The pandemic changed the way the world works. Companies shifted from five days in an office to remote and hybrid work models. As burnout continued to rise and the lines between work and home life were blurred, leadership teams implemented more flexibility as well as perks and programs to support employees’ mental wellbeing.
What will the workplace look like in a completely post-pandemic world? While that remains to be seen, one thing that is certainly here to stay. And that’s a focus on the employee experience. Organizations will continue to prioritize mitigating burnout, promoting work-life balance and providing the professional development that today’s workers crave. Specifically, opportunities to upskill and develop employees will be a huge component of this effort moving forward and a non-negotiable for not only millennials and the growing Gen Z population, but older workers who have recently reconsidered their relationship with work.
