We have all at some point heard the phrase "the only constant in life, is change". Fact is, in business things are always changing. With organisations operating in a fast paced, ever-changing world, they have no choice but to find ways and means to rapidly adapt and respond to change in order to remain competitive and relevant. The current climate demands of organisations to quickly react to disruptions, new technologies, competition and to shifts in the market conditions. An organisation's ability to react and quickly adapt to these changes is in its agility.
As technology advances and competition intensifies, organisations understand the benefits of continuous training for managers. While management training does require substantial investment in time and capital, the returns can boost productivity, job fulfilment, unity, and the overall quality of work. If your organisation doesn’t have a continuous management training program in place, it is time to invest in one and take your operations to the next level.
The agenda around diversity, equity and inclusion is one that remains key in most organisations, and it cannot be ignored. Initially, this agenda was driven by legislation in order to enforce the inclusion, equal and fair treatment of the underrepresented groups in organisations. It started out as balancing the race, and then later the gender scale, but has over time become less legislative, but more about organisations taking an active, action-oriented approach towards creating and championing cultures that embrace and recognise diversity, equity and inclusion. The focus has now shifted to become all encompassing, and addresses DEI issues related to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, religion, language, age, etc.
