Have a Happier New Year - Recognizing What Makes You Successful

Have a Happier New Year - Recognizing What Makes You Successful

| Kudos Superstars

It is that time of year again where we reflect on the past and look forward to the new. The economy is improving, allowing organizations to refocus their attentions on growing their companies and getting back on their feet after several difficult years.

One of the causalities for many businesses during the last few years has been a loss of trust and connection with their teams. Every company had to dig deep and adjust to their circumstances, and that required asking a lot of their people. Downsizing, taking on more responsibilities, and doing more with less were all common themes. Now that things are improving, businesses are turning their attention back to re-building their cultures, re-visiting their values, and finding ways to re-engage their team.

Stay Interviews

Stay Interviews

So, here at Kudos we thought we’d try something a little different about our semi-annual performance reviews. 

We decided to try out the concept of stay interviews. Are you familiar? Stay interviews, as opposed to exit interviews (which I’m sure you’ve all heard of) aim to engage and retain your personnel by getting their thoughts, ideas and opinions while they are still employees, rather than when they’re on their way out. It’s a chance to engage in two-way conversation and feedback about the work they’re doing for you and the environment, culture and tasks of their everyday life at your company.

HR 101: Stop, Look and Listen

HR 101: Stop, Look and Listen

| Kudos Superstars

I’ve been with Kudos for the past five months, working to develop and document their HR polices procedures and set up their systems. My professional background is a mix of technical recruiting and HR in the tech space. Away from work, I spend my time as a dance teacher and choreographer. When approached by Kudos, I was excited about the opportunity to work with a company that was HR-centric, that aligned with my beliefs and that every day, worked to make the workplace better for others, while practicing what they preach right here at home.
