HR Magazine - Technology: a performance tool that undermines trust?

HR Magazine - Technology: a performance tool that undermines trust? | Recuitment 2.0 - Social Media - Labor Relations | Scoop.it

Despite a substantial body of research showing that giving employees more autonomy and control leads to productivity growth, the UK in the last decade has been moving in the opposite direction.

 

Oxford professor Duncan Gallie and his colleagues found strong evidence of declining ‘task discretion’ and a significant reduction in autonomy in UK jobs.

 

Similarly, researchers Michael White and Stephen Hill suggest that while employees may have more freedom to decide how they deliver their targets, employers operate more rigorous regimes of accountability through sophisticated performance management systems and extensive surveillance.

 

Both studies show some workers have less control in their jobs than a decade ago, and that the use of IT in the workplace is one of the key areas for the erosion of autonomy.

(From the article): So technology pulls in two directions – sometimes reducing autonomy, sometimes stimulating creativity. Perhaps in workplaces where there is already a climate of distrust or cynicism, technology will be met with distrust, if the apparent liberty of ‘always-on technology’ leads to the tyranny of ‘always-on work’.

In the book, "The Charge," successful entrepreneur Brendon Burchard comments, "the team and project-based work dynamic causes many of us to act in ways that actually impair our ability to learn."  

This stream will be about searching out ways to instill positive, systemic practice that support talent development to the fullest.  ~  Deb
