Every Friday, we prepare for you a short digest with news covering subjects related to employee engagement, collaboration, organizational culture, knowledge sharing, leadership and the future of work.

Follow us on Twitter for the latest news.

Here’s this week’s brief:

The secret of retaining millennial…

…workforce is to provide opportunities for professional growth. The free food won’t do it anymore. The data gathered from the 2014 Qualtricks Millennials in Tech Survey show that having a collaborative work environment is what makes them tick. Read Mike Maughan’s “Enough with the free food, already. Millenials want opportunity and fair play” guest post in Forbes to find out more.

Surviving in the digital age asks for a…

…collaborative environment. Why, you ask? Because it empowers workforce and it triggers innovation. Integration as well is part of the deal: integration as systems, as technology that enables collaboration. Thus the “Collaboration & Integration: a match made in heaven” blog post from Adapt2Digital. Read it to learn more about the future digital workplace.

Developing an innovative workforce asks for…

…innovative development techniques. So every organization should focus on developing their employees’ skills, which can be easily achieved by knowledge sharing activities or peer-to-peer learning. Mark Lukens offers even more tips on the subject in his “Rethinking the way we help employees grow” article for Fast Company that we encourage you to read.

“Collaboration is a huge part of how we stay…

…productive, especially with larger networks” says Sean Lynch and we couldn’t agree more. But using more than one dedicated tools that don’t communicate to each other is not very effective. One of the suggestions he makes to fix this? Open APIs! Read his “Bring your workforce together with Open APIs” article in CMSWire to learn about the elements the ideal collaborative tool should have.

Researching for a collaboration tool is…

…quite time consuming since it means testing each solution individually. But at the same time, you have to make the best out of each trial period, or you won’t be sure whether the platform you’re testing is the right one for your organization. Following requests from our testing customers for some best practices, we wrote this “I signed up for a trial. Now what?” blog post that talks about content, administration settings and users onboarding. Read it and let us know which practice worked better for you.
