Ressources Humaines: Un brin d’histoire…

Published

on

Écrivain: HOUDA EL HAYDIA

L’histoire de l’homme est une quête sempiternelle de prééminence et d’asservissement.

Depuis son avènement sur terre, la fascinante créature n’a cessé de combiner dur labeur et intriguantes magouilles pour assujetir tous les élèments de son environnement.

Défini par moult philosophes comme être social évoluant en communauté, l’homme se retrouve souvent en confrontation avec ses congénères dans un jeu de pouvoir à la fois enjôleur et désanchanteur.

La gestion des ressources “Homo sapiennes”:

Il y a 160.000 ans, Homo sapiens fait son apparition sur terre et change le cours de l’histoire en partant à la conquête du monde. Il forme ainsi la première espèce de la planète bleue apte à parler, à créer et à aspirer maîtriser son environnement.

Homo sapiens s’est mis à réfléchir à haute voix, à échanger, à s’organiser et à anticiper son avenir. Il vit désormais dans une communauté élaborée.

Chasse, protection du clan, confection de l’habit, édification de l’abrit, fabrication de l’outil, procréation, spiritualité, la panoplie des tâches se diversifie et les rôles deviennent de plus en plus définis.

La fourberie de l’emprise et la cupidité de productivité infestent l’esprit de la jeune société.

Bientôt, chaque clan aura son propre chef, ses chamans, ses artistes et son prolétariat constitué principalement des chasseurs -cueilleurs.

Sapiens découvre l’agriculture et peut désormais abandonner le mode de vie nomade et organiser sa vie sédentaire au sein du village.

Les communautés deviennent de plus en plus vastes et la hiérarchisation des charges, mandats et statuts s’incruste de plus en plus profondément.

Abondance de biens ne nuit pas! Des villages vont bientôt se distinguer par la qualité de leurs réalisations économiques, artisitiques et militaires. C’est l’ébauche de la civilisation.

ةbauche dûe principalement à des communautés qui ont su fructifier les ressources matérielles et humaines dont elles disposaient.

Un travail de Titan:

Les villages grandissent et se transforment en métropole. Dorénavant, ces nouvelles fourmilières dénombrent des citoyens capables de produire des biens et des services, mais et surtout une nouvelle catégorie d’individus; ceux capables de produire des pensées!

C’est l’émergence de la civilisation humaine.

Orateurs, penseurs, philosophes, poêtes, conseillers politiques et militaires, les formes de pensée se multiplient et ce n’est qu’enrichissement de l’histoire des hommes.

Des pyramides de Gizeh à la Grande Muraille de Chine en passant par les jardins suspendus de Babylone, les intellectuels des civilisations antiques façonnent leurs mondes et poussent leurs populations de l’avant jusqu’aux confins de la sphère civilisée.

La Grèce antique se distingue spécialement à ce niveau et la mythologie épique qu’elle nous a légué nous confesse une histoire envoûtante des mystères de la société humaine.

Une analyse même sommaire de cet héritage nous révèle que cette mythologie fascinante n’est qu’une simplte extrapolation de l’environnement de ses auteurs.

Les forces de la nature y sont représentées par des divinités, les obstacles par des monstres, les tâches par des travaux ou missions et les humains y sont catalogués selon leurs fonctions ou degré d’héroïsme.

La guerre de Troie, les douze travaux d’Heraclès, le déluge de Deucalion ou le mythe de Pandore sont tout autant d’histoires fabuleuses qui véhiculent une idéologie d’éloge de l’abnégation au travail et de l’investissement inconditionnel pour atteindre l’aspiration ultime.

Les critères qui y sont décrits établissent la première source de concordance connue entre le profil et la fonction.

La mythologie grecque équivaut à une réelle mine d’or en matière de ressources humaines. C’est un recueil raffiné et métaphorique pour motiver les troupes et améliorer la productivité.

Titan a accompli son travail avec virtuosité!

Et Dieu créa l’Homme:

L’apothéose de la pensée humaine se concrétise avec la révélation du Dieu suprême. Sapiens porte désormais un nouveau nom : Adam!

Le monothéïsme permet à Adam de franchir une nouvelle phase dans sa quête immuable à dominer son monde.

Certes, les commandements divins régulent dorénavant les relations humaines et établissent les règles à respecter pour tous les aspects de la vie en société, mais la vraie révolution du monothéisme réside ailleurs!

En effet, le Dieu créateur lève le voile sur une vérité qui a longtemps échappé à l’esprit simple d’Adam : la domination du monde passe d’abord et avant tout par le contrôle de soi-même!

Adam, désormais capables de maîtriser ses pulsions et ses désirs réalise des prouesses miraculeuses et se découvre des talents cachés et des ressources internes infinies.

La civilisation humaine atteint son apogée et Adam entame une étape où il n’a plus besoin d’être récompensé, puni, motivé, sanctionné, félicité ou réprimandé pour achever ses missions.

Sa force, il la tire d’ailleurs, de sa foi!

Sa récompense, il la cherche ailleurs, dans l’au-delà!

Qu’on pense l’oncle Sam?:

Adam travaille plus, produit plus, récolte plus, est tenté plus. Il peut résister à tout, sauf à la tentation!

Peu à peu, il renonce à l’au-delà pour succomber aux plaisirs charnels de la vie d’ici bas.

Et rebelote, Adam a oublié le nom que Dieu lui choisit comme prénom, mais n’a pas oublié que son frère Adam est la clé de voute de sa richesse.

Il doit élaborer maintenant de nouveaux outils pour mieux cerner la nature de cette créature et atteindre ainsi son but de luxuruance et d’opulence. C’est la naissance des sciences humaines.

Chaque jour, de nouvelles disciplines y sont introduites, des théories formulées, des postulats présentés sans pour autant parvenir à atteindre l’objectif ultime.

La question se pose alors : Cet objectif existe-t-il réellement ou bien s’agit-il d’une loufoque illusion?

Quelque soit la réponse à cette question, l’oncle Sam n’est pas prêt à abandonner cette mission, comme l’ont fait auparavant, ses aïeux Sapiens, Titan et Adam!

Le voyage continue dans le temps, passé; futur ou présent, la quête fabuleuse de notre espèce promet de durer encore longtemps!

Wellbeing @ Work Summit Middle East 2021 – where balance, resilience and authenticity break the Mental Health Stigma

Published

on

Written by: Cinzia Nitti

Globally, 2020 has been a year like no other. Coronavirus pandemic caused a massive business disruption; transformation has been key in supporting employees and catalyzing workplace changes. There was a rush to adapt and reinvent Business Models. Organizations had to rethink and reconsider how they deliver services and strengthen their Organizations through a forward-thinking Digital strategy. To be more agile and responsive in such uncertain times, we need to respond to challenges and adapt quickly to new scenarios by moving from rigid hierarchies to leaner and more flexible structures.

But what about Mental Health at Work, and why is it essential?

What’s the Office of the Future?

Within the Wellbeing @ Work Summit Middle East 2021, HR Leaders tried to normalize the conversation about Mental Health by putting the topic first, enabling self-care and professional support, raising awareness, and building knowledge around its related issues. Nowadays, personal and work life are more intertwined than ever, so it becomes vital to create balance: the more employees feel free to talk about Mental Health, the more they can prevent struggle and breakout at the Workplace. HR leaders play a crucial role in making an IMPACT by pushing new solutions, promoting work-life balance, redesign workloads, and supporting their Teams.

In this general frame, Irada Aghamaliyeva (MENA Diversity, Inclusiveness & Wellbeing Leader at EY) affirmed: “Workplaces that are inclusive foster enhanced employee wellbeing; employees with high levels of wellbeing are more inclusive”. How can Organizations increase employees’ resilience and embed sustainable Leadership behaviors in the post-covid reality?

Dr. Irada Aghamaliyeva introduced the Mindfulness practice in the Workplace and highlighted its benefits on a large scale: improved wellbeing and resilience on a physical level; positive emotions, self-regulation, empathy and awareness of social dynamics; learning and innovation thanks to the implementation of flexible thinking, intuition and problem-solving processes. So breaking the stigma is possible, starting from personal wellbeing to sustain positive energy and fuel resilience.

About the Power of Empathetic and Authentic Leadership, Dr. Rima Ghose Chowdhury (EVP & Chief Human Resources Officers at Datamatics Global Services) stresses the importance of Leadership roles today. The virtual environment employees are working in, makes them more vulnerable due to a lack of balance between emotional and authenticity traits. Authenticity is the primary factor in effective leadership, regardless of the leadership style. Putting employees first as a strategic priority and hearing their voices to guide strategy; embracing agility to work more effectively in tumultuous time; including a multigenerational work-force: these are the key concepts within Dr. Rima’s motto “Empowering is to enable”. Through motivation and filling emotional support needs, the Empowering Teams Process leads to employees’ safety, esteem, and self-actualization.

Our job is a key part of our lives and we are indeed living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and ‘thinking machines’ are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people.
