New research from HOK explores the challenges and opportunities facing the tech sector today."
A new report from HOK is chocked full of information about workplace trends in the tech sector. It's 81 pages includes information about space allocation and mix, workspace size, utilization, costs, amenities, expansion strategies, distributed work, future outlooks, plus 10 case studies.
Start-up Ambit is offering an interesting entrant to the HR technology field: an app that could help confront modern communication challenges.
Wouldn't it be great to know if your workplace change improved the quality of conversations? The technology from this Stanford-spawned could help you do just that. It can monitor and report on who speaks the most or least in meetings, how fast or slowly they speak, whether they are verbose or to the point, the role of rank or cultural background, and it can even infer from their tone of voice whether the speaker is fearful, confident, analytical and more.
While Ambit is currently positioned as a learning and coaching tool to help people communicate better, it may just have a role to play in measuring the impact of workplace change. Please use it responsibly!
Gartner research shows innovation isn’t about being connected, it’s about having the right connections
From Gartner's CHRO Quarterly magazine: "Network Innovation in the Digital Age"
Contrary to popular opinion, Gartner's research shows individual innovation strategies (i.e. hackathons, personal innovation-time) and even dedicated agile innovation teams move the needle on innovation effectiveness (IE) by only 6%. By contrast, network innovation increases IE by 24%. Organizations can foster this by helping people create and leverage the connections they need to socialize their ideas, generate buzz, penetrate silos, and gain executive support.
