Employers Now Using Sensors To Track Your Productivity

Employers Now Using Sensors To Track Your Productivity | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

According to a story in the Wall Street Journal today, employees are more productive when they interact face-to-face with their coworkers. Productivity is also affected by things as mundane as the location of coffee stations and the size of lunch tables (smaller is better).

Far more remarkable than these behavioral insights, though, is how they were achieved: By asking employees to strap on sensors that record every movement, meeting, and conversation that happens during the day. It’s a growing trend among companies like Bank of America and Steelcase, hoping to leverage the power of Big Data to make their offices leaner and more productive.

15 Executives Share the Best Advice Their Mentors Ever Gave Them

15 Executives Share the Best Advice Their Mentors Ever Gave Them | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

I checked in with more than a dozen top executives who credit their mentors with helping them achieve great things. Here's the advice they remember most.


1. If you're going to be in the room, be useful.


"It was advice my first boss gave me after he invited me to join a big client pitch, and I sat in silence taking notes the entire time thinking that was my place. It's advice I took to heart from that day on, and it's been incredibly important while building a startup where things only happen if you make them happen."


--Chris Toy, CEO and founder of Bindle, the mobile app bringing people together with shareable chats



The Learning Factor's insight:

Anyone who's serious about getting ahead in business knows the value of a mentor. Not only can this person be a sounding board and treasure trove of advice, he or she can act as your advocate and a catalyst for your career goals.
