The Peformance Improvement

As we come out of the recession and companies prepare for hiring and growth, the level of trust in a company’s culture will have a lot to say about whether that organization will be successful or not. Without trust, employees become what Judy Bardwick, in her article titled "The High Cost of Mistrust," calls actively disengaged. She writes:  The absence of trust is not simply passive—that something is missing. Instead, in the vacuum of trust, mistrust rushes in and fills the void. And once trust is lost, it is very difficult to earn back.

Employer-Employee Loyalty

The Peformance Improvement

The new social contract between employer and employee that Moravec describes is based on trust with a heavy dose of reality. Employer and employee must be able to trust that each is making the best decisions given actual market and financial conditions. To get the most from these workers, an employer must create mutual trust quickly and sustain it until the temporary employee leaves. The social contract between employer and employee has changed dramatically in recent years. Loyalty has been the loser. He writes:  Employee loyalty and retention: It's not what you think!

There is a significant challenge for L&D to evolve from this type of fulfilment service to trusted advisor.

Students need to be mature enough to be trusted with technology, and the right age to do this is perhaps when they’ve moved on to college and are more responsible when it comes to using the Internet. I know the title of this post may seem inappropriate considering the times we live in. Our world would come to a standstill without technology, so why are we even asking the question if it would be more of hindrance than help in a classroom? When it comes to the school classroom, there’s a reason why technology should be restricted.
