How to win the war for talent
You have probably experienced the fierce talent competition yourself. Research shows that there is a talent shortage of 45 million in developed economies. On top of that, employees no longer choose a career-long relationship with a company, they switch jobs and employers more often than ever before. The result? Businesses are held back and miss out on growth because employees feel free to leave.
1. Understand the needs of employees
Employees from the newer generations often work whenever and however they want. You need to be aware of what employees need in order to perform to the best of their abilities. Collaboration helps employees to feel part of a company and excel in their careers. The workplace can stimulate this by having plenty of brainstorm areas, huddle rooms, and coffee bars. Technology can monetize user behavior and give you valuable insights. With this data, you can adjust your office to the changing needs of employees.
2. Give flexibility
Flexibility leads to a higher level of autonomy and employee well-being. 59% of millennials say flexibility also improves their productivity. You can give employees flexibility by implementing an activity-based working concept. This way of working gives employees autonomy in the workplace. Technology empowers employees to find the right work spot in the office.
3. Build a community
For younger generations, it is more important than ever to work at a company that makes a positive impact. They are looking for more than a job to pay the bills. If employees really feel your purpose, values, and goals, they believe the work they do, has a significant impact. A community can help employees to feel connected to the physical space, your company values, and each other. Technology can help build a community, and make employees feel part of a group.
4. Create the best place to work
