Low pay isn't causing people to quit their jobs — toxic workplace culture is

Steve Pfost/Newsday RM via Getty Images Compensation isn't the biggest factor in an employee deciding to quit, a new analysis found. Toxic workplace culture is 10.4 times more likely to contribute to an employee leaving. Retail workers are the most likely to quit, but firms like SpaceX have also had a high quit-rate. Workers are quitting their jobs in record numbers. But what's nudging them out the door isn't low pay — it's toxic workplace culture. That's according to a ne...

One-Third of Businesses Surveyed Plan to Increase Their Use of Nonemployee Labor Over the Next 18-24 Months

Deloitte and the MIT Sloan Management Review recently released Workforce Ecosystems: A New Strategic Approach to the Future of Work.    This research study found that most executives and managers today "consider employees and other workers who create value for the enterprise — including contractors, service providers, gig workers, and even software bots — to be part of their workforce."

What 4 New Skills Underpin Digital Business Success?

Digital skills alone are not enough for IT effectiveness. Business success demands a technology workforce that is skilled in new ways of working. This new game is about future-proofing the IT humanware. It requires interactional competencies that respond to role complexity and the kind of ambidextrous competency that few of the workforce can currently muster. (**See references below.) Business studies, even in journals like the MIT Sloan Management Review, are more and more emphasizing the need ...

Can AI help us create a more diverse workforce or will it reinforce the status quo?

If you’ve applied for a job at a large company in the last few years, there’s a good chance that an algorithm sorted your resume before a human being even saw it. Companies that make AI hiring algorithms are out to disrupt recruiting and hiring by making it faster and easier to find the “right” candidate. But what does that mean for applicants who are a good fit but don’t “check all the boxes”? And what does it mean for women and people of color who are historically underrepresented in many ind...

revisiting cooperation

“collaboration means ‘working together’. That’s why you see it in market economies. markets are based on quantity and mass. cooperation means ‘sharing’. That’s why you see it in networks. In networks, the nature of the connection is important; it is not simply about quantity and mass … You and I are in a network – but we do not collaborate (we do not align ourselves to the same goal, subscribe to the same vision statement, etc), we *cooperate*” —Stephen Downes When work requirements are relative...

React, respond, rebuild

This pandemic is having an immediate effect on almost every job and it's likely to have a longer-lasting impact in the years ahead. There's plenty of speculation around this topic but this article from Lynda Gratton in MIT Sloan Management Review is one of the most insightful ones I've read. The author refers to a survey response she got from one CEO who said their mantra is "React, respond, rebuild." It reminds me of the agile approach to software development and one of the keys to both is flex...

On Running an Office Like a Factory

I was recently browsing the archives of the MIT Sloan Management Review (as one does), when I came across a fascinating article from the Fall 2018 issue titled “Breaking Logjams in Knowledge Work.” The piece starts with a blunt observation: “If you work in an organization, you know what it’s like to have too much to do and not enough resources to do it.” This is not accidental: “…many leaders continue to believe that their organizations thrive when overloaded, often both creating pressure and r...

Even in the age of COVID-19, you need to stay focused on the customer

It’s easy to think, as we find ourselves in the midst of a truly unprecedented situation, that the rules of building a successful business have suddenly changed. While the world may be topsy-turvy at the moment, keeping your customer at the center of your business strategy is more important than ever. That means finding creative ways to engage with your customers and thinking deeply about what they need as the world changes before our eyes. As a small example on a local level, Pandemonium Books ...

How to Overcome the Struggles of Midlife

Fifty-six-year-old Steve Reinhardt had always thought himself resilient. But some strokes of bad luck left him with a serious confidence crisis. He’d spent 25 years as a senior marketing executive, but in the Great Recession he put his nest egg in the Bernie Madoff basket. A couple of years later, his wife was killed in a head-on car accident. Not knowing how to metabolize his grief and not wanting to burden his friends, he threw himself into his work and became the successful chief marketin...

“As a technologist…”

If two people are having a discussion about the resilience of the food chain, and one says, “as a farmer…” it’s likely that this statement carries some weight. The same goes for the opinion of an admiral if we’re talking about naval operations, or a copy editor if we’re talking about grammar. The question is: Why isn’t everyone already a technologist? Given that technology has been the defining cultural and economic driver of the last fifty years, why sign up to be a victim of what’s next?   Bon...

The importance of curiosity

Curiosity. It's the single most important characteristic I look for when interviewing someone. Does that mean I don't care about experience, character, etc.? Of course I do, but I believe a high level of curiosity is what distinguishes the top performers from the rest of the team.That's why I was intrigued when reading this article from MIT Sloan Management Review. Yes, it feels overly academic at times, but it hits on the critical points. I also love a couple of phrases used in it. First, "incu...

Digital Maturity or Digital Transformation?

Everyone’s working on digital transformation projects.  Much like ‘big data’ or ‘machine learning’, digital transformation is a phrase that you hear every day across just about every organization. The problem with digital transformation is that its not the end goal….you don’t set a goal of ‘being transformed’ especially when you’re looking at the digital space.  Rather, you set goals around engagement, conversion and revenue that are better / higher than what you have today.  You shouldn’t be f...

Joining forces in Europe to prepare for the future of work

Picture a pathologist leaning over a microscope, looking for cancerous cells in a sample. It’s hard, time-consuming work, yet also vitally important. But what if the microscope itself could give the doctor a second opinion, in real time? This kind of "virtual lab assistant" is no longer a distant concept; it's already here. The Augmented Reality Microscope for Cancer Detection, the subject of a Google research paper this spring, is a machine learning capability integrated into standard laborator...

The Lost Art of Thinking

On numerous occasions as a management consultant, I asked execs about how much time they took to think about process, innovation or strategy. Often, the response was that they didn’t have time to think. A couple said that they were paying me to do the thinking. A compliment, but very unwise. And I provided a very deliberate rationale for refusing that business opportunity. So how did we get to the place where managers don’t realize that thinking is part of their job? In a very thoughtful and fas...
