Top HIT trends for 2014: Accelerated change is coming - Healthcare IT News (blog) | Global Organization Trends | Scoop.it
Top HIT trends for 2014: Accelerated change is coming Healthcare IT News (blog) According to the American Telemedicine organization, 19 states have a working telemedicine parity policy and another 9 have a proposed law underway meaning soon more...
Billy R Bennett's insight:

Healthcare IT is now concerned with more than keeping your privacy (still a top concern and getting stronger) but also this is the time when Big Data and Telemedicine moves to the mainstream of healthcare delivery.


Imagine two breakthroughs - genomics data used to customize treatments for individuals and the delivery of medical services from anywhere to anywhere.  Centers of excellence in Big Data applications and "remote "services - two trends which when combined could allow organizations and individual  to look globally for specialty healthcare  services in a much broader context thant they do today.



Can we help your organization or leadership team think "outside of the future box"  they are building?

Share of Americans in the work force declining - Leader-Telegram

Share of Americans in the work force declining - Leader-Telegram | Global Organization Trends | Scoop.it
Washington Post
Share of Americans in the work force declining
Leader-Telegram
The share of Americans in the workforce has reached its lowest point in 35 years.
Billy R Bennett's insight:

There are many in the US that would like to place the blame for this on the political climate or a growing entitlement class.  However I would like to suggest two alternative forces


1. The difficulty in changing and adding new technical skills

2. The frustration found in many workplaces


We have witnessed several organizations adapting to point 1 by increasing investments in skills education.   This will have to be a growing part of talent management beyond the current leadership development emphasis. 


However it's point two that could be the greater challenge - a growing number of employees who are ready to "check out" of organizations.  A surprising number are re-evaluating thier careers as they find 401K and investments returning to pre-recession levels and beyond. Early retirements in 2013 surprised many.  They will continue to rise in 2014.


The reason?  Frustration with much of the productivity gains during the recession which came only from headcount reductions - not improvements in processes.  There is also the widening gap between the increases at the top versus the rest of the organization.


As the economy continues to improve don't be surprised if some employees chose to opt out  rather than investing in jobs and careers where they see little to no upside.


Need help considering how to create a winning and desirable future for your organizations?  Give us a call.

5 Trends to Watch in 2014 - Lynda Gratton - The Future of Work

The start of a new year is a natural point for thinking ahead and planning for the future. Just before 2013 ended, I sat down for an interview with the BBC's Peter Day, continuing a conversation he and I have been having for over 20 years.
Billy R Bennett's insight:

Here are the five trends and my take and interpretation...


1. Your future depends upon where you are.

Outsourcing and other changes have greatly reduced the number of entry level jobs in the West.  The opposite is true in India and China

Youth unemployment in the West will continue to be a challenge - much higher skill sets will be required of the new entrants into the workforce


2. Online education:  Where you are is not a limitation of where you study. 

Education is changing rapidly - much faster than traditional institutions are adapting.  The self organizing model of the social network is finding ways to meet needs with specific education and learning paths that allow people to "cut and paste" education to meet their needs.  As all universities begin to adapt - the best learning will begin to rise and become accessable to you regardless of your location.


3. Quotas for women

There is growing trend of new women CEO's  However,  in a world where less than 10% of CEOs are women there is a long way to go.  One of the top concerns of CEO's is diversity in their organization.  Could we see pressure for more progress at the top exec level?


4. The business side of social media

Social media will connect organizations as the workplace not just supporting the workplace.


5. Reconsidering trust

Despite popular belief, there is a generation developing that is adapting relationship skills and "trust" sensors - this will be a skill set that leaves others behind.

Billy R Bennett's insight:
The greater concern in this article is the growing divide of trust between patients and caregivers. For service organizations, competency and customer "moments of truth" are equally critical to an organizations reputation...it's brand.

How The Baby Boomer Generation Is Changing The US Healthcare System

As baby boomers approach retirement age, they are expected to completely change the face of the U.S.

Via Chana Andler
Billy R Bennett's insight:

Healthcare is always on an organizations radar.  This article spells out technically how Baby Boomer's are changing healthcare by the numbers.  However, what they don't say is how this generation will change healthcare by many characteristics that differ from their parents - they will not accept medical expertise as an unquestioned gospel.  They are challenging of opinions and more demanding of results and service.  These to me will change healthcare as much as any other numbers.

I've seen this as an effective retention tool in charitable organizations for key staff.  The result has often been a refreshed direction and enthusiasm for new ideas.  If you are facing an innovation challenge think about giving employees a few weeks every three to five years to study an idea of thier own choosing.  You may be very surprised at the results.

The changing UK labour force and temporary workers

The changing UK labour force and temporary workers | Global Organization Trends | Scoop.it

Temporary working is on the rise in the UK with more and more businesses realising the benefits of scaling staffing requirements to fit their business performance. Matthew Sanders, CEO at de Poel takes a look at the changing UK labour market and how businesses and workers can benefit from this rise in temporary working.


Via Bettina Schaller
Billy R Bennett's insight:

This is a continuation of the remaking of work in the Western world.  In 1995 William Bridges wrote JobShift a book that heralded the transition to a "job" less world.  Years later Fortune magazine produced a cover story announcing again the end of the job.   Not that work would go away, but that for a variety of reasons, the job a the unit of personal security and career would disappear. 


Much of that has come true - unfortunately the support systems, tax structures to aid that transition have been missing or behind in so many ways.  The struggle has been compounded by organizations themselves.  Failing to establish ways to think about an interim workforce as something more than "The Expendables" these businesses fail to understand the care and development these professionals need and desire.  The benefit to caring well for temps, interims, professionals for hire, etc. can produce great benefits for organizations.
