We all know that happier employees lead to more productivity and a better overall work culture. So why wouldn’t we do everything in our power to both be happier ourselves and to make those around us happier?
In a fairly recent article, one of the leading consultancy firms in the world, McKinsey, said that:
But before we dive into the McKinsey article, for everyone who is still trying to wrap their heads around what exactly agile and agile HR is…
Here are a few quick tips from Organize Agile:
- Agility is a way of thinking
- It is not about controlling and prescribing
- It’s about sensing and adapting
- An agile organization often works with multidisciplinary, self-organizing teams, just like we practice at Management 3.0.
OK now back to McKinsey and how agile makes for happier employees.
Benefit of using an Agile HR model
Their article highlights a few key points that an agile HR model can help with, primarily enabling the allocation of resources to “top business needs”, which generate these outcomes, according to the article:
#1 Critical talent ventures are completed faster with better outcomes and greater visibility
#2 HR staff can focus on generating impact while developing a broad range of skills.
#3 A centrally managed pool of HR professionals allows for visibility and control over development and deployment and eliminates the siloed approach usually found in traditional HR organizations.
At Management 3.0 we also believe in the Agile HR approach. In fact, we just launched a new Agility in HR (ICP-AHR) Workshop to help people learn about the changing role of HR in agile and what it takes to attract, hire and retain the right people.
