Does your organisation have the skills for a post-pandemic future?

Updated: Oct 20, 2020

The recent AHRI Pulse Report "Skills for a post-pandemic future"[1] identified five key skill categories that are crucial for organisations post-pandemic recovery:

  • Change management, flexibility, adaptability and agility

  • Managing well-being, resilience and psychological safety

  • Strategic workforce planning

  • Communication

  • Compliance, industrial relations and employee relations

The report found that only half of HR practitioners believe their workforce is ready for 2021, and even fewer believe their workforce actually has those skills they identified as critical for future success.

Rapid upskilling will be required for many organisations to move from the states of ‘reacting’ or ‘resolving’ to ‘recovering’. While the survey shows that HR practitioners are well aware of this, leadership also needs to understand how fundamental an appropriately skilled workforce is to their organisation’s recovery journey. To be future ready, 38.9% suggest they will have to upskill the current workforce in the next 6 months.

How can Liminel help?

Liminel has core offerings that strongly align with the first three categories and has just launched our ICAgile Coaching Agile Transitions with Lean Change Management course which will provide attendees with key skills in the first two categories above and answer the questions like:

  • How can we integrate agile and change management to transition to agile in an agile way?

  • How can we apply agile practices to complex agile transformation programs?

  • How can we reduce uncertainty by iterating our way through change?

  • How can we reframe resistance to change by changing how we think about change?

Explore the learning outcomes and sign-up for the course.

If you're interested in running this course within your organisation, please get in touch to discuss your desired business outcomes.
