The rapidly changing marketplace, increased global competition, and leaner organisational structures require radically different skills and attitudes.
We’re facing a new future in terms of demographics at work. Soon, we’ll have five generations in the workplace at once, all with vast differences in work behaviour, aspirations and needs. And people today are living and working longer.
This impacts our hiring practices, talent development, and learning methods. It also affects the way individuals and teams connect, communicate and collaborate across the organisation, with customers, partners, stakeholders and in B2B relationships. This, in turn, results in the need to reshape teams, work groups, organisational units, processes, and business models.
There are increasing demands for organisations to be flexible, efficient, and rapidly adaptive in terms of the products and services you are offering. And you are more than likely dealing with increasingly well-connected and technology-versed customers.
Flexible working environments and lifestyle balance are now key differentiators to attract high-calibre staff during the employee search.
