Insights from Vodafone: How Workplace Technology is Broadening Talent Pools and Driving Superior Employee Experiences
It is well-known amongst successful business leaders that organisations that provide a great employee experience see this trickle down to their customers. As Richard Branson says; “if you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients.” As such several businesses have implemented new employee experience optimisation strategies to ensure their staff can deliver customers and clients the best possible experience.
The strategy making the most noise however is flexible working, which encourages a greater work-life balance, allows employees to fit daily life activities around work commitments, and creates more diverse and inclusive talent pools – allowing your business to hire the brightest and the best.
With a recent study by UK based Hydrogen Recruitment indicating that 81% of employees look for flexible working options before joining a company, 65% of employers finding that people are more loyal if allowed to work flexibly and 58% of parents choosing flexible working in place of a 5% pay rise, the way forward is clear.
In support of flexible working, talent attraction and better employee experiences telecommunication’s provider, Vodafone Australia, has begun a two year workplace transformation that looks to normalise and encourage flexibility through strategic technology upgrades and a cultural shift.
