The idea of enhancing humans physically, cognitively, and psychologically is promoted by transhumanists. It requires from technology to focus on one's individual abilities so as to improve them beyond what is possible at the natural state. While enhancement was long the realm of cyborgs and referred to a lonely use of technology, this concept could also be applied to organisations. This paper proposes an analysis of the concept of 'enhancement' applied to the workforce and demonstrates how one could design an intervention to enhance nursing staff in hospitals. Dimensions to consider when developing technology for enhancement in the workplace are identified.
