Ataway had the pleasure to meet clients and Oracle Strategy Team Members last week at PeopleSoft RECONNECT in Rosemont, Illinois.

We had some great discussions with customers who stopped by our booth. Customers at RECONNECT were eager to upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2 and had a lot of questions to ask about the new release during our presentations.

(If you haven’t checked it out yet, please read our latest Executive Summary to find out more information about PeopleSoft 9.2).

In times of economic crisis, companies must often resort to cost-cutting measures. More often than not, this means reducing their best assets: the employees.

But staff reductions leave employees feeling disengaged. Recent studies have shown that employee engagement levels have dropped significantly since 2008. According to Gallup, more than two-thirds of American workers are "not engaged" or "disengaged" with  their workplaces due to the uncertainty of the economy over the past two years (Read: State of the American Workplace).

This leads to a loss of creativity and innovation. In an uncertain environment, people who are unengaged aren't going to speak up about issues they encounter or bring in new ideas. As a result, productivity really suffers, impacting the bottom line.

So how do you keep employees engaged in uncertain times? How do you optimize someone’s productivity during uncertain times?

Here are 3 ideas that have worked for other companies.

Are you a Buyer? Would you like to extend your payment terms to improve working capital? Do you want to earn rebates for all your spendings, similar to the rebates you receive from your p-card providers –  even for transactions where your Sellers don’t accept p-cards? Or would you like to improve working relationships with your Sellers while achieving any of these objectives?

Dynamic Discounting allows Buyers and Sellers of commercial goods and services to change the payment terms for an individual invoice or group of invoices to accelerate payments based on higher discounts. In other words, the Sellers won’t need to take on anymore factors, and the Buyers will need less banks to invest!

In short: Dynamic Discounting enables organizations to free up working capital tied up in the financial supply chain. But how?

Earlier last month, the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill that, if signed into law, would bring the biggest changes to U.S. immigration law since 1986.  U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization.

A critical component of the new bill is a provision that would require all U.S. employers to participate in the E-Verify program. E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA). This system allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
