The topic of workforce agility is white hot – we’re in a period of an accelerated, and much needed, transformation of work and skills. The way we hire, move and upskill people is being disrupted and challenged by the global pandemic, border closures as well as on-going digitisation and automation.
It’s hard to find an organisation that ISN’T working in a hyper competitive labour market. So attraction and retention of talent is, more than ever, a C-Suite priority.
At TQSolutions, we’re actively advising customers to avoid focusing too narrowly on ‘process and cost efficiency’ as it can lead to under-investment in the areas that will lead to long term business resilience through talent. We firmly believe success will come to companies who obsessively focus on workforce/skills development, workforce data & insights, employer brand & employee experience (particularly career development and mobility).
This session draws out some fantastic insights from the panellists around:
- Re-framing workforce agility as a zero-waste approach to people strategy
- Increasing data and insight around internal talent
- Gathering intelligence beyond job titles and basic skills
- How to make agility a competitive advantage
