Freedom and independence have been the defining factors of the modern day workforce.
As a result, RETS Associates recently offered insight into how companies should adjust their management strategies in order to retain and attract new workers.
“The pandemic has taught employees that they can accomplish their jobs effectively while working from home, without micromanagement and excessive oversight, and so more employees are demanding this management style from their employers,” said Erika Daniel of RETS Associates.
Employees have long known that they can operate efficiently without managers constantly overseeing their every move, but many leaders are just now coming to terms with this reality.
Autonomy and trust have been found to be crucial not only to the employee experience, but also to overall productivity.
In addition to having freedom, employees have also grown to desire flexibility in their every day work schedule.
Companies who adjust their arrangements in a way that prioritizes flexibility, as well as both remote and in-office work, are the ones that emerge victorious in the competition for top talent and retaining their employees.
