A big change in 2022
The biggest change post pandemic is the emergence of a new work model – Hybrid Workplace. Employees will have the flexibility to conduct work from not just their ‘work desk’ in office but also from a variety of ‘digital work spaces’. This model is about giving the best experience to employees without compromising on productivity, or safety. It also provides organisations with an opportunity to choose from a diverse talent pool, drive productivity and also relook and save on cost structures.
With the emergence of digital collaborative tools and use of technology, organisations have gotten tremendous opportunities to innovate and mature in their ability to engage with employees, along with their customers.
Will internal mobility help in retention
In 2022, internal mobility will be a priority, particularly amongst Millennials and Gen Z and those whose career paths were disrupted due to the pandemic. This strategy is a cost effective way of filling critical skill gaps, whilst boosting employee retention and reducing turnover rates. The current trends show that employees will focus on jobs that provide a ‘sense of purpose’ and offer them a full career with developmental opportunities.
