For starters, there were to be no bosses. Everyone had their roles to play, no traditional 'levels' were to be assigned, and hierarchy was to be chucked for good. The attribute of autonomy was to have far more weightage than anything else.
Red decided to go for a three-way structure.
Growth: People who bring business, amplify the impact, revenues, etc.
Operations: People who deliver on the work brought by the growth team
Stability: People who ensure that there is balance and the other two groups don't kill each other
A major concentration of RED's workforce were to work under the growth and stability teams, and take up limited operational responsibilities.
Depends. Yes, if you like football
If you’ve ever played or watched the game you’d be familiar with its team structure. Well, RED had quite a team of its own.
You have been waiting for a twist, haven't you?
The new organisation structure was to spring into action on the first of May 2021, also the day that RED was to be separated from BluOne (legally).
But with the onslaught of the pandemic and the associates working from home, almost everyone had to work in Operations and manage existing clients, which was nothing but business as usual.
A non-business team like RED found it difficult to collaborate online and align itself to create new business opportunities. Needless to say, there were very few new businesses coming up at RED during this time.
