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.

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?

Gratitude is the Best Attitude

Is Your Digital Transformation Human?

There have recently been many articles published on the subject of how best to embark on a digital transformation project, which is unsurprising given the current context. Where ever we go, we see examples of digitalization, some successful, some less, but do we stop and ask ourselves how they came about and whether they really fulfilled their original objectives? In addition to this, the history and the culture of the company involved play a major role in such a transformation, but these are factors which may not be apparent to outsiders – perhaps not even to the very clients, who are affected by the changes.
This in turn explains why some projects run aground, as clients “vote with their feet” and transfer their loyalty to another supplier, who seems more aligned to their requirements and expectations. Did something change while the project was already in full swing or were the parameters ill-judged from the outset?

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.
