Our fans go beyond our clients and employees. They just don’t know it yet.
Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are all embedded into American popular culture. And while most people are spending time planning their meals and preparing their shopping strategies, or checking out the parades and football games on TV, there are others that are focusing on another very important part of the holiday season: giving back.
The holiday season is the time of year where charitable giving comes into focus. Launched in 2012, Giving Tuesday, observed the day after Cyber Monday, has become a movement for celebrating and supporting philanthropy, giving back in both service and financial donations. The spirit of Giving Tuesday, and the spirit of philanthropy and giving back, is part of our culture at HNM Systems.
As a hiring manager in the technology industry, you often receive hundreds of candidates with fancy degrees, prestige and skill keywords, yet the hardest part is finding the most qualified candidate.
As a manager you focus on finding someone with the right skills, culture fit, future performance and retention, which can be hard to find on a resume.

Data analytics has been a major part of 2018. In the past, we discussed 10 Ways Data Analytics Can Improve Your Company, so now we’d like to see how data analytics will change in the coming year.
“Analytics has become a great way of finding the best talent and improving processes within recruitment as well as the hiring process,” said Kristin Schaer, HNM Systems’ Managing Director. “We are now able to find great candidates using new tools such as behavioral and cognitive assessments and interview results. By analyzing the behavioral drives of employees and organizations we can find the factors of behavior and why employees stay or leave an organization.”
Here are 4 ways that data analytics are expected to change in 2019, and how your company can use it to continue growing.
- Privacy Concerns. It will continue growing as a major issue within data analytics. In May 2018, the European Union passed new data protection rules. It is expected for more countries to continue adding regulations and fines to protect data and be transparent about data collection. Make sure that you are being transparent about which data is being collected from your website.
- Competition based in Customer Experience. In the past, companies have competed in price, quality, services, etc. but now they will be competing on customer experience. Using data analytics in this capacity can help your company track and predict consumer behavior.
- Customized Analytics. Data analytics are moving away from data analytics dashboards that have limited functionality and standard sets of metrics, which are used to collect large amounts of data. Companies are turning toward embedded analytics dashboards, which deliver metrics and insights based on user queries. This will give you a much more detailed analysis.
- Shortage of Data Analyzers Worsens. The field of data analytics is growing at a faster pace than there are people joining the workforce. This has caused delays in the development of more data analytics. This expected to give way for more self-service analytics tools to account for the labor deficiency.
