Business travel accounts for the majority
of your employee expenses. Travel and
expenses are intrinsically linked, so why
not manage them together?
When you combine travel and expense, some
questions are easier to answer:
• Where can I find a full picture of travel and
• Are expense claims aligned to my travel policy?
• Can I reclaim some VAT?
To connect travel and expense management,
businesses usually look for software that can
manage both processes from beginning to end.
This is commonly referred to as an integrated
solution. The results could be cost savings,
faster delivery or improved employee adoption

Improper data management of sensitive data such as employee files, time records, and payroll information has the potential to cost corporations and institutions millions each year in auditing expenses, security concerns, tax violations and legal disputes with employees.
This paper discusses how time management software can resolve the problem, and what the next steps to implementing this technology are.
Every organization strives for a workforce that is engaged, inspired, and motivated to perform at its best day in and day out. But what is the reality?
According to Gallup, only 13 percent of all employees worldwide today are engaged in their jobs — an alarming statistic given the importance of the workforce in fueling growth and meeting other key enterprise goals. Employees are typically an organization’s most vital (and expensive) asset, and when they are disengaged and/or disenfranchised, the ripple effects across the business can impact your profitability and branding.
In fact, each employee generation — and each individual — has unique needs and expectations regarding work. So how do you engage and inspire them? It requires a creative and differentiated approach that accounts for the unique characteristics and requirements of each generation.
Fortunately, new human capital management (HCM) technologies are available today that can help you optimize employee engagement across a

Managing talent and how that talent performs is a high-stakes arena that takes up a lot of time and resources. How are your competitors tackling these issues?
Every HR department is trying to find more efficient ways to provide service to employees, from answering routine requests to dealing with complaints and whistleblowing. For efficiency, employee satisfaction, and legal compliance, it’s important to track, monitor, and respond to all these employee actions. The consequences of having complaints and allegations fall through the cracks are two-fold: employees feel ignored, and lawsuits become more likely and harder to defend. As a result, many organizations are buying or building systems to manage this important tracking process.
To find out who’s doing what and what’s working in the real world, BLR conducted a Case Management Survey in February 2016.

Check out our recent survey summary in a report entitled Participation Counts! A Look at Participation-Based Safety. The survey and its accompanying report, both sponsored by eCompliance®, provide insight into how safety professionals and their companies are encouraging employees to actively participate in safety initiatives in order to promote consistently safe behaviors on the job.
The study was conducted in May of 2017 and illustrates the diverse opinions within the safety field regarding such issues as implementing behavior-based vs. participation-based programs, measuring safety participation, and management visibility into safety performance.
The survey of over 500 respondents includes such findings as:
• 15% of survey participants believe that behavior-based programs have a negative impact on safety culture, and 55% think participation-based safety is most effective.
• The number one key initiative being prioritized by respondents in the next 12 months is “Improving communica
The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done.
New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.
In recent years, it seems like technology is changing faster than it used to in decades past. As employees devour newer technologies such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices, and as they become more comfortable with solutions such as Dropbox and Skype, their demands on enterprise IT intensify. Plus, management and other decision makers are also increasing their demands on enterprise IT to provide more infrastructure with less cost and time. Unfortunately, enterprise IT organizations often don’t see much, if any, associated increases in funding to accomodate these demands.

"When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.”
The promise of unified communications (UC) is that it is supposed to increase efficiencies and make internal operations more seamless. But that only happens when it’s working properly.
According to Robin Gareiss, president and founder of Nemertes Research, “Companies devote 33% more IT staff to managing IP telephony and 31% more to UC when they don’t use monitoring tools. The tools are instrumental to identifying, isolating, and resolving performance issues—and preventing them from happening again. When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.” That’s one reason 36% more people actually use UC in large companies that use monitoring tools.
Join Robin Gareiss, president and founder, Nemertes Research and David Roberts, director of product management, Riverbed, as they explore the different approaches to monitoring UC—network probes vs endpoint telemetry—and why taking a combined approach helps you

Employees are increasingly using bring-your-own devices (BYOD) to work and accessing corporate IT resources from home. Until now, management of BYOD within IT was piecemeal, with most organizations cob¬bling together solutions that included mobile device management software, unified access suites, security, and hardware. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 takes the guesswork and integration out of BYOD security and administration, providing one point of control and management for IT organizations.
Replacing an aging desktop fleet is an important investment in your business. Faster and more reliable systems that offer the latest technology provide your employees an opportunity to be more productive with less waiting while they work.

If you’ve noticed more employees accessing the corporate network using their personally owned mobile devices, you’re not alone. Many employees are boosting their productivity by using their smartphones and tablets at work.
Gone are the days of corporate IT departments dictating the types of mobile devices that could access the network. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies, while increasing employee satisfaction and productivity, are straining corporate networks.
This white paper describes the limitations of legacy networks, especially for supporting BYOD. Understanding these limitations can pave the way for a successful BYOD management policy for campus and branch networks.
