Did you know that two-thirds of U.S. health care spend, or $1.8 trillion, goes purely to salaries and wages? Yet our patient outcomes are on par with countries such as Cuba and Slovenia. Health care reform is changing the way our health care system operates and will ultimately affect your bottom line.
Dr. Robert Kocher, M.D. has been a key influencer of health care reform efforts in the U.S. In this white paper, Dr. Kocher discusses:
•Three recent policy changes
•Four potential outcomes of health care reform
•The evolving roles within the health care system
The U.S. spends more on health care than any country in the world – to the tune of $7,290 per capita per year. Yet this massive spend does not equate to high quality care for Americans. As a result, $300 billion is wasted every year.
If you’re a self-insured employer focused on driving down health care costs and better meeting the health care needs of your employees, this paper provides valuable and actionable insights to help you achieve this goal.
This white paper reveals:
• How low-quality care affects both the cost of care as well as patient outcomes
• Five best practices in helping employees identify high-value providers

Strategic HR means managing HR in a way that supports the company’s long-term business goals and outcomes. In essence, it goes far beyond the administrative duties HR has been known for and applies HR principles and practices to overall business strategy—both now and in the future. But while HR professionals recognize the importance of strategic HR, a recent study shows that not nearly as many HR professionals actually practice it.
In 2017, NAVEX Global partnered with an
independent research firm to survey ethics and
compliance (E&C) professionals from a range of
industries on their approach to E&C training.
The findings represent responses from 929
This report provides insights and analysis of
E&C training questions such as:
-What approaches do organizations take?
-What challenges do organizations face?
-How do organizations measure effectiveness?
-What outcomes or benefits do organizations
realize and what influenced them?
-What activities are priorities for organizations?

An employee’s first few days are critically important, not only because organizations need to get their new hire up to speed as soon as possible, but also because the initial days at a new job hold huge influence over an employee’s decision to stay with the company long term.
While onboarding has typically been geared toward new hires, organizations are now also onboarding transitional workers, to better prepare those moving into managerial or executive roles.
Human Capital Media — the research arm of Chief Learning Officer magazine — partnered with SilkRoad for the “2016 CLO Innovations in Onboarding Survey.” We examined best practices in onboarding to answer these common questions, and more:
• How do organizations define onboarding and how it fits into their overall strategy?
• Who is involved in the process and how does technology enhance onboarding efforts?
• What are examples of successful onboarding outcomes?

With the introduction of enterprise-grade all-flash arrays,
conventional thinking about storage has been turned on
its head. For example, a recent Gartner study found that all-flash storage pays for itself in just five to six months
on average, the result of dramatic improvements in total
cost of ownership (TCO).
Infinidat provides the difference you seek in a data storage solution for media and entertainment organizations. New demands have everyone in the industry feeling the impact of high latency storage and its impact on efficiently delivering speed to market on new and dense workload management. The Infinidat unified storage architecture enables the scale, performance and best overall TCO required to deliver an extreme competitive advantage to media and entertainment companies.
Infinidat® enterprise storage solutions are based upon the unique and patented Infinidat storage architecture—A fully abstracted set of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) functions integrated with the best-of-breed off-the-shelf commodity hardware. Infinidat’s software-focused architecture, an evolution and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive. This paper discusses the technology that enables Infinidat to be the only enterprise storage provider that achieves multi-petabyte capacity with faster than all-flash performance (over 1.3M IOPS at microsecond latency) and an unprecedented seven-nines availability, all at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
