Workforce Architecture

Your 'Workforce Architecture' is the combination of workforce activities and systems that empower your people's productivity and ability to create value.

Balancing compliance & choice

In most situations, workforce architecture has become compliance-focused and frustrating to navigate. Rather than enhancing productivity or enabling the creation of greater value, the combined effect is to do the opposite. Rather than creating a stronger organisation that is responsive to change, Workforce Architecture often exposes the organisation to far greater risk by reinforcing a tendency to be silo-oriented and both unable and unwilling to change course. The key to empowering people to create value is to balance workforce architecture between compliance and choice appropriately. ​

Rivor helps organisations achieve a balance between compliance and choice by reorganising workforce activities to ‘build’, ‘deploy’ and ‘reward’ people for the creation of value. 

  • Organises workforce activities into what is needed to help people develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to meet strategic objectives.

  • Organises workforce activities into what is needed to distribute organisational resources to effectively and efficiently meet operational needs.

  • Organises workforce activities into what is needed to effectively incentivise and reward performance to ensure optimal outcomes are achieved.
