Building 2020 WorkPlace Skills

SKMBT_C36014012211000

We were delighted to see the sythesized 2020 Workplace Engagement Model inside this useful book by Jeanne C. Meister and Karie Willyerd entitled The 2020 Workplace / How Innovative Companies Attract, Develop and Keep Tomorrow’s Employees Today.

We would recomend this book to our Humantific readers, many of whom are organizational leaders working on building next generation innovation capacity.

Anything related to envisioning tomorrow is useful in the context of imagining future organizational change and many organizations digest large quantities of such insights as part of their everyday sensemaking, some more formally than others.

We consistently see Collaboration, Authenticity and Innovation playing important roles in many future workplace visions.

Many organizational leaders are not waiting around for all the confirming statistics to be in, but rather are actively working on building this 2020 capacity NOW!

“The 2020 Workplace Engagement Model

Collaboration: This calls for interwoven work, internally & externally.

Authenticity: Core values and transparency demonstrate genuineness

Personification: Employees want tailor-made career paths.

Innovation: In a changing world, new thinking enables sustainability.

Social Connection: No one is an island. The future workplace will be based on sharing and forming a community.”
