Trends in the Workplace: Gamification in the Enterprise

By Susan Poser

wow

Gaming techniques encourage employees to adopt habits that benefit the company while creating a fun atmosphere. I used to think that gaming was something for millennials, 18- to 27-year-olds who grew up gaming on their computers, earning badges, and competing with others to progress to a more challenging level. However, I find that I’m getting caught up in these activities before I realize what’s happening.

By Bertrand Dussert

wow

The Fortune 500 is an impressive list—at any point in time it includes some of the largest and most profitable companies in the world. Unfortunately, not all of them are the most adaptable and agile. In fact, if you could magically transport yourself into the future, you’d likely find that nearly half of the organizations now on the list would be gone within 10 years.

Redefining Social: Get Your Head Out of Your Apps!

By Christine Mellon

wow

Although shamelessly pilfered from a current Denver road sign on distracted driving, this is a perfect directive to start a timely conversation around “social” and HR. Like much of the world, the HR discipline has succumbed to the siren call of internet-bred social tools and sites.

Edinburgh, A Place to Learn About Millennials

By Andy Campbell

wow

Now Edinburgh is quite a lovely city and it was really interesting to spend the weekend there recently for two unrelated but somehow associated reasons. I have visited the city a number of times and it holds a special place in my affections. My daughter studied there and had a great time. She did well, left with a good degree and got an excellent job as a result, working as a marketing graduate for a market leading CPG company. But more of that later.
