We’re living in uncertain times. Inflation is driving the Reserve Bank of Australia to keep raising interest rates, there’s talk of a looming recession in the United States and we’re not sure whether we’ll head in the same direction. When you’re running a business in this environment, it’s difficult to make long-term decisions about staffing. But your business is only as resilient as your workforce, and post-pandemic, we’re seeing personnel reassessing their workplace priorities. For all of these reasons, businesses need to consider more flexible employment arrangements and management approaches in an effort to attract and retain the best. There’s no doubt that creating an agile workforce is the way to go – one that can pivot to changes in the economy and in the competitive landscape with ease and energy. Facilitated by performance metrics, and with a unified goal, agile workplaces can quickly upskill, reskill, or reallocate resources to meet changing demands. Companies that can implement best practices benefit from cost savings, scalability, and efficiency. The best way to build an agile workforce is to adapt a blended approach, with full-time, part-time, and contingent workers. By accepting flexibility in employment contracts, you can engage skilled professionals and knowledge workers to meet the demands of challenges and opportunities as they grow.
