Not trading your happiness for money with Jardena London

We conducted a Q&A interview with Jardena London, Transformation Leader and Blogtoon Publisher at Rosetta Technology Group, around work-life balance, how employees embrace change and leadership.

 

Could you introduce yourself and what you do?
I like to say that I help work not suck, or said more politically correctly; I help organizations become healthy, productive and fun. Most of my work is in the space of Business Agility, but I also publish a daily blogtoon and I’m doing some work on increasing the Gender Quotient in the workplace.

Uber or Black Cab… by Kelly Swingler

Uber or Black Cab – Which is Your HR Function?

I’ve used Uber a few times, but have to say I’ve been a Black Cab kind of girl for years and there is something familiar about them that makes me stick with them.

Yesterday though I started to think differently.  My last few trips to London have involved a Cab ride, none of the drivers have known where to go and the cost, compared to what an Uber would have been almost double the cost and the card machines haven’t been working so cash has been paid, one driver even dropping me at a cash machine.

6 Stages of Change Management by Rose Padfield

Last month, you learned about the award-winning change management project I ran recently together with my associates. This month, you’ll discover how you can apply our unique six-stage methodology to your own change programme, with its focus on yourself and others (know yourself and know/support others).

Note that it’s important to accomplish each phase before you move on to the next, as each step builds on the previous one – if you skip or skim over a phase it’ll come back and bite you!

 

Do People Really Care About HR? By Ankita Poddar

It is a non-standard question, isn’t it? Most similar sentences have a subject other than HR inserted at the end– usually water, coal or another precious resource; a resource that has proven to be invaluable and close to extinction. After all, what has HR done for the world to care about it? It is just another profession and a non P&L one at that.

What are you on? It's definitely NOT the end of the road for employee performance reviews by Max Blumberg

It simply doesn't feel right to miss out on the current trend of writing about the death of employee performance reviews - if nothing else, they seem to make for such catchy headlines. Just recently, for example, Accenture claimed it was doing away with annual performance appraisals, and not to be left behind, Josh Bersin, Deloitte and PWC are suggesting we'll soon see radical changes in this domain. However, in the words of Andrew Lloyd Webber: "I've got news for you" and my news is: organisations will never do away with performance reviews because if they do, they will fail.

Is 2018 the year of employee experience? by Jeff Wellstead

If you had to create a list of the companies you’d like to work for – how would you go about assessing which ones would be the best fit for you? 

The problem with things like the Best Place to Work surveys is that they tend to look at tick box criteria: how well people are paid, their benefits, training budgets, if they comply with employment legislation etc. What they don’t capture are the more important things that are harder to measure, like whether someone’s work is intrinsically interesting or meaningful.
