Woodbury, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Beyond being respected for their keen insight and engaging perspectives of all things related to human resources, what do Stacey Harris, Steve Boese, Robin Schooling, Paul Hebert, and Lance Haun have in common?

They all participated in our new paper, “The Power of HR Technology in the Quantified Organization.” Offered in Lightpaper™ format — a new generation of responsive-content publishing—this paper offers the attitudes and opinions of thought leaders about:

What the “datafication of HR” means to them, and more important, what it should mean to HR leaders today

How the role of HR technology has changed to meet the demands of the quantified organization

What area of HR technology is most likely to have the most immediate and measurable impact on, or in, the quantified organizationStacey Harris, with Sierra-Cedar, says that for HR to play its best role in today’s quantified organization, it needs to review internal and external metrics. But she advises that HR is historically prone to searching outside the organization for data before it examines what’s happening inside. Harris urges HR leaders to ask whether this data really applies to their organization.

Steve Boese, with the HR Technology® Conference & Expo, says that the way HR technology is evolving, HR will soon be quantifying how people spend their time in a much more specific and detailed way than ever before — not only while they’re online at work or using the company’s software, but tracking their personal time, too.

HR strategist Robin Schooling argues that the next step for HR technology will be software that offers better and more robust predictive modeling to enable HR to get ahead of the game on employee retention. It’s an improvement that she says is coming none too soon.

Lance Haun of The Starr Conspiracy believes you could make a compelling argument that HR data has the potential to have an impact throughout the entire organization. Learning and development, Haun hopes, is an area in which HR datafication will have the most immediate impact. Because, he asserts, most organizations simply don’t know their own people.

Something of a contrarian, Paul Hebert makes the case that sometimes HR uses data the same way a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination. He says HR technology needs to help HR better understand why the data says what it says, not just set HR up to react to the data.

The bottom line: “The Power of HR Technology in the Quantified Organization” is chock-full of easily accessible, highly readable wisdom and delightful opinions for HR leaders today.

Your Xbox 360 Can Be Saved

Have you been dealt the red rings of death?  Fear not, there are ways to fix this problem, and some of them are free.  There are actually different things that can cause your system to display the red lights.  Some of them can be fixed quickly and easily.

The easiest one to fix is the AV cable.  If your AV cable is even slightly loose, it could cause your Xbox 360 to display 4 red lights on the front of the console.  This can be remedied by unplugging and then plugging back in the AV cable.  Just make sure that it is plugged in securely to the back of the Xbox 360.

Another issue occurs when the console is overheated.  When the Xbox 360 gets too hot, it will shut off and 2 red lights will be displayed.  Two of the main causes of this problem is improper ventilation and running the system for too long.  A way to avoid this is to allow the console to cool off about every three hours.

One of the worst things to see on an Xbox 360 is 3 red lights on the front of the console.  This usually indicates a problem with the connection between the graphics processing unit and the mother board.  Occasionally, this could be caused by a defective power supply. 

If the power supply is displaying a green light, then it means that the GPU is the problem.  In the past, the best way to fix this was to send it in to Microsoft.  However, with a turn around time of about 3 weeks, this may not be the best option.  Additionally, for those of us who have had their Xbox 360 for a while, the warranty is probably expired. This means that you would have to pay Microsoft to repair it.

The best option I have found is to simply repair your Xbox 360 yourself.  This can be done in about 2 hours, if you have the right guide.  Like anything else on the internet, do your homework before dishing out your hard earned money.
