3 WAYS TO GET YOUR HR TECH SOLUTION INTO 2023 BUDGETS
leapgen
July 18, 2022
Organizations are planning their 2023 HR technology budgets. As we discussed in the Lume last month, big, one-time technology investments are no longer top priority, but that doesn’t mean they’re spending less. They’re spending differently – and optimization trumps big buys.

Transforming Workforce Experience: Phase 0 to Phase Next
LinkedIn
June 17, 2019
I was scheduled to deliver a keynote to Oracle’s HCM User Group (OHUG) Annual Conference in Fort Worth, TX, last week. I’ve been traveling all over the world, plane hopping from Sydney to Singapore, from Brussels to London. But last week, I could not get from LAX to DFW. Mother Nature doesn’t care about keynotes and schedules and such.

A Founders Story: The 'L'​ in Leapgen
LinkedIn
February 14, 2019
I'm the co-founder of Leapgen. The name we chose for our company isn't a casual mashup of words. 'Leap' in Leapgen stands for Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof. You don't hear these words often in corporate values and mission statements - really at all in business. We should; it's truly important in the world we live in today. We're doing business, running organizations, providing services in a time when our talent has an opportunity to choose where they work, in a world where any of us can choose to start a company overnight, at a time when we tune into news channels and routinely witness the opposite of love.

Frictionless Workforce Experience - First Global Survey EVER!
linkedin
September 15, 2017
We live in an environment today that is oftentimes referred to as the “experience economy”. Simply put, our expectations are based on holistic end-to-end experiences; no longer just a product, a service or a feature. Because we are surrounded by experiences each day combined with the fact that our audience for HR and workforce technology has been flipped 180 degrees on its head over the last 10 years, our role has changed and is changing faster than ever.

Introducing LeapAcademy! Reinventing the HRIS and Workforce Technology Profession One Learner at a Time!
linkedin
February 09, 2017
Change is happening at a faster pace than most enterprises can handle on their own. Name one aspect of your business that isn’t being touched by digital transformation [or should be touched]. This includes rules, processes and tools that have been put into place to engage, serve and manage the workforce. Change is going to happen whether HR and IT leaders pursue it or not; the successful ones won’t run away from change. They’ll embrace it. Those who do not will not survive, much less thrive. The survival rate for businesses that fail to delight customers is approaching zero." I would argue - it's the same for HR departments.

Why LeapGen? Why Now?
linkedin
January 11, 2017
Today marks an exciting day for me as my journey working in the HR/workforce technology space continues. After spending the last 25 years focused on helping organizations - both enterprises and vendors - stay current as technology has evolved, we have reached a point where the small incremental steps we have taken to “keep the lights on” and keep up with our peers in benchmarks are no longer enough. We must focus on how to take a LEAP forward to deliver a personalized approach to HR/workforce solutions, seizing on the digital disruption that is happening all around us.

Consumerization of Business Software - Our Time Is Now!
linkedin
October 21, 2016
Business software is the core of revolution and development in any organization around the world. Digital Transformation initiatives are at a record high (think Y2K all over again) and the opportunity to rethink and leverage business software like never before is now. Before the year 2000, most of the software applications used in big companies were just stuck. Though the software was rich in various features, only a few users and the developers knew how to use it. Because of this, much business software has gotten a bad rap inside organizations with employees, managers and executives.
