• Work teams within departments are all too common in organizations. People who work best together and easily gel into a single unified team form such groups. The benefits of having such teams in your organization are aplenty. Furthermore, those benefits increase tenfold when they are dedicated or motivated to stay loyal to your company. Such teams promote feelings of positivity at the workplace and display increased productivity, creativity and energy. For organizations of any size, the benefit of motivating their staff and their various teams can be invaluable and can bring higher profits and better performance. It is easy to think that the paycheck is all the motivation your staff needs to be motivated but that cannot be farther from the truth.

    Employees require more than just that as incentives to keep performing. Understanding why this is a necessity can help you understand its benefits.

  • Recruitment has proven to be a challenging process and an ordeal over the pandemic. Furthermore, it has been true in every other industry, especially in technology. The obstacles are obvious. It is not easy to gauge a candidate’s cultural fit with your team when you are working remotely. This has been amplified by the increase in demand for skills such as software development, digital and data science coupled with the blatant shortage of skills in the same pool. Studies show that 25% of the tech leaders find it harder to find suitably skilled and experienced talent, of which 90% are waiting for more university-educated candidates.

    The shortage of labour suitable skills is nothing new. The demand has always outweighed the supply and will continue to do so in the coming years. Therefore, companies should come up with creative solutions to retain their existing talents and recruitment strategies.

  • We have seen how there is a paradigm shift, in many senses, in the way we communicate at the workplace. Driving that change from the front is the millennial generation. When a person belonging to the latest generation joins a company, they do not appreciate generic company-wide communications. Such one-way communications are more likely to be intentionally overlooked and neglected by them and to some extend some of the previous generations as well, who are following the trend. However, the millennials entered the working population roughly at the beginning of the century. That means they have been integrated and spread across all echelons of the corporate world in the last 20 years and they are in the Executive positions now.

    So what are the things they are going to implement and the things they can expect?
