‘In just a few short years, the concept of the social enterprise—an organization whose mission combines revenue growth and profit-making with the need to respect and support its environment and stakeholder network—has grown from an intriguing new idea into a concrete business reality’.
We first wrote about remote working as an emerging working practice in 2013. By 2018 we were helping major global businesses to the manufacturing industry re-think their people development strategy based on three commitments:
1 Connecting their people on demand
2 Maintain a commitment to people development but reducing time spent off the job
3 Improve colleague work/life balance through potential for remote working
These three commitments are critical in the new business reality.
Yes. The SPICE Tools are based around individual users, each with their own account
Individual users are able to invite others to join their team
Yes. If someone sets up a team, they become that team’s administrator
Through a simple dashboard enabling administrators to manage individuals as well as the team.
By using the simple and intuitive applications to develop and performance manage team members anywhere.
An individual account is like the gateway to team membership. Individuals can also manage their own development through the SPICE Tools
Every individual is in control of their own data all the time. They give permission to share data within a team and have the right to withdraw that permission at any time.
Only a nominated and named administrator can set up a team for a business
It’s often said, ‘every company is a technology company’. The SPICE Framework puts people development into the palm of user’s hands, empowering learning and connecting individuals and teams to performance through an accessible, gamified and graphics-based resource.
SPICE Tools are intuitive in use and require the minimum of prior knowledge or training.
You can log into your SPICE Tools account any web-enabled device, providing the internet is available.
Yes. The team environment can be used to connecting your people generally, especially with the addition of the optional SPICE Forum
Yes. We’ve specifically developed the SPICE Tools as a ‘mobile first’ environment, learning lessons from best practice in social media and gaming applications.
We value feedback and are keen to learn from users. However we’re committed to SPICE Tools being accessed intuitively with little to no prior knowledge
In these uncertain and changing times, the SPICE Framework has been created as a resource to support people on demand and on any web-enabled device, reducing the need to be tied to a particular desk or location and enabling businesses can remain connected to their people and empowering people in their own development.
Applications are web apps, accessed through web enabled device, with an internet connection
Anything delivered through the SPICE Tools should be accessible whenever the user has an internet connection.
You should be able to access applications on the popular browsers, as with any other web site or web application
That would be a business decision for those using the SPICE Tools. However, theoretically the tools could be securely accessed anywhere there is an Internet connection.
Of course. The team administrator has control over what is shared amongst the team
Although data management is covered by our privacy policies, by design individual users are always in control of their personal data. None of it is shared or accessed without their permission.
All too often people development is seen as a cost and a hindrance to productivity that takes people off the job. The SPICE Framework has been developed to empower progressive and incremental development, connecting the on-going development of individuals and teams to operational performance in context.
By integrating unique behavioural assessment, with the direct delivery of development solutions.
You can use other assessment tools to complement the SPICE Assessment
SPICE Tools have been specifically developed to enable users to access opportunities on demand and to evaluate its impact on performance .
The SPICE Tools integrate ongoing assessments, evaluations and performance management reporting, consistently applying infographics that allow improvement to be tracked
We know analytics associated with people development provides business critical information influencing development. Developing the SPICE Framework, we’ve learned managers and leaders prefer quick, accurate and accessible information in the form of infographics supported by text-based reporting. We’ve developed reporting tools accessed in the palm of the user’s hand and connecting people to performance.
Infographics’ are simply graphics that report the outcome of assessments, evaluations and performance management
Of course full reports can be provided, if requested. However most managers and leaders prefer simple, accurate information in the form of infographics
Because they put clear, accurate information into the hands of managers and leaders wherever they are, informing their practical decision-making
