We’re now halfway through winter. And though spring is in less than 60 days away, the dreary weather of winter is just starting to hit its peak. For many people, snow storms, extreme cold, and other inclement weather conditions can be the source of a wide range of frustrating disruptions – from commuting delays to school cancellations.

Take a look around the modern workplace, and you’ll see a great deal of change happening all around you. We’re operating in a new economic climate, we’re using innovative new technology and we’re adopting new strategies for doing work on a daily basis. A lot is evolving all at once.
The interesting question to ask is how this affects human capital management. In HCM, your job is to nurture employees and push them to be their most productive selves.
