Your Most Engaged Employees May Not Be Your Highest Performers

The latest research on employee engagement has turned conventional wisdom on its head, revealing that an organisation's most engaged employees are not necessarily its highest performers. In fact, according to research by Leadership IQ, in 42% of organisations, low performers are actually more engaged than high and middle performers. This poses a significant risk for organisations that rely on employee engagement surveys to reassure them that their best people feel connected. More


The FoW Membership Experience

We often get asked how membership works, what it feels like and how it helps you in your work and your personal development. We’ve put together a video which gets the message across in a very engaging way and reflects the membership experience much better than the written word. See for yourself by clicking here.

MEET THE FOW TEAM

As we prepare to launch FoW 5, learn more about the team behind the research by discovering who they are and how each one of them contributes to the consortium.

It takes a wealth of different skills and capabilities to deliver a research consortium that generates unique insights. And as all our members know, FoW is truly a team effort, and in part owes its success to the diversity of the Hot Spots team. This month, we’re showcasing our team members by giving you a little more detail about what they do, how they got here, and the special qualities that make them a vital part of the Hot Spots Movement.

Founded in 2009, the Future of Work Research Consortium is the brainchild of Professor Lynda Gratton and Dr Julia Goga-Cooke. As the founder and thought leader of The Hot Spots Movement, Lynda provides the research and insights which form the core of what we do and is committed to bringing energy and innovation to our members. Material from Lynda’s books is a key feature of FoW and she infuses each iteration of the consortium with her cutting edge business thinking and piercing insights into trends that will shape the way organisations work in the future.

NEW MEMBERS FROM NEW COUNTRIES

This year’s Consortium also benefits from some new and exciting members from around the world, who will no doubt bring interesting and unique perspectives to this year’s events. Just to mention a few which represent two new countries:

Huawei - Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. Huawei’s mission is to enrich life and improve efficiency through a better-connected world.

Ricoh - The Ricoh Company, Ltd. is a Japanese multinational imaging and electronics company. Since its founding in 1936, Ricoh have endeavoured to develop and provide innovation-driven products and services to an increasing number of customers. Ricoh's headquarters are located in Chūō, Tokyo.

Kokuyo – Kokuyo Co., Ltd. was founded in 1905 in Japan and was originally a stationery company. In the 1960s it branched into furniture and has since worked with its clients to create ‘spatial values’. More specifically this includes the production and sale of office furniture, as well as furniture for public and commercial spaces.
