Found this on the BBC website on what it is like to work at Facebook which offers an interesting perspective on motivation and reward

Be interested to hear if you think this would work in your organisation?

  • Thanks Helen - There seems a big gap between these environments and those of most of my clients. It will be interesting to watch how workplace trends in environment influence and complement culture.

    • I agree Helen - one of the reasons I posted this is that it is slightly different to the norm. It also serves to highlight that everything needs to be appropriate to organisational context - which leads on to some of the discussions we have on the Level 5 programmes relating to vertical and horizontal integration of HR and HRD.

  • I've got one to share as well - here is a Yammer cribs vid on what it's like to work at Yammer the enterprise network organisation. Pretty cool - OK very cool ;-)

    • Thanks Mike - I will have a look at this later.

  • Good find- thanks Helen! Always interesting to see how the most talked about companies approach areas such as, motivation and reward. I've picked up on some stories recently about Zappos unique approach to employee engagement- 

    • Thanks Adam - really great link. Will be linking this into to performance, reward and recruitment on HRP programme.
