Workplace 2.0:
The Healthy Option

Using the Cloud for Better Recruiting, Retention, and Compliance


We’ve come a long way from the smoke-filled offices and rigid nine-to-five of 25 years ago – when today’s leaders were starting their careers.

In the early 90s, organisations banned smoking to improve health and installed PCs to boost productivity. Today, they’re turning to physical, mental and financial wellness programmes and mobile, cloud-based, data-driven systems to do the same things. Employees need to feel engaged and creative as they adapt to automation. That’s creating new challenges – and opportunities – for HR teams.

This digibook is a guide to how those challenges might be framed and met.

In this guide you’ll find…


Workplace 2.0

Adapting HR and IT to new modes of business.


Less Work, More Network

Organising teams, projects and roles in a distributed enterprise.


Rebooting Wellness

A sound mind in a sound body makes for better work.


The Feel-Good Factor

What We Pay, to Whom, and Why

Shaping Businesses to People

The structures, platforms and interactions that support Workplace 2.0.

Who will find this digibook useful?

  • HR leaders. Employee engagement is increasingly well understood as a driver of productivity and talent retention. Adopting new thinking around wellness, teamwork and management styles – as well as the technology that supports it – is now critical to sustainable growth.
  • C-level executives. The workplace is undergoing a massive transition. A multigenerational workforce, the need to be agile, distributed teams and automation – these are all asking huge questions of the relationship between enterprise and employee. Decisions about the workplace must be based on robust analytics and strong intelligence about your people.
  • Line management. Managing has always been a skill. Today, that skill is being tested more than ever. Technology platforms that allow for distributed teams and flexible working can boost productivity – providing that managers feel equipped to use them to build employee engagement too.
