Managing Rapid Workforce Growth Pathway Audit™
Your questions answered……
What is the ‘Managing Rapid Workforce Growth’ Pathway Audit™?
A focused management questionnaire and analysis which gives your executive/management team important information about your approach to and preparation for a rapid influx of new employees. Often when this happens, there is a lag phase between the new staff arriving and being able to organisationally absorb them whilst retaining business performance. Areas such as management, leadership, systems, communication and culture become stressed. This audit offers critical guidance for successfully addressing these issues.
Why use it?
There are times when your business may need rapid expansion; a start-up with some new investor capital, a successful international commercial deal requiring much more resource. Rapid expansion is relative – going from fifteen to fifty employees can be as challenging as a larger company needing significant expansion. The infrastructure of the business suddenly become stressed, with new people, roles, work systems and culture challenging the current equilibrium. Understanding what these challenges are and how to deal with them is critical for a leadership team to address in order to retain successful business performance.
How do I use it?
Your nominated executive/management team individually complete a simple on-line survey taking no longer than thirty minutes. The results are analysed and presented to highlight strengths and development needs in key areas such as management, roles and responsibilities, communication, culture, work systems and employee skills development.
When is it used?
The ‘Managing Rapid Workforce Growth’ audit can be used at any time to help you better understand what needs to be done to make this transition successful, but is particularly useful before or during rapid organisational growth.
