Accelerating Transitions
for Workforce Agility

Discover the practices and tools to develop personal networks that accelerate employee onboarding, promotions, and transitions

Research shows that accelerating talent transitions drives innovation, efficiency, retention, inclusion and belonging and ultimately organization agility. As we move into a new world of work, practices that accelerate a connected workforce deliver unexpected and often unrealized benefits.

The increasing rate of employee transitions within and between organizations damages organizational performance in hidden ways:

  • When factoring on-boarding, promotions, lateral transfers, contingent/gig/agile work and acquisitions/restructurings, it’s common that 30-40% of your employee base is in a significant transition at any given time.
  • As the collaborative intensity of work has risen the network impact of these transitions does far greater damage to efficiency, innovation and engagement than leaders typically realize.
  • Organizations focused only on reducing first year attrition or new hire time to productivity are investing in the least important benefit (economically) of these transitions.
