Employees are individuals first, with different values and expectations in terms of professional career and private life. The days of offering a company car or a performance bonus are long gone for many reasons. Even if you could afford to, not all employees would want the car (“I would be happy with an eco-electric bike please”); while health and wellbeing options could in fact boost motivation and performance, almost as much as a bonus.One of the most daunting challenges employers face is how to manage an age-diverse workforce. And nowhere is this shown more clearly than in benefits packages.The list of benefits that employees are demanding is getting longer and longer, and employers can’t keep up.

I said take the second right after the roundabout!Remember those heated navigational disputes that dominated just about every car journey? Road trips had the capacity to end relationships. Yet, in the last few years arguments over incorrect directions or which route was shortest have almost been eliminated by Artificial Intelligence (AI) – as your GPS or satellite navigation device issued step by step guidance to the driver. Passengers all over the world were instantly free to cease their quarrels and instead take a dozen selfies, check the car mirror to see if they had spinach on their teeth, or ponder the meaning of life!According to a recent MIT Technology Review, Asia is speeding up global AI adoption.
