This shift in perspective — especially among younger employees — demands more flexibility from employers as the world emerges from the pandemic and offices open up again. We are entering an era in which employers must recognize the unique needs and preferences of employees, and also accept the role they play in maintaining employee well-being. Employers must take an employee-centric approach if they want to retain and recruit top talent.
I explore employeecentricity — and how you can cultivate it among your team — in my upcoming Future Festival Work Culture Keynote. Through case studies and data-driven insights, I’ll discuss the changing preferences of employees today and how companies can adapt to remain competitive as an employer and emerge from the pandemic as a more resilient organization. Some of these include:
Flexible Work: Employers must offer more flexibility as Millennial and Gen Z employees bring new expectations and norms into the workplace.
Outdoor Offices: The pandemic has led many companies to reinvent their workspaces to accommodate safety and reimagined collaboration.
Virtualized Onboarding: Companies and brands are using technology to create a seamless and connected onboarding experience for new employees.
Fertility Benefits: Companies are recognizing the importance of being more inclusive with the benefits they offer employees, including support in starting a family.
These are just a preview of the topics and examples I’ll discuss during my work culture presentation on Day 2 of Trend Hunter’s virtual Future Festival later this month. If you haven’t already registered for a PRO ticket, you still have time. The event will include other trend keynotes on the future of retail, leisure and social media.
