Expecting the unexpected is something many of us wish we could do. We would all love to be able to predict what changes are going to impact us next. Who in our organizations are going to be our future rockstars and who are those who will take a different path in their career journey? Are the hiring decisions we made going to pan out? If we had that ability to see what the future held for us all this focus on planning would be much less relevant. We could afford to be more lackadaisical in our approach. But the reality is the speed of change continues to increase at a lightning fast rate and we have to be prepared for what the future holds. Whatever that may be.
Now is the time for you to prepare for the future. Just simply having great people work for your organization is no longer sufficient. Our generations are changing and so are their expectations. This is our time to ensure we are planning for the impacts of this and many other changes. Our workforce is our future and with out a plan to continue to engage, develop, and grow our people, our companies will falter. Whether your challenge is getting great people, keeping them motivated or growing your future leaders, having a plan is the first step towards success. How future proofed are you?
