All Things Workplace

So, I began reflecting on some recent speaking and workshop experiences. Leaders, managers, and heads of projects constantly seek ways to grow talent and make a difference in organizational success.

Four distinct factors came to mind as I thought about the give-and-take that led to learning for all of us. I hope you''ll find these useful. .

Developing Leaders: Why Training Interventions Fail?

QAspire

Companies spend considerable amount of time and money on developing leaders through training programs and workshops. I have attended a number of such training programs and workshops and have observed the impact of these interventions. My experience so far suggests that these time-bound and finite interventions fail over a long run in developing leadership capabilities.

How to Work Smarter and Be More Productive

On The Job

In my workshops, people hope to uncover a big secret about being more productive and getting organized. You''ve downloaded every new app that promises to keep you organized, read books that vow to make you more efficient — and yet you still feel stressed out and overwhelmed with the clutter on your desk and in your mind.

Employee Engagement: Is Employee Disengagement a Form of Death?

David Zinger

I was flying from Winnipeg to Singapore at the end of August to do a one day workshop on employee engagement. Something dies in us when we disengage. I was minding my own business when my brain began to nudge me with a quiet question that began to get louder and louder in consciousness: Is employee disengagement death? At first it felt like an absurd question to be pondering at 39,000 feet over the Pacific ocean. My immediate answer was no.

#GamifyHR - Gamification Design

Strategic HCM

Day 2 was a workshop day involving a mix of game playing and interactive group work, following different if similar processes for gamifying HR / work or other things (we spent quite a bit of time - a bit too much time for me - gamifying avoidable blindness.)

Spur Productivity and Retention With a More Strategic New Employee Onboarding Process

Insperity

For example, you could practice cross-boarding through a special workshop for new supervisors and managers. Half of all hourly workers leave new jobs in the first four months, and half of senior outside hires fail within 18 months, according to the SHRM Foundation’s report, Onboarding New Employees: Maximizing Success. When you consider the costs of recruiting and hiring , those figures translate into a lot of money wasted for employers – not to mention the lost time.

With HR Magazine and Thomas Wedell on Innovation

Strategic HCM

I talk about both of these sides of the challenge on my open workshops with Symposium Events: HR and Innovation (where we talk about HR helping organisations become more innovative, but also creating more innovation within HR.) I’m taking a short break from my focus on gamification at a session organised by HR Magazine with some of its HR Excellence Awards judges, HR in the Boardroom alumni and a few others.

Even Santa needs an employee handbook

Ohio Employer's Law

Pop culture, such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Elf , portrays Santa’s workshop as a happy, jolly place, where the elves gleefully craft toys all hours of the day and night, with not even a whisper of discontent. The Christmas season is upon us, which means that the elves are hard at work deep inside the confines of the North Pole’s buildings preparing gifts to load onto Santa’s sleight for his Yuletide trip around the globe.
