Tomorrow marks the first day of 2016. It’s a time to reflect, refresh and restart. While you may not be one to make New Year’s resolutions in your personal life, chances are you will set professional goals and objectives, particularly if you manage others. If you are an HR professional, you also may be responsible for helping establish corporate goals from which individual contributors can develop their specific goals.New Year Resolutions

In the New Year’s Eve party spirit, we don’t want to be left out so, from all of us at PeopleStrategy, here are some goals we think you can definitely achieve in 2016:

De-clutter: it’s time to get rid of the piles of paper on your desk

Simplify: it’s time to streamline administrative tasks

Focus: it’s time to free up time for what you really want to be doing and stop wasting time answering questions, pushing paper and putting out fires

Contribute: it’s time to get strategic and stop being viewed as an administrative function

Smile: it’s time to love your job

What’s great about our list is that one piece of technology can help you attain each of these goals. We’ll give you a hint – it’s an acronym that starts with the letter “H.” If you need more help figuring out what technology we are subtlety (ok, maybe not) plugging, give us a call or check out the rest of our website.

From all of us at PeopleStrategy, we wish you a happy, healthy and successful 2016.
