2022 has brought about many changes and lessons learned, and it offers employers the opportunity to reflect on how their organizations have adapted to recent challenges. With retaining talent a critical item on the agenda for 2022, what are some ways companies can increase employee satisfaction?
Employees are a company’s most valuable asset, so it is essential that employers take a hard look at their employee experience, beyond standard pay and benefits. Companies will need to rethink employee engagement and develop an employee-centric work environment.
Leslie Tarnacki, SVP of Human Resources at WorkForce Software, explains how workplace culture has shifted and how workers’ satisfaction is top priority.
“Modern workforce management software and consumer-grade platforms are critical for employers to better support their employees’ engagement and satisfaction in the workplace,” Tarnacki says.
Extra programs and benefits automated with a workforce management system can go a long way towards showing workers that they are valued and supported.
“For instance, fatigue management systems monitor hours worked, tasks performed, breaks taken, and time off scheduled, to flag employees that may be at risk of becoming fatigued and burned out,” she adds.
Using real-time employee data to create pulse checks and manager-in-the-moment notifications helps employers stay informed on potential employee wellness issues, specifically when employees are working overtime or demonstrating signs that there are potential issues.
