What is Agile in HR? HR teams around the world are adopting Agile ways of working across their whole people operations portfolio. Agility is about: having the user and business needs in the center of what we do delivering value in an incremental, stepwise manner with a continuous improvement mindset adopting a team based and human centric way of working

Agile is a preferred approach to work in many HR areas, specifically in domains where the human experience or behavior is a key element. (culture, people experience, talent, performance, reward, lifecycle processes…). Agile is applicable and valuable for HR people from any industry, of any seniority, and of any HR expertise area.

Is Agile something for me?

  • Are you working in a continuously changing business environment and experience frequent need to reprioritize, align, and sometimes change direction?
  • Would you need a smarter way to structure, prioritise and deliver the work to your organization?
  • Does your team need a way to visualize work and move more synchronized, fast and coordinated, together?
  • Are you looking for more self-management, empowerment to team members, and want to learn how to organize self-managed work?
  • Do you want to build amazing employee experience through designing people services and products that have been validated, and your employees and managers will love to use?

    Then Agile is something for you!
