Workshop Outline

Definition of Workforce Productivity and Framework

Here we define 'workforce productivity' in the context of the broader business environment, and examine the universal levers organisations have to influence workforce productivity.

Mercer's Workforce Productivity Drivers Framework

The Productivity Drivers Framework helps identify and frame the organizational-specific aspects of productivity and illustrate the systemic relationship between workforce inputs, processes and business outputs.

Workforce Productivity Transformation Process Part 1

Part 1 of the Transformation process starts with developing a case for change. We will discuss how to understand the relevant business context, objectives and outcomes, and establish a 'baseline' understanding of your organisation's productivity, identify gaps and define targets using the Driver Framework and workforce analytics.

Workforce Productivity Transformation Process Part 2

Part 2 of the Transformation is about designing productivity strategies and managing implementation. This section covers how to define improvement initiatives, introduces concepts on workforce design to support productivity targets, and provides an approach to developing change and implementation plans, and ongoing evaluation.

Considerations for Implementation in Your Organisation

Here we spend time discussing how systems theory helps support the productivity transformation process and how it can be applied in your organisation. You will come out of the masterclass with an action plan and key tips for successful implementation.

Case Study: Scrummy Bites
