The last couple of years have been challenging (to say the least!) for employees and employers in the United States and around the world. Seemingly rapid changes in workplace dynamics have led many workers to leave their jobs and companies are having a hard time wooing them back. Work-from-home policies, implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, have eased, but they remain uneven across many industries. So, what can human resources leaders do to meet these questions?
Marc Detampel, managing director & practice leader, talent and organizational performance for Felix Global, appeared on the HRD Talk podcast with John Corrigan to discuss the challenges COVID-19 placed on the workplace in general and HR leaders, in particular. Marc shared strategies that management can use to keep employees engaged and the organization moving forward, despite the constant changes in workplace policy.
In this wide-ranging interview, Marc and John also discussed what defines “work/life balance,” the effect of the Baby Boomer generation retiring, how critical STEM skills are key in the modern workplace, and how HR leaders, who are often in the center of these complex and ever-changing issues, can help to keep their organizations on track and in compliance.
