Growing Through Outcomes: Services, Working Models & People

Business priorities are constantly shifting; whether it’s to grow, reach diversity and inclusion goals, provide a more flexible working model etc. The future of work is fast approaching and the future is based on Outcomes.

Therefore when it comes to a business’s workforce, working model and required internal services, the approach, strategy and solution to each should be outcome-based. 

But what are the outcome-based avenues available? The Find Your Flex group are proud to provide outcome-based services and solutions that help businesses grow while keeping people at the heart of every solution.   

Outcome-Based Working

Outcome-Based working is at the heart of what we do, as our research has shown that it is the only way both businesses can grow in a cost efficient way while enabling staff to not only work flexibly but potentially earn more than current ways of working.

When looking at outcome-based working we look at two primary avenues: outcome-based working models and outcome-based managed services.

An outcome-based working model is the shift from traditional fixed hourly rate of pay working. To a model where employees are paid based on the outcomes of their work. This way of working enables full flexibility while maximizing productivity. It will also organically result in a fully diverse and inclusive workforce. 

An outcome-based service is where your business outsources an internal service to a company like Find Your Flex. This is an alternative to having an in-house team provide the service as this will put a drain on your businesses resources and finances. 

Outsourcing services means you will be tapping into expertease, experience and resources that would have otherwise been unavailable to your business. Best of all it is more cost efficient and once the outcome has been delivered you no longer pay for the service until it is needed again. 

Both an outcome-based working model and outcome based services help remove fixed costs and working to outcomes enables staff to be fully flexible, working where,when and how they want.

A literal win-win, but to learn more about outcome-based working and what the benefits are click here.

Shared-Workforce

Share-Workforce is a managed service we provide to companies who are in serious need of fixed cost removal. A shared-workforce is a great alternative to redundancies; instead of laying off part of your workforce, your business shares them with us!

We manage the services of your team (and the cost) and sell the service they provide back to you on an outcome basis. The fixed cost is removed, your organisation’s attrition rate remains unchanged and your employer reputation is intact.

There is also a potential for ROI; if we outsource your team’s services to other companies. Returning said team from a fixed cost liability to a revenue generating asset. Either way it is a much better alternative to laying off staff.

If you want to know more about Shared-Workforce and why it is the smart business choice take a look here.

Talent Acquisition

Talent Acquisition is a managed service we specialise in. In-house recruitment is one of the internal services that drains an organisation’s resources and finances. We provide an outcome-based managed service as the solution to this problem

It is a long and tedious process that HR departments dread. As recruitment campaigns can divert and distract from their day-to-day tasks. Which in and of itself can cause a domino effect with other departments. This results in a severe lack of productivity and even a potential loss of revenue.

Businesses do not often need in-house recruiters. Vacancies pop up and need filling and once they are the service will not be needed again until more vacancies need filling. Why incur such a fixed cost.

Outsourcing Talent Acquisition is the most cost effective way a business can recruit. They are tapping into expertease that knows exactly who to look for and more importantly where to find it. Shortening the lengthy filtering process and filling roles quickly and efficiently.

Attracting Talent Talent Acquisition

Talent Acquisition: Why is it the best way to grow your workforce?

The Find Your Flex group are proud providers of a Talent Acquisition Managed Service. But what is Talent Acquisition, how is it different from “recruitment” and why should businesses choose to outsource to a TA service provider like us over conducting in-house recruitment?

By reading this article we hope you will see why Talent Acquisition is the way forward to growing a skilled talented workforce through cost efficient means. And the Find Your Flex Group are happy to be the facilitators of that!

What is Talent Acquisition?

Talent Acquisition is a managed service that companies use to build and grow their workforce with new, skilled talent.

A Talent Acquisition Service Provider is not the same as a Recruiter; while both provide a service that adds to a company’s workforce the means and outcomes of these methods are entirely different.

Recruiters focus on filling vacancies, TA Service Providers focus on adding value to your company through providing the most skilled and talented people.

The company informs the TA service provider of the services they need a person to provide. The TA service provider will then use expertease and access to a built-up network of unique talent to source the right person for the job; who will add the most value to your organisation.

Talent Acquisition versus In-House Recruitment and Recruitment Companies

We briefly touched upon the difference between Talent Acquisition and Recruitment. However, it is important for businesses to know the key differences when choosing how to grow their workforce.

So why should your company outsource to a TA Managed Service Provider over recruiting in-house? Simple; it’s more cost effective, it’s quicker; you skip the costly, time wasting recruitment process and your HR department isn’t wasting 85-95% productivity time.

Why Talent Acquisition, why not just go with any Recruitment Company? Again, it is more cost effective; there is no commercial price for recruitment, their rates vary and appear to be baseless.

Furthermore, they seek only to fill vacancies; by casting the net wide and filtering until they find the best of the bunch… (again a long and costly process).

Talent Acquisition means actively going out and finding the right talent that will bring the most value. Not waiting for them to possibly find us by process of elimination; that’s not the right process to find talent.

Acquire Talent and Grow your Business

Having valuable talent is what makes a business. And the only way to truly grow your business is to acquire the best talent out there. The only way to do this is through utilizing a TA service like ours.

You gain access to the best people, you get them quickly and efficiently. By the most cost effective means. You acquire a valuable asset to your company, you don’t just fill a vacancy.

If you want to start growing your team by acquiring valuable talent, get in touch with Find Your Flex. We will use our expertise and vast network to source the best Talent for you!

Outcome-Based Working: Flexible, Productive, Cost Effective

All of our services, goals and narratives are based on our certainty that Outcome-Based working is the future of working. That isn’t just a statement we are confident in, the evidence is there. The business case is there. But now that future has become the present.

We are now in a post-pandemic world, one where flexible working is not a benefit but an expectation. A world where technology is advancing so fast that it is threatening careers.

In the same world; businesses are expected to meet the evolutionary demands of society at an extremely fast pace. Finally, a world of financial uncertainty where businesses need to become more cost effective to grow and survive. 

Working to an Outcome-Based Model is the only way of working that addresses all of these.

What is Outcome-Based Working?

Outcome-Based Working is a way of working in which an employer focuses solely on the outcomes of their employee’s work. The where, when, why and how these outcomes are met are of no concern.

So long as the tasks, services etc. are being completed in the desired time, just how individual members of staff get there is up to them. Meaning staff gain full flexibility and businesses maintain the same level of service.

The most Valuable and Productive Work Style

Despite the evidence that flexible working does work, employers are reluctant to make a full shift; which would be to an Outcome-Based Model.

Instead they try to cling on to the old ways of working by conforming to Hybrid and 4-Day week models. But there is no business case for these and why would they want to stick to the old ways when it costs them more?

Find Your Flex has done the research and businesses are throwing away thousands, potentially millions on outdated or unfounded work styles. Why? Because they are not productive. The amount of work being wasted in productivity is what is costing the business.

Outcome-Based Working on the other hand is 100% productive, staff work more days in the year (without compromising time off), it costs businesses less and staff can potentially earn more. Where is the downside?

How Outcome-Based working achieves perfect D&I

Businesses are under societal pressures to achieve perfect D&I with their workforce and they want it done quickly. Gender pay-gaps need to be closed and the workforce needs to be diverse, with an inclusive work culture.

Many transformation programmes have tried and failed to accomplish this swiftly. A shift to Outcome-Based working automatically solves this issue. People are hired and promoted based on nothing but their outcomes. 

Any potential bias is removed, meaning perfect inclusivity is achieved and the workforce will become organically diverse as a result. Everyone is automatically on an even playing field. There is no fairer way of working in that it creates a working culture where equality can thrive.

What is the first step?

We have been saying for a long time that the future of work is Outcome-Based. But the future is now. Businesses need to get on board or risk being left behind.

This does not mean the first step has to be a great big working model shift. It first means a shift to an Outcome-Based mindset. This means looking at utilizing an outcome-based managed service over in-house, see the benefits of that on what it looks like.

The Find Your Flex group provides such services and would be happy to show you exactly how working to Outcomes can benefit a business.

Interested in shifting to Outcome-Based Working? Then feel free to reach out to us anytime if you want us to help implement an Outcome-Based Working model.

Becoming Mutable: A Permanent State of Transformation

Without meaning to sound dramatic; the world has changed. As such the world of work has changed too. Economic and societal evolution used to happen at a certain pace. That pace has increased now to the point where businesses can no longer keep up. Which is why businesses need to look to the future and the future is Mutable.

What is Mutable?  

Mutable is both a business philosophy and a business operating model. To be Mutable means to be in a permanent state of transformation; to be in constant competition with your own business practices.

Being Mutable is the only way businesses can keep pace with external developments; economic, societal, technological etc. It is the evolutionary step towards business sustainability, in which all other methods used for this in the past century have now become thoroughly obsolete.  

It’s an operating model that puts the people at the core of all strategic decisions. Recognising that it’s the people who make a business what it is.

The Mutable model provides flexibility for people and adaptability for businesses. Businesses can adapt to all external changes with minimum interruption. Allowing all organizations to flourish and grow.  

Why Mutable is the answer to the Transformation Problem

This point is key and all businesses need to take notice; Transformation Programmes don’t work. And haven’t for some time, they are obsolete, a thing of the past and the sooner businesses realise this the sooner they can start overcoming the issue this presents.

Transformation programmes get a business from A to B in a certain area, usually due to societal and cultural change. The problem is by the time the business reaches B through a transformation programme; society has gone from B to G.

The point is; we now live in a society that demands transformation at a far quicker pace than a business can hope to match through transformation programmes. Which is why for a business being Mutable is the only solution.

Being in a never-ending state of transformation means businesses can adapt to all external changes in step with the rest of the world. And organisations can focus on what it is they do best.

The initial steps towards Mutability

The most important step towards becoming Mutable is to shift to an Outcome-Based work model. This is the most adaptable and productive work style out there and focusing on outcomes is what enables businesses to react quickly. 

Another important step is to start viewing your workforce as talent that you need to acquire rather than cogs in a machine. As stated in the beginning; people are at the core of Mutability, so how you view your people is key. 

This starts by tossing out the idea of recruitment; this is a system that is designed to fill vacancies just to keep the wheels turning. Talent Acquisition is designed to bring the most value to your business by actively sourcing talented people. 

Finally; embrace change. This is vital to becoming mutable. CEO’s, Directors and Executives may not be comfortable with big change, but it’s better to get ahead and embrace it. To fight it is futile as society will force the changes anyway.

To be Mutable is to embrace change as it happens. So never again will businesses be hampered by the need to make changes.

Start your Mutable Journey 

Mutable is such a revolutionary concept and the journey is an infinitely rewarding one. It will enable businesses to grow in ways never considered. Remove barriers that may have once seemed impossible to overcome. Furthemore,they will be the trail blazers towards a future in which all other businesses will one day follow out of necessity

Every big journey needs the right guide who will provide all the right tools. The Find Your Flex group is proud to be that guide for every business that is eager to take those initial steps into a high-growth, flexible future.
