A Workforce That Works: Strategies for Workforce Transformation in the 21st Century


Change is afoot, and the future is full of promise. The workforce transformation revolution has arrived and is transforming all aspects of business. And while this transformation will transform all businesses, some will be better positioned to succeed than others.

The workforce transformation revolution is here.

Workforce transformation is the new business imperative. It’s the process of transforming your workforce to be more productive and effective, using technology and innovation to make better use of existing resources and create new opportunities for growth. The traditional approach has been to manage people as assets, but this is no longer sufficient in today’s competitive environment–you need a way of thinking about your employees that’s more dynamic than just “employee” or “human capital,” something that allows you to transform them into something else entirely: an engine for growth within your organization.

You can start with one simple question: What would happen if we treated our people like customers?

Workforce transformation isn’t just about technology; it’s about people, culture and skillsets. Companies must invest in technology that supports these changes if they want their workforce to be ready for the future.

What is workforce transformation?

Workforce transformation is a shift in how organizations attract, develop, engage and retain their employees. It’s also a business imperative: according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs report, 65{b863a6bd8bb7bf417a957882dff2e3099fc2d2367da3e445e0ec93769bd9401c} of work activities could be automated by 2030.

Workforce transformation is the new normal–and it’s not just about technology; it’s about shifting our mindset about what makes up an effective workforce strategy. The future of work will look different from today because it must be driven by technology that allows us to rethink how we hire people for specific roles and tasks rather than having one person do everything (which isn’t sustainable).

Workforce transformation is happening globally as countries compete for talent by offering better work conditions including flexible hours or remote work opportunities; this puts pressure on businesses who may need to adapt quickly if they want their employees’ loyalty over time.”

How can you see if your organization is ready for workforce transformation?

  • First, you need to understand the problem.
  • Next, you need to identify the stakeholders and their interests.
  • Finally, you should be able to identify a solution that meets all of those interests–and then implement it.

What do businesses need to do now to start preparing for workforce transformation?

In order to begin to understand the future of your organization, you must first understand the current state. In order to do this, take time with your team and conduct an audit of where you are today and where you’re headed.

  • What do we have today? Who are our employees? What do they look like–age-wise, gender-wise, ethnicity-wise? Are there any gaps in representation within our workforce that we need to close? How much experience do they have with technology or other key skills required for success in a digital world (e.g., data analytics)?
  • Where are we going as an organization over the next three years–and beyond? What does success look like from a business perspective (e.g., revenue growth)? From an employee experience point of view (e.g., increased engagement).

Once you’ve identified these key pieces of information about both present and future states, start thinking about how best to bridge any gaps between them by creating strategies around talent acquisition strategies including recruitment practices such as job postings; onboarding processes including training programs; performance management systems such as performance reviews; compensation plans including bonuses/incentives based on meeting certain criteria related specifically back into those earlier mentioned areas such as sales targets set by senior leadership team members at quarterly meetings held throughout each year etcetera…

Workforce transformation will continue to transform businesses and the world at large.

Workforce transformation is a big change, and it will continue to transform businesses and the world at large.

The world is changing rapidly. In order to adapt, organizations must prepare for change by becoming more agile, flexible and scalable than ever before–or risk being left behind.


Workforce transformation is the new business imperative. It’s not something that will happen in the future; it’s happening now, and it’s happening fast. If you don’t embrace this change, your organization will be left behind. But if you do, there are huge benefits to be gained–from better customer experiences through more efficient operations to more engaged employees who feel like they matter at work. The time has come for all businesses to embrace workforce transformation as part of their strategy for success in today’s rapidly changing world!
