– It’s time for a rethink.
Whatever their size, over the past year agile working has becoming crucial to businesses’ success, but how can you embed such a concept in an organisation? For many years, a lot of German companies have rejected the idea of integrating home office and location-agnostic working into their corporate culture, but events of the past year have left them little choice as the world of work has undergone fundamental changes. Experts predict that some of the changes brought about by the pandemic are here to stay and will resonate in the way we work even after it is long gone, with digital leadership, less office-based working, fewer trips and more online-first conferences, and the use of digital collaborations tools characterising our working days.
Just two questions remain unanswered. How can agile working be engrained into the corporate culture? And what tools do employees need to boost well-being and ensure they are ready for new challenges? Finding answers to these questions is crucial for developing a concept that drives businesses forward, increases team satisfaction and boosts productivity.
