Organisations are facing a war on talent. Those that don’t address the needs of their employees will find themselves unable to create an adaptable workforce that contributes to the transformation of the business.

To understand this better Workforce Software conducted a survey that measured employee experience in areas like scheduling flexibility, pay policies, and assistance with personal circumstances.

In almost every category, employers and employees had significantly different perceptions – employers reported implementing flexible and rewarding policies and practices, but employees tended to disagree.

Key findings of the survey

  • Most employees prefer to work for an organization that addresses their individual needs with scheduling flexibility and tailored pay structures.
  • A sizable number of employees feel that they don’t receive adequate job training, scheduling flexibility, or task-based pay structures from their employers.
  • Employees who use online portals report having more scheduling flexibility and greater levels of recognition by their organizations.
  • A significant percentage of employees feel their employers have not effectively adapted to the unique scheduling challenges of the pandemic.
  • These perceived deficits in the employee experience are hurting engagement as well, thus limiting an organization’s agility.
