Monthly Highlights, July 2022
As humans, we each have a unique living, breathing set of capabilities. We also have an innate set of fears: in the workplace, this can translate to fear of criticism, fear of uncertainty, and fear of harming one’s career. Organizations that prioritize and strengthen employee development not only enable their workers to realize their full career potential but also foster an organizational culture of innovation. This month, our featured stories look at how work experience contributes to almost half of the value of human capital—that is, the collective knowledge, attributes, skills, experience, and health of the workforce—as well as why the culture and employee experience of innovation correlate highly with an organization’s overall success at innovating. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:
  • Silicon Valley’s Marc Andreessen on tech trends such as artificial intelligence, crypto, and Web3
  • the emergence of the metaverse and its value creation potential
  • the latest on inflation and an analysis of the world economy
  • how public- and private-sector organizations can achieve resilience and be ready to withstand shocks
