Resilient workforce

Rethinking what work is done, how it’s done, and where it’s done

When there's an economic downturn, many companies look closely at their costs and where they can cut back or optimise. But that's not enough any more. Creating greater resilience in their workforce requires taking a broad view. Particularly because the labour market will remain under pressure in the coming years due to labour scarcity and quickly rising new technologies. Making and keeping your workforce more resistant, more agile and more resilient, calls for continuous care.

Rethinking what work is done, how it’s done, and where it’s done

Scarcity on the labour market and new technologies

In the coming years a rapidly ageing employee population will be retiring en masse. That means increasingly fewer people will be doing increasingly more work. It is therefore inevitable that you will deploy more and more technology. At the same time, the quick rise of new technologies creates big challenges. What do you invest in and what is your return on that investment? What work can get taken over, for instance by artificial intelligence? And how do you guide employees, whose work gets taken over, to other work?

Resilience within the workforce

In this way, companies can create resilience within their workforce and be better able to deal with unexpected setbacks. One thing is obvious: happy and healthy employees perform better, stay with the company longer, cost less, and cause fewer organisational risks. But what decisions do you make when it comes to performance management, employee engagement, and key talent while working remotely?
