With companies and executives being held accountable for incidents in the workplace, the issue of workers’ health and safety has become a persistent concern for organizations around the world. And with varying standards across borders, confusion about what companies need to do is rampant.
This need for an international consensus standard on workplace health and safety prompted the proposal of ISO 45001 in 2013.
The standard, passed in March 2018, now serves as the international guide on occupational health and safety (OH&S) and outlines relevant methods and benchmarks.
With insight from expert leadership, this whitepaper gives you the complete guide on how to work with the new standard. You'll learn:
• Why ISO 45001 matters and its impact upon your business
• The benefits and pathway to becoming certified
• Important considerations for the contractor selection process

Workday has grown at a rapid pace since the company’s inception. Though this growth was indicative of the company’s success, it had an unintended side effect.

Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. “We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.” BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process. Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. In contrast, BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. This includes the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.

Research suggests that up to half of the investment your organization is making in Learning & Development (L&D) is being wasted. Employees unfortunately lose up to 75% of the information they receive through traditional L&D approaches (including learning management systems, episodic trainings, and workshops) — an effect known as the training transfer problem. In this report, discover the five critical requirements for effective behavior change and leadership development.
Culture has become one of the most important business topics of 2016. CEOs and HR leaders now recognize that culture drives people's behavior, innovation, and customer service: 82 percent of survey respondents believe that "culture is a potential competitive advantage." Knowing that leadership behavior and reward systems directly impact organizational performance, customer service, employee engagement, and retention, leading companies are using data and behavioral information to manage and influence their culture.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.
For organizations to succeed with the onslaught of devices, sensors and tools that innovation garners, data must no longer be treated as a byproduct but instead as an asset. And data-driven innovation must start at the top. That's what Michael Schrage, Fellow at MIT Sloan School's Initiative on the Digital Economy, said during the Harvard Business Review webinar, Leadership and Big Data Innovation. Find out why data experimentation, governance and culture are part of the next leadership challenge for organizations.

A related recent development in the data center is converged infrastructure (CI). Instead of the traditional silo deployment approach to storage, compute, and network resources, all infrastructure elements are delivered and managed in a single environment, providing virtualized access to business services in an efficient manner. This is particularly suitable for cloud-based delivery models. However, since CI achieves lower costs through optimization of data center resources, it can be effective for all IT organizations, regardless of the way in which the services are managed or presented.
