Leading into the “New Normal”

As governments around the world are under increased demands to reopen, leaders everywhere are making decisions in the face of staggering uncertainty and conflicting information. In many ways, the decisions that first closed down businesses and quarantined cities, although certainly difficult, were much easier exercises in short-term decision making and execution than those that leaders will have to make for the longer-term journey.

And now everyone is asking, what will this “new normal” look like?

Breathing Awareness and Flourishing with Awair’s Webinar Series

In this moment of discontinuity and need to forcedly reorganize our own daily activities, many of us have started reading, studying, participating in trainings – activities that until this very moment have been frequently neglected – to fill up all that time that suddenly is free.

The Key to Economic Survival: Your Hiring Practices

Just a month ago, large companies in competitive industries were seeing a high rate of job turnover. Conversely, if recruitment had stopped a few months ago, the result would have been an almost immediate labor shortage.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy faces serious challenges. But there are also possibilities — this new situation will result in a larger talent pool available for hiring in the near future. Organizations already know the key for success is to hire the best people available. Whoever is ready for that will be the winner of the labor market and remain competitive in the coming months and years.

Natural Language Processing at Hogan

The amount of text data we send out in the world is staggering. On average, there are 500 million tweets sent per day, 23 billion text messages, and 306.4 billion emails. Everything we say, every email we send, and every word on our resumes can be used to not only understand the world around us, but as clues about the individual speaking, typing, and writing. Unfortunately, text data does not fit into the traditional structured format of rows and columns. Text data is messy, unstructured, and not easily analyzed using classical statistical methods. Enter natural language processing, or NLP. NLP is a type of artificial intelligence that uses machine learning to break down, process, and quantify human language. NLP helps us understand the hidden stories within text-based data. Read More »
