[25/06/19] Lunch’n’Learn: Hyperconnectivity in the workplace. How charged are you?
Hyperconnectivity in the workplace. How charged are you?
MindForest is delighted to invite you to its first Lunch’n’Learn in English, which will take place on 25thJune 2019 from 12:00-14:00 at the MindForest Lounge located at 11, rue Ste-Zithe, L-2763 Luxembourg.
Hyper-connectivity is a term first invented by Canadian social scientists Anabel-Quan-Haase and Barry Wellman, arising from their studies of person-to-person and person-to-machine communication in networked organizations and societies.
The term refers to the use of multiple means of communication, such as email, messaging, phone, chatbot, push notifications, face to face contact and Web 2.0 (social media) services.
While modern communication tools aimed to make business communication easier, quicker and more efficient, today hyperconnectivity is linked to communication-overload resulting in stress and change of human behavior both in private and business life.
In May 2016, the French parliament passed a law about the “right to disconnect” (le droit de la déconnexion), but how do we deal with this in the reality of day-to-day working?
Can we stay on top of work, while taking care of our employees and our own health? What are the do’s and don’ts?
During this Lunch’n’Learn, MindForest will introduce you to the topic; you will gain an understanding of hyperconnectivity and its consequences as well as receiving input about how to navigate the different media and their appropriate use.
Together, we will discuss tips and tricks to manage the potential risks involved and cope with stress and pressure to avoid a culture of communication overload.
