Nothing reveals character like a crisis

Posted in Employee on 12 August 2020 By Darryl Mead, Head of Employee Experience

Nothing reveals character like a crisis and this period has shown that most businesses have done a brilliant job of putting their people first. Communicating, listening and responding.

Stronger connections have been formed. Old boundaries removed. Accessibility has increased. Productivity has been maintained. Personal time has been enhanced for many, while others struggle with working at home or unplugging after the work day has finished.

As we emerge, the entire work experience is changing forever. We’re currently grappling with what this means to Emperor, from an organisational, blended and flexible-working perspective.

Employee communication has never been so important. Here we reflect on some of the themes emerging from this period and some of the ways in which we’re helping clients improve their employee engagement.
