As we inch closer to the start of a new decade, many are making predictions about how workplaces will continue to evolve and what to expect from changing workplace culture.
This year, the term “fake news” was no longer reserved for political discussion. Instead, several companies found themselves fighting against disinformation that has been running rampant among workers, all while trying to maintain high levels of employee engagement.
In the coming year, business leaders will look to create a unified message for their workers according to Nicole Alvino, Chief Strategy Officer at a workforce communications platform SocialChorus.
Along with this, Alvino expects that companies will invest more into employee engagement and productivity tools, such as Slack. While many workers have their own preferences, companies will need to create a multi-channel strategy from one platform to keep employees aligned.
Today, employees have more of a say on what they expect from their higher ups. Major companies have seen protests and walkouts due to ethically questionable practices, so 2020 will likely see executives being more mindful of their ethics and how it reflects on the company. This provides companies with a competitive advantage, helps retain talent and builds a healthy workplace culture.
Additionally, organizations facing an issue with employee engagement will need to refocus on more generations than just millennials and Gen Z. Adopting a multi-generational workplace will help businesses boost worker engagement and allow workers to feel more valued in their position.
