We are living in very disruptive times - AchieveNEXT Human Capital

Never has the VUCA acronym (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) had more importance. But with that comes opportunity to really examine our enterprises, our people, and our culture to ensure that we stay true to who we are - not only in times of crisis, but when that crisis passes.

The coronavirus has caused almost all enterprises to have to pivot in one way or another. Whether a disruption in supply chain, travel restrictions, or addressing employee and customer concerns, minimizing the impact to business operations and talent performance is at the forefront. It is even more critical now to ensure that there is business continuity and engaged employees. In other words, that inclusive culture is maintained, especially if talent is working remotely.

During this time of uncertainty, ask your talent how connected they feel to the enterprise. Do they feel supported and invested in? How do they view your culture and their internal and external relationships?

Now is the perfect time to assess your culture so that you can identify areas of opportunity and be positioned to proactively address those areas when we all return to business as usual. Take AchieveNEXT's complimentary CIQ Assessment to know where you are and where you could be.
