The Human Capital Institute is offering a webinar sponsored by Cisco that will air on April 26, 2011; details below:
Social, economic, environmental, and technological forces continuously transform the relationship between organizations and employees. The traditional “workplace” is disappearing, courtesy of globalization, communications, the consumerization of IT, and recent market upheavals. In its place is a “workspace” that is more social, more virtual and more mobile. This new workspace is also more transitory, as employees skeptical of lifetime employment find themselves increasingly joined by contingent staff and outsourcing partners. Also – given the ascent of a new generation of workers raised in this connected, global reality – we can no longer rely on old assumptions on how work best gets done.
The type of agility necessary to achieve breakthrough levels of innovation and growth will rely on people and the ability of the organization to leverage the network of relationships that inter-connect them. Leadership teams must develop collaborative operating models responsive to market and stakeholder needs – including those of its “employees”. Such transformation creates an environment where people are managed not by sight, but by trust and commitment.
