The objective of this project is to explore and describe the future of workplaces in Britain, during a decade when the concept of ‘workplace care’ is changing and employers need to future-proof benefit packages to attract and retain talent. We have investigated the social, cultural, economic and technological forces shaping ‘workplace care’ in Britain; new and emerging trends; and the future of workplaces and employee care, looking towards 2030. This report contains four macro trends which describe the future of workplace care over the coming decades. The report also contains five analyses of how the trends resonate with employees in the accountancy, legal, technology, retail, media and advertising business sectors.

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, December 9, 2014 1:41 AM

This table describing the differences between management and leadership is thought provoking.  It could be my bias but isn't being on the left hand side more attractive?  The language seems far more appealing. 


However, we need great managers as well as great leaders and what strikes me is that the behaviours are so different.  That is why making the change from manager to leader can be very difficult in an organization, why people need some help with it and why identifying leaders early in the careers makes sense - before their habits of management become too engrained.

Greg Wisniewski's curator insight, December 9, 2014 4:13 PM

“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things" and "You lead people and manage things" are describing the difference for me.

Marcus Aldrin Andersson's curator insight, April 23, 2015 3:31 PM

Det finns många tabeller och artiklar som ställer "Ledare" mot "Chefer". Det här var en av de bättre jag sett.

With Fair and Open IT towards sustainable manufacturing and supply chains | P2P Foundation

“New technologies offer tremendous emancipatory opportunities if they are designed to be open and free (free software / open source hardware). However, they also entail new problems. Proprietary software prevents quick detection of programming errors and allows the surveillance of users. Devices are short-lived, the raw materials for their production are limited, and the working conditions in their production and recycling are often catastrophic. If new technologies are to meet our high expectations, the following questions must first be answered: Can these devices be fairly produced, traded and recycled? Is it possible to produce and use them autonomously? How can programming errors that represent security risks be avoided? And how can all these aspects be taken into account in the design process?

John Michel's curator insight, May 15, 2014 3:49 PM

In life, there are leaders, and there are followers. If you’re not leading, you need to figure out who you’re following. Take a look at your leader and be honest, because if they match too many of these traits, you’re following the wrong leader. Be careful when judging, however, because it’s always possible the problem is actually you.

Yet, these are similar instructions as what is passed down to the supply chain from executives focused on a specific supply chain metric.

Customer Relationship pillars

Michael Wilcox's curator insight, March 2, 2014 9:29 PM

The value and service of client base is paramount to business success yet too often considered as a cost centre rather than the profit centre it can be. Social media increases the reach of both good and bad customer services and experience - in the long run, it pays to take care of current clients.
