. Then I drink it with one or a couple of my colleagues. Time-waster or productivity booster?  Personal experience points me to the latter. Coffee (drinking and education) is one of my many passions outside of work. Sharing this passion at work has given me a window into many of my colleagues’ hobbies as well. Through a quick coffee-making session in the kitchen I’ve been able to find out that there are some serious cooks, skiers, and olive oil connoisseurs amoung us at Ceridian. It just so happens that this very blog idea sprang from learning I have a common interest with a member of the Social Media Team (Food, but that’s another blog). Jokes aside, conversations over coffee help me work better and here’s why: Read more

Women in Tech: Thoughts from Ceridian’s Chief People Officer #HRTechConf

By Lisa Sterling, Chief People Officer, Ceridian

Women in the technology field face a vast number of career challenges, from lack of development and mentoring opportunities to unequal pay. But these obstacles aren’t really unique to the tech industry.  Women across all industries struggle with them on a daily basis.

At the recent HR Technology Conference in Chicago, I had the honor of sharing the stage with other amazing female leaders to share ways we can better align our people and HR initiatives to support women in the workplace. As the mother of 3 girls, it’s my responsibility to teach my girls to be brave, and that they don’t have to be the helpless princess in their story. They can be the coder, the VP, the CEO. As Ceridian’s Chief People Officer, I hope I am doing something that shows my daughters that they can do anything they want if they work hard enough. Read more

By Jay Greaves, VP of Sales Effectiveness, Ceridian

In my home we are HUGE fans of the Olympic Games. It’s always been that way since my childhood and became even more so in 1996 when I served as an envoy for the United States Olympic Team. Beyond enjoying athletic competition, I really enjoy watching examples of all kinds of activities play out in the world. We see examples of commitment, diligence, focus, sportsmanship, competition, humanity, humility, and so many other great traits. And of course, leadership. We see leadership in lots of expected places, from lots of expected individuals, and also in many that are surprising. Read more

Key steps to building a values-based culture

By Lisa Bull, VP of Employee and Leadership Learning, Ceridian

What moves organizations to focus time, energy, and resources on building a values-based culture? While the specifics may vary, here are just a few reasons: (1) the need to unify disparate groups (eg. following a merger or acquisition), (2) the recognition of a competitive marketplace, and (3) an ever-changing talent pool.

At the first ever Ceridian Women’s Network (CWN) Summit at our INSIGHTS customer forum, it was all about linking women together and creating a network of support instead of competition.

In corporate speak, the CWN Summit gave women (and men) the chance to share their thoughts on gender diversity hot topics and their impact in today’s workplace. In other words, 200+ women and brave men building relationships, learning, and debating about gender diversity issues. Read more
