Today, people strategy is all about meeting the needs and demands of the workforce – not only current employees, but candidates for much-needed roles. This power shift arises from the skills and labour shortage in the wake of the pandemic, and it's seen organisations rethinking and readjusting their approach to every aspect of the employer-employee relationship.
This month, we look at some ways in which the power shift has manifested and how employers are responding to make themselves more attractive to now-scarce talent. We hear from futurist Ravin Jesuthasan, Global Leader for Transformation Services at Mercer, and Nick Lynn, Senior Director of Employee Experience Consulting at Willis Towers Watson; from Bentley de Beyer, Global Head Human Capital, Goldman Sachs, and Shruti Tandon, Director of People Enablement, Nagarro. We gather the observations of industry experts and leaders who have been up close with the changes in the work environment.
Employee needs and expectations today carry so much more weight in strategy than before; it's an entire ongoing journey to adapt and reshape the way things are done.
