Are those jerks at work dragging you down?

Are those jerks at work dragging you down? | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it
Sometimes co-workers can enliven your day and even inspire, while others … well, some can be downright soul-crushing. According to new research at the University of Michigan, those jerks at work do more than make you feel bad — they drag down the job performance of people who interact with them. "We were able to shed some light on the question of whether de-energizing relationships are just a hassle, or if they have deeper consequences," said Gretchen Spreitzer, professor of management and organ

Equipes virtuelles, défis réels : comment manager à distance ?

Equipes virtuelles, défis réels : comment manager à distance ? | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Lorsque la collaboration se fait à distance, le socle commun est très difficile à construire. Ignorant le contexte dans lequel évolue l’interlocuteur, on émet des hypothèses – souvent fausses – sur le sens de certains de ses propos ou de ses actes. Un exemple classique est le calendrier des jours fériés, qui varie énormément si les différents partenaires opèrent dans des pays différents.

How gaming can encourage business innovation ?

How gaming can encourage business innovation ? | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Today, serious games are used for both employee and customer engagement. Disney’s  “Disneystars” game, for example, is designed to build employees’ understanding of Disney’s leisure businesses, to facilitate cross and up-selling. Alternatively, they can also be implemented by Human Resources departments for training, assessment or recruitment.  L’Oréal’s serious game “Reveal” is a good example of serious games in this context. 

 

Business leaders often talk about their desire to tap into their employees’ knowledge; serious games provide a great means to achieve this.  The challenge now for organisations is to make the most of this best practice, flip the knowledge transfer process, and innovate through gaming.  In this way they can reset the processes of learning and innovation.

Ces conflits interpersonnels qui sapent l’efficacité des entreprises | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Aux Etats-Unis ou en Grande-Bretagne, c’est un vrai sujet depuis des années. Des leaders mondiaux comme Amazon, Google ou MWH  interrogent régulièrement leurs équipes pour détecter ces conflits. Chercheurs et consultants ont mis au point des cartographies des réseaux relationnels - hiérarchiques ou informels - pour localiser les « nœuds » problématiques. Et certaines sociétés réactualisent ces cartographies régulièrement.

The contribution of network research to managerial culture and practice

The contribution of network research to managerial culture and practice | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Although research on social networks has gained significant influence in the academic world, several factors seem to have lowered its echo in the business world. It is still unclear how this fast-growing stream of research has translated into solid implications for managerial action and decision making. Based on a review of recent research, this paper attempts to provide evidence that network research does have practical relevance.

No Time to Be Nice at Work

No Time to Be Nice at Work | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Rudeness and bad behavior have all grown over the last decades, particularly at work. For nearly 20 years I’ve been studying, consulting and collaborating with organizations around the world to learn more about the costs of this incivility. How we treat one another at work matters. Insensitive interactions have a way of whittling away at people’s health, performance and souls.

3 conseils pour optimiser votre réseau

3 conseils pour optimiser votre réseau | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

En quelques années, l’expression « faire carrière » a complétement changé de sens. D’un côté, les entreprises ne sont plus en mesure d’offrir à leurs collaborateurs suffisamment de possibilités d’évolution pour nourrir une vie professionnelle entière. De l’autre, les salariés sont moins attachés à leur entreprise, n’hésitant plus à opter pour des « carrières nomades » et à réévaluer constamment leur situation, quitte à aller chercher ailleurs de nouvelles opportunités.

Serious Games : The Recycling Strategy

Serious Games : The Recycling Strategy | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

Higher education organizations use different strategies when implementing serious games in their learning process.  Each of these strategies aims at reaching specific Key Performance Indicators (from students’ satisfaction to organizational benefits or ROI) and therefore corresponds to different deployment conditions. From my personal experience and some analysis, I think that there is a progression curve from a “Recycling” to “Co-branding” Strategy.

Generating Business Referrals for SMEs: The Contingent Value of CEOs' Social Capital

Generating Business Referrals for SMEs: The Contingent Value of CEOs' Social Capital | Social networks within and across organizations | Scoop.it

This study examines how small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) chief executive officers' (CEOs) social capital (as measured by strength of ties and structural holes) can help them bring business to their firms through the spread of positive referrals. Based on a sample of 408 French SME CEOs, we find a direct effect of social capital.

Such effect is contingent on the CEO's personality, with social capital being most beneficial to CEOs with low levels of conscientiousness. CEOs' social ties facilitate the distortion of information, thereby leading personal contacts to give referrals to and endorse a focal CEO, even in the presence of negative signals, such as low conscientiousness.

By all accounts, the frenzy and stress associated with many jobs today have had crippling effects on people's willingness to bring their best to work – a situation described by an industry commentator as “a perfect storm for disengagement.” Although many organizations have implemented programs to keep employees committed and productive, employee engagement remains at an all-time low.
