An important resource for employers looking for best practices
The eBook includes not only our top 12 tips, but also case studies from companies that successfully manage COVID-19 and other business challenges. And it includes general strategies for motivating and engaging employees in a dramatically changing work environment.
One of the biggest questions for employers is how and where their teams will work, not just about COVID-19, but long after the pandemic ended. According to a recent survey of 841 US employees that we conducted, almost half of the employees who currently work from home want to maintain this regulation. If these employees fulfill their wish, the workplace will be changed permanently. Before COVID-19, according to a prominent study by the US workforce, only 7 percent of US private sector employees had access to “flexible job performance” or teleworking – – the National Compensation Survey (NCS) 2019 of the Federal Office of Labor Statistics. Many of these teleworkers were managers or other employees.
When employees 'preferences change, employers' flexibility is crucial. While many more employees want to work from home, others will prefer to be on site. And of course it will always be necessary to bring employees together to develop innovations, develop strategies together and motivate and motivate the entire team. Employers who can identify the best work situations for their teams now and in the future are better able to succeed and win.
