As your business grows, so does your team. After a wave of new hires, leaders can’t work as closely with their employees – changing company and team dynamics.
Big shifts in team structures are inevitable. If your original staff feel overlooked or overwhelmed as a result, you can expect resignations to soar.
When things are moving fast, clear decision-making is key. In newly expanded teams, there’s pressure on managers to keep everyone aligned.
Organisational Fitness is a new way of measuring performance and resilience. It assesses 16 key areas – from ‘leadership’ to ‘decision making’– to understand your organisation’s general capacity for adapting to rapid growth and change.
To truly understand what’s important to your employees – and identify issues caused by fast growth – we use advanced language analysis technology.
