The Modern Shift in Workplace Environment
With the employment market becoming particularly volatile, businesses are realising that finding workers who are happy just to have a job is a thing of the past. It is now a top priority to motivate, engage, and attract talent. The tricky part is that, as the workplace’s demographics shift, the reasons that drive engagement have shifted as well.
Technological advancements, demographic shifts, and the resulting shift in social norms have transformed today’s workplace dramatically from what it was even a few years ago. Employee engagement and experience are two areas where these developments have had a significant effect.
While non-monetary benefits have become more important, agile work environments are gaining popularity. Employees today want to feel a sense of common purpose that binds them to the business. Employee engagement is now guided by learning and growth programmes.
With so many changes taking place in the workplace, one thing is certain: employee engagement is now all about empowering employees and ensuring that they are activated at work.
