What exactly is Smart Working?

We’re often asked, ‘What exactly is Smart Working’?

Let me explain.  It is a business wisdom.  A shared vision. A collective agility and smart in the way people in the organisation operate, think and transform.

The question is – is it one you have in your organisation?

Our concept of Smart Working was designed by us over a 2 decade period. There was some trial and error, but it has left us with a tried and tested methodology. We piloted, trialled, made mistakes, learned what works and what doesn’t…..so that you don’t have to.

What exactly is Smart Working

Our tested concept now helps organisations develop and embed more agile and adaptable ways of working, leading and thinking for the future.

Many organisations have hobbled through this crisis, managing to keep things going. But organisations, large and small, will only really prosper in the future when they possess a shared capability to adapt and deal with the disruption this uncertain world continues to throw at us.

Hybrid Work

As we move into the phase of hybrid working we must become much more deliberate about developing the necessary skills within our workforces.

First and foremost, Leaders and their workforces need a collective growth mindset. A combined adaptable approach, that will enable them to not just cope, but thrive, in an uncertain environment. Secondly, they must be able to build Two Way Trust into their work culture. That’s no easy ask!

From Frontline to Board.

That’s why we are helping our clients to consciously and purposefully develop the right skills at every level in the business,

Right now, as we move into 2022, having the resilience, the skills, the tenacity and the confidence to deal with all of the change and ambiguity that we are facing, is what will stand you head and shoulders above your competitors, both commercially, but also from a labour market perspective.

A Note to the Finance Directors out there

The Great Resignation means that Talent really has become the new Cash Flow. So defining and communicating your Smart Workforce vision, with credibility, is a huge differentiator in attracting and retaining the right talent.

As Mr Darwin told us, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

Taking action now will separate you from the rest of the pack!
