What is the Agile Future Forum

The Agile Future Forum (AFF) is a business-to-business initiative consisting of 22 founder members. They reflect a broad range of sectors, sizes and geographical spread and all have a track record of managing workforce agility in the their organisation. Between them, they employ over half a million people across the UK and, as such, are a microcosm of UK plc.

The group has developed a new approach that enables organisations across sectors and whatever their size to consider workforce agility differently – providing tangible benefits to businesses, as well as their employees.

What we’re here to do
To define the business value of workforce agility in supporting the competitiveness of UK plc and provide the leadership and practical support required to increase agile working practices across UK plc.
