The future of work is transforming at light speed

The COVID-19 pandemic has proved that unexpected events can upend the world rapidly. During these fast-evolving times, successful organisations will embrace transformation, explore innovative ways of working and reinvent their employee experiences to suit the new, blended work environment.

Challenges and barriers organisations may encounter on their transformation journey include:

  • Business strategy misaligned to workforce and organisation strategy
  • Business not equipped for the new shape of work
  • A culture that is overly based on command and control 
  • Digitalisation not realising its full potential
  • Low effectiveness and efficiency of the HR function
