Despite what U.S. workers have experienced through the pandemic,
they’ve shown increasing levels of engagement.
How effectively employers maintain this momentum and address other issues going forward may transform their workforces.
The pandemic has opened the door to transformative change for the U.S. workforce.
Employers need to think about maintaining momentum to keep things moving forward.
Here’s what to consider as you shape your culture and workforce of the future:
1. Engagement signals a strong culture – and it trended up
One unexpected outcome of the pandemic has been an increase in employee engagement.
In April 2020, Research reveals 84% of companies’ engagement and 83% employee experience was better.
McKinsey & Company shared employees are four times more likely to be engaged and six times more likely to report a positive state of well-being if their organizations responded well to the crisis.
That’s worth cultivating when you consider the role of an engaged workforce in driving a strong culture,
which in turn is more likely to drive business performance.
