I hope you all took advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed some quality time with family and friends. Or did you spend the weekend shopping on what has become Black Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday?
We had a shortened week this week because of the break. Here is a quick recap if you missed anything.
Monday covered a rapidly growing trend in today’s workplace – the use of analytics and connectedness to manage employee performance. There is no question that good analytical models can tell us a lot about behavior. The question is whether the intrusion on privacy and morale is worth it.
Tuesday we talked about the concept of flow. This is the sense of “being in the zone” where time and effort pass by as easy as that extra piece of pumpkin pie. When a user experience engages flow, it is amazing what can happen.
Then finally Wednesday we talked about a new way for experienced employees to get back into the workplace after an extended absence. A returnship is like an internship but tailored (hopefully) to the different needs of the experienced pro rather than the entry level employee who needs some experience.
