Growing up, making the Honor Roll was an amazing achievement. It was your school's way of recognizing you for all your hard work. By gaining this positive recognition, it motivated you to work hard the next semester to make the Honor Roll again.
As professionals in the workplace, receiving recognition for your hard work is still extremely valuable. But without an 'Honor Roll' list to make, as we had in school, consistent recognition from leaders on your performance can be hard to come by.

While most of us can recognize that being organized is a sought-after skill, it’s important to remember ‘being organized’ is more than just keeping a tidy home. Having strong organization skills can help you meet deadlines, be less forgetful, increase productivity, and reduce stress.
This is why in KaiNexus, we have the Remind, Review, and Snooze Features. This gives people the ability to organize and manage tasks in a more effective way.

As much as we'd all like to have all the answers, unfortunately, we don't. This is why we need collaboration, teamwork, and communication tools to help solve problems that we cannot by ourselves. One powerful tool for achieving this level of collaboration is to establish an escalation process in your organization. An escalation process is a communication tool used to bring things to the attention of others. It clarifies the boundaries and routes of decision-making throughout an organization in order to solve a problem quickly and efficiently. This process minimizes the time it takes to escalate (or de-escalate) decisions beyond one's authority.

Branding is so often overlooked by organizations as just an aesthetic component meant only for external customers. But really, branding is far more than that.
Branding starts from the inside of an organization. To successfully achieve your external branding efforts, you must ensure that your internal team has a commitment and understanding of your core values, mission, and everything your brand has to offer. A successful internal branding approach helps staff support company morale, productivity, retention, and ultimately, helps to improve the company's bottom line.
