#HRTechChat: 3Sixty Insights Shares its Takeaways from the HR Technology Conference & Expo

For those of you who don’t know, Jen Dole has joined the team at 3Sixty Insights as director and principal analyst to dive deep into talent management. Jen and I go back a little bit. The week before last, at HR Technology Conference & Expo, was the first time we saw each other face to face since the first time she and I met. When was that? It was when we were both at Cornerstone.

Health and Wellbeing Have a Big Impact on Careers

According to the Women @ Work 2022 by Deloitte, a survey of 5,000 women across 10 countries, more than half of the women are more stressed than a year ago. In addition, 46% of the women surveyed feel burned out.  This widespread burnout fueled by rising stress levels is worrying.   Burnout has become a common problem in today’s society and workplaces. We are constantly being bombarded with more information and new technologies, which has led to an “always on” culture. This has caused many people to feel overwhelmed and stressed out. The constant pressure to be productive can take its toll on our mental and physical health, leading to burnout.    So what can we do to address this issue? While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, […]
