In this new age people have almost constantly access to their social networks. They use all kinds of cool apps/websites to get the latest and best information to make informed decisions. Going to your workspace can sometimes be feeling like you go back in time. Looking at an outdated sharepoint to get your information, scroll in huge databases to find the colleague with the right skills, etc.
Employee in control
Employees of the future
Nowadays, usually your boss tells you how to improve your skills. This is not only demotivating, but also it decreases ownership for development. Content and tools are often not tailored to individual needs and not easy to access. This results in slightly motivated people using content and tools that don’t really help them. From a management point of view: you have no insight in the talents that are present.
The role of current management and HR is to break with this past!! Management should boost employee performance by treating them like internal customers. This means as much as delivering personalized content
puting the employee in control of his/her development and listen to what employees need to make their work easier.
