Is it just me or do energy and utility companies have a gaping opportunity to change the way people perceive their brands and the sector as a whole? There are many pressures on them now but out of this situation can come the biggest opportunities.
The opportunity to build a sophisticated mobile infrastructure that envelopes customers in the brand, improving awareness, sales, retention and brand advocacy, is an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime – and the time is now.
That was one of the findings of my recent anonymous survey on how people learn best in the workplace, and even I was surprised by the results. But I think the biggest take-away from my survey is that we can no longer assume we know how people like to learn in the workplace nor how we think people should learn. So in this blog post, I want to share the data from my survey, some of my thoughts about the results, and the importance of undertaking your own survey.

Would you like to work in a space station? Not the boring old real space station where conditions are quite cramped but a space station built by graduates of the Stanley Kubrick school of interior design? If so, I highly recommend that you get in touch with Google, and ask to be transferred to London.

Especially for knowledge workers, over-the-top complexity has given rise to a host of under-met human needs. That’s a big and growing problem, not just for individuals but also for the organizations that employ them. It’s not just the economy that needs to recover; the wellbeing of the workforce needs recovery, too.
“Every person’s wellbeing is critical to achieving an organization’s goals and fulfilling its mission,” say Gallup researchers and authors Tom Rath and Jim Harter. “Every day in your organization, people don’t show up, don’t give their best effort, erode your productivity, and cost you millions of dollars because of poor mental and physical health.”
