The digital economy is shaping the aspects of society, including the way people interact, the economic landscape, the future of work and business transformation empowering with fast-changing technologies.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is distinguishable from the others because it is where humans meet the cyber world; where technology and people are not distinct, not separate. The Fourth Industrial Revolution will change not only what we do but also who we are. It will affect our identity, role, responsibility, a way of leadership and our mindsets.

Latest trends in employee mood measurement

Employee Mood measurement is evolving

Illustration: Studio Fee Overbeeke

Not too long ago the main instrument to gather data about the mood of the employees in the different parts of the organisation was the annual employee engagement survey. Once per year, or one every two-years, a long questionnaire was distributed to the employees. 50-70% of the employees responded.

The answers were analysed and often months later the reports were ready. Management discussed the outcomes, and a summary was communicated to the employees. Focus groups discussed the outcomes and made some suggestions for management. And so on, and so on. Even writing the complete process down, takes too long. Employee mood measurement has fortunately moved on. Nine trends we see.

So what’s this “Brexit” thing we’ve all been hearing about then?

The HR Cat (Sarah Murray): Back in 2016, in order to retain the support of nationalists within the British Conservative party, Prime Minister David Cameron offered the UK a referendum on the UK’s EU membership. The people voted “Leave” by a margin of 52%/48%. The current Prime Minister, Theresa May, subsequently activated Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, and the UK is now set to leave the EU on March 29th 2019 as an automatic operation of law.

Oh I see. So why is this in the news so much?

Healthy @ Work – New trends in corporate well-being programmes

Are employers caring for the mental wellbeing of their employees? If not, perhaps it’s time to reconsider well-being programmes and extending them from yoga classes and smoothie bars. Latest reports from the UK and Germany show, that the majority of sickness absence in organisations are motivated by psychological or mental health issues, rather than physical sickness. A 2017 study in Germany by the AOK, the federation of social security secretariats, has shown that out of 12.5 million employees that took a sick-leave following a life-event, 79% had to take time off work due to mental health and emotional problems. In the UK a staggering 70 million work days are lost each year due to mental health problems, costing employers approximately £2.4 billion per year.

The continuous evolution of the workplace

In an e-mail to his Tesla employees sent in April this year, CEO Elon Musk instructed colleagues to “walk out of meetings if you are not adding any value”. He goes on to say, that it is not rude to walk out of a meeting, rather it is rude to stay and waste somebody else’s time. He is not the only mogul introducing policies to help employees navigate the modern world of work with an intention to increase productivity. Jeff Bezos of amazon has introduced the “weirdest meeting culture you will ever encounter” and ended PowerPoint presentations, and now requires the employee to prepare a 6-page narrative memo, a sort of story-telling, which meeting participants spend 30 minutes reading and taking in at the beginning of the meeting – in silence.
