There’s never been a better time to be a small business owner. Start-ups are booming, and a 2012 study showed that 12% of American adults started or began running a new business during the previous year. Technology — from e-commerce to social media to mobile — plays a large part in start-up growth, giving business owners more opportunities to grow their brand and expand their customer base. Technology also enables small business to innovate faster and more effectively than before, and can unshackle business owners from the need for costly brick-and-mortar storefronts.

Your Human Resources department is in a tough spot, no really, you may not think so, but they are. In addition to managing salary and benefits, doing all the hiring (and the occasional unfortunate termination), and administering performance reviews, they also have to play mediator. The HR department can be the mediator between employees, between a supervisor and a direct report, and even between the company and its staff. There’s a lot on their plate, and for this reason, your HR team would like you to keep a few things in mind.
They’re here to help
If you think of your HR department as nothing more than some well-intentioned folks who sit upstairs, process your paycheck, and make you watch office sensitivity videos once a year, then you’re not taking full advantage of one of the most versatile resources your company has to offer. Whether it’s managing your 401(k), getting additional training and development, or just getting a clearer understanding of your career path, Human Resources is happy to help.

We wanted to end Nurses Week on a birthday wish to the woman that founded what we now as modern nursing Florence Nightingale
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, her birthday. All week we’ve featured nurses from the military to case management to nurses that volunteer and teach. We’ve also featured 2 nurses that blog regularly. They taught us a thing or two on how the medical field is using technology for patient care and what is happening with high-tech coding practices.
So, Happy Birthday Flo and thank you for paving the way for the exemplary nurses that take care of our country!
So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself.
~ Florence Nightingale
