More than your role
Met some folks from a firm, and when they shared their business cards I noticed something different.
Along with their designations, the card also listed their various hobbies - like rock climber, cook, yoga enthusiast etc.
It's the first instance that I have seen where an organization acknowledges that the employees are not just role holders but people with multi-faceted interests, over and above that role too.
Increasingly, with technologies that enable people to be reached anywhere and work from anywhere, organizational time is blurring the traditional boundary between work and life. And according to this post by Gerry Crispin, organizations are increasingly becoming interested in what their employees do after hours in this age of social media.
