VOL 22.08: A focus on employee engagement is one of the biggest trends
Quality Tools/Concepts   »  
(September 15, 2020)
     

A young lawyer working late into the night because it is expected of him. The small business owner is unable to sleep because his customer is late with a payment. The freelance designer scapegoated for the corporation’s ever changing brief. The account manager driven crazy by bureaucracy. The doctor trying to save lives with ever diminishing budget. Ship’s captain trying to meet the arrival deadline because of adverse weather.

Work stress- in all its different forms-is everywhere. Some have it worse than others but we can all relate. Even if you work for yourself, even if you are the boss, there’s always someone higher up, the allegorical chequebook- waiver, hovering over you ready to make or break the day.

Up until quite recently, this was as accepted as what’s called Life. Go on with it .But with many feeling the opposite-that in fact their lives are being put on hold for sake of their work-in the new digital world of increasing transparency and heightened expectations, the workers are revolting. Today, to attract and keep the best talent, the onus is on organisations to provide a productive, engaging and –yes- enjoyable experience.
