Changing the Way Companies
Think | Engage | Connect
With Their Employees
CULTURE IS VALUES LIVED.
The Great Resignation and Reshuffle is real. Employees seek connection. Employees struggle more than ever with work-life integration. There is the inherent need and desire to belong. Employees want to matter, employees seek meaning, understanding and support and access to meaningful resources.
Burst Coaching is that structured approach: A confidential sounding board, feedback, and solid individual support in partnership with your company.
WHY IT TRULY MATTERS TO YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION
The answer, ultimately, comes down to your industry, your organization, and your people. There’s a constant disconnect between how people currently work and how they want to work. We can no longer talk about work - life balance. All of us are truly invited to discuss and solve the challenge of work- life integration. While almost every industry plans to leverage remote and hybrid models at least on a case-by-case basis, our research found that some are more readily inclined than others.
Technology and Telecom are most likely to adopt a full- or part-time remote model moving forward (68%), while Education is the least likely to (28%). Given the digital nature of tech, it’s perhaps no surprise these companies feel most comfortable with remote and hybrid work.
Employees in their very nature as human beings are gradually learning to adjust and companies are invited to provide new ways of engagement and support to the employees.
Isolation, feeling disconnected, unsupported, not listened to, alone - all that is real to employees and requires an urgent response on the employers side.
THE STATE OF THE GREAT RESIGNATION AND RESHUFFLE
For employees, this Great Resignation isn’t simply a matter of quitting; it’s an opportunity to strike off on something new. Of those who have considered a career change in the past, 57% are thinking of leaving their company within the next 12 months.
The big question, of course, is “WHY?” Why are employees so eager to pack up and leave?
One possibility is that workers feel unsafe physically in their current jobs due to ongoing health concerns. However, when asked whether they feel comfortable working on-site or in an office from a health and safety perspective, nearly 80% of employees said yes. What’s more, this average was relatively consistent across industries—for retail, sentiment was even higher than 80%. So what else is it about?
Burnout is impacting managers and their teams alike. While 36% of respondents said they feel their manager is burned out, that percentage only increased when it came to personal fatigue and co-worker fatigue. According to respondents, 40% said they feel burned out, and 45% said their team members seem burned out.
Fact is that the old way of work won’t work for many much longer. The concept of “hybrid work” - splitting time between home and office - has dominated headlines, begging the question: Can employees really have the best of both worlds?
The answer, ultimately, comes down to your industry, your organization, and your people. There’s a disconnect between how people currently work and how they want to work.
And that means is for all of us to finally engage | rethink and take action!
