The Future of Work: Research Report

The Future of Work: Research Report | If you lead them, they will follow! | Scoop.it

Today’s business leaders face the challenge of creating the future workplace. Because of the advent of new technologies as well as the emergence of Millennials as a major percentage of the workforce, the future workplace will look vastly different than the one we are used to. At the same time, a culture of sharing, transparency, and mobility is entering the business world, as technology barriers lower. This change is being driven by the consumerization of IT, which can be described as the introduction of the popular consumer-grade technologies and devices that are spreading into the workplace for business use.

To better understand the scope and nature of this changes, Chess Media Group conducted a global research study in May 2013, surveying 605 employees who currently use social and collaboration technology tools, and how these tools affect their ability to work efficiently and flexibly.

This is certainly interesting but this small survey is at best suggestive rather than indicative of the future of work.

Agreed. This was small study however it is interesting to compare it to others that have been conducted.

Bullying at the workplace: Statistics on bullying

Bullying at the workplace: Statistics on bullying - Human resources News on Violence in the Workplace


"...between 35 and 50 percent of workers have been bullied or otherwise abused in their workplaces at some point during their careers." Duffy told us.


"And for those of you in HR, you might be very interested to learn of the frequency statistics that were reported in a very recent study – 31 percent of human resources personnel had been bullied and over half of that bullied group believed it was because of their role in human resources and their associated responsibilities."



As if the personal implications weren’t enough, there is also a financial aspect to this situation.


"In the United States, the actual cost . . . $250 million annually in expenditures related to health care, litigation, staff turnover, and retraining from workplace bullying and mobbing." Duffy explained.


This figure may be low given a lot of these types of costs are not always attributed to bullying when in fact they could be.

Great scoops Al on bullying! Leaders/bullying just do not mix.

It's time to take a close look at the quality of leadership in organizations!  Leadership is not a license to bully or condone it! The problem is that many of us don't know we are actually doing it!

Mental Health of a worker is in my opinion the most unrecognized health issue in a workplace. Bullying at the Workplace is something we all know that goes on and is not something that is easily addressed. There are ramifications that can arise from both ends of a bullying situation. This is something that is very important to me, i hope to one day influence the workplace to eradicate bulling and impose a higher motivational chi to a workplace.
