Over the past year we have been absorbing information from business globally on the learnings from 2020 and what they mean for the future world of work. Whilst a lot has been talked about and there have been some compelling solutions, we’ve compiled what we believe are the key trends that reflect a neuroscience based brain advantage to share with you:
The key learning has been how most companies surprised themselves with how swiftly they enabled their staff to work from home which for some meant on a global scale and over a few days.
Their take-out from this was they were able to make it happen very swiftly as layers of decision making and red-tape was cut through, exposing them to the reality that needless meetings and hierarchies were a blocker to success and not as believed the safety net for risk adverse behaviour.
Another learning was that HR were involved right away putting their skills firmly centre stage and being engaged as partners and not just as a function.
The learning of transparency and simplicity is a fundamental need that our brains thrive on as it creates trust, openness and sends safety signals. Our brains function at their best. This way of working removes uncertainty, potential social fallouts and politics, reduces stress through uncertainty and creates common a purpose and therefore community. It’s pretty obvious what that means for engagement and purpose.
