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.

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.

Also, asking employee

The 2020 hospitality and tourism trends that will likely stay in 2021 and beyond

The COVID-19 pandemic had made an unprecedented impact on the   global economy   in 2020. The good news is the long-waited COVID-19 vaccines will   soon become available . Let’s hope that the coronavirus will disappear soon as we enter the New Year.     Looking back before we look forward   At year-end 2019, I predicted a few   2020 trends   in hospitality, retail, and tourism businesses. For example, I recommended that we should pay special attention to the following areas:      A shifting focus on food delivery, sustainable food, and quick-casual restaurants. Using AI and facial recognition in service operations.   The threats from Google, Amazon, and Airbnb as a (potential, new) giant tourism enterprise in the market.   Investors’ growing interest in boutique retail stores and hotels. Customer loyalty issues as more travel companies adopted the dynamic pricing strategy even in their frequent traveler programs.   Safety issues during travel.     Certainly, the global pandemic was not
