Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2016
Everyone is working harder, is “on” all the time, and hoping technology can help save them — but it isn’t. “Work Isn’t Working,” a report released by NOBL, reveals the primary challenges management and their teams are experiencing as they try to keep up in today’s constantly changing business environment, and shares some of the ways that companies have begun solving them. The report distills insights gleaned from NOBL’s work with Fortune 500 organizations and startups, alongside the results of a global survey of team leaders and consultants. An easily implemented catalog of best practices aggregated from across the business world that help address the report’s findings can be found on FutureOfWork.is.
“Every company we talk with is experiencing the same challenges,” said Bud Caddell, Founder of NOBL. “The root problem is that everyone is struggling to keep-up with the pace of our constantly changing culture that’s influencing the marketplace; only a few have figured out some ways to cope — but everyone wants to thrive.”
“We’re moving too slowly compared to our market and our customers’ increasing expectations,” said one survey respondent, reflecting a common pain point.
By going right to the source, “Work Isn’t Working” captures what’s happening across companies regardless of industry, giving management and HR executives a realistic look at what their own employees are likely experiencing. The report reveals three issues that are making work ineffective as a result of this frenetic effort to both keep-up and to innovate in response to the rapidly changing marketplace:
1. Processes and Policies. Organizations are trying to match the increased speed of business by overworking their teams rather than by prioritizing work and streamlining processes.
2. Employee Engagement. In the war for top talent, organizations are confusing perks and parties for what truly inspires top talent: the opportunity (and the conditions) to do the defining work of their career.
3. Enterprise Technology. As software eats the enterprise, organizations are focused on where automation can replace jobs (and cut costs) rather than where it can enhance workers to better serve the company’s customers and grow the business.
NOBL’s management consulting approach enables teams to work efficiently and innovate in house at a pace that puts them on track with the speed of the marketplace and implements the future of work — today. Between the examples provided in the report and NOBL’s educational site FutureofWork.is, which draws from actual client projects and well-researched case studies, companies will find simple practices that teams can immediately and easily adopt to begin improving meetings, communication, KPI’s, collaboration, decision making, and more.
