Is Your Business on YouTube Already?

Courtney Rubin at Inc.com reported that YouTube now receives 2 billion hits a day, which doubles the number of people who watch ABC, CBS, and NBC combined and doubles the number of hits on YouTube recorded in October. Being visible on YouTube becomes as important as on Facebook and Twitter.

Although nobody wants to watch a poor quality or boring videos online, a YouTube video does not need to be “perfect” or “professional.” In my opinions, being SHORT, FUN, and REAL is the key. Different from TV viewers, who may stay in front of “the box” for 5 hours a day, YouTube viewers only spend 15 minutes on the site daily. A 2 to 3 minute video is probably how much time most people can handle for each video. If I am a viewer, I only want to share the video that is fun, real, and possibly useful to the recipients, no matter if I use e-mails, Facebook, or Twitter. Oh, did I mention the importance of making sure the video is saved with the right "keywords" that are searchable on YouTube, Bing, Google, and Yahoo? What do you think?

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

How Covid-19 will change the HR department? (by Vivian Tan)

With the current pandemic happening, many businesses are having a hard time. It is hard for them to maintain to pay all their employees, and many things have changed on how companies are running during Covid-19. Because of this virus, employees work from home and might lack the motivation to finish their tasks. Many businesses shut their doors infinitely and file for bankruptcy because it is hard to pay their employees, and there are not many businesses coming in. In the hospitality industry, the HR department must create policies and answer questions from the outbreak. It is also essential that they communicate with workers for any updates and make sure that it does not affect their daily operations.     When it comes to covid-19 concerns, the HR department should communicate with the employees for any updates on the virus, such as informing employees about policies, personal hygiene, posting signs around the workplace about symptoms of the virus, and wear masks. Also, asking employee

How concerning is it when contactless self-service pushes more people out of work?

COVID-19 has accelerated a few   foreseeable changes   that the service industry expected for the future. For example, more consumers want   delivery service   since the pandemic hit in March. Restaurants, hotels, airlines, retailers, and shopping malls have extended their current   contactless self-service   offerings through mobile apps, kiosks, facial recognition, and   palm recognition   technologies.     To embrace the growing demand for delivery and contactless self-service, many fast-food chains also introduced   new restaurant designs ,   featuring double- or triple-drive-thru lanes, conveyor belt delivery, and food lockers for pick-up orders. In Chipotle’s case, its new digital-only restaurant focuses on delivery and pick-up services solely with no dining rooms.     Machines are replacing humans in the workplace even before the pandemic   Machines and robots are capable of doing a wide range of service jobs for humans. To name a few examples, restaurants and hotels can now   u
