THE PRODUCTIVITY PREDICAMENT … EXPLAINED
THREE BOOKS AND A BLOG
If you’re worried that your productivity is not good enough – it’s been getting more and more difficult to sustain for everyone – it may well be partly down to workplace disruption. From top to bottom in the employee hierarchy, employers today typically have a very high rate of jobs change. In at least 50 years it’s never been higher, which means there are several new big issues to address.
There’s little continuity, huge re-employment costs, little or no corporate inheritance, a loyalty deficit among employees, a corporate culture that’s constantly being diluted, a disorientated employee base that has to deal with an ever-changing market environment and equally shifting corporate circumstances and – significantly - the widespread breakdown in the traditional way most progress is achieve, i.e. organically, that is one experience on another.
What’s happening is that everything costs more, with little or no apparent benefit.
If you recognise this in your business or institution, you’re suffering the downside effects of the FLEXIBLE LABOUR MARKET, the arrival of endemic CORPORATE AMNESIA and poorer DECISION-MAKING across the jobs spectrum. Another description for it is that you’re experiencing the corporate equivalent of ALZHEIMERS. It’s no friend of productivity.
