Face it, we all love a good TED Talk. While they’ve become somewhat of a cliche in the professional world, akin to motivational quotes from Richard Branson or Wolf of Wall Street memes, they continue to fascinate viewers (this author included).
We’re excited to host an all-star lineup of motivational speakers, thought leaders, and industry experts at HR Redefined 2019. With the conference just a few short weeks away, we wanted to highlight some of the talented speakers you’ll soon see on the HRR stage.

Today, April 2, 2019 is Equal Pay Day in the United States. Last year, it was on April 10. In 2017, it was April 4. Why does the date change each year? Well, Equal Pay Day is held every year on the day that women have to work until they earn the income that men earned in the prior calendar year. In other words, women had to work from January 1, 2018 until April 2, 2019 (today) to earn what men earned in the calendar year of 2018.

I joined MM.LaFleur -- a clothing brand, styling service and community for professional women—as a People Operations Manager in May 2017. Four years after the company was founded, we were no longer a tiny startup—we had more than 50 employees, and were growing rapidly.

HR teams have a lot on their plates. That’s why it’s important to get the most out your HR technology and choose a human resources information system (HRIS) that can keep up with your growing company. While implementing an HRIS at your company is a great way to streamline administrative work, there is one tool in particular that can revolutionize how you prioritize your day: workflows. Workflows let employees update their own information, assigning approvers, and notifying anyone affected by the changes, so you can track progress and see changes implemented in real time.

April has arrived. It’s that transitional month when you both can’t believe how fast Q1 flew by, yet don’t understand how it’s been the longest winter in history. Thankfully, the second quarter of the year includes the start of summer and conference season. Situated after the ups and downs of tax season and before the craze of open enrollment, it’s tempting to relax a bit during Q2. However, there are some key dates to keep in mind before the busy season picks back up.
