After a surreal employee experience in 2020 and an uncertain one in 2021, everyone wants a better employee experience this year, especially HR professionals. In fact, according to research, more than 90% of employers plan to make ‘enhancing the employee experience’ a top priority. Many companies think they’re doing a great job at employee experience just by offering basic benefits like PTO and health insurance to their team. However, if you want to provide your employees with a great experience in the workplace, you must go above and beyond.
Employees are the essence of your organization, and their productivity and performance determine the overall growth and success of your organization. Given that, it is imperative for you to have a highly productive workforce. But, cultivating a productive workforce and maintaining employee productivity is not as easy as it seems. It requires actionable strategies that not only work at the superficial level but address the things that impact employee productivity at the core. Mental clarity, overall well-being, and energy level are some examples of things that affect employee efficiency. If your workforce doesn’t possess mental clarity or appropriate levels of well-being or energy levels, it is deemed to be unproductive or perform below its true potential. Now, the question is how to address these core factors that determine employee productivity? The answer lies in ‘Zen practices’.
Ramadan is here, and organizations all around the world have employees who have started to fast and observe the holy month. As some of your employees begin to fast from sunrise to sunset and take part in spiritual practices, their usual daily routine changes due to disrupted sleeping and meal times. With that said, it’s important to find ways to support them and help keep their motivation levels up during the entire month. Here are a few simple things you can do to support your Muslim employees this month and help them find a balance between their professional duties and religious requirements.
Employee satisfaction is an intangible but powerful tool that can create a more engaged and productive workplace. It’s not only important for individual productivity but also benefits the entire company. Happier employees do their jobs better and stay with companies much longer than their dissatisfied counterparts. By retaining these employees, you’ll reduce overhead costs and improve profitability. That’s why it’s essential to catch up to the changing needs of your workforce and keep your employees satisfied.
Unlike exit interviews, which help companies determine factors that caused employees to leave, stay interviews help you stop turnover in its tracks. Stay interviews are the newest trend and allow you to assess the levels of engagement and satisfaction in your organization. They highlight issues early on and build trust with your employees, which will end up reducing the need to perform exit interviews at all. Engagement surveys and exit interviews are still essential but here’s why stay interviews are also important.
