Which back-to-work extreme are you?
A few weeks back to work and a myriad of feelings for employees. Some are still excited to be back, others are already stressed from the routine change. From a personal perspective, how do you make sure to find a good balance throughout the fall season? We asked this question to some of WeBridge's service providers and the answers point to one thing 'Set your priorities'. A change of season usually brings about new priorities due to changes in weather, family time, hobbies and work schedules. So make sure you clearly note what the differences are for you.
From a company perspective, how do you contribute to the handling of these personal changes? How do you re-focus your employee wellbeing services to fit the new situation? Or do you just continue the same programs from the beginning of the year? WeBridge's advice is to gain clarity on what these changes are, and how they have affected the employees' overall priorities. Not just what employees say they want, but their real needs.As the fight to hire and retain top talent especially for white collar jobs continue to be even more competitive, make sure you understand the pulse of your employees and take heed to new changes. Be flexible enough to offer services that help maintain or improve productivity and engagement.
