Automation in the workplace: good or bad?

A few days ago someone asked me, 

“If you woke up today from a 15 year comma what do you think would surprise you most about today’s world?” 

My answer – 

“The lack of human interaction in everyday life.” 

Humans have become incredibly dependent on so many of the everyday automations in our lives. 

Starting with things like washing machines and dishwashers we have automated  some of the most basic tasks. However this was only the beginning.

Now with automated workflows in your crm’s to chat bots writing long winded university papers and articles just like this one… it begs the question. Is this good… or bad? My simple answer is both. 

When you take a look at the fast progression there are a few reasons that AI has the ability to appear superior to humans. 

Artificial intelligence is amazing for speed. Humans

How will you transition back to the work place after the stay at home order in Ontario?

To keep operations going in 2020, many businesses were forced to shift to a work-from-home model, but what happens when your employees have grown accustomed to working in pajamas and don’t want to return to work? It’s a challenge that companies are beginning to face as businesses begin to build back. Employees are now ranking quality of life and their overall mental health higher on the list of priorities over the 9-5 daily grind. 

According to a recent Canadian survey, 33 percent of employees currently working remotely said they would quit if forced to returned to work.

With those alarming statistics, it can be a daunting task for management teams to start bringing their workers back to the office, especially if they don’t want to. Preparing your employees to come back post-pandemic can pose multiple challenges, number one being the list of demands employees now expect you to meet before returning to work.

Living life with boundaries and being boundless

Boundaries and Boundless… Oxymoron you might say but I would beg to differ and let me tell you why. Growing up boundaries are very important. Do not talk to strangers, be home before the sun sets and always do your homework. Boundaries help people create safe spaces around themselves to allow development and growth in a safe environment that promotes sustainability. While this is very important it also has the ability to be detrimental to one’s imagination and their ability to push beyond. 

The course of life is fairly laid out for most people. School, job, family … life! And while these boundaries all increase the potential to live a safe and satisfying life they also represent a potential roadblock to new and unique experiences or potentially amazing opportunities. With today’s new technology and different generational cultures a lot of individuals have embraced the concept of a boundless life. Living in vans, traveling non stop and irresponsibly pursuing what others perceive to be an

Maximizing capacity benefits work life balance

Capacity is such an interesting topic because every person’s capacity level is so unique. 

Some people believe that Capacity is static, you have what you have and it doesn’t change, my experience is that Capacity both grows and shrinks.  I can think of times in my life when I had to simply get more done than I thought possible, and without moving a deadline or shifting my personal responsibilities I found I was able to get it done. Equally, I have noticed that there have been times in life when I didn’t have a lot to do, this is especially relevant a year ago right now as the whole world shut down. What I found when I went back to work was that I was more tired and less productive than I had been in the same setting with the same responsibilities previously.

Capacity is created through a series of events:

One’s understanding of tasks that

Hiring Strategies for Building Back Post Pandemic

Despite the hinging challenges that COVID-19 has displayed across major industries, companies are hiring at a rapid pace as they look to build back post-pandemic. Over the next year, businesses will be looking for ways to come back stronger than ever, and one crucial way to do that is by making sure they have a dynamic team of employees to stand behind them. Since a lot of talent was walked out the door in 2020, businesses are starting to realize that not only will some of those employees not be coming back, but they might not be the right fit for the job anymore. 

“The reality is, that during COVID many companies have had to make cuts. And some of those cuts cut deeply. As you start to build back your business, you need to make sure you’re sourcing the best talent available. More specifically, next-generation talent.”

Dave MacDonald, President, Better Together Group

With major shifts happening across a variety of industries, businesses now
