Two statements jumped out at me in the Towers Watson 2012 Global Workforce Study that involved 32000 people from 29 countries:
“Companies are running 21st century businesses with 20th century workplace practices and programs.”
“It’s essential for organizations and their leaders to have a clear understanding of what matters to employees, and why and how that affects their productivity and behavior on the job.”
I wrote my paper “The most significant shift you can make in your business is the one from performance management to performance leadership", to inspire you to ensure your people practices are 21st century and to fully unleash the talent gathering in your workplace.
Be the difference you want to see in the world.
