The age of digital disruption ushers in a radical shift in the way organisations perceive HR, hierarchy, and talent management. The early adopters of the lean methodology are replacing the traditional, one-dimensional, and sluggish processes with an agile framework that focuses solely on increasing efficiency and enabling continuous improvement.The agile doctrine was initially designed to remove the bottlenecks and improve collaboration between the software development teams. Since then, it has been adopted by progressive organisations to reinvent how HR should function to attract, retain, and develop their skilled employees. With these people-centric organisations kicking their competitors to the curb, it’s becoming increasingly critical for others to pick up the pace and exhibit agile HR in practice. > In a 2017 Deloitte survey, Agile HR implies more co-creation, greater flexibility, constantly evolving solutions, and better adaptability between processes, employees, and projects to allocate finite resources responsibly.

She felt the energy and drive of the founders Pierre and Mathias, and their enthusiasm rubbed off! She understood that there was a certain amount of risk in joining a startup that's still in its early stages, but she was captivated by the founders' grand plans and wanted to become a part of them."I haven't regretted the decision for a second, and it turned out that I could trust my gut feelings," says Matilda.Matilda's duties as the customer success manager include helping customers gain the highest possible value from Winningtemp.“I provide customers with initial support by planning the onboarding of Winningtemp together with them,” she says. “Next, I guide them through a process for finding an appropriate approach for implementing Winningtemp in their organisations. When the customer has found the right approach, and it has become natural for them to talk about well-being as revenue figures, that's when I'm satisfied. "Matilda notices a huge contrast in how HR works now compared to two years ago. When she started at Winningtemp, HR departments wanted to implement Agile HR. Still, many organisations were not yet prepared when it came to working with digital employee surveys in real-time."Many organisations were not mature enough, but there were early adopters in HR who jumped on board and saw the benefits of working agilely and digitally," she says. "Today, the situation is quite different, and even the most conservative industries are starting to open their eyes to leveraging opportunities of digitalisation in becoming more agile when it comes to HR. ”
