Are You Supporting Your Remote Employees?

on Jan 8, 2020 9:45:00 AM By | Ultimate Software | 0 Comments | Employee Engagement Remote
According to a worldwide study, approximately 70 percent of global employees worked remotely at least once a week in 2018, while 53 percent telecommuted closer to half the week. These figures are significantly higher than studies from previous years, where Gallup found that 43 percent worked from home at least sometimes in 2016 (and 39 percent in 2012). As telecommuting acceptance and the number of remote employees continues to balloon, employers must learn to appreciate the significant value remote employees bring and support their unique needs. If you have ever worked from home, then you know how it feels when you are truly supported as a remote employee and how it feels when you aren’t.

Engagement Is Really Just Connection

on Jul 3, 2019 10:26:00 AM By | O.C. Tanner | 0 Comments | Company Culture Employee Engagement
The modern workplace is disconnected. Although the Internet and social media give us a sense of connectivity, we’re more disconnected than ever before. Employees send emails (or texts) to people that sit a couple of desks away instead of just walking over to chat. Leaders have no idea what people are working on, much less what their individual goals and dreams are. Employees would rather work remotely because they don’t enjoy the office atmosphere. And we’re seeing lower morale and well-being in the workplace worldwide than ever before.

I can make doctor appointments and see my lab results using an app. If my flight is delayed and I miss my connection, the Delta Airlines app will automatically rebook me on the next flight. It’s those little things that make life easier. And if individuals can get that experience in their personal lives, it could drive the employee experience they expect it in their work lives.

on Mar 20, 2019 10:53:00 AM By | Lilith Christiansen | 0 Comments | Onboarding Employee Engagement
When employees aren’t happy at work, they aren’t productive. Happiness at work is about feeling engaged and fulfilled–being confident, challenged and comfortable.
