This statement, issued by Sir Richard Branson’s 100 Percent Human at Work Initiative, is true now more than ever. If we are going to not only survive but thrive in this decade of disruption we must change our paradigm around our employees. They are not resources. They are humans, with all the wonder and challenge that humans provide.

Last week was The International Week of Happiness at Work. Nothing will make us happier than being treated as a human being rather than a resource. Last week, this week and in all the weeks to come.
