The Future Work Now journey

  • Share

The Future Work Now process starts with the Future of Work Readiness Index, which explores the current level of activation in your organization against each of the seven levers.

  • The Future of Work Readiness Index

    The Future of Work Readiness Index is the data-driven foundational first move that sets the course for leaders to prepare their organizations for the changing working world.

    The index draws on leader views, employee views, data metrics and benchmarking to provide focus for the planning of the future of work specific to your organization.

    It helps to provide clarity in a number of areas critical to starting, implementing and forwarding your plan:

    • Disruptive forces with the most influence on your business
    • Cultural priorities required for your business strategy
    • Your talent challenges today and tomorrow
    • Key workforce and business metrics
    • Current state maturity across a future-of-work framework
    • Desired future state compared against leading and emerging practices that define the future of work

    The Future of Work Readiness Index dashboard

    TheFuture of Work Readiness Index is communicated to your organization through a digital dashboard, which is tailored to your organization’s unique results. 

    The dashboard provides the context for your future-of-work transformation and includes a benchmarked Future of Work Readiness Index score and prioritized design options. Benchmarking helps your leaders see your organization’s readiness relative to others.
