    My 2010 Predictions (Like I really know)

    These wise, sage, prescient prognostications were originally posted over at William Tincup's JPIE, I am taking the liberty to re-run them here.

    Yes, that does mean I did not finish the 'real' post intended for today, but as a method of preview, it involves a discussion of 'Going back to Shawshank'.

    Forget that for now, here are my three predictions for the Human Capital space for 2010: Flickr - Maribelle71


    • Smart organizations will recognize the value in employee networks, both internal and external, and develop strategies and implement technologies to help grow, enhance, and leverage these networks to increase revenue and profitability.  Most other organizations will worry about blocking Facebook and trying to pay for more storage space on their MS Exchange servers.


    • Trust of employers by employees will continue to erode, and only the very best companies, the ones that respect, support, and develop employees will see their long-term prospects for growth and success enhanced. The exception being energy companies and health insurers, they will rake in profits in 2010 no matter how they treat their employees and customers.


    • Workforce technology will go more ‘mobile’, partially fueled by worker’s expectations and demands, and mostly due to employer’s realizing if everyone has an iPhone or BlackBerry that can easily access company systems that most top performers will work morning, noon, and night. Employees will begin to negotiate ‘non-working’ hours in employment contracts instead of employers demanding adherence to a schedule of ‘working hours’.

    What do you think? 

    Do I need to hurry up and get the 'Shawshank' post done?

    Have a wonderful 2010!
