Resources on workplace trends in 2018

Companies will continue to promote their workspaces and design them to facilitate interpersonal relationships between employees. IBM stopped their remote-working program, pushing thousands of employees from core groups that support their brands back to the office. Apple's innovative new facility is designed to promote worker relationships, idea sharing and collaboration. Google Cafés are designed to encourage interactions between employees across departments and teams. All three companies have found that when employees bump into each other in physical environments, it sparks creativity and relationship building that leads to positive outcomes. Traditional diversity initiatives in organizations seek to include a wide range of groups inside the organization, and make hiring decisions with that in mind. But there’s an alternative model for building a diverse organization: creating an inclusive organizational culture. As the technology for remote work continues to improve, and teleconferencing software becomes more reliable, it’s getting easier for companies to allow their employees to skip the commute. In some workplaces, this is a perk that’s available a few days a week, but many companies have also found that it allows them to hire the best person for the job, regardless of geography. As has been the case in recent years, we continue to predict a growing focus on employee experience as a means of acquiring and retaining great workers. We’ve also predicted the growing importance of people analytics and leadership development in the past. New this year are predictions related to artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace and the accelerating workplace impact of Boomer retirement.

How to deal with Horoscopes?

A horoscope is an astrological chart or diagram representing the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, astrological aspects and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person's birth. The word horoscope commonly said as rashi bhavishya in hindi is derived from Greek words hõra and scopos meaning "time" and "observer" (horoskopos, pl. horoskopoi, or "marker(s) of the hour"). The twelve signs in horoscope are Dhanu, Kanya, Karka, Kumbha, Makar, Meen, Mesh, Mithun, Simha, Tula, Vrischika and Vrishabha. Other commonly used names for the horoscope in English include natal chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, celestial map, sky-map, star-chart, cosmogram, vitasphere, radical chart, radix, chart wheel or simply chart. It is used as a method of divination regarding events relating to the point in time it represents, and it forms the basis of the horoscopic traditions of astrology.

In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologer's interpretation, usually based on a system of solar Sun sign astrology; based strictly on the position of the Sun at the time of birth, or on the calendar significance of an event, as in Chinese astrology. In particular, many newspapers and magazines carry predictive columns, written in prose that may be written more for increasing readership than tied directly to the Sun or other aspects of the solar system, allegedly based on celestial influences in relation to the zodiacal placement of the Sun on the month of birth, cusp (2 days before or after any particular sign, an overlap), or decante (the month divided into 3 ten-day periods) of the person's month of birth, identifying the individual's Sun sign or "star sign" based on the tropical zodiac.
