The Africa Workforce Management Summit 2021 (AWMS 2021) promoting the theme "Creating Organizational Agility To Enable Acceleration In Adapting Modern Workforce Techniques", presents a C-level platform that will focus on robust frameworks to help organizations plan and integrate the people strategy with business strategy from thought leaders, practitioners and experts with proven track records and successful best practices in integrating strategic priorities with Workforce Planning, applying people analytics across the talent life cycle, planning and prioritizing uninterrupted change and uncertainty with agility and exploring advancements in technologies and latest techniques to generate insights on Workforce Management (WFM).
Organizations are anticipated to be impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic for months or even years. In a time where most leading organizations have gauged the need to move away from traditional workforce arrangements and adapt to disruptive methods of digital transformation as a way of remaining competitive and meet changing demand.
It has become the best time for management to innovate and revolutionize their working practices to thrive in a post-pandemic setting and adapt for the most important asset - THEIR PEOPLE.
Consequently, the stakes for being agile among companies have dramatically increased. Those who can rapidly pivot to strengthen their ability to develop robust WFM frameworks and create proper awareness around their offerings would emerge as leaders.
Every skill, practice, and framework is crucial for WFM, but one thing COVID-19 has taught Organizations and that is, to be super agile. Hence, it is established that "Agility is Key".
It is worthy to note that the future of work will require organizations to restructure according to the Modern Workforce, which will consist of a crowd-sourced group of employees, collaborative employment, work with freelancers/contractors, and casual and remote work.
Through AWMS 2021, we bring forth a C-level platform with a focus on pressing issues in the workforce management industry like managing demand and building digital talent, explore Strategies to develop robust operational excellence methods, methods for effective remote work practices, comprehensive planning on rapid up-skilling, change leadership and management competencies, create a culture of trust, transparency, and openness, working techniques and the importance of business continuity planning post COVID-19, Agility in adapting to and adopting advanced and changing Workforce practices and think about the individual and social well-being.
