Stop Wasting Your Employees’ Time

Stop Wasting Your Employees’ Time | The life, the ... and everything | Scoop.it

Not so long ago, the idea that an employee could connect anytime, anywhere, was seen as a revolution in work–life balance. You could get home in time for dinner or go on vacation even when a project was at a critical point. Your smartphone could turn wherever you were into your mobile office.

But now many believe this unlimited connectivity has gone too far. Studies have concluded that late-night smartphone use has an adverse effect on employee productivity and engagement. A growing number of companies, such as Volkswagen and Atos, have enacted email policies intended to mandate unplugging. An agreement in April 2014 between French employers and unions created an “obligation to disconnect” for contract workers to ensure that they don’t burn out, and Germany is currently considering legislation that would ban communication from employers to their workers after hours.

Smartphones are not the problem—it’s bad management that people resent.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 7, 11:55 PM
The idea of being connected to the organisation 24X7 via whats app, or e-mail often results in a sense of being monitored by big brother. The idea of connecting to employees all the time has begun to rankle many. Jennifer has rightly pointed out that 'what appeared to be a revolution in work-life balance has gone too far'! Research has shown that late night smartphone use has an adverse impact on 'employee productivity and engagement! Some of the well know organisations like Volkswagen have even enacted mandates for unplugging. Isn't it high time so called efficient organisations desisted from pestering employees with late night messages, and even messages on holidays? French employers and unions have even created an 'obligation to disconnect' for contract workers, isn't it high time others did the same too? The stress resulting from excess connectivity and the anxiety factor that leads to reduced employee productivity is simply not worth it! I have known of organisations that make it mandatory for their employees to switch their data service on so that they can receive whats app messages the moment they step into the organisation, others make it mandatory for their employees to keep their whats app on at all times. Similarly the shift from the good old written circular to the e-mail soft copy form has made it convenient to deny receiving a mail, or for that effect easier to blame the employee of negligence in checking a mail that was sent earlier. What makes it worse is that it is easier to miss an e-mail that forms part of a hundred mails than a hard copy of the same communication for which you have signed an acknowledgement!

Think slower: How behavioral science can improve decision making in the workplace

Think slower: How behavioral science can improve decision making in the workplace | The life, the ... and everything | Scoop.it
In its more extreme forms, fast thinking that misfires repeatedly may translate into a pattern of debilitating behavior—one that makes it difficult to work effectively. In an office environment, there is evidence that these fast thoughts can lead to a variety of negative outcomes, including repeated fear of speaking up in meetings, poor conflict management skills, and chronic presentation anxiety.3 Behavioral scientists are developing therapies that address the fast, destructive thoughts as they relate to mental illness.

While that may not be a concern for most businesses, aspects of these programs are applicable to everyday fast-thinking issues. Through therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), researchers are developing programs to help people recognize the circumstances around their negative thoughts and, consequently, slow them down to engage in more positive behaviors.4

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 26, 4:42 PM
In change programs you often deal with a lot of politics and may be tempted to go along. If you are committed to the success of the change you must also dare take personal risks. You need to say what you honestly think is going on and sometimes report hard things to hear. Tough messages for the sponsors, often in very high positions. They may not be used to getting honest feedback or constructive criticism. Prepare well.

THE FUTURE: GENERALISTS HELP US UNDERSTAND OUR WORLD … need a frame?

THE FUTURE: GENERALISTS HELP US UNDERSTAND OUR WORLD … need a frame? | The life, the ... and everything | Scoop.it

“Diversity is a great way in which the universe explores its future.” (Brian Swimme, cosmologist)

Our world is originally built for specialists – “what’s valued intellectually is specialty knowledge … It’s not enough to be a physicist, one has to be particle physicist or a quantum-loop theorist.”

Good thing you would say – find your personal niche and be this very special person!


The internet allows people to make money from new ideas, from their passion. Finding and occupying the own special niche is the trend!

There are many books for future entrepreneurs who sell you this dream: “It is so easy … find your niche … and success will be yours!” You only have to find your niche …


And people follow the own dream … joyfully and willingly! They say: “People make money from the strangest ideas, I only have to sell this particular dream.”


But times have changed and the internet and our technology is complex. And no one in marketing really knows what they are doing. Insecurities arise and people don’t know where to find solutions. And how will they know – they are specialists in their field, placed to explain you the own field, the own expertise. Their knowledge is reduced to this special field – targeted knowledge. They could explain you everything in their field but not what is false in context, in relation to other fields. A kind of limited thinking, that shows you always where your potential ends and where you cannot follow.
