Spotlight: Productivity traps
Typically a business spends 70% of its operating expense on people. In a knowledge-based or service business people’s days are built around working together whether that be by email and messaging, in meetings and presentations and through documents. In this context productivity is hard to gauge. Rather than industrial measures of output and time spent in specific activities it is the quality of the interactions that matters. ”Ultimately, Effectiveness will replace productivity as the standard measure of growth“ (Karen Lojeski, the research director for the IIIP). “Just as customer feedback has transformed the customer experience, employee feedback is transforming the employee experience” (Josh Bersin – Bersin by Deloitte). “Systems of Record+Systems of Engagement+Systems of Intelligence=Next Generation of Enterprise Software” (Marc Benioff, CEO Salesforce). OfficeSpark combines interaction analytics with “employee voice” to maximize the return on human capital and improve employee experience.

You have to attend because you will miss something important otherwise….but really. Does it have to take so long and at this time of day? Do we need to repeat the same conversations as last[…]
As a manager, you need to give your people your time and you probably allocate some to meet individually with each of them on a regular 1:1 basis. It provides you with a chance to provide guidance and hear how each person is going, and an opportunity for them to share what’s on their mind[…]
