Scaling up (& down) to meet business demands
With rapid change in demand for your workforce as the market responds to immediate needs, how do you adapt at a moment’s notice? Some challenges you could be facing include:
- Keeping up with the volume of change
- Workers seconded to support another department
- Need to roll out a new system quickly
Where do you start?
First, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. While your business may be suffering loss in some areas, are there other departments that are shouting for help? Could some skills be adapted across to support in the short term? Some employees may welcome the opportunity to try something different, just be sure they have the resources available to support them.
