NHS sickness absence rates up due to short-term approach

NHS sickness absence rates up due to short-term approach | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
NHS staff sickness absence levels increased last year, with anxiety, stress and depression becoming a growing problem. Trusts have also been criticised for too often seeing staff health and wellbeing as “an optional extra”, four separate reports have suggested.

Figures from the Health and Social Care Information Centre have shown overall NHS staff sickness absence rose to 4.48% in November 2014, from 4.24% in November 2013.
David Hain's insight:

Sense And Nonsense In Leadership Development

Sense And Nonsense In Leadership Development | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
Our opportunity in leadership development is to bring more science into what we do by creating ever better ways to measure the current state of leadership behavior, along with the change we produce. This allows us to bring science into the art of leadership development and to drive out the nonsense that will always fill the void where good science doesn’t exist.

Identify your context and build everything around it

Identify your context and build everything around it | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
According to Lynda Gratton, work is no longer being defined by HR, but rather by ‘context’, which is created by the emergence of megatrends and their impact on society: “Work is being shaped by technology, globalisation, democracy and the ageing workforce, and the opportunity you have to make work as you want it,” she tells me.
“We are now faced with a “hollowing out” of work – medium-skilled jobs have disappeared and are being replaced by technology, so there’s either low-paid work or specialised high-paid work, with a huge emphasis on education and lifelong learning.”
And because people lie at the heart of corporate purpose, this means that organisations must build a context to innovate and excite them – which, for Gratton, presents a huge opportunity for HR to be positioned as ‘enabler’ and ‘inspirer’.
David Hain's insight:

Excellent insights from Lynda Gratton on context, organisations as a force for good, and emancipating HR.


No effective development without clear context from beginning to end!

Quality of UK management has failed to improve in more than a decade,

Quality of UK management has failed to improve in more than a decade, | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
The overall quality of management in the UK continues to trail the USA, Germany and other productivity leaders and is one of the key reasons behind the UK’s long-standing productivity weakness. 

That’s according to a new report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Are UK organisations getting better at managing their people? is the latest chapter in the CIPD’s Megatrends project which explores the economic and social trends that are shaping the world of work now and in the future. This latest report reviews the available evidence on people management practices and how these have changed since the 2003 Government-commissioned report by Michael Porter and Christian Ketels that identified quality of management as an important determinant of economic performance.  

While people management practices do change with the times, the CIPD’s report found little evidence of underlying improvement over the last decade

As we enter into the brave new world marked by characteristics of Uncertainty, Exponential change, Complexity, Conflict and Lack of trust, revolutionary trends are dramatically redefining the way we work.  Disruptive technologies, rapid globalization and changing employee expectations mixed with a volatile business environment have implications for HR and the impending talent crisis adds to the complexity.  Thus a complete re-evaluation of traditional HR practices is required.

30 years in HR: 10 lessons

30 years in HR: 10 lessons | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
I am convinced that HR can contribute a lot to a high performance culture. But human resources professionals should be willing to be tough and persistent. In most organizations I have worked in, performance issues were not dealt with in an appropriate way. Of course, when the performance is really poor, there is no problem. It is mediocre performance that is the issue. We blame the market. We hope next year will be better. We hope a new financial director in the team will make the difference. We do not want to be ruthless and decide to give another chance. Often the signals of mediocre performance have been there for years. Employees see it, and wonder why management is not taking action. The main lesson for me, which I try to practice: HR step up to the plate, and take your leadership role seriously. If you only consider yourself as just an advisor, you cannot be effective.

Sorry: Easy To Say, Not So Easy To Do | The Story of Telling

Sorry: Easy To Say, Not So Easy To Do | The Story of Telling | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
Businesses have teams of people who can respond to complaints and fewer who are held accountable for fixing things. Sorry in isolation does not constitute an apology. Every apology has two parts. The admission that something went wrong, followed by the action taken that will mean it doesn’t happen again.

So when the Telco apologises for interrupting customers at the weekend. The apology must be more than an admission. Part two involves changing something so that it doesn’t happen again.

A New Perspective On Leadership Training: From The Outside In

A New Perspective On Leadership Training: From The Outside In | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
Before you sign up for one more intensive, introspective “know yourself” leadership training course, take a look at the new trend in leadership development.

“My research shows that today’s focus on introspection, reflection and self- knowledge is misguided – if anything it blinds us to the thing that really could help us develop,” says Herminia Ibarra, the Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership & Learning at INSEAD in France in her new book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader (Harvard Business Review Press). Instead, Ibarra says executives should use something she has termed “outsight” – getting out of their daily work-only routine and placing themselves in situations that will given them a fresh perspective and new information on their work, their networks, themselves, as well as on future possibilities.
David Hain's insight:

Change from the outside in means starting with acting differently as a conduit to thinking differently. Good development concept.

Talent will not be wasted for much longer: Alain de Botton

Talent will not be wasted for much longer: Alain de Botton | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

De Botton believes that many people are stuck in large organisations, working towards a project or product that will not be ready for years. This is “frightening” in terms of meaning. “Not having a clear sense of purpose in your work leads to cynicism and degrades the relationship between employee and employer,” he says. “Companies need to square up with this.”

David Hain's insight:

More employers will begin to see the clear link between long-term profitability and developing services, products and workplaces that help consumers and staff find genuine meaning in their lives. - Alain De Botton
