Mid-market HR today is being asked to be a business partner in areas that range from compliance to employee engagement. They need to be able to connect the dots among various sources of employee data to deliver better-informed business decisions to help achieve strategic goals.
Connecting those dots and delivering those results demands more HR firepower and greater data visibility than the manual or homegrown processes and systems often used by mid-market organizations can deliver. On the other hand, most mid-market companies aren’t ready for the intricacies or expense of human capital management (HCM) systems designed for enterprise-level organizations.
The answer for forward-thinking HR leaders who want to boost their team’s capabilities and play a greater role in their company’s future is having core HR functionality designed into an integrated benefits administration solution.

• The tools they need to better handle their administrative work
• The data and analytics necessary to better coordinate programs and more confidently make strategic decisions
• A user experience that makes life easier for HR and employees

The rise of the application programming interface (API) represents a business opportunity and a technical challenge. For business leaders, APIs present the opportunity to open new revenue streams and maximize customer value. But enterprise architects are the ones charged with creating the APIs that make backend systems available for reuse in new Web and mobile apps.
It is vital that all stakeholders understand that the business goals and technical challenges of an API program are intimately related. Program managers must take responsibility for clearly communicating the key business goals of a proposed API to the architects who will actually build the interface.
This eBook outlines best practices for designing results-focused APIs that will form the cornerstone of your API program’s success.

The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace from both technology and business perspectives. New technologies are
dramatically improving healthcare, from diagnostic imaging and scanning tools to the digitization of medical records. From
the business side, the industry continues to consolidate, with metropolitan or regional medical providers absorbing local
clinics and rural practices, and large retailers acquiring pharmacies, minute clinics, and urgent care facilities. As a result,
many healthcare companies are now competing with retailers for business.
This competition may be good for the customers (i.e., the patients) who are demanding higher levels of care and a better
overall experience. This could mean better access to new diagnostic tests, test results, and specialists who may be located
far from the patient’s location. Healthcare providers need to work toward providing the same care and experience to
customers in their main facilities as they do in distributed clinics, ur
For many companies, language barriers increase as business
globalization becomes the norm rather than the exception.
Perhaps a call center agent cannot handle customer contact
in an unfamiliar language. Or a manager travels to a face-toface
meeting only to sit across a conference table from clients
wanting to speak in their own native language. Even within
your organization, teams across global geographies must
collaborate to achieve collective goals, but language barriers
often stand in their way.
Meanwhile, HR leaders are tasked with recruiting and
retaining top talent and L&D managers must align programs
with business goals. Each of these scenarios and areas of
responsibility have something in common: A clear need for
company-sponsored training to develop employees’ language
proficiency so they can engage successfully with colleagues
and customers anywhere.
Thousands of learners were surveyed about the impact of
language training with Rosetta Stone® business solutions.1
When augmenting the benefits package
for your organization, it’s natural to focus
on traditional perks that employees have come to
expect: PTO, health insurance, and maybe a tuition
assistance credit here or there. But if you’re looking
for creative and effective ways to stimulate
employee engagement while also driving business
results, you’ll want to consider the powerful impact
of offering language-learning opportunities.
Why language learning? It offers immediate and
long-term benefits to both employees and employers.
Research shows that organizations that offer access
to language learning see an increase in employee
engagement factors like loyalty, morale, and
productivity, which in turn boosts business performance
factors such as customer satisfaction
and internal communications.
Where’s the connection? And how can you reproduce
these benefits within your organization? This
playbook offers a deeper look at why language
learning has such a positive influence on employee
