As the way of working has intensely changed in the past years, employees have redefined their workplace expectations and priorities. Flexible work has become a ‘must-have' employee benefit which poses new opportunities as well as new challenges for companies in the long term.
Creating the circumstances for flexible working doesn’t end with changes to work hours, work patterns or locations. With 43% of employees are somewhat or extremely likely to consider changing jobs in the coming year, enhanced employee experience could make a significant role for companies to survive.
A more meaningful employee experience enables employees to do their best work which result in greater productivity and increased employee loyalty. And wellbeing clearly plays a crucial role in it. 53% of employees are more likely to prioritize health and wellbeing over work than before the pandemic.
Building a great employee experience
The employee’s experience is defined by multiple factors including the technology they use, their physical workspace environment and their learning and development opportunities. Employees need to be constantly engaged and inspired to form and maintain their connection to the organization. Here are the key factors required to build a great employee experience:
Clarity: Employees understand and recognize their successful path and get regular feedback so they can change course and make progress toward their goals.
Growth: They are able to take on challenging work, learn new skills and diversify their experience to expand their impact.
Empowerment: Organization provides access to information, people, tools, and resources to employees so they can work effectively. Employees are trusted to make decisions, take risks, and try new approaches.
Connection: Sense of belonging manifested in collaborative and high-quality relationships with other colleagues. Employees are uniquely valued, trusted and treated with respect.
Wellbeing: The feeling of safety, security and equitability that allows employees to direct their talents, time, and energy to maintain their health and happiness.
