Our weekly WebMingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry! It has truly redefined how people get information about vendors, trends and really anything related to HR technology.
So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.
The 55-minute WebMingle on January 14th, the 49th in our WebMingle series, featured Morne Swart, Vice-President of Product Management for CyberShift. Morne is very passionate and knowledgeable about Workforce Management, Time & Attendance, Scheduling, and Expense Management. We touched on a bunch of issues related to all of that including:
- Importance of absence management in today’s economy
- Direct and Indirect costs associated with absenteeism
- Automating absence management to mitigate risks with compliance
- Trends in mobile workforce including business challenges
- …and so much more
