    Do bonuses actually make us work harder?

    Do bonuses actually make us work harder?

    Many of us have worked in environments that provided bonuses or rewards for success. Maybe they took the form of team rewards or individual incentives, or end of year profit-share schemes. But do these rewards achieve what they are designed to?
    Professor Uri Gneezy is the world's foremost expert on the science of incentives - and he comes with a huge warning about what such schemes actually achieve.
    Eat Sleep Work Repeat is today hosted by Bruce Daisley, Ellen Scott and Matthew Cook.

    Can better culture improve the results of an NHS Trust?

    Can better culture improve the results of an NHS Trust?

    I was flattered to be invited to visit the NHS trust of Barking, Havering and Redbridge last year. I spent an afternoon meeting the team and seeing the place in action.
    It was an inspiring question that CEO Matthew Trainer was asking: 'can we improve the results by making it a better culture?'
    What does that look like? And how is going for them?

    Building Trust at Work: Trends for 2024

    Building Trust at Work: Trends for 2024

    We often overlook the fact that trust is the basis for all good culture. I called out some of the remarkable data on this in the Work In 2024 deck.
    In Slack’s August 2023 survey of over 10,000 global office workers, trust was the top determinant of employees’ productivity scores. Employees who felt trusted were 2X as productive as those who didn’t. They were 30% more likely to put in extra effort at their jobs. If we don’t feel trusted we’re twice as likely to say we’re looking for
    a new job.
    But what role does trust play in the modern company? And how can we build it?
    Mark McGinn is a senior leader at the communications agency Edelman, he talks to me about their research into trust and how we should seek to build it.
    Has our organisation replaced government? Increasingly our company is the biggest thing that we believe we can have an impact on.
    Mark explains that Trust in our organisation is based on four things:

    You'll strongly enjoy downloading Edelman's Trust Barometer and also Edelman's special Trust at Work report.

    Helping the accidental manager: Trends for 2024

    Helping the accidental manager: Trends for 2024

    The role of managers are pivotal in our working lives but most managers aren't trained or prepared for the responsibilities that they are given.
    When we look at the research from Gallup about burnout and why people hate their jobs managers are regarded as having the biggest responsibility. Half of people who say they don't rate their manager say they are looking for jobs. So what can we do to make our relationship with our managers better? I chatted to Anthony Painter from CMI.
