How Strategic Is Employee Scheduling?

Before I started the agency (way back near the turn of the century), one of my early marketing positions was with a time-and-attendance and employee scheduling company. I had moved from Austin to Boston to take the job. My wife and I had never lived outside of Texas, and being newly married with no children we decided to take a chance on New England. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Jennifer worked downtown and I commuted from Boston’s South End out to Framingham every day to punch the clock (pun intended).

InfluenceHR 2019: Leaving Las Vegas

“A little bit of this town goes a very long way.”


That Hunter S. Thompson guy had a way with words.

We won't lie — Las Vegas has been good to us. More specifically, the HR Tech® Conference has been great to us. We’ve been able to grow the InfluenceHR  event each year. We’ve had the pleasure of buying drinks for just about every workplace technology vendor that has ever stepped foot on the expo floor. And just last year, one of our directors won a cool $17 with a fateful pull of a Duck Dynasty slot machine lever. 

Needless to say — The Starr Conspiracy does Vegas right. Even still, we knew something was amiss from our yearly bash on the strip.
