Findings from a recent survey suggest that your employees are not okay, despite what they may say or do. In fact, they are feeling tired and overloaded. The good news is that there are some steps you can take to help:
- Improve operational scalability and flexibility. Look for innovative ways to support employees, whether they are working onsite or remotely. At the same time, devise opportunities for remote and onsite workers to engage, interact, and communicate regularly and effectively.
- Apply AI, automation, and other technologies to help make workflows more “intelligent.” This means identifying and investing in technology that is secure, responsive, user-friendly, and reliable.
- Lead, engage, and enable the workforce to handle the challenges hitting them at warp speed. Increasingly, your employees need and expect you to support their physical and emotional health, as well as their work-related duties and activities. They will want and need new coping mechanisms, supports and tools to help them juggle work and family responsibilities, and training/skills to enable them to work in new ways.
