As you have rightly noticed, the rules of the workplace have changed and it will never be the same again (sigh). The power now lies with the employees, not with employers. While it’s quite a drastic change, you should embrace it rather than fight it.
The future is all about the employee experience
The future ladies and gentleman is all about the employee experience, but what does it actually mean? What comes to your mind when you think of this concept? Fancy office space, free coffee, 10 different kinds of juice and a snooker table? Well, the good news is, you are not entirely wrong. Physical space does play a role in creating a great employee experience but it definitely isn’t the most important aspect. There is much more to it.
Employee experience is the sum of three factors: organizational culture, physical space, and technology. Only by embracing these 3 elements you will be able to create a workplace that your employees will want to come to and do their best work.
Why is it so important?
Millennials already constitute the largest share of the American workforce. And According to PwC, by 2020 they will account for 50% of the global workforce. The Millennial generation is demanding, they expect so much more than just a nice office space. They want fast career progression, regular feedback, easy access to technology etc. I know what you are thinking now ‘could you please stop talking about Millennials, other generations matter too!’. You are perfectly right, all employees irrespective of their age, gender or profession deserve a great workplace.
After all, on average we spend 23.3% of our total waking hours over a 50-year working life-period at work! That’s quite a lot, so you as an employer should make sure it’s time well spent.
