My links of the week (weekly)


  • “Employment experts believe that working the traditional nine-to-five could soon become a thing of the past because of technological advances and changes to people’s working patterns.

    Workers will no longer be going to a traditional office, logging on to their PC and picking up the phone. Attitudes among employees will also shift alongside these technological and social changes, with many people in the future not wanting to be tied to one working environment.”

  • “Tremendous forces are radically reshaping the world of work as we know it. Disruptive innovations are creating new industries and business models and destroying old ones. New technologies, data analytics and social networks are having a huge impact on how we communicate, collaborate and work. Many of the roles and job titles of tomorrow will be ones we’ve not even thought of yet.”

  • “A new study by Softchoice, a Toronto, Ontario-based technology solutions and managed services provider, confirmed unified communications (UC) and collaboration tools have the power to accelerate productivity, bring people together and increase employee engagement. However, most UC implementations fail because employees are left out of the process, the research found.”

  • “Up to 87.7 percent of America’s workforce is not able to contribute to their full potential because they don’t have passion for their work. Less than 12.3 percent of America’s workforce possesses the attributes of worker passion. This “passion gap” is important because passionate workers are committed to continually achieving higher levels of performance.”

  • “What exactly is worker passion and why is it important to firms? Worker passion, different from employee satisfaction, denotes a strong desire to continually improve performance. More than being satisfied with their current job, passionate employees constantly seeking to stimulate new thinking and creativity.”

  • “La grande force de ce livre est de proposer un modèle d’évaluation de la maturité digitale de l’entreprise. Bien sûr il n’est pas le seul, comme celui d’Altimitergroup publié en 2013 (cité par les auteurs, ils en pointent d’autre aussi), mais ce dernier va plus loin dans le détail. En cela il peut-être assez ardue à lire d’une traite, mais il a le mérite de poser les principaux points (les cinq leviers du livre) et de rentrer dans les détails des mesures qui y sont liées.”
