The Yawn Known as HR Gamification | WIRED

The Yawn Known as HR Gamification | WIRED | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
Is it just me or have we all been talking for a long time now about how gamification is going to revolutionize HR functions? While much of the research indicates that more businesses and brands are using gamification to drive greater engagement with consumers than ever before, most folks in HR are just scratching the surface…
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

HR: Stop talking. Start moving! Gamification in HR has endless possibilities: new ways of recruitment, new ways of learning and development, new ways of boosting employee engagement. Plus, it will generate lots of handy data that can be used for effectiveness studies (even real-time!). Good Wired piece!

Flex Time Doesn’t Need to Be an HR Policy - HBR

Flex Time Doesn’t Need to Be an HR Policy - HBR | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it

"Many working dads either do not have access to, or feel comfortable taking, formal types of workplace flexibility owing to stigma and career consequences. "

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

HBR article discussing a new report by EY and Working Mother Research Institute on working men and working time flexibility. The survey shows that 77% of the working men have access to some form of working time flexibility. Although, flexibility is arranged in an informal way in most cases, having the possibility to use flexible time has tremendous advantages and positive effects for both workers and employers.

Smart Machines: The New 'Human' Capital? | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
The analogy between commodities trading and human capital recruiting is obvious. It seems likely that planning and managing your people will be done more and more by algorithms, not humans.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Great piece by HR-professor John Boudreau on the impact of technology and robots on human capital and the management of human capital. His suggestion: businesses should look with new and critical eyes to their human capital and work, and decide whether (and which) jobs can and have to be "deconstucted, automated and reconstructed".

Fast Forward 2030: The Future of Work and the Workplace | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it

The ideas, trends, and behaviors that will shape work and workplace in 2030 are already perceptible today. In this study, 220 experts, business leaders and young people from Asia, Europe, and North America shared their views on how these trends will impact business, evolve work practices and continue to revolutionize how, when, and where work happens. 

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Must-read report on the Future of Work. Some key findings on work, workers and the workplace:

 

* Process work, customer work and vast swathes of middle management will simply disappear
* New jobs will require creative intelligence, social and emotional intelligence and the ability to leverage artificial intelligence
* Workspaces with row of desks as we know them today will be completely redundant

* Happiness, purpose and meaning become more important than financial success
* Corporations will not only need to be lean and agile they must be authentic to attract talent
* As the nature of work changes we expect to see more social entrepreneurship

Getting Virtual Teams Right - HBR | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
Anna Parini “Virtual” teams—ones made up of people in different physical locations—are on the rise. As companies expand geographically and as telecommuting becomes more common, work groups often span far-flung offices, shared workspaces, private homes, and hotel rooms. When my firm, Ferrazzi Greenlight, recently surveyed 1,700 knowledge workers, 79% reported working always or frequently in […]
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Very neat HBR article from December issue on physically dispersed teams or better 'Virtual Teams'. The author, Keith Ferrazzi, explains how you to effectively create, manage and lead a virtual team.

Is This the Ultimate Flexible Workplace?

Is This the Ultimate Flexible Workplace? | Human Capital & Business Trends | Scoop.it
Employers that have a "results-only work environment" hold workers responsible only for defined outcomes, not hours in the office or on the job.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Cool article about how two HR managers at Best Buy came up with a new and modern way of output-based management (in order to fit the higher need of flexible working), and named it "Results-Only Work Environment" or ROWE.

 

"There is only a defined task and a person or team who completes that task. It is up to the employees to determine how that happens, whether it's from a coffee shop in mid-afternoon or in a closet-sized home office at 3 a.m. If the work gets done, they get paid. If it doesn't, they get fired."

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Excellent blog post by Deloitte on the rise of contingent talent cq. flexible workforce. By 2020, contingent workers will be up to 40% of the company's average workforce. Yet, the characteristics of this workforce are changing: "Indications are that the growing use of non-employees to perform an organization’s work is a structural rather than cyclical change." Thus having implications for HR.

In short: "Today a growing group of entrepreneurs is striving to do the same to services, bringing together computer power with freelance workers to supply luxuries that were once reserved for the wealthy." This trend poses new questions for workers, employers and policy makers.
