Virgilio Cintron https://www.linkedin.com/in/vcintron/ gave a great presentation on HR metrics/data/analytics. It was very informative and he talked about how many of us go down the data rabbit hole. When the business is actually looking for an answer to a different question.
I think is also very important for startups. Sometimes we chase after the wrong metric or focus on the wrong items. Instead of being focused on building the company. I am often guilty of this myself.
We took part in the bambooHR virtual conference. They had some great speakers and great topics.
The one on how to make the employee onboarding experience strategic was especially useful.
We took course 9 of the HelloSign Digital Transformation course https://www.hellosign.com/digitalstrength It covered developing your digital transformation strategy. It covered aspects of how to influence your organization to implement a digital transformation strategy. Just three more courses and we will have completed this course. We are learning a lot of useful information in this course.
Having a reliable digital strategy is very important to the success of cavnessHR. We need to be able to prove to potential customers that their information and that of their employees will be secure with cavnessHR.
We talked about on a previous blog that Payscale will not share their API with us and how we will have to find another solution. Turns out Payscale has around 20 competitors that we did not know about. It will take some time to research these options to see the best one to provide to our customers.
We continue to prep our email lists to send out our HR for small business newsletter. What we are doing is emailing the list 3 times over a three week period asking them if they want to receive the newsletter. That way we can make sure the people on the list actually want to receive the newsletter.
Our interns from UPS have started. We are having one come up with and implement our social media strategy and one will come up and implement our marketing strategy.
We had a meeting with myself, our CTO and two of our interns who help out on the tech side. The meeting was to get a good feel for their background in coding and more stuff.
We continue to work on the redesign of the cavnessHR site and we are making some great progress in that area. The redesign of the site should be completed in a few weeks.
For one of our customers, we are researching HRIS/Payroll solutions for them.
