My 2020 Productivity Secret – Mindfulness

Very cliche for some.

I would think thing if someone told me the same thing a few years ago.

Spending my downtime just sitting there and focusing on my breath?

How is that more attractive than binge on Netflix or scrolling through my Facebook feeds?

So it took me a while to warm up to that idea and to give it a go.

Two things helped encourage me.

I can’t recall where I first read this.

14 Productivity Tools and Apps That Help Me Achieve More in 2019

Productivity – the buzzword of the Singapore economy since time immemorial.

In the beginning, it was very much centred on the industrial age that we were in.

This means getting operators to adopt new equipment, change to new workflows or simply making the production area more ergonomic so you save previous minutes which could be channelled to making more widgets.

And that was decades ago.

In the digital age where almost everybody has a digital device to work on, the kind of productivity pursuit is very different.

Featured Case Study: Why Recruiters at DBS Bank use AI to Hire Candidates

It is tough not to read another technology article without Artificial Intelligence (AI) being mentioned.

To that extent, it is not surprising to see companies using that word more and more loosely.

On one spectrum, you have Oracle CEO Mark Hurd, who said that “it’s just nonsense” to believe that many tech companies are serious about their efforts to develop AI technology. 

And you also have companies like Google, which made the commitment to prioritise AI a couple of years ago.

The Pros and Cons of AI in Recruitment

Artificial intelligence (AI), as a recruitment tool, has been rapidly rising and revolutionizing the recruiting process.

Similarly to sales representatives and marketers that had profited from automation tools such as HubSpot and Salesforce, recruiters are now progressively turning to AI for hiring talents.

Today, the recruitment automation scene incorporates approximately 70 different types of tools such as Gusto, Culture Amp, Luminoso, Smashfly, BreezyHR, and more.

Far from having reached our human cognitive abilities, the potential of AI-based tools in the recruitment process appears to be huge.
