“New Work” is more than a trendy buzzword and can do more than institute flexible working hours. To us, New Work means the opportunity to develop as an individual and to participate as an entire person in the tasks at hand. Innovation can only come about where people are free to think and act, where diverse individuals working in changing roles in teams or networks find solutions together and can make full use of their potentials.
Organizations that are prepared to listen and tap people’s enthusiasm, and that manage to empower employees to act independently, will prevail. HR has evolved from a pure service provider and administrator within an organization into a strategic line of business. Value creation and customer orientation are just as applicable here as they are in other areas.
