The monthly top 5: October

Whoa. The year is coming to a close. There are only two months left in 2019.

I know this because Halloween.

I used to be totally into the last day of October, All Hallows’ Eve. My friends and I would change costumes at least 10 times, hitting up the houses with full-size Snickers bars until our neighbors got wise, sending us on our way with a light reprimand.

These days, I’m a little less enthused.

Now, the news.

October’s top 5 blog posts

1. The lack of women in tech is a problem – here’s how we fix it

Back in 1984, 37 percent of computer science majors were women. Today, that number is 18 percent.

In fact, women will hold only 20 percent of computing jobs by 2025, according to U.S. News.

What happened? More importantly, how do we fix it?

To find out, read this great blog post by Susan deCathelineau, senior vice president of global healthcare sales and services at Hyland.

2. Teeing up the Hyland story

“Who is Hyland and what do you do?”

This is Ed McQuiston’s recurring nightmare. Or, it was.

McQuiston is executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Hyland, so part of his job is making sure people know the answers to the questions above. How did he solve the problem?

4. The high-tech future of accounts payable

Whoa, again. For the fifth month in a row, this great blog post by Danielle Simer, marketing portfolio manager at Hyland, is in the top five. Clearly, many of you want to know how artificial intelligence, big data, and blockchain will take accounts payable into the future.

Organizations that are taking a proactive approach and prioritizing these emerging technologies are creating competitive advantages that validate their leadership.

5. Do you mind? The new question at work

It seems now more than ever people inside and outside the workplace are focused on their physical and mental health.

“Flexing your muscles on the exterior may be great, but the big muscle between the ears is what drives the important things in life: our thought processes, relationships, and overall happiness,” says Kyle Leonard, intern at Hyland.

For any employer, an investment in mental health and mindfulness is one that will pay dividends in both happiness and the bottom line. In fact, small investments in empowering employee mental health improved their productivity equivalent to 2.6 hours extra per week per employee, according to a study by Harvard Health.

Feeling the pressure? Check out Leonard’s post for some great tips on how to manage stress at work.

That’s it, and I mean it

Thanks for stopping by. And for doing so without demanding treats, because – despite the telltale sign of chocolate smeared on my face – I’m all out.
