Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace
Large organisations are changing constantly to keep ahead – often hiring in one place while shrinking the workforce elsewhere. They need to be agile. At the same time, workers are demanding greater flexibility. Is there a way to bring these two needs together and create a more agile workforce?
The Ci Group’s original Agile Resourcing programme was the first of its kind setting out to identify the ideal employment deals for tomorrow’s diverse workforce, together with evidence of how companies can increase scalability, versatility and flexibility. It included a new global survey of knowledge workers. The resulting ‘Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace’ (first published in 2005) distilled the outputs from the programme and seeks to challenge some of the assumptions about work that are preventing companies and individuals from achieving the kind of workplace each desires.
