Attitudes Towards Flexible Working (Summary) [Slides] - Via: Anna Rudenko cc @stenkate en @ErikPlas

Who?

• Around two-thirds of office workers work flexibly at least on occasion;
• Males (71%) are more likely to be flexible workers than females (57%);
• One in five respondents work away from the office at least twice a week.

 

Why?

• 56% of flexible workers believe they work more productively away from the office, and 48% say this is because they can fit their work around personal commitments;
• Three in ten are most productive when at home;
• Four in ten (40%) respondents think flexible working would be at least very important to any decision they would make about changing job.

 

How?

• Just 19% of employees find their already over-stretched IT team “very helpful” in providing technology support for flexible working;
• More than half (51%) of respondents lack access to a company laptop or mobile email device to help them when working flexibly;

• This could be a reason why 43% of all office workers and one-third of those working for a large enterprise use either a personal laptop or mobile device for email access.

(Dutch) Crowdfunding windmolen levert 3,5 miljoen op. In Nederland

Drieduizend Nederlanders zijn samen verantwoordelijk voor het Nederlandse crowdfundrecord: samen brachten ze 3,5 miljoen bij elkaar waarmee een gezamelijke windmolen wordt aangeschaft. Tienduizend winddelen gingen voor 351 euro per stuk van de hand. Kopers mogen de opbrangst van de windmolen in mindering brengen op hun energierekening. De verkoop startte eind juni. De Windcentrale, organisator van deze actie, hoopt vöör volgend jaar nog een tweede molen te hebben 'verkocht'. Alleen dan gaat de aanschaf ook werkelijk door. Met dank aan @kleverlaan

 

Zelf ook crowdfunden? ... wij hebben een boek over crowdfunding gemaakt. Niet om geld te verdienen, maar omdat we willen dat jullie allemaal met dit fenomeen aan de slag kunnen ;-) De e-books kosten zelfs maar 2,49 dat is te geef! Meer info HIER.

More than ever, non-profits are relying on social media to reach their target audiences and help make the world a better place. Why social media? Because Facebook, Twitter and other networks are where the eyeballs are. In fact, socially shared content makes up 10% of all web content, at least according to analysis by the social platform ShareThis.

Sephora counts 64,000 followers on Pinterest, a sizable audience for any brand on the young platform—but still not much in terms of social media scale.
