Today, HR plays a much broader role in the strategic goals of a company. These following improvements can help your HR department meet your company goals.

    The Future of Work is Chaos

    March 8, 2017 | By: | In: Videos

    If we want to unleash human potential, we need to accelerate it by creatively harnessing chaos. A practical example of this is a playground: kids are playful and chaotic because they have defined structures and beautiful systems driving their development. Work should be no different. Let’s start inventing new playgrounds to accelerate humans in the world. Claire Burge is the CEO of This is Productivity. Part adventure seeker, part nerd, part psychologist, part technologist.

    March 2, 2017 | By: | In: Organization & Culture, Videos

    In his talk at TEDx Koeln, Heiko Fischer builds a strong case for turning Human Resources on its head by enabling employees to become resourceful humans instead. He argues that businesses should be designed around a network of entrepreneurial teams contributing autonomously to the best interest of its customers. Fischer’s company, Resourceful Humans was awarded the Management Innovation Award for enabling democratic entrepreneurship at HAUFE. RH combines its maverick management framework with cutting edge networking technology like aiRH, to optimise work environments for people and products.

    Many executives talk a lot about innovation, but they don’t really know how to make it happen. A corporate innovation team asks themselves: How do we “educate” our executives on innovation management and develop stronger corporate innovation capabilities together?

    Supporting Innovation with Autonomy and Accountability

    January 30, 2017 | By: | In: Organization & Culture

    Innovation tends to thrive in an environment where there are less bureaucratic restraints and an appetite for calculated risk. However, without a structured management system in place, experimentation can go awry and great ideas risk falling by the wayside. This is where accountability and autonomy can provide the essential framework to support the innovation process to its full potential.

    How to Engage Team Members from Different Branches

    Employees located in the same office generally have no lack of interaction and can discuss their projects and demanding tasks together any time. But those who work in different branches and different cities may face real problems with team work. The same happens with those who work remotely and don’t have a physical office. Among the growing number of startups along with big international organizations this problem is growing. Roughly 87% of organizations admit that engagement is one of their top challenges that should be addressed in a proper manner.

    A Closer Look at the Three Skill Sets that Enable Innovation

    October 10, 2016 | By: | In: Enabling Factors

    In our previous posts, we’ve made two major points. One: innovation is vital for the long-term survival of any business. And two: a handful of crazy ideas won’t cut the mustard. Successful innovation is a complex process that requires a whole lot more than just riotous creativity. Based on academic research, and in close collaboration with professor Frederik Anseel (Ghent University), we’ve defined three innovation profiles: ideators, champions and implementers. Each of these personas has a crucial part to play in what we like to call ‘innovation dream teams’. What makes them unique and why do you need all three? Let’s take a closer look.

    Are Results Based Work Environments the Future or Fantasy?

    June 23, 2016 | By: | In: Organization & Culture

    Results-based work environments, also known as results-only work environments (ROWE) aim to increase productivity by giving employees the freedom to work in the manner that suits them best as long as they produce results. The old paradigm of coming in to work at a set time and leaving at a set time hasn’t been the standard for quite some time. Employees regularly have to work long hours, and there is research that shows these long hours may be better spent working from home. The Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College notes that this shift represents a dramatic change from the traditional 40-hour work week.
