Welcome to the newest || NERD WORDS for HR ||,
Talented people need organizations less, than organizations need talented people. Dan Pink
This is why people management has one (and only one) core mission: The creation of great workplaces. As people managers we have been devoted to this mission 20 years ago and we will be devoted to this mission 20 years from now. But realize that the number of available employees is finite and decreasing due to demographic developments! Therefore, we won’t need to build great workplaces, we will have to build greater workplaces than our strongest competitor for talents.  
Toward this end, it is essential to gain knowledge about:
  • what will make us happy at work?
  • are there any universal rules of employee engagement?
  • will these universal rules be affected by the future of work?
This is why the 5th issues of || NERD WORDS for HR || features talks, articles, and resources about the characteristics of great work and employee experiences. Also I focused on behavioral economics as a great line of research about with a strong emphasis of managing human behavior at work. As always, I include my very own implications for the future of people management.
