AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 24, 2013 9:07 PM

From the article:

 

“Employees can be highly engaged with their job, and not their employer,” Right Management senior consultant, Colin Couzin-Wood, told the audience at a breakfast meeting in Melbourne this morning. “That means they are looking for the next opportunity and it is very likely to be outside your organisation.”

 

Engaged workforces are valuable, the survey finds. Workplaces that score high on employee engagement have 44% higher retention, and are 33% more profitable, 56% higher in customer loyalty and 50% more productive.

You can easely join entrepreneurial networks and the knowledge of “how to” is spread all over the internet for free.

The Real Key to Productivity? Sleep

The Real Key to Productivity? Sleep | Software Development Productivity | Scoop.it

There are sound physiological reasons for why staying awake longer means poorer productivity. When you become fatigued, your brain's thalamus becomes more active, expending energy just to keep you awake. At the same time, your parietal and occipital lobes, which are responsible for processing sensory data, lose glucose, making it harder to concentrate and make accurate judgements about the world around you. When you are low on sleep, you are bound to have a bad temper, bad diet and make bad decisions.
