CRFCast - HR Insights from the Corporate Research Forum: Digital Culture: How Technology is Changing the Way we Communicate, Work & Behave with Rahaf Harfoush

Technology is fundamentally changing how we connect with each other, leading to new behaviours, belief systems and social norms. However, the ethical and moral standards that determine how to behave are not keeping pace. In conversation with Digital Anthropologist Rahaf Harfoush, we discuss what the evolving digital culture means for relationships at work and beyond, how organisations need to adapt to an age of information overload, and the implications for HR.

We explore some novel methods for stimulating and sustaining behaviour change, for example using brain scanners to measure customer reactions, or telling the story of the anticipated future state through science fiction.
