‘The workplace is evolving at a fast pace - it's a great opportunity to attract and retain the best talent but employers must adapt and can't afford to stand still.' Elizabeth Judson
How things are changing....
Organisational turbulence and related unmanageable levels of stress are increasingly becoming part of everyday experience in the modern workplace, negatively affecting the bottom-line, employee performance, workplace culture, and the health and wellbeing of employees. This is not sustainable.
At the same time, we're seeing an increase in the expectations that employees have of their worklife experience which Hummingbird believes has arisen from the fact that new generations entering the workforce have different needs to previous generations. This creates an opportunity to move away from the old-style 'factory' culture and harness new expectations in a way that makes the best of great talent and keeps up with current trends and technological advancement.
