HR’s Top Priority? Safety and Wellbeing!

By Faith Tull, Intelex Chief People Officer

It’s overwhelming that over 2.6 million accidents* occur each year, and as an HR professional, this is a tough number to swallow because we work hard to bring in these talent individuals into our organizations.

As an HR leader, I’ve always been committed to improving workplace health and safety standards and have worked closely with many subject matter experts whose roles … Read more...

By Jeremy Milam

The secret to designing a new custom application in Intelex is breaking the process down into small steps. Let’s take a closer look at the planning aspects involved with designing a new app.

Requirements gathering

Requirements gathering is probably the most vital piece of the process. It is very important to get the application stakeholders in a room and ask some key questions.

Data/reporting outputs

Data and reporting outputs are vital to getting buy-in from stakeholders. At the end of the day, that’s what people want to see. Even at this early stage with no data in the system, you can be thinking about how … Read more...

Resilience Brings Out Our Personal and Workplace Best

Management thinker extraordinaire Adam Grant believes building resilience in children and adults is all about inspiring their inner strength by encouraging belief in personal value and worth.

It’s the old maxim that if you believe in people then perhaps they’ll believe in themselves, and by inference we’ll build a better world.  Grant, the renowned best-selling American author, top-ranked professor at Penn State University’s Wharton School of Business, and 36-year-old wunderkind, shared his thoughts on fostering resilience during an inspired interview at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.

Among Grant’s core messages is the notion that resilience ties directly to fostered personal strength and empathy towards doing for others, which in turn inspires a desire to “pay it forward.” He talked about resilience as a quality we often seek to instill in children – to help them be strong and successful in an increasingly challenging world.
