In our 2020 Deloitte Human Capital Trends, we recommended organizations employ a workforce development approach that considers both the nature of jobs and the dynamic potential of workers to reinvent themselves. Throughout COVID-19, organizations have had to challenge workers to expand their roles to anything that needed to be done, and workers were able to rise to the challenge. The workforce adapts more dramatically than many would have expected when faced with so many new challenges. We have seen through this that when given the chance to align their interests and passions with organizational needs, workers can fulfill their potential in ways that leaders may never have known they could, positioning the organization to thrive in the long term. In this episode Barbry McGann speaks with David Mallon, Chief Analyst, Research & Sensing, Deloitte Consulting on how the relationship between worker potential and choice build organizational resilience and much more.
