It is time for a mid year workforce innovation break! Are you ready to refresh and recalibrate your brain?
This midyear workforce innovation blog post review links to the top 5 blog posts that readers find relevant and valuable. Make the workplace more collaborative, productive and profitable, in the process.
It is far too easy to get caught up in the tunnel vision of doing our jobs. As a result, productivity and profitability only are half as effective as they could be, if we collaborated. And I’m talking not only about collaborating with other members of our department or our professional discipline. These are the folks with whom we are most comfortable.
Instead, consider what happens to the quality of output when we reach across departmental boundaries and collaborate with people in other divisions and departments. You know. The people who intimidate us and stretch the boundaries of our professional comfort levels.
As a Professional of Worth, target continuous collaborative workforce innovation. Start with one person. Then, expand to include one team and, next, one department that decides to do one project differently. The collaborative effect becomes cascading and builds across the organization. Everyone gets to the finish line together!
Enjoy these top 5 collaborative workforce innovation and engagement picks from readers.
