Proper Whistleblowing Mechanisms are a Requirement. Just Ask Uber.

CAT: Employee Engagement  

Uber is not a stranger to the headlines – positive and negative. Illegal car hires in Hong Kong, union bid blocking in Seattle, the search for a second executive, and internal discrimination and harassment allegations, Uber appears to be struggling with employee and customer challenges – perhaps unsurprisingly given its rapid, global growth. While customer experience receives most of the attention, employee engagement and customer experience are two sides of the same coin. It comes down to how a business engages with and manages its relationships with people, leveraging their insight to deliver better experiences on both sides. And, in doing so, improve the method in which they operate their business.

Why Employee Engagement is Fundamentally Changing

CAT: Employee Engagement  

The increasingly complex problem sets and the dependency of solutions on relationships between people have given rise to a new era of business technologythe Internet of People.

CAT: Employee Engagement  

It is a known truth that the success of any project, technical or otherwise, lies in its implementation. The translation from idea into reality is a crucial phase; one that holds the power to derail a plan entirely or ensure a great success.

What is the key to a successful implementation phase? Do enterprise technology solutions require a different approach? Behind any piece of technology, especially great enterprise technology solutions, is a team. A team of technical programmers, developers and consultants that translate ideas into reality in very tangible terms. These people, who in many ways are shaping the way technology could impact our lives, matter; their insights and technology feedback matter.
