HR Blog - The 5 signs of HRMS turning Grey

The strategic challenge with 3rd world emergent economies like India is that most of the global technological or commercial trends do not start here. We are rather happy to follow them or join the bandwagon and only reap the benefits. The widespread adoption of Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) is one such trend which started along with the IT revolution in India. However, like all things Indian, innovation and updation of such HRMS or HRIS products with time seems to be lagging behind the global benchmarks and best practices. Decades ago, some business leaders had the technical foresight of opting for such products. However with time, trends fade and leaders change. But huge investments in HR software make them stick. They become the irreplaceable link between the employer and the workforce. However, instead of being updated with time, some HR solutions never evolve to match the changing needs of the time. In this blog post, we pin point the 5 tell-tale warning signs of your trusted HRMS turning grey. Are you still On-premise with ERP? – Most old HR softwares came with a huge server setup located in your office premises. In most cases, it’s only accessible to your employees when they are at office. Cloud technology on the SaaS (Software-as-a-service) delivery model would make the solution accessible from anywhere, minus the cost & effort of maintaining an ERP setup. Are you still printing out forms, reports and letters? – Worldwide research by the Citigroup estimates that each sheet of wasted printer paper costs 6 to 13 cents (60 paisa to Rs.1.30 paisa), depending on the amount of ink, toner and recycling effort. Are your employees still printing documents which could be digitized and shared with all using the latest available technology?Implementing Employee Self Service through a modern HRMS brings alive the myth of a paperless office. Does your HR software still look like a 90’s video game? – Chances are that the user interface of your current HR software resembles the look of a computer running on Windows 98 safe mode. There is no easy access to the most useful features and no support for the application on smartphones or tablets that the youth brigade of your workforce are most comfortable with. Is your current HR software managing the complete employee lifecycle? – You are paying as much as a complete HR solution would cost, but only using the Attendance and Payroll feature of it. Latest HR softwares are capable of managing all routine HR activities from recruitment to resignation, while freeing up 60% of the productive hours of your HR staff. Is your current HR software’s technical support on hibernation mode? – The transition of Attendance data is not smoothly flowing into the Payroll setup. It’s throwing up frequent errors, costing extra man hours for rectification and causing employee grievance. And when you mail technical support for a quick solution, they either show SLA’s of getting back within a week or do not reply until you call in. Even if three of the five situations mentioned above are proving to be true in your case, it’s time to rethink your Human Capital Management Strategy from a technical perspective. Let alone the cost factor, which is much more rationalized that what you have paid for the last decade. We are not saying that your existing HRMS is useless and that you should immediately cancel it’s usage license in favor of a newer solution or switch to PeopleWorks. No, we are not in the habit of biting into someone else’s pie. What we want you to do is check the freshness of the stuffing inside your pie. Yes, you read it right. If the tell-tale warning signs of the trusted HR software you are currently using match the ones we found to be most prevalent, we would be happy to help.

Conceptual - 5 guidelines for an Ad-Copy team

1. KISS and then TELL – Keep it short and simple. No one wants to read long copy unless you already have him hooked and he wants To-be-ELaborated on your product. So KISS him/her first and then TELL. 2. Know the rules to obliterate them later – Keep your hook in the headline and try to headline every paragraph of long copy. Keep the call to action in body copy, unless you are promoting discount sales. Write down what you want to say first and then try saying that as creatively as you want. 3. Innovation quotient – Question yourself about the novelty of your manner of expression rather than the matter of what you are saying. Double-meanings, rhymes, alliterations, ambiguity is all-fair-on-the-internet-and-war. But what wins the bride is how relevant and customer centric you are. 4. Wear thy customer’s sole – While writing or conceptualizing a selling idea, try to think from the end-customer’s point-of-view. Find as many co-relations as you can but don’t ever try to fit products to your line. No one likes the feeling of being sold-to or feel spoilt by the clichés of free & extra. 5. Awards and Analytics – Adverti$ing is an art with the sole motive to $ell. If you take out the $, you can longer $ing. Artistic creativity might earn you awards but translating clicks & reads into revenue is a different battle. You are free to walk the thin sword edge. Just don’t cut yourself!

Informative Article - Shining Lights, Glowing Bright

If happiness was taken down from the podium of Abstractness and given a worldly form maybe it would be known as Fireworks. Thanks to the Chinese for their invention of Gunpowder, that the dream of lighting up the night sky was actualized. They still continue the tradition with entrepreneurial zeal by being the largest manufacturer and exporter of Fireworks in today’s world with even online shopping & worldwide delivery options. Black Cat Fireworks from China is one key player among the uncountable many. Fireworks are a decorative and mellowed down version of compounds which can also be used to spread fear rather than happiness. Fireworks are differentiated by where and how they perform their magic – on ground or aerial, in terms of light or with sound. However the multiple types of Aerial Fireworks prove its popularity and artistic class. Subject to much debate between traditionalists like those in the Orient and the Gadget Gurus of the West, there are twenty types of aerial fireworks. Peony is the most common type of aerial shell which bursts into a spherical ball of coloured stars without prolonged burnout. Just like the petals of a Chrysanthemum flower curl in at full bloom, the bright stars of this aerial shell have a visible trail after the explosion till burnout. There are many such other types based on minute differences of burst timing, star spacing, final shaping and the usual factors of duration and color. Dahlia, Ground Bloom Flower, Ring, Palm, Willow, Diadem and Horsetail are some of those twenty types. The ones deserving separate mention would be the likes of Spider or Crossette, for the ingenuity both in terms of colour and the after burst effect created. There exists even time delayed types of aerial fireworks like Time rain which burns slowly or burst multiple times to create custom effects of visual delight. The logic of naming such man-made shooting stars maintains its eccentric flavour with names going as specific as Bengal fire and Roman Candle, with the former burning a vivid slow burning blue flame and the latter holding multiple starry explosions within its fan shaped delayed arrangement of explosives. Even there are names like Cakes and Fishes or just some simply crazy names like Kamuro, which mean and visually depict a Boy’s haircut in Japanese. Due to man’s nature to turn every craftsmanship into an Art form, we have multiple types of aerial fireworks bringing even a momentary smile on the faces of millions world over. Whether it’s the Chinese New Year – the Diwali celebrations of the sub-continent or the crowd pullers of Disneyland – Aerial fireworks are closest we got to depicting Big Bang, maybe that’s why they are still burning bright.

Content Marketing - Piano Tuning Houston

Any string instrument produces its characteristic sound only when it is acted upon by an external force like a hammer or a plucking finger or the bow. All these three types of force vibrate the string to a certain frequency to produce sound. The sound is reverberated by the enclosed wooden space in the instrument. However moisture variations of the seasons swell or shrink this space. For pianos in the humid subtropical climate of Houston that’s where Piano Tuning Houston comes in.

There are different types of pianos which vary in size and structure. The two main types are Vertical Pianos and Grand Pianos with further classifications of these two categories based on size. Tuning the odd 216 to 250 strings of any average piano is not something which you can achieve only by learning to play. It takes years to master and most importantly what matters is the psycho-acoustic expertise that one gathers with years of experience. Piano Tuning Houston is the home of such talented professionals who can just switch on those off notes a twist of their forks. Hope your tune never goes out, but in case it does let them know.

But now with the advent of Online Casinos this has changed altogether. The only two things which you need to play Online Casinos is an Internet Connection and a PC or just even a Palmtop. This situation creates a big advantage for Online Casinos which is that they can be played whenever you want to play it irrespective of wherever you are. There are a few more Advantages which you might be interested in knowing. The Internet has totally eliminated the Distance Barrier in the matter of playing in casinos. Now irrespective of the physical location of the casino you can play in it just by the help of a few mouse clicks. The only factor on which this online play depends is your internet speed. The problems of traveling to far away casinos and even returning (late) from them, no longer exist. Often in the case of real casinos you are trapped in cheap and low quality casinos just because they are closer to your home. But for Online Casinos one can pick from a multitude of choice of the best casinos and play at the desired ones only. The other things which online casinos provide to their customers are tempting Bonuses and free chips in order to retain existing Customers and attract new ones. The different kinds of bonuses provided by online casinos to their customers are Sign-up Bonus, Cash- back Bonus, No deposit Bonus and Deposit Matching Bonus.

The Holiday Season Cheat-sheet for the Online Musician

As we end 2016 with so many surprises like PPAP, we have curated this article with trends that transformed into tactics in the current music industry. Read on to exactly know how to identify your essentials and which to eliminate. Ensure that you optimize your Online Presence to boost Online Sales with a website which has: 1. An unique story to tell about your work 2. Embedded Video for richer & longer audience engagement 3. A mailing list sign-up to build/boost your subscriber-base 4. A digital press kit to facilitate information for those who could help with gaining exposure 5. A festive Sale with limited-period pricing on your music & merchandise with discount codes sent as gifts Some auteurs still expect that their work will solely gain traction based on how good it is. Those are the dinosaurs who think Social Media is only for bragging. However, if you dare to dig deeper beyond the evils & clichés of the fastest growing Virtual Medium, you discover hacks like these: 1. Don’t just make page on Facebook to share your YouTube videos or gig pics. Rather do these… or just these: i. Use the Page Insights tool to know your audience base inside out. Your worries about ‘where to find audience’ and ‘what could actually work’ would be spelled out by DATA no one could DENY. ii. Use Facebook LIVE to its full potential while also maintaining the rarity of such occasions. 2. The thousands of verified musician Twitteratis rather use it for: i. Engaging in meaningful conversations & topics with unique #Hashtags while finding a new audience as a bonus ii. Live-tweeting events to keep the followers feeling updated and close to heart 3. Instagram is not a ‘me-too’ version of Flickr or Tumblr or any such photo sharing website. A recent Nielsen study has revealed that Instagram users spend 42% more money than the general populous and 90% of them stream music. Most of these users are regulars at live events & concerts and are twice as likely to pay for it. So the next time you wonder why & what to click & post with a dozen hashtags, try these for a change: i. Shots inside the studio of either rehearsals or recording and of course some proof of the fun behind the scene, like those green room antics ii. Touristy images on the road while touring for gigs iii. Glimpses of the hard work which goes into writing lyrics and composing dilemmas 4. YouTube being the 2nd largest search engine makes it indispensable for both solo musicians and bands. It was not long ago that we had curated the 4 Ways Musicians Can Make Money Through YouTube. However, for the Holiday season we saved these Spring Cleaning strategies: i. Always optimize your videos for search with unique tags, titles & descriptions. ii. Enable Channel Recommendations for new users to stumble upon your work after watching something related. iii. As the video plays, lure viewers with Click-bait annotations to your other videos or any specific landing page.

7 Quick tips for anyone trying to eat Healthy

So you’ve finally felt the pinch. Isn’t it? But the difference between Karma and Junk food is that, the former is irreversible and the latter is well… in your hands till you decide to read & follow these tips for eating healthy. 1. Eat a rainbow everyday Fruits & veggies are low in calorie but packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Try to sneak veggies, especially greens into your 3 main meals. Don’t buy juices in the name of fruits. Just keep a fruit-basket full & handy. 2. Shop smart Don’t go shopping when hungry to avoid picking up junk food. Also choose fresh or frozen over canned stuff. More importantly avoid processed or artificial stuff that is not grown. Choose whole grains like brown rice, millet, quinoa and oatmeal for healthy carbs. 3. Plan beforehand You can avoid junk food only if you have healthier options available. For that, you need to plan at least a day or week before. Keep healthy options like baked veggies, hard-boiled eggs or even mini-meatloaves in the most visible part of the fridge for takeaway. 4. Do-It-Yourself Fix your meals yourself to save money and the chances of unhealthy carbs ruining your balanced diet. Readymade food is always high on salt, sugar, saturated fat & processed stuff. Somehow you need to find time to cook and stop eating out, except when on a date with a Bond or a Jolie. 5. Snack wisely You consume most of the junk food while snacking. Instead of opening a bag of chips, keep a stash of dates & nuts or whole fruits, granola bars or even yogurt to fend off the hunger pangs till your next meal. Try quenching your eternal thirst for fizzy drinks with water and ‘root canal’ your sweet tooth. 6. Timed meals Don’t just eat when you’re hungry. Decide and stick to 3 fixed meal times to replenish your body. It’s not a car, which you refuel anytime the tank is empty. If needed divide your meals into smaller portions for every 5th hour to curb hunger and stabilize sugar levels. 7. Indulge truly Occasionally If a cute Cupcake calls you, don’t miss out. But try being honest with your goals of eating healthy. Don’t console yourself with that tub of ice cream or box of cookies after a sad or tiring day. Make it a rule to indulge in sugary or alcoholic treats only once a week while socializing outside.

Case study on Madhu Infotech

Customer Profile As one of the leading IT equipment Sales & rental companies, Madhu Infotech needed to find an affordable human resource management tool. They had already felt what wonders process automation held in store as their Financial resource management or Payroll was transformed by Effipay. Problems Before PeopleWorks was implemented, the primary complications were: • All employee data in excel sheets without any system for quick referencing, in spite of this practice being time-consuming and laborious to the extent of being boring. • Real time updates on company policy/events/compliance needs was impossible • The absence of any centralized & automated Leave management system • The absence of a systematic channel to raise any kind of job-related query by the employee • Lack of any operational Exit formality to critically gauge & analyse the causes of attrition Solutions The success story was written, dramatized & finally enacted as if in five acts, which were as follows: a. Project Kick-Off Meeting A GAP Analysis was performed between the Client Company’s existing HR policy and PeopleWorks’ supported features. This is where the initial interaction started as the Milestone Plan was formulated and shared with the client. b. Requirements Gathering The GAPs exposed in the previous step were plugged-in by carefully consulting the PeopleWorks configuration workbook and the Client in tandem. Each deficit or gap was tackled module wise. The modules implemented for Madhu Infotech were: • Leave Management System • Nurture & Manage • Separation • Query resolution & Survey c. Configuration The data collected in the previous step through standard templates were imported into the system without manual interference ensuring seamless movement of data. TSo the vast scope of Leave application & approval, the innumerable categories of Employee data, the unforeseen reasons & hassles of Separation and the infinite scenarios of employee grievance were all integrated into the relational logic of this Saas based Cloud Solution based on ASP.NET MVC and C#. d. User Acceptance Test Testing the cloud based solution, for possible bugs is one major hurdle in the implementation process. So it was tested at both ends, by the PeopleWorks Testing team and the Client to ensure that all configurations, data, modules, relational logics, etc are in sync to deliver only the superlative. e. Go live & Training Ten of the Client’s brightest talents including their HR were trained under the ‘Train the trainer’ program, so that they could easily educate their colleagues about how to use the Cloud based Employee life-cycle Management. The End Result: “A very methodical yet quick implementation of PeopleWorks amazed us with our folks gaining access to the user-friendly Cloud Solution in just 5 working days after data submission. Their subsequent support is highly commendable too. Think Ahead. Think PeopleWorks.” - HR Head, Madhu Infotech

Ketogenic diet 101: A beginner’s guide

Would you be surprised to know that the ketogenic diet was originally a scientific therapy to cure epilepsy? It was supposed to put the body in metabolic state called ketosis to minimize convulsions. However with the invention of anticonvulsant drugs it was hailed as the best way to lose weight by many. Definition A diet that is extremely low in carbohydrates and very high in fats is called a ketogenic diet. It induces a metabolic state called ketosis in which, the body becomes super-efficient in burning fat for energy in the absence of carbs. Thus, exercises are a must if you’re on Ketogenic diet weight loss and desperately want to show off your keto diet results. During ketosis, the body also stores and breakdown fats in the liver as ketones that energize the brain. Types There are mainly 4 types of Ketogenic diet, which are: 1.
