Technology that puts the employee at the forefront allows the employee to feel seen and supported, thus combating post-pandemic burnout. Focusing on employee wellness creates an environment of respect and trust within an organization, encouraging more productive employees. Increasing employee wellness improves employee productivity, leading to revenue growth.
In today’s age of hybrid and remote working, it is essential for employees to feel connected to their organization, despite their physical workplace. HR leaders can utilize data to build connections amongst employees. By analyzing data on which employees are working together, and how engaged the employees are, HR leaders can tailor their offerings to increase employee wellness. With the insights generated from this data, HR leaders can understand where they are excelling and where improvement is needed. Data that highlights employee-perceived gaps in HR performance allows HR leaders to improve their performance, improving employee trust in HR.
Omni-connected experiences are increasingly important as trends continue towards hybrid and remote work environments. These experiences allow employees to feel connected to one another and their organization regardless of physical location. This culture of connection encourages employee productivity. By unlocking productivity retention, omni-connected experiences lead to revenue growth.
Static management of employees leads to barriers to advancement. Proactive, flexible management models, such as flexible staffing models, encourage growth and discourage burnout. Furthermore, technology allows HR leaders to directly promote employee wellness. Algorithms, such as the one utilized by PTO Genuis, analyze employee behavior to find stress triggers and address them as soon as they are discovered. This technology also urges employees to utilize their personal time if they have not taken time off. When employees use their paid time off, they combat burnout and therefore become more engaged.
An employee-driven payroll system allows employees to have more control within their payroll, thus increasing trust in their HR department and organization. Utilizing an employee-driven payroll system allows each employee to enter their work hours and gain more visibility into their paid time off, pay cycles, and other important payment information. This not only improves an employee’s understanding of their financial health but also benefits the organization. According to research conducted by PwC, a reliable payroll process increases an employee’s trust in their employer. Furthermore, employees who worry about their financial health are less effective than those who do not.
