Sage’s eBook Agility in HR sets out everything HR and people leaders need to know about adopting more flexible and nimble ways of working in today’s rapidly shifting world of work.

Don’t have time to read the full eBook? Here’s a teaser – and four things to consider:

Agile communications

The key to communicating well is through targeted and simple ways that resonate. When it comes to agility for businesses, that means opening lines of communication across multiple functions, which enables the workforce to interact quickly and clearly in response to fast-changing situations.

Agile leadership

Agile leaders should create an environment where cross-functional teams collaborate and step out from silos and learn from each other. Great agile leaders seek feedback and have the right tools to focus on productivity and continuous development.

Agile workstyles

It’s a fact: employers that support agile workstyles are more productive. For the US, 85 per cent of workers believe productivity has increased in their business because of greater flexibility.

Do you actively encourage workers and managers to promote flexible working? Give them tools and systems that make it easy to stay connected and collaborate from anywhere. Consider reforming work policies so everyone knows what’s expected of them in terms of hours, targets, meeting times, teamwork and communication.

Agile performance management

In a more agile workplace, employees may work on shorter-term projects of different lengths. They may have different managers for these and work across functions to form effective teams.
