The future of the world of work is here and it is centered around employees – what they need, how they can grow and how they can feel connected to their work. In such an environment, it becomes critically important for the HR functions of organisations to focus on employee engagement while also trying to get a deeper insight into what matters to the modern employee.
Employees of today expect more out of their jobs, and their employers. They want their sense of purpose to align with the values of the company and they want their managers to aid their professional development. These are things that cannot be bought by simply increasing employee’s take home pay. It requires a paradigm shift in how employers and organisations view employee engagement and employee experience. And this shift is forcing companies to truly value their employees – by actively working on bettering company culture and looking at practical, efficient ways to enhance employee engagement and experience.
While there is a plethora of textual and theoretical information out there about employee engagement, from research reports to surveys, what is needed is an honest and open discussion about what actually works.
To better understand the issue at hand, People Matters, in partnership with Batik, brings you an expert panel in which leaders from across industries will come together to discuss their insights, challenges and, most importantly, best practices. Some of the talking points of the discussion include:
1.What are the major challenges that HR leaders face when it comes to dealing with an increasingly disengaged workforce?
2.What would you say are the expectations of the modern employee and how do you think they have changed over the years?
3.What are some tangible steps that you have taken to elevate employee experience? How has your workforce responded?
4.What are the best strategies to not just deal with disengagement among employees but also create an atmosphere when employees can thrive and deliver business impact?
