No Diversity Without Inclusion!

“Gratitude is an antidote to negative emotions, a neutralizer of envy, hostility, worry, and irritation. It is savoring; it is not taking things for granted; it is present-oriented.” – Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky

Although everyone is familiar with the term gratitude, as with every expression there are a multitude of ways of interpreting its meaning, particularly in a professional context. As Dr Lyubomirsky says it can play a major role to counteract and prevent negative emotions, which are generally toxic und rarely beneficial. Gratitude is far more complex than a quick “thank you”, in fact if expressed in a superficial or inappropriate way a thank you can actually have a far more negative impact than most would believe. In order to express gratitude, one must have a clear understanding of what the challenge comprised what its completion really entailed and the employee’s starting position. Did the employee go that famous extra mile to complete the task, go beyond what they would normally have delivered – exceed expectations?

“No Employee is an Island!”, Belongingness in the Digital Age

As the poet John Donne already stated in the 16th century:

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.”

This quote can easily be transferred to a business environment, as it reflects a basic need that most human beings experience. The need to create inter-personal links and to feel part of something bigger. Five centuries later, in 2019 Cognizant conducted a survey in partnership with Microsoft. The aim was to gain a better understanding of employee perceptions about belonging at work. They surveyed more than 10,000 employees from 17 countries allaround the world, 92% of whom expressed the overall importance of feeling a sense of belonging at work.

#Digital Pro – It’s a Mindset!

Digital transformation of the economy and the workplace is not a new phenomenon. It was already making rapid inroads thanks to digitalisation based on AI, big data and robotization, however the current Covid-19 confinement has provoked a huge step forward with almost everyone working from home, we have reached a new tipping point.
While digital transformation might have sounded far reached to some just a few months ago, today it has become clear that our ways of working will never return to the way things were and we all have to adapt to the “new normal”. The current situation has precipitated fundamental changes in our working practices; we have had to respond with agile thinking to transform our business routines digitally from one day to the next.
So how is a proper digital transformation set up for success?
When can we proudly conclude that we have transformed our business digitally and are up to speed? How do we know?
