by   Nikki Trinnear on 11.08.17

Every year Fuel Good brings together industry experts and thought leaders to teach conference-goers more about technology and innvovation. This is the foundation of our conference, but what really takes Fuel Good to a higher level are the keynote speakers we hand pick to inspire and motivate attendees. These speakers not only give listeners valuable skills and tips to better serve their communities, they also remind us why we do the work that we do: to fuel good in the world. That's why Sparkrock is excited to announce our second keynote of Fuel Good: Liz Weaver, the Co-CEO of Tamarack Institute!

Sparktivist? Never heard of it.

by   Nikki Trinnear on 10.05.17

Sparktivist. What does that word even mean? It's certainly not in the dictionary (even though words like gimcrack somehow are...). Well since we can't find a good definition, I suppose the next best thing to do is define it ourselves:

Sparktivist

[spark-tuh-vist] noun

1. An especially active, vigorous advocate for Sparkrock

This special program is designed to reward our activists – more than ever before – for sharing their experiences and expertise, referring colleagues, and helping us create and spread great content.

by   Nikki Trinnear on 08.21.17

We could go on and on about why you should attend Fuel Good, but we know that the most important reason is the chance to learn from industry experts on Finance, HR/Payroll, and O365. That's why we want to encourage all those attending to consider signing up for the additional day of training on the Wednesday before the conference begins. If you're looking to get a valuable, in-depth learning experience from Fuel Good, why only limit yourself to 2 days? Our hands-on training in Jet Reports, Sparkrock Finance and Workforce, and MS O365 will leave you amazed with how much you can learn in just one day.

by   Meghan Holmes on 05.24.17

HR staff play a crucial role in your organization that affects your employees in many ways, and in smaller organizations, they usually have to be a jack of all trades. This puts a lot of pressure on your HR team to support employees while still managing and keeping the integrity of other projects, especially if employees are constantly coming to you with small, tedious tasks. 

Let's face it— there aren't enough hours in the workday for you to accomplish all of your HR responsibilities.
