Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, April 9, 2013 4:54 AM

Great post by Josh Bersin at Forbes, referring to the latest Deloitte Human Capital Trends 2013 report. The report states that HR should think more like economists.

 

If the main challenge is to fill the talent and skills gap in the workforce, Bersin argues that "this is a 'supply and demand' problem." HR can learn a lot from economists to gain new perspectives on its talent "markets" and organizational "economies".

HR Departments are not transparent in their functioning. Here are things that you should know about HR, which they will not admit openly.

8. HR Matters!

HR is responsible for annual performance appraisals, as well as employee welfare and management. Their opinion on you, as an employee, does matter. One should have a positive relationship with HR. After all, you do not want HR to overlook you the next time there is a possibility of a promotion, or a pay hike.

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify

Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies.

Kudos's curator insight, April 5, 2:45 PM

I have always been a big fan of simplicity.

 

It seems to be human nature and the desire of MBA's to want to complicate things by trying to measure everything with the false illusion we can then improve and tweak things to make a thousand process improvements that matter. In the end, we often measure things that do not really matter in the big picture. Think of all the layers of middle management that get added to manage, measure and track things that do not matter.  

 

Measuring some things is essential. Sales, Profits, Engagement. Those are the only measures that matter at the end of the day. And processes are are also essential but like the old saying - everything in moderation.

 

I liked the key message that Cooperation is secret to success. We build walls with too many processes. We need to keep people close to one another and aware of their interdependency and effect on one another so they think about how their actions and output effect other peoples outcomes and output.

 

If you connect people to solve problems through cooperation, you will get innovation and the the results you are looking for. Instead of trying to make everything easier by adding processes and layers, it better to make things harder by forcing people to cooperative verses work around one another with only their goals and objective in mind.

 

I see this in the struggle between design. programming and admin (Sales, Customer Service) all the time in the agencies and companies I have been part of.

 

- Programming wants things to be efficient and streamlined based on their sensibilities. 

- Design wants to create exceptional user experiences and artful design based on their sensibilities.

- Admins wants things to be simple and effective based on their sensibilities.

 

People always want things done their way based on their sensibilities and that can lead to low cooperation.

 

I will often hear when I ask for something - "that is not possible". Then then next questions I ask is "do you mean impossible or difficult" and the answer is always difficult. Then their is a discussion, some cooperation and often a compromise. The outcome is a better product, better service and 9 times out of 10 difficult was not so difficult after all.

 

If you keep everyone close to the product, customer and  one anther they will cooperate and compromise and that keeps things more simple.

 

The only problem with simple is... it is hard to keep things simple. Back to human nature an MBA's. 

 

In the spirit of keeping things simple, every employee manual in the world only needs these three words.

 

"Make Good Decisions"

 

Only if it was that simple. :)

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | The future of HR | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.


Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.
