Link: Employee Engagement In The Digital Age

“Communication is essential to employee engagement. We are all plugged in and on our phones; we are always looking for ways to connect with employees electronically.  In the workplace, it is the face-to-face that matters the most. The communication between a leader, a manager, or a supervisor and their employees is the most effective.”

Nessing explains that it can be difficult for people who are unaccustomed to engagement.

“If you are speaking to a line crew in the field about something they are not familiar with, you have to find a way to communicate in language that they can relate to.”

Link: People don’t trust HR

“More than 70% of employees surveyed in tech do not trust HR, according to a new Blind survey. Only 26% of respondents said they do trust HR, and another 4% said their companies have no HR department. The survey, which Blind conducted through its mobile app, collected responses from more than 11,000 users…. In a previous poll, Blind found that 42% of users wouldn’t feel comfortable reporting cases of sexual harassment to HR, and 41% have witnessed or experienced retaliation.”

Link: GKE On-Prem

Networking considered hard: “The amusing thing is that they wanted to connect a GKE On-Prem install running on VSphere for the demo. They could not get a public IP, so they just used MiniKube. Frankly, I think the demo at #GoogleNext2018 was far more amazing connecting MiniKube.”

“Ms Murphy’s own firm is a perfect example. It operates four refrigerated trucks that bring Irish meat to Italy and return with fresh herbs. “From the time the herbs come out of the ground to the supermarket shelf in Ireland it takes about five days, and you are then left with a shelf-life of three to five days,” she says. Making the trip longer reduces the shelf life. Beyond a certain point, it could render the whole enterprise unprofitable.”

Trade is a delightfully complex, yet perfectly quotidian system.
