Trends and Best Practices shared at the Tech HR event by People Matters — KNOLSKAPE

KNOLSKAPE is a global leader in Experiential Learning, and an uncompromising focus on ‘Experience’ and ‘Learning’ helps us retain that position and build on that reputation year after year. This also implies that the process of our learning, and then, sharing that learning is continuous and relentless.

KNOLSKAPE was recently a part of the Tech HR conference organised by People Matters, and we would like to share what we learnt at the event with all our peers:

· Human interactions over coffee and lunch will always be more impactful than virtual meetings

· The excitement and joy of having in-person meetings was significantly visible among the delegates at the event

· The outcome of a single meeting of 20–30 minutes with co-attendees proves significantly more fruitful than several virtual interactions.

· Don’t let the gadgets rule you

· Measure your steps — but do what your body allows you to do

· The best recovery is by a sound sleep — don’t let your digital watch decide how many hours of sleep your body needs

· Eat 90% healthy (no packets, no processed) — up to 10% junk can be allowed in the diet

· Avoid burn-out — Focus on emotional healing, mindfulness, and physical fitness

Crafting a Cohesive Culture with Human and Tech

The success of an organization is tied to the commitment that its employees feel towards it. A greater commitment impacts other key indicators like motivation, creativity, productivity, and innovation. Building mid-manager capability is the key. Enabling them for strategy execution and being the torchbearer for developing the right culture are imperatives.
