1. Transparency

The upper level decision-makers of companies simply cannot get away with the gatekeeping of important information anymore.  If decisions are being made that can affect others in the organization, it’s not only expected, but demanded that that information be shared with full transparency.

they’re being taken advantage of or lied to, they will absolutely leave, as they should!  Make sure to keep the communication channels as open as possible between levels of your organization’s hierarchy so that your team feels trusted, valued, and in-the-loop.

2. Amplification of Employee Voices

This point is sort of an extension of transparency. Letting your employees know what’s going on and being honest with them is the bare minimum.  The next step is to actually listen to what your team has to say about what’s going on. The people within your company are truly your core. Nothing happens without them. .

2. Amplification of Employee Voices

That’s why it’s imperative that their thoughts, feelings, and feedback is not only heard, but acted upon.  Again, keep communication channels open and encourage your team to speak up about anything they may want to address without fear of negative repercussions.

3. Equity

It’s no secret that professional opportunities are often unfairly distributed.  Things like DEI initiatives and lessons are absolutely necessary, but at the end of the day, those don’t translate into monetized opportunities for marginalized people.  It’s time to, literally, put your money where your mouth is. If

4. Work-Life Balance

Over the past couple of years, we’ve learned that life is short and time is an extremely precious thing.  We’ve realized that work simply cannot take priority over our personal lives.  In order to stay competitive and attract new talent, employers need to push for an acceptance and encouragement of having

a healthy work-life balance. Start by examining your PTO policies. See if there’s any room for flexibility there, or offer monthly mental health days.  It’s time for all of us to accept that we can’t just wake up to work. We need to wake up for ourselves with work just being a part of our day.

5. Relationship Building

The last thing new hires want to encounter at their new jobs is workplace toxicity.  Having a good relationship with your manager and your team can and will make or break the new hire experience, ultimately deciding if they stick around or leave.  That being said, we have to live in reality and realize that people

6. Balancing a Remote/Hybrid Team

We’ve reached the practically indisputable conclusion that we can be just as productive, if not more, from our own homes.  That’s why remote work isn’t going anywhere.

7. Prioritization of Mental Health

We are finally reaching a point where mental health is being seriously considered in the professional world and implemented into things such as benefits packages.  This is a fantastic and necessary first step. However, it’s time to prioritize mental health in your day-to-day at work as well. We’ve all directly experienced how overwhelming

8. Focus on Employee Development

The big thing used to be company loyalty. Now, it’s individual growth potential.  Younger people in the job market tend to have no plans of sticking with one company for the next 35 years of their lives. Their primary interests are opportunities for positions and skills growth as well as pay increases. This is another
