Employee recognition is more than an HR program—it has a profound impact on an organization’s workplaceculture and bottom line.
Employee recognition has a strong influence on an organization’s workplace culture. Research on 10,000 employees in 12 countries shows that organizations who have a great culture are:
• 54% more likely to have employees that are Promoters on the standard NPS scale
• 53% more likely to have highly engaged employees
• 29% more likely to have employees innovating and performing great work
• 27% more likely to have increased in revenuelast year
• 25% more likely to have growth in team size in the last year1
By creating a great workplace culture employees want to engage with, you’ll see an improvement in business results. Employee recognition touches every aspect of your company culture and your employee experience—from recruiting, to engagement, productivity, innovation, and retention.
In reality, many applications are far from cloud ready, and some never will be. But almost every new application will be cloud enabled. So how do you evolve your data center into a private cloud and drive hybrid IT by connecting to public clouds, yet still cater for the needs of your legacy software? To try and understand the path to the cloud in greater detail, we’ve created this Infobrief from an extended interview conducted by the team at DatacenterDynamics with Juniper Networks’ Andy Ingram, the Global Vice President for Data Center and Cloud.
Teamwork: In today’s workplace, it’s the new normal.
Organizations of nearly all sizes and industries find that activating high-performance teams can deliver dramatic results. These teams, unlike those of the recent past, prominently include people from outside the organization, such as contractors, suppliers, and consultants as well as colleagues in disparate locations.
Read this Harvard Business Review study to learn how your organization can respond to todays collaboration challenges:
Integrating workers who might be telecommuting or working flexible hours.
Reacting to new business drivers such as speed to market, mobility, and globalization.
Present collaboration tools that fall short on supporting the depth, pace, and style of teamwork now required to remain competitive.

Year after year, studies show that businesses with higher engagement also have higher performance, and vice versa. The
goals of high engagement and high performance are not mutually exclusive; they are mutually dependent. A team of
employees works at its optimum when management focuses on employee engagement while remaining performance oriented.
FRONTEO provides end-to-end project management, litigation consulting and eDiscovery solutions for a global base of law firms and corporations. To meet customers’ time-critical information needs, Chief Operating Officer David Wilner, requires connectivity and data center solutions that can handle hundreds of terabytes of data—reliably and at top speeds.
That’s why, by 2013, Wilner could no longer tolerate the reliability issues he was having with the company’s previous network provider. In search of a better partner, Wilner’s team chose Spectrum Enterprise. Unlike other providers who, Wilner felt, take little accountability for network reliability, he appreciated that— same as FRONTEO itself—Spectrum Enterprise offered a true end-to-end solution.

you hit a big goal and your team had a party to celebrate. Or maybe your team threw a baby shower or took a

think about your work experiences, but you probably consider a number of other moments as well.
The employee experience isn’t just one thing — it’s the sum of many different experiences across our relationships, our

Digital transformation will fail without a commitment to automation - what AHEAD

configurations, and set up and tear down environments much faster than ever before.
Of course, no one should automate for the sake of automating, or to simply be ahead of the curve. But while not every
