Pinpointing This Week: Beyond Measure?

No Comment 21 Views

As technology and access to information advanced at dizzying speeds, we’re considering the implications of growth and complexity on the way we live and pondering spaces in which our stunning capacity to measure and act helps us lead richer, more creative and interconnected lives. There is now widespread acknowledgement that measuring subjective well-being is an essential part of measuring quality of life alongside other social and economic dimensions. But as we increase our ability to measure, are we really getting at what matters most? What about empathy? Happiness? Love?

This week we’re focusing our attention toward the new ways in which we’re evaluating our own progress; the evolved performance metrics by which corporations are assessing themselves and their teams, and what that means for HR, recruitment companies & CTO’s (Chief Talent Officers); the fascinating work that Gallup are engaging in to create a comprehensive measure of wellbeing with their “Global Wellbeing Index” (along with much more research on the topic); And, we’re going to show you an illuminating talk by Dan Pink on the ‘Puzzle of Motivation’ which has received more than 13 million views and counting. Enjoy!
