Hey there! How are you today? My expectation is that you are enjoying another terrific weekend. Sorry if you are not.
It’s again time to talk about human capital related matters today. I have said over and over again that human capital is critical to your business success. So, you can’t blame me for coming back to this human capital thing so soon. Can you? Of course not I believe. If you try blaming me I will most likely deflect it back to you. Putting that aside, today I intend to approach this topic from the angle of workplace trends, or rather, current changing trends in the workplace. Today’s workplace is changing rapidly, and so are enterprises and the entire world.
If you are an employer, you will realize that some of these changes are directly impacting your workforce already. Today’s workforce desires to spend less time in the office glued to the desk. This has given rise to blended workforce with a mixture of fulltime and freelancing workers. Again, the generation Z ladies and guys are extremely high-tech and love IT gadgets including social media like never before. This implies that the hours spent on a desktop might not realistically translate into productivity. Team performance instead of individual performance is being emphasized.
Additionally, the workplace is becoming more casual. Workplace liberty, wellness, work-life balance, and additionally other creative approaches to attracting and retaining staffs are becoming the order of the day. By the way, I’m not saying these to start a revolution in your enterprise if you are still 100% stuck in the ancient working place. Ok? My sincere intention is to provide for you some tips that may be useful in managing the rapidly changing workplace of today. So, what the hell are these tips anyway? Let’s get going now.
OK. Let me make a hurried exit now. I’ve tried to keep it short and sweet (KISS), so that you stay tuned as you wait for my next post.
