A company culture based on empathy? 13 reasons why ... | InspireHUB

It's one thing to make policies that put people first in company culture. It's another thing entirely to model them. But being part of a corporate social experiment designed to prove that putting the bottom line and people first are not competing ideals? Better buckle up!

Getting beyond lip-service often means a lot of falling down and getting things wrong before you find your groove. Our Founder, Karolyn Hart, jokes about our being "UnInspireHUB" while we fumbled through the transition from a more traditional workplace to the 100% remote -- and empowered -- workplace we have now. She's bent on disrupting some of the most toxic foundations of corporate culture, starting with ours.

While the sign-off on rebooting might happen at the top, the biggest changes often start from the bottom up. Buy-in has to be across all teams and pay grades. "Ask me anything" style collaboration, a willingness to kill sacred cows and valuing "impact" over "hours" may make great sound-bytes, but feel like very risky business when it comes to the bottom line.

And yet something funny happens when you treat people like capable adults. They tend to rise to the occasion, and so does your ROI.

We get Valentine’s Day so wrong in the workplace. | InspireHUB

Today, offices will have interruptions of deliveries. Receptionists become unsung heroes navigating deliveries.

Amidst the excitement will be employees who quietly observe and are suffering from loneliness.

In the healthiest corporate cultures we see teams for bonds of friendship that last for years even after they stop working together.

The 2019 Future of Apps White Paper Is Here! | InspireHUB

Each year, we publish a white paper to help businesses and their tech leaders make sense of the ever-changing landscape when it comes to communications, collaboration, productivity and engagement.  When we shared our first one in 2014, mobile was still the focus, with cell phones being the one device 96% of people had access to at all times.

While that's still true, the way people -- including customers, employees and suppliers -- are using them is changing. One of the biggest shifts? The days of downloading "native apps" from app stores and the endless cycle and expense of having to maintain them across multiple platforms are over, as the "Progressive Web App" technology makes an any-device, anywhere, anytime approach mainstream.

Confused? We've got you! Our new white paper, “The 2019 Future of Apps: Progressive Web Apps Grow and Mature” includes insights on app trends and industry predictions from tech leaders on the current mobile market as the world of “native apps” and “progressive web apps” merge.  Here's a taste ...
