Tech leaders need to think about the huge shift in employee mindset since the pandemic began including:
• Employees are people before they are workers.
• Work is just one aspect of life
• Employees find value in their work based on human elements, not just job benefits.
In a candidate short market, leaders who keep an open mind, think differently and have a proactive attitude will outperform their competitors. A human-centered Employee Value Proposition is required which includes the following:
⭐Shared purpose and values by prioritising social issues aligned with company's goals.
⭐Focus on interpersonal connections by integrating inclusion and building employee trust through empathetic conversations.
⭐Provide flexibility tailored to the role and individual
⭐Provide personal and professional growth opportunities
⭐Focus on employee's health and wellness
