How ready is your organisation for the new world of work?

Use the new diagnostic tool from Hudson Talent Solutions to analyse your organisation’s readiness for the new world of work, by clicking here.

Work is changing. The development of new technology, changing demands from the next generation of employees, and the imperative to innovate are all combining to present companies with a set of unprecedented challenges.

Business leaders are waking up to the need to lead the response to these challenges. Indeed, the recent Deloitte 2017 Global Human Capital Trends survey asked senior executives for the top issues they are now facing. They ranked as the top five:

  1. Organisational design
  2. Leadership
  3. Culture
  4. Engagement
  5. Learning

There are a number of mega trends underlying all this: the spread of automation from the factory floor to the back office and beyond, new modes of flexible working, increased demand for certain skills, the growing need to define and pursue a corporate purpose – all are having an impact on the workplace both now and in the future.

In addition, a new set of priorities is emerging outside the company. Stakeholders who are concerned with the long term performance and sustainability of the business will expect to see leaders empowering their people to pursue innovative practices. And they will be asking a series of questions that go to the heart of the matter.

For instance:

  • Are employee concerns over automation and standardization being addressed properly?
  • Have you recently reviewed your ‘cultural metrics’?
  • Are you benchmarking your recruitment performance against your competitors?
  • Is the company’s next wave of incoming talent drawn from a sufficiently diverse background?
  • Who on the board is taking the lead on cultural change?

Business leaders need to face these questions and demonstrate they are the right people to navigate the business through the next decade of change and disruption.

For that reason, it is more important than ever that businesses are prepared for whatever the future holds. That’s why Hudson has developed a new readiness tool to help business leaders assess their readiness for the next phase of workplace innovation.

The tool is designed to map out an organisation’s preparedness to respond to a range of challenges, from employee engagement and skills gaps to company culture and the use of Big Data and analytics to improve talent performance and development.

The tool has been designed to deliver a swift and brief assessment of a business’s readiness. It can also help with tips on organizational effectiveness, corporate agility and better talent recruitment and retention.
