Our collective experiences over the last two years have shaped not just how we live our lives, but our daily working patterns, and how we behave towards each other. Every one of us has been affected, and, at some point, has reflected on our lives before COVID-19 emerged. Similarly, organisations have also taken the time to look at how they now need to position their businesses for the future; key to that is to create, or revisit, their employee value proposition (EVP).
This recent period of reflection has empowered employees to consider whether their employers have values which resonate with their own, and whether the actions they see day-to-day reflect those values. It seems that many employees have decided to vote with their feet. The recent press coverage of the so-called ‘Great Resignation’, and the fact that there were over 1.3 million job vacancies in the UK in the first quarter of 2022, seems to have heightened the discussion around retaining and engaging workforces, and ensuring that their experience in the workplace is fulfilling. A new ‘war for talent’ has begun, and organisations need to create compelling reasons why employees, or prospective employees, should decide to stay, or join, the organisation. Creating and maintaining an employee value proposition is critical to this.
