What is the system for driving year-over-year workforce productivity improvements in companies that are largely leased buildings and people?
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 6, 2009
Bradley W. Hall, Managing Director of Human Capital Systems, announced today that he has been appointed a columnist by TheStreet.com (http://www.TheStreet.com). Hall will join three other recognized management innovators: Laura Bloom, Bob Prosen and Vince Crew to author the weekly column "The Innovators."
After working in executive roles for several of the world's most admired companies, Hall found that many state-of-the-art management practices simply don't work. For example,
- Do performance appraisals improve performance?
- Does talent management create a more capable workforce?
- Does leadership training create better leaders?
- Do job satisfaction programs increase productivity?
Management research is clear - few of these practices work. Yet, we continue to do them anyway.
Hall's first article focuses on services and information intensive companies like Microsoft, Reuters and even Orkin Pest Control and asks the question,
"What is the system for driving year-over-year workforce productivity improvements in companies that are largely leased buildings and people?"
Very few companies have such a system. The article briefly describes a complete workforce productivity system.
