As Europe endures a heat wave, employers are feeling the heat too with the Great Resignation continuing to shift control to employees. In response, companies are looking for new ways to attract and keep staff. This is producing a new wave of ideas and lateral thinking about the relationship employees have with work. This might look like opportunities to develop skills, filling those talent gaps, and exploring how employees can bring more of themselves and their passions into the workplace. It’s a more human approach to organisational culture and that applies to the physical workspace too – think community, co-working and conversation. There’s also a new book on the power of silence and slowing down, a timely reflection on our always-on world. And finally, there’s an interesting read on how we can reframe stress in a positive way to drive curiosity and how we can use our strengths to add value to our businesses.
