Waiting for Psychological Safety by Vivienne Edgecombe

In her pioneering work in 1999, Amy Edmondson identified the concept of Psychological Safety - a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.  She discovered that the best-functioning teams are the ones where people feel safe to speak up - to make mistakes, to own up, to share ideas and offer opinions.  Since then, organisations such as Google have done their own studies whose findings support this, showing that this one factor could make the biggest difference in how a team and an organisation performs.

The Key to Strategic HR: Process Automation

Technology has changed pretty much everything in the modern business world, but how can it transform the customer experience, productivity and efficiency at work? While it’s true that HR processes are still very manual, document-driven and ripe for digitalisation, to transform them is often more complex than other business unit processes within your organisation.

Time Out - It's Not Me First, It's Me Too! by Kelly Swingler

Putting our people first is vital for their wellbeing, and aside from the fact that it makes good business sense, it's the right thing to do. With stress, burnout, mental health issues, health problems, debt, and addiction on the increase, a stressful workplace or toxic workplace culture can play a huge role in the mental, emotional and physical health of our people.

This year’s theme was “The Bridge Between Work and Technology” – although Unleash is focused on HR tech, the conference also features wide review and discussions on key trends and issues at the forefront of the industry. This year's focus was on data privacy and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation which is being reviewed by the US Congress as a potential template for a renewed effort on protecting people’s data.
