Comprehending the Hybrid Workforce

In the face of market volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of a post-pandemic world, leadership agility and employee adaptability have become vital behavioural attributes necessary to sustain a Hybrid and Work-From-Home workforce

We often read about quotients related to Intelligence (IQ) or Emotional (EQ); however, only recently, since COVID-19’s disruption to organisations and supply chains, has the idea of Adaptability (AQ) received its due.

In organisational terms, the Adaptability Quotient measures a business’s ability to adjust to the marketplace and technological change. The pandemic has tested the AQ of organisations and individuals regarding product, service, and business strategy in a manner few organisational and behaviourists could anticipate.

Rutherford International’s NEXTpath Career Diagnostic Program possesses research tools to establish a proprietary benchmark for clients seeking to define and index their employees’ Adaptability Quotient. This index enables clients to leverage employees most adaptive to remote or hybrid work environments and develop those employees who need to strengthen this capacity.

Remote and hybrid teams are only as strong as their weakest link. The science-based empiricism of behavioural research and diagnostic tools we apply are unique in auditing the necessary natural talents members of departments and project teams require in the aggregate to be productive and collaborative.
