The Covid-19 global pandemic and economic uncertainty has created unprecedented disruption to our work habits, personal and professional lives. The impact is generational and effects every strand of our work force. In March as individuals, we had not experienced, nor built the resilience or tool kit to deal with the change we had to face and the restructuring of our day to day lives.
As restrictions begin to lift, businesses will be looking at their own strategy for the future, be that returning to ‘the office’ or continuing to ‘work from home’ – one thing that is clear and is commonly accepted, is that the way we work has changed forever.
A business that manages this change, effectively engaging with its employees, will emerge as a more resilient and thriving organisation.
Explain has over 20 years’ experience of working with organisations to support their employee engagement strategy, providing solutions which lead to insight, which in turn delivers action.
In our experience, during this time of change, an engagement strategy with employees is necessary to help them to better navigate the situation and to keep them connected, in this blog we share some examples we have used with our own Explain team during lockdown:
There has never been more of a need for effective and meaningful employee engagement. Any business, of any size and scale, needs to place engagement at the top of the agenda. In the coming weeks and months, if you get it right, you will drive higher engagement and alignment which in turn will lead to greater productivity, customer loyalty and employee retention.
At Explain we have vast experience of working with the NHS, private businesses, and government agencies to design employee engagement strategies that in turn deliver insight. We have a number of solutions to support you to manage change, for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly or call us on 0191 261 5621 to discuss your needs.
