Is happiness the key to productivity?https://taylor-mason.co.uk/is-happiness-the-key-to-productivity/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=is-happiness-the-key-to-productivity https://taylor-mason.co.uk/is-happiness-the-key-to-productivity/#respond Fri, 07 Feb 2020 18:32:56 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16600  

Lacklustre productivity is an issue employers and governments far and wide are struggling to address. Economists believe that solving the productivity problem would unlock higher wage growth, better living standards and overall economic growth, the Telegraph reports. But what’s the main driver of productivity? Simple: Happiness. Numerous studies have come to this conclusion – for example a 2015 study by the Social Market Foundation discovered that happiness could lift productivity by up to 20%. Now we’ve cracked that one, here’s the next problem to solve: How to make employees happy, read more….

Debunking the ‘future of work’ mythhttps://taylor-mason.co.uk/debunking-the-future-of-work-myth/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=debunking-the-future-of-work-myth https://taylor-mason.co.uk/debunking-the-future-of-work-myth/#respond Fri, 24 Jan 2020 12:34:38 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16521 Diversity

The “future of work” is not something that will suddenly appear from around a corner, but is already making itself felt. So says Jonathan Sears, partner and principal of people advisory services at EY, who before speaking at the in Rome told The Hive why he thinks the so-called future of work is a myth.

The strategic importance of HR’s role should not be underestimated in a fast-changing work environment already impacted by disruptive and defining forces

Workplace bullying is more harmful than we realisedhttps://taylor-mason.co.uk/workplace-bullying-is-more-harmful-than-we-realised/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=workplace-bullying-is-more-harmful-than-we-realised https://taylor-mason.co.uk/workplace-bullying-is-more-harmful-than-we-realised/#respond Thu, 09 Jan 2020 16:08:51 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16450

Wellness and Mental health at work

New findings suggest being bullied at work won’t just affect you emotionally, but could also have serious consequences for your health.

In 2015, not long after Soma Ghosh, now 36, started a new job as a careers advisor, she began to dread every day at the office.

A colleague consistently criticised her performance, blamed her for others’ mistakes and humiliated her. The constant bullying soon took a toll. Ghosh developed anxiety and depression, but there were also effects on her physical health, including trouble sleeping; recurring cold and flu-like symptoms; the appearance of a lump in her armpit; and pains in her fingers, hands and shoulders caused by the pressure to work overlong hours without adequate breaks.

Researchers have long known about the adverse mental health effects of workplace bullying. But only recently – thanks to studies utilising the comprehensive public health records maintained in Scandinavian countries – have they begun to uncover findings that suggest that this bullying could have serious effects on physical health, too.

To Retain Employees, Focus on Inclusion — Not Just Diversityhttps://taylor-mason.co.uk/to-retain-employees-focus-on-inclusion-not-just-diversity/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=to-retain-employees-focus-on-inclusion-not-just-diversity https://taylor-mason.co.uk/to-retain-employees-focus-on-inclusion-not-just-diversity/#respond Fri, 27 Dec 2019 10:53:18 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16437 Diversity Ellen van Bodegom/Getty Images

To retain talent, most organizations offer the typical things: free coffee and tea in the break room, competitive benefits, generous raises and bonuses, and employee recognition programs. But none of that works for an employee who doesn’t feel comfortable in his or her work environment. Picture, for example, a Muslim who prays in his car because he doesn’t want to advertise his religion, a mother who doesn’t put up pictures of her children so that coworkers won’t question her commitment to the job, or a gay executive who is unsure whether he can bring his partner to company functions.

Why is employee engagement important for UK businesses?https://taylor-mason.co.uk/why-is-employee-engagement-important-for-uk-businesses/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=why-is-employee-engagement-important-for-uk-businesses https://taylor-mason.co.uk/why-is-employee-engagement-important-for-uk-businesses/#respond Fri, 13 Dec 2019 11:30:40 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16370 Employee Engagement

Research shows a direct link between employee engagement and productivity, but how can UK businesses get the best from their people?

New data from the Office of National Statistics shows second-quarter productivity declining 0.5 per cent compared with the same period last year – also the fourth consecutive quarter of negative growth for labour productivity. It will do little to allay concerns that the UK continues to suffer not only significant and very serious productivity issues, but equally an employee engagement problem.

YouTube rewind, the most disliked videohttps://taylor-mason.co.uk/youtube-rewind-the-most-disliked-video/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=youtube-rewind-the-most-disliked-video https://taylor-mason.co.uk/youtube-rewind-the-most-disliked-video/#respond Wed, 11 Dec 2019 14:00:25 +0000 https://taylor-mason.co.uk/?p=16366 The good news is last year’s “Rewind 2018” video earned the distinction of being the most disliked video in YouTube history with 17 million dislikes. With that in mind, the Rewind 2019 video is wildly more successful than its predecessor—for now at least. You can check out Rewind 2019 below.

In this accessible talk, mathematician Hannah Fry shows how complex social behavior can be analyzed and perhaps predicted through analogies to natural phenomena, like the patterns of a leopard’s spots or the distribution of predators and prey in the wild.

Leading by example means demonstrating a willingness to create a highly inclusive culture, which goes deeper than simple quotas. A CEO must provide opportunities for all ages, gender and ethnicity. Raconteur report, future CEO, NOV, 2019, Marianne Curphey
