Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the WorkHuman Conference in Orlando, FL. Traveling also gave me the opportunity to catch up on a few movies (with 3 year old twins, my movie viewing has shrunk to one a month, if I am lucky). One of the films I saw was "Ex Machina."
|Are we human or are we dancer?|
The movie made an excellent companion to the conference and a similar test could be applied in the HR world. What characteristics truly make a human workplace? Words such as recognition, appreciation, happiness, presence, and mindfulness easily flowed from speakers and attendees alike. Sadly, I didn't hear much about paying a living wage for employees as part of the conversation.
With that in mind, what makes a workplace human for you? What would make it pass your test?
