To change the world, change work: Bringing the human element back into management isn’t some feel-good, idealistic goal; it’s a financial imperative. The new industrial revolution is automating labor-intensive processes the same way for all companies. So what will your competitive differentiator be? More than ever: your employees. You had better make sure that they love their job! And, believe it or not, they want to. After all, who likes to waste a big chunk of the day? Is giving people a job they can love possible? Yes. Will it be easy? It depends, but where there’s an executive will, there’s a way. However, you may need to change your thinking.
Companies must reinvent themselves over and over to keep their market-relevance. The same goes if they want to further their sociological congruity and stop bleeding fortunes in employee disenchantment and turnover. In other words, they must breathe new life into their most powerful asset, their human infrastructure.
