overview: In HR, “agile” can refer to many things: agile L&D, hiring agility, agile benefits or Agile culture. But in this article, I’ll be addressing agile workforces, because understanding how the definitions and acceptance of agile have evolved will set the stage for the next chapter.
By “agile workforces,” I don’t just mean remote. Remote work has become table stakes — even before the pandemic, over 50% of U.S. employees worked remotely at least once per week, and that number has obviously increased dramatically in recent months. Instead, I’m referring to workforces that combine core, noncontingent employees with contractors and project-based employees.
