The pace of change across business and society has never been greater. Innovation is now so rapid, and business environments so dynamic, that organizations are choosing to become much more flexible as a matter of survival. Business models are also changing to accommodate the new pace of change, with co-opetition, outcome-based pricing, and the emergence of fluid, project-based organizations. At the same time, the accelerating pace of change is creating huge demand for specialist new skills, especially those that enable the new digital technologies. To attract such in-demand talents, organizations are adapting to the needs of a new diverse.
Expectations among the new talent include opportunities to pursue a highly personalized career path, and much greater accommodation for commitments outside of the working day. Above all, employees are looking for a more rewarding, authentic work experience, where they can give their best because they have the right tools for the job, the right training, the right support – and they can truly be themselves.
At the core of these changes is a recognition that a rewarding workplace that is flexible to the needs of each employee, benefits both the organization and the individual, fostering an environment of mutual trust. At the same time, questions remain about how best to accommodate new ways of working while supporting a diverse workforce as it navigates life’s milestones and challenges.
To highlight how working flexibly with a diverse mix of colleagues and partners can enable a more inclusive workforce, teknowlogy Group has partnered with Fujitsu to look at specific examples of best practice. This report looks at the business value of driving a more diverse and inclusive environment, and the role of co-creation across broad ecosystems in driving technology innovation to provide a more supportive and personalized workforce experience.
