Adopt Perks That Adapt to a Fluid Workplace
The Future of Work in America will be fluid. The office will still play a vital role, but it will be more of a perk than a necessity. It will continue to be a source of connection, collaboration, and innovation. How, when, and where people work will be much more purposeful.
Because we will be returning to a fluid situation, a culture founded on Employee Care principles becomes even more important. The in-office experience and the work-from-home experience is inherently uneven, so creating a more consistent, cohesive employee experience becomes paramount.
The job of the HR leader will be to adopt perks and develop programming that can bridge this divide. This is precisely what inspired our Work-From-Home Wellness Boxes, and the reason we’ve seen so much success with it. Perks like these, that can be scaled not just up as a company grows, but across a diverse and dynamic situation, can become the connective tissue that holds your team together.
For our organization, Employee Care isn’t just a guiding principle for the way we function internally. It is a foundational concept for the brand and product we put out in the world, the way we solve the most pressing problem for our customers. In effect, we’ve transitioned from an workplace experience company to an Employee Care company, and we’re here to help organizations and people everywhere do the best work of their lives, no matter how, when, or where that work takes place.
