Businesses and organizations are challenged daily to do more, plan more, and accomplish more tasks. Psychologists spend hours studying ways to improve daily workflow, and some of what they’ve found is surprising.
Whether you’re just starting your HR career, looking to network with other professionals, seeking a professional certification, or need an outside source for industry trends, joining an established HR association or organization is a great way to expand your exposure to the field.
As HR pros, not only are you concerned with making sure employee paychecks hit, you’re also thinking ahead. Helping employees save for their futures—largely in the form of 401(k)—has become an essential ingredient in benefit packages.
Everyone wants to know how their company stacks up, especially HR. With unemployment at historic lows, the race to attract and retain talent has never been more competitive.
Looking for an edge? The Namely team is thrilled to announce our new Benchmarking Package, empowering you to gain deeper insight into employee turnover, internal mobility, diversity, and more—all presented alongside data from companies just like yours. As part of the offering, Namely clients receive a tailor-made quarterly report on the state of their business.
Want to repurpose the quarterly report for your next board presentation? That’s the idea. It’s like having an entire team of data scientists at your disposal, even if you’re just an HR team of one.

Employers feel pressure to offer the most enticing combination of compensation, benefits, and company culture to attract (and retain) top talent. As a result, the candidate experience is more important than ever.
Taking time off is an important way to recharge, but going back to the office after a vacation can be an adjustment. Ideally, you tied up loose ends prior to leaving to avoid returning to an unmanageable work pile.

If you're overwhelmed, take a deep breath and start with these five tips to help you through the post-vacation workload.
