Flexibility improves performance
In New Zealand, our workplace landscape is changing. We are seeing increased ethnic diversity, the rise of an aging workforce, increased caring responsibilities for men and women, growing talent shortages, continued growth in new technology, growth in female work participation and new generations entering the workforce.
In this evolving environment, businesses are required to navigate new ways of working to ensure performance. Building a flexible and diverse workforce is one way to respond to changing market trends and to enhance the elements of a high performing organisation: customer centricity, engaged and capable people, innovation, and ensuring smart investment and resource allocation.
