“Work a short time, rest well, and learn a lot.” That’s what Microsoft Japan CEO Takuya Hirano noted on the company’s official website after successfully rolling out their Work Life Choice Challenge 2019. The firm has been making headlines ever since they offered 2,300 employees 3-day weekends for a month to experiment and analyze the impact of a 4-day work week on bringing about a positive work culture.

Our Content Specialist told me not to start most of my write-ups with Dilbert so I left Dilbert out of Dilbert. While I won on a meta technicality with this one, a lot of organizations might not when it comes to their recognition charters. Their technicalities are archaic rewards and recognition platforms, mandates for managers and departments, and gatherings that lose their meaning.

I have been a part of the HR function for over a decade now. In the larger scheme of things, it doesn’t sound like much but believe me, empires have risen and fallen in littler times. I was with nearbuy.com the first time I heard about inFeedo. There was some buzz around the company as an idea generation platform but that was it.
Much like the sweltering heat that refuses to subside, the team at inFeedo has been persistent, going all in in the last couple of months to address feedback you’ve shared overtime on Amber’s dashboard. The result? Two kickass dashboard feature upgrades that are guaranteed to blow your mind!
About 2 months ago, the team at inFeedo assembled for our mid-quarter checkpoint. Among the many questions raised, one that didn’t see immediate resolution was whether we should be calling the organizations we serve ‘clients’ or ‘customers’.
One Monday morning, right when the coffee machine was booting up, our alert and monitoring system went way out of whack! Amber’s systems were almost at the brink of crashing. Unlike us, she doesn’t take the weekends off and high performers like her are always at the risk of burning out.
