A few of the articles from Issue 20:

Keeping Pace:
This article explores how organisations can ensure that the innovative mindset they gained by necessity during the Covid-19 pandemic becomes a permanent part of their culture.

Key takeaways:

  • While an organisational culture that promotes change and innovation can be necessary to survive economic challenges, it can also give businesses a competitive edge when things are more stable.
  • An organisation’s ability to respond quickly and effectively will deliver real competitive advantage in a post Covid-19 world.
  • Ultimately, one key way to nurture an innovative mindset is to ensure that if and when you reverse changes, this is not seen as a step back. Not every new idea will always be a success – give people the freedom to fail. 

Early Start:
The Covid-era cohort of school and university leavers are facing unique career challenges. What  role can employers play in helping the next generation take the first steps of their career journey? 

Key takeaways:

  • If organisations want to attract young talent, they need to better understand what the next generation is looking for in an employer.
  • Young employees coming into an organisation want to feel that their personal career growth is supported and that they are provided with opportunities to learn new skills and gain experience. 
  • It’s crucial to build a strong employer brand. Next-generation candidates gravitate toward career opportunities that strike a strong work–life balance and offer a sense of purpose.
