Be it Kanban or Scrum – agile management methods are becoming increasingly popular, and not just within the field of project management. Many companies already started using flexible work structures more and more in order to improve employee productivity.
Agility is essential in today’s business environment. An agile company is defined as an organization that can quickly adapt to changing market conditions through its high level of adaptability and flexibility. In addition, these companies are characterized by their high level of interconnectedness within the company. In this context, employees are granted a high degree of autonomy and trust.
Particularly in the area of software and IT, as well as in human resources, companies focus heavily on agile working methods. Comprehensive workforce management solutions enable employees to bring flexibility into their working hours. What is more, employees can submit their availabilities and requests directly via the system. In coordination with the individually defined regulations and strategies of the personnel planners, efficient and yet employee-centric roster can be created without any additional effort.
To stay agile, it is essential to consider the mental health of employees in addition to their physical health. Having regular regeneration phases and a pleasant, respectful working environment contributes positively to employees’ health. The implementation of agile structures can lead to an improvement in working conditions by increasing employee participation.
