Workpond: advocates of agile working
Workpond is a Talent Strategy Consultancy, designing agile organisations that get the best from today’s workforce.
We are in an era of rapid and unpredictable change. Businesses that have agile workforces are resilient, nimble and can pivot to benefit from market shifts.
At Workpond, we understand the pressures that businesses are under and know how to design organisations so that they have the agility to adapt to the changes that they encounter on a daily basis. We know how to design roles that motivate workers and get the best results for the business. We know how to create agile teams that can ‘drop in’ when needed to solve problems, as well as teams that form a permanent part of the business.
We work within your Organisation, getting to know people at all levels – so that we gain a deep understanding of where the business is going and align your workforce with your vision.
Agile working: the methodology
Agile working is where an organisation anticipates talent needs and adjusts in real time with strategic agility.
It is where a business brings in specialists for a specific purpose, for the time it takes or tailors its resources to its needs. The great thing about agile working is that it supports the way many people want to work today – on a freelance, interim, consultancy, part-time and remote basis.
Agile organisations are ones that understand the benefits of agile working and make use of it, where appropriate. Agile organisations tend to have strong visions and brands. They have purpose, pace and strong leadership. This allows them to attract high-quality talent – and to grow fast. Agile organisations tend to be innovative – because they can pivot when they need to. They can adjust to economic and political changes because they are nimble. They have strong processes and communication in place so that people know what they are doing and can be trusted to do what they need to do to achieve their goals.
Talks and Strategic Workshops
We provide interactive talks and workshops to organisations to explain why businesses need to be agile in today’s rapidly changing world – and what agile means. We help participants analyse how ‘agile’ they are, and the steps they need to take to improve their agility.
For those lacking time and resources, we provide consultancy to design and implement agile strategies for businesses. We take clients through the whole process, developing an agile resource plan, designing roles, training managers and putting processes in place to support their strategy.
We provide a refreshing alternative to traditional recruitment – helping companies create their own pools of potential talent, cost effectively. We let clients choose the services they need so they receive as much or as little help as needed – avoiding the expensive percentage fees of a traditional recruiter.
