Workforce productivity

Boosting performance through agility

How fast can your organisation move? In fluid markets and particularly in tough economic times, speed of movement is a key to success. But what is the key to agility? It’s not about IT systems, two-thirds of which fail to deliver on their promises. Nor is it about throwing people at a business problem: a major multinational recently reduced its workforce by 50 per cent yet boosted its overall performance.

Agile organisations have employees who feel positively engaged with the business; who understand their remuneration and can relate it to performance. These organisations also have simplified management structures that speed up decision-making.

Hay Group can help organisations to become more agile. We can design reward systems that motivate and engage staff. And we can help you to develop organisational models that are geared up for fast decision-making.
