In today’s fast-changing world of work, everyone wants things to flow smoothly. But there’s this pesky thing called “work friction” that’s quietly causing trouble for organizations everywhere.
Join FOUNT co-founder and CEO, Christophe Martel, at the inaugural EP!C Conference in Las Vegas for a breakout session titled, How Friction is Making Work Dysfunctional. Christophe will share insights about how to deal with this persistent issue and make work better for employees and the business. Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 25th from 10:45-11:15am.
Companies are under increasing pressure to reduce waste and boost productivity. Despite increasing investment in HR tools and technology designed to enhance an employee’s motivation and skill set, quit rates have more than doubled in the last decade to over 30%, and productivity has stalled. These trends both pre-date and persist after the pandemic, which begs the question, “Why is work becoming more dysfunctional?” The critical disconnect is invisible and unmanaged work friction, negating efforts to improve people and business processes, especially in large organizations. The average Fortune 500 company is losing more than $750 million per year to work friction. Because it is so difficult to address, this often overlooked area is ripe for analysis that can result in positive change. This session will unveil research insights and practical strategies to enable a frictionless environment.
In this session, participants will learn:
- Research-based insights about the value of identifying and resolving the things that frustrate and slow employees down, leading to wasted time at work, burnout and attrition.
- Learn practical strategies and tips for removing work friction.
- Gain a fresh perspective about a new kind of data that leads to action across HR, IT and the business.
