Organizations that Care about their People go the Distance

The workplace has undergone significant change in the last ten years. Jobs have changed as a result, and some roles' hiring criteria have changed as well. Although 'hard skills'(technical knowledge, education) continue to be crucial, 'soft skills', which support hard skills and education, are now proving to be just as valuable. I'd like to use this space on the page to explain why developing soft skills is the most under appreciated phenomenon in corporate settings. The environment has indeed changed to one where 'Innovate or die' is the only option with the digital age soaring and screaming at the top of its lungs. However, that does not imply that we should disregard our morals and principles. Political and regulatory pressures may compel you to adopt a particular environmentally and socially responsible image, but internal organisational dynamics are crucial.

I feel like one of the issues with this entire discussion is that the process isn't given enough credit and the goal is being stressed too much. We don't put enough emphasis on how to apply these admirable ideals to business operations and procedures. This doesn't make much sense given how vague the principles' content is.

We simply cannot expect to arrive if we do not know where we need to go. It is a process, but it takes time. Remember that managing people is more important than managing processes. Additionally, people must be nurtured and educated rather than managed. A business like Netflix is frequently used as an illustration of a people friendly organization. Over 16 million people have viewed their 2009 'manifesto', which is actually a 120+ page PowerPoint slideshow that was just updated: On their website, 'roadmap' is stated in clear terms: Encourage everyone to make decisions on their own, to share information openly, broadly, and purposefully, to be incredibly honest with one another, to hire only the best employees, and to avoid rules. This is difficult to duplicate, but even the smallest progress counts. This edition highlights businesses and organizations that support businesses from the ground up with their services and solutions and foster an environment conducive to success.
