According to HR News, over one-third of UK employees are currently exploring a change of job because of the rising cost of living. This is because, in the majority of cases, any salary increases that may be on offer from their existing employer simply can’t keep pace with inflation.
Unsettling and troubling world events continue to test employees’ resilience levels to the limit. This, in turn, keeps the pressure on employers to understand their workforces’ changing needs, in order for companies to move forward productively.
As the world continues to change, employers depend on building strong teams that can flourish irrespective of the circumstances. But at the same time, attracting and retaining staff with the right skills is becoming increasingly challenging.
Long before the pandemic, organisations depended on a remote workforce that has often proved difficult to engage. They typically have less access to email. Their working patterns vary. Too often, they feel voiceless within their organisation. It’s time to connect with this “deskless” workforce.
Employee retention has never been harder, and flexible employee benefits can make all the difference. But too often they are difficult to update or introduce. So Zest has changed the game: great tech, easily implemented in as little as a month.
