The world of work has evolved from what it once was and what it could be. The pandemic played a key role in making employees realise what they ultimately want from their professions, jobs and careers. In the last few years, organisations have made it a point to adhere to and even go beyond the expectations of their workers with flexible work arrangements, personalised benefits, leaves to support parents who’ve adopted, pet parents and surrogates, child care leaves, gender affirmation surgery leaves, fertility leaves, menstrual leaves, increased insurance cover, fitness membership, financial consultation, health and wellness programs, pay transparency, mentorship, sponsorship, educational aid, skills development and medical facilities onsite, among others. But does every employee has access to these benefits?
While there are innumerable benefits offered across industries, the recent economic downturns brought to light a different aspect of employers. There is so little infrastructure and policies designed to hiring workers who have been laid off or even the inhumane process in which some of the organisations laid off their loyal employees. To understand how the two sides of the coin impact employees and employers, People Matters brings to you its annual conference around Total Rewards and Wellbeing, where over 500 people and culture leaders will discuss, deliberate and divulge the secret to harnessing the power of care, from people to business.
There is a belief that workers are given all the resources that they need to do be their best version at work, but there are obstacles and barriers invisible sometimes to organisations. For example, there are firms that offer skills development initiatives for individuals but more often that not, employees are unable to choose the ones they love because of budget constraints. There is always debate around transparency and pay, but some keep struggling to make ends meet while others in the hierarchy are unperturbed by recession or inflation. As for motivation, employees are unable to decide what the next steps at work should be, which is why, they are hopping from one firm to another in search of these benefits, without finding the one.
That’s why at People Matters Total Rewards and Wellbeing Conference, we have decided to discuss all the issues that leaders and employees have in the era of AI. With over 40 global luminaries including Luke Coutinho, Debra Corey, Lakshmanan M, Paromita Roy, Shifu Kanishka Sharma, Dr Nandini S, Aayush Jain, Sangeeta Chandran, Navin Chaudhary and Anurag Dixit, among others, there is so much you can learn from these thought leaders and experts over 30 sessions spread over two tracks. With unique formats of sessions curated to leave you with maximum learnings and takeaways, we also have one of the largest expos with the latest innovations designed, just for you.
The idea has always been to envision a future of work where there is passion, purpose and fulfilment, and not disengagement, unproductivity or crippling stress. So, join us on November 7, 2023 at The Leela Ambience, Gurugram for an energising conference. And we know, the date is embedded between your holidays but we think this is an event you wouldn’t wanna miss, especially with the 1+1 offer. So, register now!
