The Most important Document Ever To Come Out Of The Valley

The Most important Document Ever To Come Out Of The Valley | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Facebook’s No. 2 top dog, COO Sheryl Sandberg, recently said that Netflix’s company culture document “may well be the most important document ever to come out of the Valley.” The document, a bullet-point-happy PowerPoint, has become a cultural manifesto for the Internet’s economic epicenter, amassing over 3.2 million views on Slideshare.net.

More than simply a management guide, it’s a window into a philosophy that thrives on uncertainty, creativity, and trust — a blinding contrast to the hierarchical culture that dominated much of the 20th century workplace. To the extent that innovation and the Internet play a role in the modern workplace, it is a crystal ball into the future of daily life.

We’ve summarized the most telling principles below:

John @TalentedHR's insight:

Ruth Benedict was also the first “great anthropologist” cited by Martin Luther King, Jr.:

Human behavior is patterned. There exist within historically specific populations recurrences in both thought and behavior that are not contingent but structurally conditioned and that are, in turn, structuring.Those patternes are learned. Recurrences cannot be tied to a natural world within or outside the human body, but rather to constant interaction within specific populations. Structuration occurs through social transmission and symbolic coding with some degree of human consciousness.

Are You Unleashing Opportunities For Talent to Flourish?

Are You Unleashing Opportunities For Talent to Flourish? | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Attracting, retaining, and optimizing talent — and doing it successfully — is the new leadership call to action.

The quality and potential of your talent determines the productive capacity of your organization and will very likely correlate sharply with your potential for success and corporate profits.

Intangible talent assets like creativity, courage, commitment, persistence, passion, ingenuity, and knowledge may not show up anywhere on your financial statement, but they are characteristics that may ultimately determine the fate of your company.

Apple, Nike, and Google are exceptional corporate examples of this. What would these companies have become without the abundance of these traits among their workforces? What could your organization achieve if you also encouraged and developed this kind of talent?

Focused strategies generate better results
John @TalentedHR's insight:

leaders are realizing the equally abundant insights that are available from the full spectrum of stakeholders in the company — customers, suppliers, shareholders, channel partners, and the community in which they operate. Ignoring these other stakeholders is squandering an opportunity to access vitally important data that’s there for the asking.

This Is Generation Flux: Meet The Pioneers Of The New (And Chaotic) Frontier Of Business

This Is Generation Flux: Meet The Pioneers Of The New (And Chaotic) Frontier Of Business | Talented HR | Scoop.it

The business climate, it turns out, is a lot like the weather. And we've entered a next-two-hours era. The pace of change in our economy and our culture is accelerating--fueled by global adoption of social, mobile, and other new technologies--and our visibility about the future is declining. From the rise of Facebook to the fall of Blockbuster, from the downgrading of U.S. government debt to the resurgence of Brazil, predicting what will happen next has gotten exponentially harder. Uncertainty has taken hold in boardrooms and cubicles, as executives and workers (employed and unemployed) struggle with core questions: Which competitive advantages have staying power? What skills matter most? How can you weigh risk and opportunity when the fundamentals of your business may change overnight?.

Modern business is pure chaos. This series is about the people who are adapting to disruption, and succeeding.

Corporate Training: It's Hot Again

Corporate Training:  It's Hot Again | Talented HR | Scoop.it
This week Bersin by Deloitte launched the 2013 Corporate Learning Factbook, and the numbers are striking.US training organizations grew their spending by 12% last year,the highest growth rate in the last 8 years.

Why the high growth? Companies now realize that despite the high levels of unemployment in some locations, skills are hard to find. Jobs have become more specialized and even highly skilled professionals must continuously reinvent themselves. Plus, as recent research from McKinsey points out, educational institutions are not developing graduates who are immediately ready for work.

We have been studying the corporate training industry for over a decade, and it continues to change and evolve. Businesses spend more than $60 billion on training in the US alone, and more than 50% of all dollars go into technology, tools, coaching, and other "non-instructor led" solutions.

The e-learning industry is over $2 billion and growing, but has changed dramatically. Today employees want their training to include video, games, and a whole next generation experience. Much of our research shows that modern best-practice research focuses heavily on the "learner experience," and is highly tailored to the working environment of the employee. Training for sales people, for example, is integrated with the CRM system. Training for new hires is often delivered on mobile devices or integrated into social networks.

More Companies Are Outsourcing Their Human-Resources Work

More Companies Are Outsourcing Their Human-Resources Work | Talented HR | Scoop.it

It used to be that H.R. was a single, physical place that workers could visit — to pick up a form, ask a question, seek advice, lodge a complaint. Now if a company still has a stand-alone H.R. office, it’s probably much smaller than it used to be. If workers need help, they may have to call an “800” number, consult a Web portal or use a software program.

 

The outsourcing of H.R. has accelerated over the last decade and will continue to do so, said Lisa Rowan, a research vice president at IDC, the market research firm. While some companies may entrust their H.R. needs to a single outside firm, it’s more common to parcel out functions to a range of outside providers, she said.

 

Outsourcing allows companies to offload work that isn’t part of their core business. It also saves money. But some H.R. experts are concerned that the trend has gone too far, to the point that employees are suffering in areas like training and career development, and that employers are losing crucial business opportunities.

The End of Sourcing Is Near … the Remaining Recruiting Challenge Is Selling - ERE.net

The End of Sourcing Is Near … the Remaining Recruiting Challenge Is Selling - ERE.net | Talented HR | Scoop.it

With the growth of the Internet, social media, and employee referral programs, finding talent is becoming amazingly easy. In recruiting, we call finding talent “sourcing,” and for nearly three decades sourcing has been the most important but difficult aspect of recruiting. After all, if you can’t find great talent, you certainly can’t interview and hire them.

But finding top talent among professionals is now becoming painless to the point where almost any firm can do it successfully. The time is rapidly approaching were nearly every professional and working individual in the developed world can be found by a recruiting function.

Finding Talent Is Easy Because Everyone Is Now “Visible”

Finding talent for recruiting purposes is now quite easy because almost everyone can be found through their “footprint” on some combination of electronic sites. You can be found if you have:

A LinkedIn profileA Facebook, Google+ or a similar friends page where you “like” or follow a firmA Twitter accountAn email addressA phone number that appears in a directory or on a profileA blog or personal websiteComments on chat rooms or online forumsPhotos on a photo page A membership in a professional associationA professional license or government registrationA subscription to a news, RSS feed, or a magazineA signed in visit to knowledge, news, and information websites Won an award or have been recognized publicly for your workA credit card or have a mortgageExamples of your writing and work visible onlineYour resume or bio has been visible online or on a job board

Talent Management's Perfect Storm - Forbes

Talent Management's Perfect Storm - Forbes | Talented HR | Scoop.it

The organizational sea on which talent management sails has been rising for the past few years. As we enter 2013, the waves are peaking, the water froths, and the boats bouncing on it creak and groan as they buckle under the strain.

Talent management, especially in large multinationals, is being challenged from every direction. Long-established processes are straining under the pressure as the modern workplace prepares their redundancy notices. Proprietary systems, ad hoc software and yesterday’s HR practitioners stare blankly into the New Year and prepare to raise their white flags. ERP, technology and talent management vendors willingly leap into the churning waters and emerge as consolidated entities as another wave of mergers and acquisitions sweeps across the choppy surface. Even research houses and industry media are jumping in.

It has been building for the past few years and will most likely herald its full arrival in 2013: a perfect storm of out-dated organizational practices, new mindsets about what really adds value to business performance and the maturation of social, mobile and cloud technologies that enable the transformation. The last nails are being hammered into the coffin of yesterday’s approach to talent management.

Weekly Wrap: The State of HR Today? By One Account, It May be Picking Up | Talented HR | Scoop.it

A New Year always seems to bring a lot of new surveys and studies, but this one with Chief HR officers has some pretty interesting findings and insights on first glance.

Titled the 2012 Chief HR Officer Data Survey, it comes from the Consero Group, a company that describes itself as “an international leader in creating high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives.” I’m not terribly familiar with Consero, but the top-line finding they were touting from the study certainly jumped out at me:

“According to the survey, Fortune 1000 corporations are increasing investment in HR staffing and increasing overall HR budgets”

Over 60 percent saw their HR staff increase

Yes, that got my attention, and here are some of the other key findings:

HR Magazine - Employers need to think differently about L&D if they want more innovative workers

HR Magazine - Employers need to think differently about L&D if they want more innovative workers | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Learning and development is big business. Even with budget squeezes, about $135 billion is spent training employees in the USA every year, while in the UK, training resources averaging £276 are allocated to every worker. But how many of these billions actually improve the workplace, with skills transferred to everyday jobs?

Organisational leaders are often left frustrated by the apparent ineffectiveness of costly training initiatives. 

Could this be fixed by thinking more about the needs of the people attending learning sessions? Our research shows that those responsible for staff training typically spend more time selecting what they believe is appropriate workshop content than thinking about the needs of the people attending. When this happens, training and development approaches focus on skills and behaviour instead of what drives behaviour and what employees need and feel during the learning process. The underlying belief seems to be that learning is solely a cognitive activity and not an ongoing process that is greatly influenced by the employee's emotions and personality.

We need an innovative paradigm for training and development.....

Breaking Out of the “Old” HR: Maybe It’s Time For Culture Development

Breaking Out of the “Old” HR: Maybe It’s Time For Culture Development | Talented HR | Scoop.it

Human Resources has a reputation for being a department of policy enforcers.

While it might seem intuitive that the role of HR would be to serve the employee as a customer, this isn’t usually the reality. Instead, HR is most often seen as being responsible for protecting the interests of the business — sometimes at the expense of the employee.

According to Anita Grantham, VP of Culture Development at Infusionsoft, “HR is where dreams go to die.” So why is it that even in companies fully committed to culture HR is seen as a necessary evil?

As organizations continue to outsource the payroll and benefits function of HR and the trend toward organizational culture driving performance and engagement continues, it makes sense to assign a team to focus specifically on Culture Development.

What is Culture Development?
