Too often companies do not pay enough attention to cost control until they run out of cash. By then it’s too late to take the actions necessary to avoid major problems. 

Anyone who has ever tried to raise capital knows that the absolute worst time to get cash from banks or other funding sources is when you desperately need it. The most likely result of a severe cash shortfall without some advanced notice and no access to additional capital is failure.

The pressure to transform your business to integrate digital or to keep up with the competition or to sustain market share is placing the spotlight on organizations execution capabilities. An organization needs both the ability to craft the strategy and the skill to execute it but most do not have it. This is reflected in that more strategy executions fail than succeed, see Bridges research for more details.

Anyone who manages people in today’s challenging world knows that it doesn’t get easier – just more complicated and, for that matter, more interesting.  The Big Book of HR has been revised and expanded to reflect some of the new realities leaders and managers face.  The book is filled with information on topics ranging from hiring to firing and everything in between including engagement, retention, total rewards, flexibility, performance management, employee development, risk management and so much more. The following are some key insights taken from this book.

Data. We hear repeatedly that data is critical to decision-making. This past week my company, Cynthia Kay and Company, partnered with the National Small Business Association on the 2017 Small Business Workforce and Labor Survey. I was particularly interested in sponsoring this survey because as the owner of a service business, my workforce is key to its success. And, we all know that there are a lot of challenges that we face that public policy and partnerships with educational institutions will either give us some relief or make it more difficult for us to be job creators.

Labor markets are as tight. Talent wars are in full regalia and you’re top employee just gave you the “Hey, boss, can I talk to you for a minute” request, as they lean in your office, holding themselves by one hand behind your door frame. You know what’s coming: They are resigning.

Yep, the person says they have another offer to join a different company. All the standard clichés, reasons and accolades for you and organization are delivered, but, in the end “...it’s time I leave here” is the final appeal.
