Retour au bureau ! Oui, mais comment ?

La crise sanitaire a provoqué, pour tous, des chamboulements dans l’organisation du travail et pour beaucoup cela a engendré des périodes plus ou moins longues de télétravail. Avec la rentrée de septembre, un retour au bureau plus généralisé s’annonce. Néanmoins, ce retour n’est pas de tout repos et exige un certain degré de vigilance de la part des organisations, afin d’accompagner au mieux leurs collaborateurs.

Entretien d’évaluation annuelle : boostez votre employabilité

La pratique de l’évaluation annuelle devient de plus en plus fréquente dans les entreprises. Véritable outil de management, l’entretien d’évaluation offre au manager un moyen de : • Renforcer et développer la performance de son équipe, • Favoriser l’implication individuelle au service du collectif, • Clarifier les objectifs et les attentes envers les collaborateurs, • Faciliter la communication entre les collaborateurs et leur supérieur hiérarchique.

Where Will We Be Working Next Year?

This is not a geographical or recruitment question! It is far more a question of trying to predict the future of the office as we know it and how further changes are going to affect the world of office workers. Many of you will be surprised to know that the first idea of remote working was launched in the 1970’s by NASA engineers as a means of combatting the oil crisis, so what has happened since? To gain an understanding of this you need to assess a vast range of criteria ranging from the history of technical progress to the influence of social criteria such as prestige and office politics, the complexity of which means that it is difficult to ascertain where the future lies.

How is Your Team Coping with the Challenge of the Crisis?

“Be prepared” is the well-known motto of the scout movement, in actual fact most of us like to prepare ourselves for what is in store, it is an automatic mechanism to cope with a specific situation. However, when a crisis like Covid-19 strikes it is virtually impossible to prepare oneself, there is no comparable “data” to process, which of course causes a feeling of great uncertainty in addition to the wide range of health issues and economic worries already being experienced. The need to get one’s bearings becomes even greater and so the spiral turns and anxiety increases. There are several potential sources of reassurance ranging from the family, to the work environment, some people even turn to social media or expert advice. No matter the choice of source, it must be able to “deliver”, as otherwise the situation may become even more serious.

L’expérience managériale n’existe pas !

Structure plate, digitalisation, coordination des équipes à distance, désirs de flexibilité et d’autonomie sont les nouveaux défis des managers d’aujourd’hui. Ce qui conditionne le succès de leur rôle est de savoir s’adapter au nouveau contexte plus que l’expérience antérieure : la mise en place du télétravail de façon intensive et précipitée liée à la crise du Covid-19 constitue un exemple significatif en ce sens. Comment alors développer l’expérience managériale ?

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?

Team Building - Favorisez la cohésion d’équipe à distance !

Le travail à distance, et plus particulièrement le télétravail, tend aujourd’hui à se généraliser avec le développement des nouveaux outils digitaux. Ce choix présente de nombreux avantages à la fois pour l’entreprise et les collaborateurs, mais il y a également des conséquences à ne pas négliger. En effet, le travail à distance ne favorise pas le développement des relations interpersonnelles, les interactions entre collègues ou avec la hiérarchie, il ralentit la communication directe et les collaborateurs peuvent ressentir un sentiment de cloisonnement et d’isolation par rapport à leur environnement de travail. Cela entraîne la perte des objectifs collectifs, le partage des connaissances, mais surtout la culture d’entreprise.
