Efficiency vs. Effectiveness – Can You Have Both?

There is an age-old battle between what we think needs to be done and how we think we should do it. 

An efficient person can do things quickly and well, but how effective are they ultimately? 

Do they retain the original goal when they have finished?

Your First Vibecatch Poll

By now, any internet social HR professional should be witnessing first-hand the transition companies are making from old-school annual employee surveys, to frequent pulse polling or in other words, consistent employee engagement.  In fact, over the past few years, a clear handful of startups have developed applications and tools to help with this, including us, duh.

HR Tech has certainly come a long way.  If you check out Angel List and look up every HR Tech Startup that is listed in their database, you will see almost 200 startups with almost 1,000 investors and 100 different jobs currently being offered.  Since New Year’s Day, there are already four new HR Tech Startups listed.  Most people have no clue that this industry is literally booming right now.  Unless you work in human resources, most people wouldn’t even know that every year, Las Vegas holds a massive conference for HR technology.  In fact, almost 9,000 attendees make it each year, with more than 300 exhibiting companies and over 75 new product announcements.
