The era of ensuring companies are ready for the post-pandemic future is almost here. With this, organizations need to apply the new insights and capabilities that continue to emphasize the employee experience.
According to the annual Deloitte Human Capital Trends survey, 96% of respondents said organizations are responsible for employee wellbeing. However, 79% said that wellbeing is not incorporated into the workplace.
The human approach has never been more important than it is today as the past year has taught us. Despite the devastating impact the health crisis has had on the economy and employment, leaders now have a deeper understanding of what it means to create a work environment that supports and nurtures employees.
So how can organizations strengthen these traits and ensure that employees are satisfied, purposeful and engaged in the workplace?
First, set the enterprise mindset for the entire company. This means making it clear that humanization, as well as collaboration, is a top priority across the entire company.
Additionally, employers need to set clear goals in order for work to become a motivator. Giving employees a transparent view of the company’s bottom line gives them the opportunity to become more innovative when trying to meet those goals.
Lastly, it’s important to make sure that the company’s focus is on the future, not the past. By emphasizing future potential, staffers become more inspired to pursue new possibilities.
