The Digital Workplace – Episode 3: Uncovering the People
Uncovering the People is the third in this series of programmes that uncover the Digital Workplace. This week, Caroline Garstang Howlett of NGA Human Resources is with Matt Champion of SAP UK, a global HR technology partner of NGA HR’s.
Matt’s job is to make people think differently, introducing design thinking and mindfulness to help people to focus the human side of digital transformation, not just on technology and processes.
Matt touches on a recent study from SAP that found the more mindful employees are encouraged to be, the greater their performance is. Over the last four years SAP has monitored impacts of positive employee engagement and the overriding finding is that there is huge value to be gained from a people first culture, a joint belief that also lends to strengthen the partnership between these two organisations; healthy people equal a healthy business.
