Why Companies No Longer Reward Loyal Employees

Why Companies No Longer Reward Loyal Employees | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when the American workplace operated under an implicit agreement: Employees who worked hard at their jobs and stayed loyal to a company were rewarded with job security, health benefits, and other perks. This bargain is an example of what’s known as the norm of reciprocity — repaying one kindness with another —and reciprocity is a universal component of the moral code that governs human behavior. Yet in today’s work world, reciprocity operates with less force.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Companies would be wise to build less calculative cultures where there is greater emphasis on morality and ethics, and where the norm of reciprocity still operates.

Data is crucial. However, displaying a chunk of plain data can be monotonous. Infographics visualize plain data and make it visually more appealing. Data turned into infographic has a higher potential to go viral and be effective. While many of us are designers who can design amazing infographs, Infographic Generators can come in handy to Designers and non-designers alike. They can be a time saving resource.

15 Secrets of Highly Persuasive People | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Whether you're convincing your boss to fund your project or your preschooler to wipe his own hiney after using the bathroom, persuasion is a skill that's instrumental to your success in life.

Persuasive people have an uncanny ability to get you leaning toward their way of thinking. Their secret weapon is likeability. They get you to like more than their ideas; they get you to like them.

(From the article): Persuasive people are adept at reading and responding to other people. They rely heavily on emotional intelligence (EQ) to bring people to their way of thinking. With 90% of top performers high in emotional intelligence, it's no wonder that persuasive people rely on this skill to get ahead. Add these skills to your repertoire, and you're on your way to joining this exclusive group.

How To Do A Damn Good Daily Standup Meeting

How To Do A Damn Good Daily Standup Meeting | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Please raise your hand if you’ve ever found yourself in a boring status meeting.


One task done here, another one not done there. A manager goes through a list of tasks and asks almost everyone in turn. 5 minutes talking, 15 minutes talking, 30 minutes talking and the list goes on. In general, after 15 minutes, the average person’s mind is going to wander.

How the Best Board Directors Stay Involved

How the Best Board Directors Stay Involved | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

“Ask me for anything,” Napoleon Bonaparte once remarked, “but time.” Board members today don’t have that luxury either. Directors remain under pressure from activist investors and other constituents, regulation is becoming more demanding, and businesses are growing more complex. McKinsey research suggests that the most effective directors are meeting these challenges by spending twice as many days a year on board activities as other directors do.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Ultimately, there are no shortcuts to building and maintaining well-tuned board and executive mechanics.

My last few posts discussed the transformation of the IT department. Continuing that theme, there will be times when members of the IT staff will give presentations to executive management and various business departments/units. For example:  How IT will enable business performance, growth and innovation...How IT provides returns on IT spending...How IT projects align with the company's strategy. This article contains some very practical guidelines for making a successful presentation and it includes a very useful infographic.

The online tools in this articele can prove to be a boon to writers. While one of these helps with editing and correcting syntactical errors, the other helps provide an idea about the popularity of a particular topic or idea. Another provides information on adwords. I have personally used a few of these online tools, and sure they helped give me an sinsight into the mechanics of writing and publishing. Would certainly recommend these tools to aspiring writers!
