Changing Expectations For The New Agile Workforce

The new agile workforce is here now. It’s time to change our mindset & expectations around hiring & development.

Getting people to write their resumes to get the attention of machines that vet their ‘eligibility’ is such a waste of time & resources. Fewer people are competing for more specified positions.

Really, do you want someone to have to pretend to have or be what you need so they can get a job? Do you want to be that person?

The only thing people need is a desire to do that job with your organization & have the adaptability to learn it & succeed. The rest is up to you.

There are 2 solutions – either become more personal & meet people or make skills req’ts less specific & develop people to acquire them. If you are not winning them, raise salary levels. Commoditization as a success strategy for business is over.

Your job is to ensure they can effectively collaborate & that you’ll engage their experience & partnership. Wouldn’t it be great to help them achieve their next merit or salary increase or promotion sooner?

This is the future of work
