Why you should ditch your "staff" immediately

It’s now a well-known fact amongst companies and business leaders that the creation of opportunities and paths for career progression is key to business success, whether that’s measured financially or culturally. People-centric thinking is (finally) being recognised as an imperative to providing a great service - no matter what industry you’re in - helping a business to innovate and thrive.

The words “salary negotiation” can dry the mouth of the most confident person, but renegotiating your package with your existing boss or coming to an agreement with a new employer needn’t be terrifying.

Employee engagement in the digital world

Corporate attention is alive with buzzwords and digital transformation initiatives that promise innovation, optimisation and personalisation. But, while they’re focused on transforming their output, of a product or service they offer, a customer they need to service or acquire and a competitor that could come from off their radar, what they’re not thinking about is how a digital strategy can transform the one thing critical to building and sustaining business value – their people.

Industries and careers will indeed change, in some cases dramatically, but rather than making us all redundant robots will more likely do what has always been promised of them: remove the drudgery of admin tasks and enable people to undertake more fulfilling and productive work.
