The Edge Power Room Series – Why work insights are the key to building an adaptable workforce of the future?
In a hybrid environment, work has become far more variable. Leaders must understand how work gets done to the last mile, where organizational pain points lie, and identify work patterns that remain hidden in plain sight to unleash the trapped value in the organizations.
