Companies are becoming more reliant on their employee’s ability to thrive in a complex work environment where projects, processes, and business priorities are in a constant state of flux. With automation reaching its limits, employees need to expect the unexpected – to “figure out” the best way to handle exceptions – to self-synchronize their work with the activities of their colleagues – and make decisions collectively rather than waiting on top-down direction from management. In this “Organization Next” environment, employees must continually improve individual competencies, group work practices, and community relationships while becoming more skillful at cultivating and mobilizing their professional and personal networks.
However, an increasing number of workforce studies indicate that employees are becoming more detached and less passionate about their job, their employer, or both. Leadership teams, HR professionals, and strategists involved in business transformation initiatives are now investigating how new user experiences that leverage “gamification”, social networking, and “in-flow of work” learning helps deliver a more compelling workforce experience that encourages greater employee participation, community-building, and identification with the organization and its goals.
This webcast will examine the synergies when networks, learning, and “play” are applied to improve work practices and the workforce experience. If you are involved in HR, training, knowledge management, collaboration, E2.0, or projects focused on improving organizational effectiveness and business transformation, this webcast is for you.
