In goodmorning bsn! door Business School Nederland

Ellen van Dieren, renowned speaker, coach, advisor and co-owner of Talent College, recently shared her insights during our Goodmorning BSN! webinar on the strategic process of increasing, enlarging, and optimising human capital within an organisation, with a focus on enhancing employee well-being and functionality. In today’s fast-paced business landscape, where change is constant, Ellen’s expertise in recruitment, employer branding, and commitment to good employment practices make her a valuable voice in the realm of positive workplace transformation.

The Era of Amplition

Ellen’s presentation cantered around the concept of amplition, a term derived from the Latin word ‘amplio,’ meaning to enlarge, increase, or magnify. In a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, the traditional approaches based on past experience and forecasting might not suffice. Amplition, according to Ellen, is about strengthening the well-being and functioning of employees, ultimately amplifying human capital within an organisation.

The Role of Employers in Ambiguous Times

Ellen pointed out the role of employers in creating a conducive working environment, especially when faced with ambiguity and constant change. While acknowledging that employers cannot be solely responsible for the happiness of their employees, she stressed the importance of influencing well-being. Creating working conditions that support employees’ flourishing is not only beneficial for individuals but also forms the foundation for overall organisational success.

Shifting Focus from Problems to Solutions

A key takeaway from Ellen’s talk was the importance of shifting our focus from problems to solutions. Instead of merely addressing issues or changes, organisations should embrace a continuous phase of development. Ellen highlighted the significance of adopting a growth mindset, focusing on health policies rather than absence policies for example, and nurturing a conscious dialogue within the workplace.

“Amplition transforms workplaces into vibrant hubs where people not only choose to work but thrive in a vital state.”

The 9 Building Blocks of Amplition

Ellen detailed the 9 building blocks crucial for implementing amplition within organisations. The foundation (blue), encompasses the core elements like purpose, values, and organisational philosophy. The green blocks, interrelated with each other, include recruitment, talent management, employee experience, employability, work environment, appreciation, transformational leadership, process and policy, and conscious dialogue.

Practical Insights for Implementation

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to implementing these building blocks. Organisations should assess their current state and focus on the block most relevant to their needs. Whether it’s redefining recruitment processes, fostering a positive work environment, or promoting transformational leadership, each block plays a crucial role in amplifying human capital.

Amplition offers a fresh perspective on organisational success, placing human capital at the forefront. By embracing the 9 building blocks of amplition, organisations can create a positive, people-oriented workplace that fosters well-being, adaptability, and, ultimately, success. As we navigate the challenges of the modern business landscape, Ellen’s approach encourages us to amplify not only our problems but also our potential for growth and prosperity.
