The challenges faced by companies today and in the next 24 months are those centring around complexity – operating and standing out in a more complex environment, and engaging with a more complex workforce.

Ask yourself, how can I stand out from my competitors, who by the way, comes from a much longer list than they did in the past. And, how can I do this in such a social and fast-moving world of work? Do I have a ‘secret sauce’ that gets employees in the door and then is sprinkled throughout their employee experience to engage and retain them? If not, create one and then shout it from the rooftops on every social media channel out there!

Next, ask yourself, how can I reach out to my workforce that has such diverse cultures, ages and perspectives, fulfilling their individual needs? Have I moved from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to something that is broader and more flexible? If not, there’s no time like the present to get out and do this.

As Albert Einstein said, “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex . . . It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” So be courageous, don’t ignore the complexities, and tackle them head-on.
