Don’t assume that the pandemic and economic uncertainties are enough to keep your employees. Here are some realities you need to address…now:
- COVID hasn’t stopped employees from seeking new jobs. More employees want work-life balance and are willing to give up job security in the midst of a pandemic to get this. If you want to keep your workers, don’t expect them to work long hours with no breaks and no rewards.
- Workplace stressors are pushing people out the door. People are willing to risk security to feel emotionally, mentally sound and put stress and anxiety behind them.
- REAL mental health intervention is key. You can’t just pay lip service to mental health and expect employees to stay. They want real mental health benefits and efforts to promote their emotional health, reduce stress, and alleviate fears and anxieties.
- Working parents want more benefits. They want flexible schedules and other benefits to enable them to work and care for their families.
