How to Restart, Revisualize, and Rightsize Your Workforce


Over the past year, we reimagined work out of necessity. We measured output not by how many employees we saw, but by what projects were accomplished. This moved us from a system of hiring for people to hiring for tasks to be done. All the while, we evaluated the ability to balance free cash flow with the real need to drive returns for shareholders and customers. As organizations pivoted, they often turned to specialized independent talent and consultants to fill the most in-demand roles- a move that enabled strategic growth, but also, in many cases, saved costs as well.

Yet many organizations approach the "how" of engaging this external workforce without a designated strategy… concerns over cost (easily overcome with data and a process), legal hesitations (notable, but manageable) and of course, the most obvious: concerns over the people themselves.

Now is the time to revisualize and right-size workforces by thinking of people as hives rather than teams that band and disband as needed, and thinking of work as a task to be accomplished, rather than as a skill to be hired on an individual basis".
